terra, not terror will discuss some earth-friendly activities going on around the world. We like to keep up on the progress that’s being made to create an earth-friendly, healthy, less expensive, safe, energy-efficient place to live. We love doing whatever we can to save money, energy, and resources, so let’s all share and learn together.
This will be a positive space for us to share what we’re doing to reduce our footprint. We hope you enjoy reading about efforts to help our planet.
We plan to write often, including theme days! This page will evolve over time, and we hope you check back once in a while to see what fun things are going on in the “green” world.
We’ll post some of our favorite vegan/vegetarian recipes once a week. We will always cite the sources of our recipes, including links to purchase the books online. If you like the recipe, check out the book to enjoy more healthy, earth-friendly food.
Terra is Latin for Earth, and is also my name. We should focus on living in harmony with the earth, not living in fear.

Tour the blog
Read the del.i.cious news for informative articles about environmental news. There’s some pretty cool stuff there, and only some of it will make it into a post.
The “Story of Stuff” is a fantastic series about waste. They also teach you about bottled water and even why carbon offsetting isn’t such a great idea. I highly recommend the videos.
When you click on one of the “popular topics,” you’ll see all the posts about that topic.
We’ve listed links of some of our favorite websites for more “green” stuff and local blog stars.
Finally, a list of recent posts, and an archive.
