This week my DH came home with paper towels made from recycled paper. This is because he loves me, because he rolls his eyes a lot when I say with energy: "Save the Earth", especially when it involves NOT taking the elevator. He also tried to purchase CFLS at the local drugstore, but they were out.
I picked up on this article from my friend Corinne's blog...go NYC! Unfortunately, I don't take cabs much, but at least by 2012, I know if I do take a cab, it will be GREEN.
This week I FINALLY remembered to carry around my reusable bag. As a result, I took home my Duane Reade, Old Navy and Staples purchases in that bag...even forcing some clerks to re-bag my items. Each time I explained that I was saving the earth, so I feel that that was a good deed too.
I also purchased another cleaning agent from Method, as I gradually turn over my cleaning products to all green-worthy. And I picked up some 7th generation laundry detergent to try.
I am now in the process of researching this company, who deliver locally-grown produce to us. However, I am having a very difficult time understanding the pricing situation, even after I emailed them. Maybe I will have my financial whiz DH look it over. If it doesn't work out, at least I can continue to support locally-baked cupcakes (within reason of course...cholestrol).
