As a Green Living Blogger, I wanted to do something special for Earth Day to Honor the Earth. So I am organizing a giveaway hop with Debbie of DeDa Studios so each of us can give something back to one of our readers.

If you’re a Green Living Blogger, or just a Blogger with an interest in learning more about going green, I invite you to join us for this event!

Here are the Event Details:
