Trying to be more GREEN!!!

Well, here it is folks, we are trying so hard to be more GREEN. We want to be more green for our world and so that we have a world to leave to our children and our childrens childen. We also hope that this will help teach our children to do the same for their world.

So, here is a list of what we are doing...
1. No more paper napkins at home (we made our own cloth napkins and wash them)
2. No more electric clothes dryer (as much as we possibly can)
3. Use less water (in shower, in toilets, and everywhere else)
4. Capture as much rain water as we can to reuse in the garden (or for animals)
5. Grow as much food as possible (fruit, veggies and even meat and eggs)
6. Try to fertilze with rabbit, chicken and other animal waste
7. Compost as much as possible and use in the garden
8. Drive the small car as much as possible insted of the durango
9. Waste less food, eat leftovers more
10. Use Freecycle as much as possible ( http://www.freecycle.org/ )
11. Do not purchase any single bottles of water, use reusable bottles insted
12. Switch all light bulbs to compact fluorescent light bulbs
13. Keep thermostate higher in the summer, and lower in the winter
14. Use it 'till it is worn out, used up and other wise no longer usable (waste on want not)

So, here you have it, our small list of things we are working hard to do (or not do) so that we may be "more green" for our planet.

What are you doing???
