Join Live Earth in support of the Art of Living Foundation/ Stand Up Take Action's Mission Green Earth Campaign. Eight years ago, at the Millennium Summit, 189 country heads committed to work together “to build a safer, more prosperous and equitable world for all by 2015.” Mission Green Earth is one program in support of the seventh goal of the campaign: to ensure environmental sustainability.
This year, participants can show their support by joining Mission Green Earth in planting trees EVERYWHERE.

Greening the 4th of July sounds a little impossible doesn't it? And sort of un-fun. So in a departure from our usual "What's Greener?" format here on the Live Earth Blog, we'd like you to tell us about your independence - or your dependence!
With the warm days of summer around the corner (or already here at our home base in Los Angeles) we've been wondering about the best ways you've found to keep cool. What are the options for making it through summer without sweltering, but without wasting energy? Have you found ways to keep your home cool without air conditioning?
