What I Want to Do:

Things I'm Doing to Creat a Sustainable Life...
  • Recyling everything possible
  • Composting all food and lawn scraps
  • Using dirty paper towels, wood scraps, dirty cardboard scraps for kindling instead of tossing it (we have a wood stove).
  • All bulbs have been switched to CFLs
  • Appliances that don't need to be on all the time are plugged into power strips that are turned off when we don't need them.
  • Wash all clothes and towels in cold water
  • Hang dry clothes
  • Buying locally grown and organic food from the Farmer's Market and Co-Ops
  • Started telecommuting two days a week for work instead of driving, saving 185 miles every week.
  • Collect paper and container recycling at work
  • Repair torn clothing instead of throwing it away or using really beat clothing for cleaning rags
  • Buy clothing, books and other odds and ends from the Salvation Army and tag sales
  • Buy used items from Craigslist
  • Painted our house with Harmony Zero-VOC paint
  • Insulated our attic with recycled cotton insulation
  • Insulated all of our hot water pipes and hot water tank to save energy
  • Buy only recycled toilet paper and paper towels
  • Buy organic food whenever possible
  • Bought a natural latex bed (barely used) from Craigslist! (cheaper and saves on materials)
  • Use organic cotton bed sheets and blankets.
  • Use rain barrels to collect water for watering plants
  • Grow some of our own food
  • Do free donation clicks every day! And play
  • My fiancé David drives a diesel run on locally made biodiesel.
  • I drive a fuel efficient used small car (though when that dies, I want to get whatever best fuel-efficient model is out)
  • Eat a vegan diet
  • Installed water-saver faucet caps and shower heads
  • Use tank banks in our toilet tanks to save water
  • More to come as I think of them!

About Me I make my living designing web sites. But, my passions include creating music, art, jewelry, sewing, and other visual and audio projects. My fiancé and I are working to make our home and lives carbon neutral and earth friendly. It is a slow process, but we are doing it step by step. We are working on a music project together that we hope to inspire and spread a message with. My goal is to create beautiful and inspiring things that pass on a message about the change we need to see in the world. I am working to discover more each day what this will be...
