A Reflection Of My Green Living Initiatives

OK~ I'm being reminded that Earth Day 2012 is quickly approaching through a ton of media sources. So, I began to ponder my "green living" initiatives. Here are my random thoughts:


  • I do use re-usable shopping bags when I do my grocery shopping. I do question how often I should be washing them, as I'm sure they can get pretty yucky. Have you ever thought about what has been sitting on the check-out stand before you set your re-usable bag down? I must add that I really do like carrying my own shopping bags, as they are so easy to handle; as opposed to the piles of plastic bags that it takes to fill one of my own bags.
  • Our light bulbs are all the new style and I will admit they do not burn out as often as the older ones. The frustration I have with these bulbs, is that we have a light fixture that was purchased and installed five years ago that does not accommodate these new bulbs. So.....the cover is not on the fixture. But hey, who looks up at the ceiling while in the bathroom?
  • I do not throw trash out of my car windows. I witnessed three people this morning, while sitting at a stop light; tossing their partially lit cigarettes out the car window- one of those things that makes you go "ummmmm."
  • I am excited to plant our garden, we just need some warm Iowa weather and we can get those seeds in the ground.
So- In the grand scheme of things, I'm really not that "green" of a person, but I am trying to make a difference in my little corner of the world. For now I will ponder and think how I can continue to make our world a little greener. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
