Going green

So, at dinner we were talking about a commercial that we saw on tv about everyone doing their part and going green. We don't go too green around here since we are Beaver fans and the Ducks are green... ANYHOW, we started talking about how we could better conserve our resources and what we already do. Like, we feed all of our food waste to the animals or compost it to the garden. We switched to cloth napkins- the kids had read that the average person consumes 11,000 napkins, well with our little family of 7 that is a heck of a lot of napkins. Noah being the preteen boy that he is has volunteered to take 1 for the family and has announced that he is willing to do his part by not taking any more showers and giving up homework. What a guy...

That is really great! If we all do our part we can really make an impact. We have been gradually making our lives "greener" over the past couple of years. I like the cloth napkin idea, we'll have to do that. We also compost and recycle.
