Greening up.

We are trying to become greener in the way we live. We have done many things to make this goal a reality. We replaced the bulbs in our Golden lighting fixtures with CFL bulbs. I try to air dry as much of our laundry as possible and turn off electric appliances whenever they aren't in use. Recycling is now a habit that even our children are used to. A couple of weeks ago I switched from laundry soap to using soap nuts and am really happy with the way they work. Instead of buying meat at the supermarket we have ordered a half of a grass fed cow from a local farmer. I am now collecting canning jars to store the food we hope to grow in our garden this year. A shipment of composting worms is on its way to our house for the new composting bin we built. I think that is a pretty good start don't you?
