For Earth Day this year I decided to use less paper towels. Every time I go to grab a paper towel I stop and make sure I use my dish towel instead and I have started a rag draw so that you can grab, wipe and go instead of always doing quick clean ups with paper towels. It's really been a pretty easy switch.

We are starting a compost bin for our home grown veggies this year! My boys love to eat herbs, veggies, and fruit straight out of the garden. We are also participating in a CSA this season, yeah, can't wait:)

Happy Earth Year! I own a used bike, which under my one-year ownership hasn't been used to its fullest greenest potential. Thanks to more decent weather and the cheerful sight of cyclists pedaling happily around town, I decided to invest in a bike pump and I am 'biking' my errands, including my weekly trip to Whole Foods. It is so much more enjoyable than driving (decent weather provided), and it is a great green alternative to walking! The problem is that I live in Boston, meaning the bike goes when winter befalls :( So, seasonal resolution aside, I am going to make recycling my year-round green resolution, starting with paper. I hate to admit I don't sort my trash. Everything ends up in that one trash can and one trash bag, sometimes two... But this contagious Green Movement thing going on is beginning to knock some sense into me. Over the last few days I have been dismantling a tower of paper pulp ready to be recycled. This five feet tall mass of lecture notes and journal articles is an unsightly product of four intense years in college...who knows, I might need some of this later, right? Well, all it has really done is create clutter. It is time to de-clutter and recycle! Luckily my town has a curbside recycling program, and I am going to use it!

It would be best to integrate practicality and creativity in our daily lives in order to reduce waste accumulation. Recycling or reusing paper as well as plastic products shows that we care about the conservation of our natural resources. We can even save time and money by finding ways on how to reuse our items. Paper and plastic products are the most wasted materials everyday and this should be stopped. If we have to dispose them, let us do it properly so that they do not just get piled up in land fills - they still serve a purpose, we just need to find them out.
