Red: Hey fellow bloggers, my title is catchier than your guys...Nani Nani Boo Boo.
Fellow Bloggers: *Grumbles amongst themselves* Yeah she is right...you can't trump Kermit...she's got us.
I love the Muppets and moreso Kermit. He was the one who got it all started. Kudos to Jim Henson. But the only connection is the fact that he is green and I want to be green, and I am not talking about my skin or my hair color (that is already out there on the color wheel), I am talking about doing anything and everything possible to help our planet, and trust me, she needs help.
I have been reading other bloggers and what they are doing to help Mother Earth and then compare it to what I do and I am not doing as bad as I thought. the one thing I am slacking on is my composting, which my daughter and I are working on this week. We saw a show on Planet Green and there was a couple in an apartment and they were able to compost in a big plastic bin, and we have just had come available here at the house. So our new journey begins.
I have recently started reading a new blog and she described something I have not experienced. She said that when she takes her reusable/canvas grocery bags...she gets looks. I get people saying that they think it is cool, and they still grab the plastic bags...old habits I guess, but they applaud my efforts. And one of the baggers that I know from our local grocery store. He was joking of course when he told me this, but he said he asks people if they would like to kill a tree or choke a fish. And if you think about it...it is true. I know, I am standing on a soapbox, but as I grow older, I feel more passionate about the world around me and how I will leave it to my children and my children's children.
If you have never seen the book(s) Tightwad Gazette, may I make a suggestion and check it out at your local library and if you find it at a garage sale or flea market...snatch it up, you will never regret it. It is not so much a green book, but in saving money, you are being green. My friend has this book and I read it for a while but trust me, it is well worth the buy. The numbers are outdated, but the premise is sound. Better in my pocket then theirs.
