Happy Earth Day
Fox Business has a story about the five worst excuses for not going green.
That is my big excuse – it is expensive to buy organic and to install solar panels. But CFL lights don’t cost much more, and either do Method cleaning products if I buy them at Target – just got to make sure I’m not driving to Glenwood just to go to Target.
Neither does my vote, but i still do it anyway.
I just read that residents of NYC have the lowest carbon footprint. That due to more public transportation and the ability to buy local. Living in a more rural area, I rely on imported goods and have to use my car some. But I’m also able to ride my bike to work, and the new food Co-op has locally grown food.
The only green product i found that doesn’t work as well are dishwasher cubes. So I buy powder instead.
Easy things to start? Change lightbulbs, grow a garden, set up a compost bin, ride you bike.
