How Did You Spend Earth Day?

It pays to have friends in high places, or should I say, it pays to have friends in the entertainment business!

I was in L.A. this weekend, catching up with old friends. My friend 'W' recently started working for an entertainment company that owns posh nightclubs and restaurants in the Los Angeles area. Needless to say, since I was seeing him after a year, he made sure he took me drinking style.

We were VIP's at a posh bar on Sunset boulevard; they played the best music, fixed the strongest cocktails and, I had an amazing time. (Thank you WP!)

As cool as the place was, they used re-usable plastic glasses and had jazzed-up recycle bins in their restrooms. Hows that for super-cool?

Lesson learnt: You don't have to loose the diva in you to be a little more world-friendy.

Here are 5 World Saving Tips to do your share without losing your social life, your pocket book or your sense of style:

1. Change a Light Bulb
2. Donate used goods: " One person's garbage is another's treasure"
3. Water.. don't waste it
4. Use your own bag. Canvas bags cost under $5 and can be found in many stylish designs.
5. Walk, Bike, Carpool, Ride the Bus, Take the Light Rail.

My friend 'S' takes his own tupperware for lunch "to-go". That saves styrofoam / paper to-go boxes.
