I wrote a post last year around this time ("Gonna Make a Change"), just thinking through some changes I could do as an individual to help our earth. I've stuck to these, and it's been awesome. My city makes it so easy to recycle glass, aluminum, plastic, cardboard -- just put it out with the trash in a blue bag. Plus there are paper/magazine drop-offs at every school & plastic bag recycle containers at my grocery stores. Now that I've started separating paper & plastic bags, I am AMAZED at how much we were throwing away in the past. NO EXCUSES left for me!
So here's my "one little thing" that I have decided to change.....
Lately, I've been using more cloth napkins instead of paper napkins. I am self-proclaimed "napkin fiend" - meaning I use a lot of napkins all the time. (Hey, this girl does not like to be a mess!) Anyway, I need to get some more cloth napkins so I don't have to wash them every day, but I know it will be a great investment.
Less paper in the landfill, more money in my pocket.
Have you made any earth-friendly changes lately? Feel free to comment.
