Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day 2009! Lately my family and I have been doing as much as we can to try to be "Green."


Here are some of things we're doing:

  • Composting
  • No more pleastic water bottles - we have water delivery twice a month, and fill up our stainless steel bottles for when we go out, and use glasses when we're home
  • Organic, local produce delivery from www.farmfreshtoyou.com - a sustainable, local family farm
  • CFL light bulbs
  • Re-usable bags, everywhere - not just the grocery store
  • We planted a veggie garden, with some of our favorites (lots of different bell peppers for me!) and we're hoping to only use produce that we've grown or had delivered
  • Filling the dishwasher up ALL THE WAY - this was a hard one for me, but I've made a conscious effort to only run the dishwasher when it's completely full, and to not use heat to dry them.

I know there's more that we can do, but it's a start. Happy Earth Day to you and your family!

Proud of you girl. I took CRL lights to my Mah Jongg group today and gave them each one, filling the dishwasher is easy for me because I don't have enough shelfs for dishes. gma
