since it was just earth day i thought i would take a look and see how im doing green wise..

-14 months and never bought a disposable diaper or wipe - cloth all the way baby!

-have not bought a pad or tampon in three years! - diva cup / cloth pads

-have drasticly cut my use of paper products down to almost nothing - use my own coffee cup (almost always) , no paper plates/cups, very limited use of paper towels.


-live in a dry cabin so no wasted water. all water is used and what goes into the slop buckets goes into the compost pile.

-also heat mostly with scavanged/found wood so only 200 gallans of heating fuel burned per year!

-compost! Woot Woot!


-eat almost exsclusivly organic - including in the summer farmers market and the veggie farm coop.

-carry my own bags to the store or use no bags - or i reuse the plastic bags as trash bags.

-bath / shower 3 times per week so i've cut down water consumption there - and of course at home i have an outhouse so no water is used.

-unplug everything if not in use! and of course fancy energy saving bulbs in everything.

Thanks Molly for sharing, i forget what a big deal it is some time living in town, with all the water wasted. A grey water system helps, also re-using water from dishes in town to mop the floor maybe helps thats what we do. It really is smart to make the change where we can.
