Every Little Bit Counts

In honor of you and me, and everyone else living on this planet, I thought it worthy to try and spread some do-good, earth-happy blogging. I will post just five *simple* things my family and I do to help make this world a better place. Then I will post one thing I am not yet doing but *WILL* start doing immediately. I encourage (and ask you please!) you to do the same! (Try to pick something simple if you can so that others can get some good ideas they can use.) Let's see how far we can spread the idea. Not only will we each help the planet a little by implementing a new eco-friendly practice, but hopefully we can share and exchange some great ideas.

Five simple things we do now:

1 - Buy energy efficient light bulbs and rechargeable batteries.
2 - Unplug all of our appliances when not in use. (We have a lot of kitchen equipment with clocks!)
3 - Teach Thomas about the importance of saving energy and conserving resources.
4 - Use Greenback Search as our search engine of choice.
5 - Buy paper products (paper towels, napkins, etc) made from recycled materials.

One thing we will start doing now:

Buy and use reusable grocery bags.

If you choose to participate please leave a comment. I will follow the link to your blog in search of more ideas. (If you don't have a blog you can still spread the idea!)

Thanks and happy posting! Have a great weekend!

Oh, and yes it is that time of year once again. I am now accepting donations for March of Dimes. If you are interested please visit my personal page for more information. Thank you and good night!
