Going Green

It’s the lastest rage, right?
Going green.
Well, it’s the right thing to do for the environment and can be very frugal as well. Which is right up my alley. Here’s what we’re trying to do….

* We no longer buy water bottles. One by one, we bought PBA free reuseable bottles at the store and now only use those. We have four good ones, and one that I put in the dishwasher on the bottom shelf, don’t do this!! It mishapes the bottle!! It’s still useable, but the top is harder to get on and off.
* We use less paper plates. We have regualar dishes, but paper was always easier to clean up with. Well, now we only use paper occasionally. I’m still training my son not use paper bowls for snacks. I even put plastic bowls on top of the paper bowls so it’s easier for him.
* We recycle. We did before, but now I look at everything to see if there is a recycle symbol on it. I’ve found more items to recycle (contact lens cases, chip bags)
* We use cloth shopping bags (when we remember!!) I’m getting better.
* Use less paper towels. I bought some cheap washclothes a Target and use them more often.

What have you done to be green? Let me know, I’d love to learn more ways.

I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!

    We also recycle. I recycle at work too. My boss does not. I walk at our local ball park before work a few days a week. I pick up plastic bottles there and recycle them.
