Go Green


I'm always looking for ways to help the environment, so I thought I would post some of things that I do to help. Maybe it will give someone else some ideas.
1. I use reusable shopping bags at the grocery store and Target.
2. I pick up trash when I am out on a walk.
3. I have energy efficient appliances, including a front loading washer.
4. I use cloth diapers.
5. I turn out the lights when I'm not in the room.
6. I recycle most everything and use the backs of paper and old envelopes for lists.
7. I use Method cleaning products which are non-toxic.
8. I turn off the water when I brush my teeth.
9. I have a tankless water heater.
10. I use a reusable water bottle filled with tap water.
So, those are good things, but I have a long way to go:
1. I drive an SUV.
2. I leave the computer on 24/7.
3. I like to have my house really cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

you are better than me....there is no way i would do cloth diapers...and i put the dirty ones in plastic bags i get from grocery store. ha! but i should start bringing a bunch of those back to the store and have them pack the groceries in those again. i just find uses for them (ie garbage!)
