The more I learn about "going green," the more I want to "go green" myself. In fact, the more I learn about going green, the more I realize that my dad has been doing green-type-things on his own before they were popular (at least I don't they've become popular till recently, but here's a good article with some historical information), so I've had some exposure to some great ideas already. Ahh…my dad…the pioneer! lol…jk
Though my memory is a bit fuzzy, I remember a few things from childhood he would do that are pretty green: planting & maintaining his own vegetable garden, keeping a compost pile, and juicing (though maybe the last one isn't truly "green" but is just something related?). I wonder if he knew he was being "green" back then? I see we're going to have to have a chat next time I'm home so I can better remember. I'd also like to talk to him about why he did those green things.
I found an interesting article whilst browsing the web today that I'd like to share: "Top 10 Tips to Go Green" (from sarasnow.com). I'm inspired by this article and by Sara Snow to want to go more green. In a Get Fresh with Sara Snow DVRed TV show I watched last night, Sara explained that going green doesn't mean you have to start over. Rather, you can make small changes in your life to make it a little more green over time.
As for us, we are on our way, making small changes to be more green : We already order that organic food delivery, and we have some of those energy efficient lights suggested in the article, so to continue, I think I'm going to do a new project, time allowing: Fabric Grocery Bags! I'm going to try to sew some this weekend. Yay for crafting!
Do you do anything to be green?
