This week's SPT challenge had impeccable timing, since today is Earth Day and all. That sneaky Lelly, I bet she planned it that way. You can't get anything past her.
While green IS one of my favorite colors, I must admit I don't live the best Green Lifestyle. This does weigh on my conscience at times. Other times, when I am driving my SUV, with the back filled with plastic grocery bags and an Ozarka water bottle tucked in my purse...notsomuch.
I watched the Oprah's Live on Less Challenge last week and actually thought to my smug little self, "Well, we're not THAT bad."
But. We aren't great either.
Since I am a firm believer in the Baby Steps approach to most things, I am going to apply it to going green. Here are some things we already do, and some things I plan to do.
We already recycle newspaper, cans and plastics. Thankfully we have curbside pick up, otherwise...
Buy reusable shopping bags. And use them.
I have adopted Kristi's method of recycling boxes for Good Mail.
I pledge to use my Nalgene bottle more and the little bottles less.
*Plus, I wore a green shirt in honor of this SPT and of course Earth Day. HeeHee.
I know as a family we can, and should do more. I also pledge to learn about other steps we can take and try to add a few new Green Habits this year..
