Green Update

So, the road to being green is really a tough one. Just a mind game really, I guess, for me at least. Last night we went to Crate & Barrel. I brought my green bag in... but I couldn't do it! I kept thinking "these C&B people are going to laugh at me if I give them a green bag to load my stuff in". And I didn't give them my green bag. Wow this is really embarassing to admit, but it must be done. I must share my successes and failures on the road to green.

But GREAT news on the paper bag front... starting in early 2008 we are getting ROLL CART RECYCLING. I just read this in the "trash newsletter" last night (Geoff made fun of me for reading it). Now we have these red bins that we have to sort everything into - into those paper bags as mentioned previously. Well starting next year, we will get a big bin and we don't have to do any sorting (except for glass which will continue to go in a red bin). AWESOME! It makes it easier, there is space for more recycling items, AND I don't have to use paper bags for recycling anymore. This will DEFINITELY cut down on my paper bag consumption! So that is happy news.

I thought I had some other highs and lows on the road to green, but I cannot recall them right now. I did forgo a bag at two other stores last night though, which was good.

I promise, my blog isn't going to turn into "the green blog". :)

so i was just on msn and on the front page it listed a few headlines that made me think of you: "are organics really worth the extra cost?" and "a new wine country".

anyway, turns out going green is way better nutritionally: http://green.msn.com/articles/article.aspx?aid=295>1=10725

While some entertaining Red Bottom Shoes expenses dollars: an amusement park, a very good meal out, a trip to Vegas, or that hilarious new film, there are several enjoyable actions that don't cost a dime. Give your partner the present or being a slave for per week, which includes the requisite master or mistress verbiage, pulling your forelock, bowing or curtseying, and backing out in the space. The results is often very amusing, primarily if carried into public or in front with the kids.
