Happy St. Paddy's Day to cyberspace! No, I am not Irish, but hey....aren't we all Irish on March 17? Just like we are all Mexican on Cinco de Mayo. :)
On this very greenest of days...thought I would blog about some ecofriendly stuff. Now, in my ideal world, I would be as Earthy Crunchy as can be. But we don't live in this world. But I am trying to make small steps toward being more carbon footprint conscience.
One thing that I did a few months ago was buy reuseable "paper" towels. Actually, they are made from the same material that cloth diapers are (not the big bulky ones). A friend makes them in her Etsy store, and I bought a set to try out. And I LOVE them. They were $11 (I think) for a set of 10 (or was it 12?)....man, I am a big help here. But anyway, they are wonderful and I am thinking of ordering another set.
ETA: I hesitated on posting a link because she is my friend from "a different world." But I decided that my user name here, and THERE are different, so I will chance it. But I would love to throw some business her way, and like I said, I am very happy with the product. So here ya go: AthenaCreates.etsy.com
I used to go through rolls and rolls of paper towels. Now, 1 roll will last me forever and a day. I still use the disposable kind for really messy clean-up (cat puke comes to mind....) and for wiping off washed fruit. But the ecofriendly ones do a terrific job on my day to day things. I keep them in a small basket on the counter, so they are easy to grab.
I am toying with buying reusable sandwich bags. Sassy Girl takes sandwiches almost every day, so I know that I would use them. I just need to hope she would bring them home and not toss them!!
What eco friendly things do you do? How much Green are you saving by going Green?
