When we talk to the kids about "going green" we use the phrase "reduce, reuse, recycle."
Long ago the phrase was
"use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without."
There is talk everywhere of going green. I feel a little torn.
I like the idea of going green.
But I like my conveniences. Things that have been invented that upon using I think "WOW!"
Here are a few of my favorites that I just don't know if I want to do without.
disposable multipurpose wipes
disposable toilet bowl cleaner/scrubbers
(those last 2 are wonderful in helping my kids to get involved with the cleaning)
yummy smelling candles
So here is a list of things that I can do. And that I will do. That I am already doing.
stopping drips form the sink
mulching our lawn clippings
switching out lightbulbs
using linen napkins
recycle our newspapers
And here is another short list. Something I can do to change.
Return all the plastic bags to the store after shopping (walmart) & not take plastic bags home for small trips.
What is hard for you to think of not using? What are you currently doing? What is 1 small change you can make?
