We have been doing a lot of "greening" around here for the past few years.
We practice the 3 Rs, Reduce-Reuse-Recycle,like religion.
Our light bulbs have been changing over to more energy efficient choices, we use a
low flow shower head and faucets.Even our toilet is a low flow pressure assisted model.
We garden organically, so we naturally compost and use water barrels. We also use our
"gray water" for watering plants inside and out as much as possible.We are also looking into
verniculture in a serious way.
We have been working to make our home more energy efficient every year we have owned it,
and although we are far from living "off grid", we are always trying to reduce our footprint.
We recently starting making a much stronger effort to not bring plastic or paper bags into
the house and use our many canvas bags instead.I have always washed and re-used our
plastic lunch bags and foil, but recently we ordered these to further eliminate our "lunch" waste.
The biggest green thing I have done is in raising my daughter to be "green", from nursing to just
plain teaching her by example that we make choices every day that affect the entire planet.
She loves her "mother planet earth" and practices her 3 Rs every day.
What are you doing?
