We Are the World Blogfest

It’s the last Friday in July, and time for some good news to take you into August with a smile. The post I’ve chosen to share this month is about a process called “carbonation” and how green sand, made of olivine, can help reduce the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in a process by which it is returned to the sea in another form to be stored in shells and coral structures. Many thanks to Carol Thompson for sharing this article with me.

  1. Another fantastic way to help the environment. Great find Amy. Sorry my old computer doesn’t let me ‘like’ on WP lol. I’m going thru what you did awhile ago. 2 laptops finito in one week, I’m on my clunking desktop. Hope it holds up til new laptop arrives some time next week as none were available in stores. I think the ones doing best biz is computer sales for homeschooling, teachers upgrading, etc. So thanks for letting me vent LOL 🙂 hugs x

      1. Amy, it just arrived! Early! I’m so excited! And oh, wanted to mention, that book review on The Hate U Give? I caught the movie last night. Just wow! I’m sharing Sunday on my movie review day. ❤


      2. Yay! We lost our power Tuesday morning and it came back on last night around 10, a full three days before it was supposed to, according to the electric company. So I’ve been thinking a lot about the things we use all the time—isn’t it incredible how little we can accomplish without our computers? And electricity? I’m glad you’ll be full speed ahead soon!

      3. I’m looking forward to your movie review. I don’t usually watch the movies that are made from books I love, but there are exceptions. I have not seen The Hate U Give.
