Yesterday was Earth Day. Ever since we have had this water shortage in our area, Bill and I have been trying to conserve more. We watch the news most every night and see stories from around the world about the shortages in food, the price of fuel, and the harm that is being done to the environment. There is no one to fix these things but ourselves. It is important that we all be a green as possible.
1. Changed our bedroom lights to energy efficient light bulbs
2. Bought a rain barrel
3. Gotten canvas bags for grocery shopping
4. Recycled everything we can
5. Both use mugs at work instead of using paper cups
We have been trying to do more and more. We have talked about getting a compost bin as well.
Do you have any ideas for being green? Please share whatever you have done - I would love to do more to support our environment.
