go green ! !

you may be confused by this title, me being a spartan and all.

truth is, i don’t even own anything anymore that even mentions michigan state. or the spartans. and i don’t bleed green. (i think i heard your gasp from here…)

what i do want to talk about is about BEING green. not bleeding, or wearing or shouting green.

    ok, i'll start….

    i love to use re-usable bags….plastic bags are a waste!(mine are even cute!!)
    recycle all plastic, glass, paper and cardboard!
    i only buy stuff i need
    buy local, it not only tastes better, it's better for the environment!
    i read labels…!! if i don't like what's in it, i don't buy it!
    unplug it when it's not in use!

    ok, you're next……..! (and don't worry, i have more…)

    I recycle what trash I can, use public trans, shop my local produce market, use re-usable bags and water bottles, turn off/unplug what is not being used. When heat or a/c is in season I program my thermostat to use less energy when I am not at home….

    In addition to all of the previous posts…I also reuse water by using a rainbarrel to sustain a purely organic garden (tomatoes, beans, eggplant, cucumber, peppers, herbs,and squash). I also drive a small, fuel-efficient car and clean the air filter often. I also conserve gas by keeping the tire pressure within the optimal range.
