Also, all green plants act as a carbon sink. One of my goals this year was to put in some fruit trees. Each act of tree planting around my yard counts as a carbon offset amount. I planted...four fruit trees and several food bearing shrubs.

I hope to get more food bearing trees in this spring. Hopefully nut trees.

I have two more green goals for this year. My plan is to use less than 400 gallons of water a month and less than 400 kwh of electricity. I am not far from these goals now, but i am excited to do better!

Also, it's another year and time for another rainwater barrel.

Just to update, I have solidly whacked those goals in the buttocks. I now use far less than 100 gallons of water in a month and only 1.2 kWh or electric. smile

Still need that fifth rain barrel though. smile

I have been doing all I can for many years now. I recycle everything that is recyclable even the smallest of things (this year my province FINALLY started collecting food so we now have a compost bin), I close the lights when I leave a room, I close the water in the shower while I use the soap after putting my shampoo on, when I am alone I only flush after going number two (thats the only thing i never was able to change my parents with as far as the environment is concerned - that and also mom always leaves the water running when she is brushing her teeth) and I never leave the water on when I wash my teeth or anything else I only turn it back on when I need water just like in the shower.

I would love to live in a place that the energy comes from green energy so that is my green goal.
