So here's my personal Eco Check List of things I do and things I would like to start doing for the environment. Share your own list in the comments section, so we can see all the little ways we are making a difference!
*I bring reusable hemp shopping bags everywhere I go.
*I recycle all my plastic, cans, glass, paper, etc...
*I eat 100% organic, and also from local farmer's markets.
*I buy sustainable, vintage, organic, fair trade, or natural fiber clothing & accessories when i need something "new".
*I would like to have a full house water filtration system, because for health reasons I still drink bottled water (spring/artisian) and feel the bottles are wasteful and not healthy themselves due to BPA contamination. (But i am highly sensitive to any amount of chlorine).
*I cut down on "extra stuff" and keep only the basic necessities for furniture, cooking, gardening, and general living.
*I walk ALOT. I fill up my truck with gas about once every 4-6 months, and live in town so I can get everything I need without having to drive.
*I would like to own my own house, rather then rent because I feel I could do so much more to be energy efficient if I had full rule over my domain ;)
* I am on a medical diet, I can't buy bulk food which reduces plastic/packaging waste, because of the gluten dust on dried goods... this one REALLLLLLLLY bothers me. I really want the whole dusting food with wheat thing to stop so I can go back to earth friendly bulk buying.
*I cook all my meals, 3 x's a day.
*I donate anything I don't use to local thrift stores.
Now it's you turn!!! :)
