I am trying to buy more organic fruits and vegetables (especially the 'dirty dozen') eggs and milk. I don't shower daily, and never run the water while I brush my teeth. I have gotten my husband to eat a lot less meat than he used to, and we eat out a lot less. I make as much stuff at home from scratch, instead of buying over packaged crap at the store. I juice carrots for my husband so that he can actually have a good home made drink to have. Yeah, I would actually have to juice about...60 POUNDS a WEEK for him to have all that he could drink, but at least I try. I am SOOOOOOOOOO far from where I want to be, it isn't even funny but at least I try.
The Dirty Dozen fruits and Vegetables
My family has made some great strides in lowering their waste--in NO this list is inclusive, and I'd love for people to add to it!
My mom used to go through literally cases of bottled water each week. She bought a reusable bottle, and gets reusable gallons of water from the store and fills them now. She took a big step, and saved a lot of money and helped the environment.
My aunt uses plastic shopping bags for kitty litter, and doesn't use paper towels. She recycles like a mad woman even though it requires a lot of sorting and having to drive to site in WV.
What do you do to help the environment? Shower less (or even better, with a partner?) Do you take your lunch to work, recycle, use a lot of Tupperware?
I would love to get a discussion started here!!
