Anything you are working on in your life to make more green? Have you made any life changes (small or large) or do you need ideas on how to incorporate eco friendly actions into your other life goals?

I follow basic rules to save some energy like switching off the all home appliance when it was not in use.I do not over use water.

carolinaaram, that's great that you do that! We often forget to switch off appliances when not in use, which creates a large energy drain.

One thing i find helpful for small appliances is to connect things to a power strip, and to just turn off the strip entirely when things like a toaster, coffeepot, microwave or whatever is not in active use.

I always use reusable cloth bags. I hang them on the doorknob to my garage. I used to forget them a lot and I would feel horrible.

That's a great idea, Maria - so they are always ready to go when you are on the way out. :-)

I have a bunch of totes I keep in my car, and one that lives all folded up and tiny in my purse. My CVS Green Bag tag lives on the handle of that one.

I do accept the plastic bags though, when I run out of them at home. they are perfect for cleaning out the litter box, and as small trash bags around the house.

I think i will work on an article for reusing plastic bags....hmmm

Does keeping my house plants alive and well, count as a green goal?

House plants create oxygen, so that is great!

You know, I don't think any of my goals are green-related. That's an interesting thought. We should all try to add one green related goal onto our goal lists!

Well, I do work to rid my house of books and magazines in a green way, which is in this realm. So I'll keep working on that.

AnneE, house plants absolutely do their part to make your indoor air healthier to breathe. I've read that indoor air is pretty bad with carpet glue, monitor output, paint fumes, plastic outgassing and the use of cleaning chemicals all wafting around the air. Among other things. smile

One thing I try to do is air out my home for 20 minutes a day, even just by cracking a window in each area. And I did just pick up some houseplants at Walgreens (2 for $10) to help absorb toxins. I got a spider plant and a corn plant, since those each absorb different toxins.

So getting and caring for your houseplants is a good green goal.
