“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” Mahatma Gandhi

  • Stop using paper towels, use washable rags instead
  • Buy reusable grocery bags instead of having your groceries bagged in plastic
  • Carry reusable water bottles and coffee mugs
  • Recycle
  • Hold yourself accountable

A few months ago we watch an interesting documentary called No Impact Man.  It raised our awareness of the impact we are truly making on the planet.  Prior to this I never gave it any thought really.  We are so detached from the food we eat and the waste we create that we never stop to think about the process it took to get here or where it goes.  When we know better we should do better.  Noelle and I have since started making a few changes in our house, we stopped using paper towels, bought a few reusable grocery bags (1 buck a piece), stopped getting drinks in throw away containers.  We would love to hear some more simple changes that can be made.
