Hi Everyone,

It’s been a while since we have posted to Greenista, we’ve been off busy doing other things, launching companies, building empires, you know how it us.  Just kidding guys, we have been pursuing other entrepreneurial dreams, but we’ve also stayed true to our Greenista Girl selves.  Still recycling, being green, reusing, reducing, and of course - trying plenty of cool green products, which we always love to do.

So follow us on Facebook, we have plenty of fun new things in store for you!

-Shivani, Neha, and the Greenista Girls Team

Oprah's Lifeclass on OWN

I honestly think EVERYONE should be watching this.  Oprah is taking the lessons she has learned in all her years of doing the Oprah - this is a fantastic spiritual class, practical class, and really overall life class.  I tivo the show and watch it the next morning when I do my morning on the treadmill.  Neha loves watching the webcasts live on Facebook right after the show - they go so in depth and are just amazing.  Tune in, you will not regret it!

Check out the site!

Earth Day Fun Facts

Brianne

Earth Day is this Friday, April 22nd (Yah)! And although us Greenista Girls love to celebrate it every day, this day is especially close to our hearts. So do something nice for the planet today and spread the word with these Earth Day eco fun facts.

Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch a TV for three hours - it’s equivalent to half a gallon of gasoline.

Earth Day is a relatively new holiday and was first celebrated on April 22 in 1970. More than 20 million Americans participated in this first Earth Day celebration

Earth Day was founded by a senator of Wisconsin and the day is credited for creating the environmentalism movement.

April 22 is the first official day of Spring in the Northern hemisphere and of Fall in the Southern hemisphere and was chosen to be Earth Day for this reason.

Never underestimate the importance of recycling: if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year. Unfortunately only 27% of all American newspapers are recycled.

More than 20,000,000 Hershey’s Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil. All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it.

Only 11% of the earth’s surface is used to grow food.

The world’s first national park was started in 1872 at Yellowstone National Park in the US.

The first major international conference on environmental issues was held in Sweden in 1972 and was sponsored by the United Nations.

The first wildlife refuge was formed on Pelican Island Florida in 1903.

The patron Saint of ecologists is St. Francis and the first proclamation of Earth Day was made by the mayor of San Francisco in 1970.

Tell us how you’ll celebrate Earth Day on Facebook or Twitter.

Bonus Fact: A highlight of the annual Earth Day ceremony at the United Nations is the ringing of the Peace Bell that was given to the UN by Japan. It is made from coins given by school children to further peace on our planet.
