Gettin' a little greener!

As many of you know, we are trying to be a little greener and nicer to the environment.
We diligently turn off lights when we aren't in that room, I unplug all phone charges each morning, our thermastat is turned off for the remainder of the summer, and we ALWAYS use our reuseable bags when grocery shopping. All were small things that we have simply gotten used to, so it was time to add on to the green efforts.
While Ken was away at his pool tournament (sadly his team did not win!) I crafted my little heart out. At the top of that craft list were these reuseable sandwhich bags. No more throwing away all those ziplocks that have only been used once. Yep, you can put anything in these that you would put in a sandwhich bag. When we are done, we just toss it into the wash and use it again.
I am very proud to be doing my part to make this world live a little longer. I am also very proud that Ken makes his best effort to do the same! We are making small steps at a time so we don't go over the edge and run back to convenience products out of frustration. Little by little, these steps become part of our everyday life and we don't even give them a second thought.
If you do only one thing to help slow the destruction of the earth down-get rid of your plastic! Bags, bottles, and containers are the main culprit.
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. It really is that easy!
