Happy Earth Day!
so this earth day has started with a bit of drama. my husband called me just before 9 saying there was a demo crew waiting to tear down the garage in the lot next door. the lot that i just paid for yesterday! after a few frantic phone calls and help from a co-worker i have 24 hours to get the demo stopped instead of the 20 minutes i had this morning. who does demo work on earth day?! i mean come on...i'm trying to RECYCLE this structure.
one of my resolutions this year was to be more self-sufficient and less of a consumer. i finally got the hybrid car that i've been drooling over since they've existed. i recycle and make my own laundry detergent and cleaning products. i'm planting a huge organic garden in my new lot next door, cut out paper towels and paper napkins, and am using recycled content toilet paper. also, in my work practice i'm trying to incorporate more eco-friendly finishes and educate clients on the advantages of doing so. oh, and i turn all the lights off behind my husband. ha.
what have you been doing to be more green? i want to know your tips and advice.
