As gas prices continue to soar and future fossil fuel energy resources remain uncertain, it’s the right time to become pro-active in exploring ways to live a more sustainable lifestyle. This can be accomplished at the individual level by looking for ways to improve efficiency and clean energy usage in the home and local community. We were pleased when we learned that Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen was hosting a major Eco-Expo right here in Montgomery County. With numerous participating organizations (including Whole Foods) and a variety of activities, this event promises to be both interesting and educational.
