It's Earth Day!
In celebration of Earth Day, here are a few ways we try to be green. I hope everyone will try to do one small thing to be more environmentally friendly. Feel free to share what you do or plan to do.
M wears cloth diapers.
We use Nalgene bottles instead of buying bottled water.
We use reusable shopping bags instead of plastic.
I *try* to use sponges and cloths rather than so many paper towels.
We can't take credit for this, but our home uses all energy efficient lightbulbs.
We recycle paper and plastic.
I believe that reusing something is also a way of being green so we try selling used items on sites like Ebay,Craigslist, etc.
Freecycle is even better because you can give or get things for free!
We rarely buy books. Instead we use the library or I love and HIGHLY recommend www.paperbackswap.com!
