I am not the greenest person in the world besides my diet, household cleaners and personal care items. I recycle when convenient though if it uses too much water to wash out like a jar of tahini or nut butter I figure tossing it is actually a greener choice.
I don’t always remember my cloth bags but since reading Storm’s article “The Wasters” I am now determined to make that a more consistent thing. Oh, and we got our electric bill down to half of what it was by just being more conscious.
Other than that, I have a long way to go. But today I rode my bicycle to the supermarket – not the health food store as that is too far — and as I bought my little organic produce and put it in my back pack, wheeling my bicycle through the check-out line, the middle aged checker smiled at me as though I had given him hope for the future. That felt great.
It was also a good feeling to know I was saving oil, and I am inspired to really try to set up my lifestyle in a more green fashion, especially finding ways to eliminate driving from my life as much as possible.
Ultimately I’d love to live in a green home, grow all my own food, wear only green clothing, and use all green products. And of course live in a raw, green community. But for now I’ll enjoy my green diet, ride my bike more often and work on remembering my cloth bags!
Going Green – order of importance (I think! – for me)
– Driving Less (or not at all, or a hybrid, electric, solar, or veggie oil car)
– Eating Organic
– Eating Vegetarian, Vegan or ideally Raw Vegan (no packaging!)
– Eating Local as much as possible (less trucking and supports local organic farmers)
– Chemical-free personal care
– Chemical-free household care
– Living Simply (less stuff!)
– Green products
– Supporting green businesses
– Green furniture, housing
– Green appliances (Greenstar)
– Energy-saving techniques and products
….Help me out, – what am I missing? (Leave comments below)
One green thing I’m not a fan of is cloth diapers! Generates way too much laundry, the babies aren’t dry and therefore are fussy and uncomfortable and get diaper rash, and it is gross to wash them out in the toilet or to wash that stuff down the laundry room drain! When they are newborns it isn’t as bad. That’s just my o)inion/experience.
