Earth Day 2008 'Green' Home Improvement Tips With Brad Staggs, Host of Talk2DIY

Podcast available at

RIDGEWOOD, N.J., April 21, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Earth Day was created in 1970 to create environmental awareness and help stem the tide of pollution on the planet.

An estimated one billion people around the world marked Earth Day 2007. And, with gas prices going through the roof, water shortages in the West and increasingly ominous threats of global warming, this April 22nd is expected to be the biggest event ever.

The reduce, reuse and recycle mantra has now been extended. There are hybrid cars and even environmentally-friendly cosmetics. But you don't need to buy a $30,000 hybrid to do your part. There are simple things people can do around their homes to help with the big picture.

"When it comes to the home, green is the new black," says DIY's Brad Staggs. "It's not just about protecting the environment. It can also save you money and add value to your home." Brad has advice on everything from easy DIY ideas like painting with "green" paint to more long-term projects like adding insulated siding to your home.
