Earth Day - My Way.

What did you do for Earth Day?

I was feeling kind of bad because I didn't officially do anything.

But then I thought about it, and the 'green' things I do everyday. Such as:

- I hardly ever drive. Today I needed something from the grocery store and drugstore and we walked, 3 miles round trip.

- I conserve water. Like some days I don't shower and I only flush the toilet after number 2 - mostly because the only time I get to go to the bathroom is when the child is napping, and his room is right next to the bathroom and flushing wakes him up! Yes, kind of gross, but it does CONSERVE WATER! I bet a lot of busy moms do this everyday and don't even think about it.

- I keep and reuse all my yogurt and sour cream containers. Great for leftovers.

- I compost. Actually, I create all the waste for the compost and my wonderful husband puts it in the bin, takes its temperature, and turns it. He's all scientific about it and stuff. Whatever works, right?

And I'm sure there are a bunch of other little things I do, more in the name of being cheap - but hey, today, I'm calling them GREEN.

By the way, if you want your website to totally freeze up with traffic, have Oprah mention your product with a discount. I finally got on the SIGG website - they are offering 20% off with the code 'HARPO', and To Go Ware is also offering 20% off with the code 'TOGO20.' I'm ordering this from SIGG. How much does it look like my blog?! So groovy!

Those water bottles are SOOO cute! I like the one you picked. I have been meaning to switch to non-plastic but I need the wide mouth so I can transport lots of ice. Gotta keep my water ice cold when at work and only a full 32 of ice will last the day!
