So Cory and I don't hug our trees, we definately are not environmentalists, and we are not convinced that global warming is going to kill us all by 2012! We do however feel like there are some things that we can do that will help old Mother Earth along. We bought some canvas bags to carry our groceries home in (Laurie I thought you'd like that one) and we switched to green cleaners. We buy the clorox green works cleaners. They are comprable in price and they smell so much better. We buying some bricks tonight to put in the tank of our toilet (voila, instant water savings without buying a new toilet) and we'll be switching out our old bulbs as the die with the energy efficient ones. And did you know that the average American uses 3 times more water then their lawn actually needs. Heres an easy fix. Get an old Tuna can (clean of course). Water your lawn until the can is full and you dont need to water again until its empty (we're totally gonna do this one as well). Plus if you let your lawn grow and stay at 3 inches, it holds in water almost twice as long. And I think it looks plusher as well!
I don't want to get preachy. I don't believe that this earth is going to give out on us before the Savior comes again, and I don't think that we all need to go organic and start wearing burlap sacks instead of blended fabrics, but weren't we given this Earth to be stewards over it. I know its not much, but Cory and I are going to start trying to be better about doing our part to be GOOD stewards of this Earth. We hope it makes a difference.
