Gradually going green....

There has been so much talk lately about going green. I do realize it's important but for a lot of people, it's a bit overwhelming to even know where to start!



So I'm taking baby green steps. A few of the things I've been doing:

I'm now recycling all paper, glass, plastic, and metal that I can.

I no longer get my milk in bags, but just carry the jug. (simple, but it adds up!)

I have plants in my house to contribute to air quality.

I'm opening windows and using fans, rather than relying on the air conditioner. I know this won't last all summer but for now it's working.

Growing a small garden.

Walking more rather than driving everywhere.

And the biggie for me, using the clothesline rather than the dryer.

I love the shot of the clothesline and the blue skies.

Oh, I wish I could take credit for the clothesline shot, but I have to admit I swiped it from the internet.

It's a great picture though, huh?
