Happy Earth Day!!! Reduce, Reuse, Repent
Knowing the stewardship we have over the earth and with my husband being a biologist we have become a bit greener lately. I am very ashamed to say that up until a month ago I had never recycled. We had a family home evening lesson on how we are stewards over the earth and need to be responsible so we have gone full force into a reduce, reuse, recycle plan!!! Hooray, we love it. Every time I throw another container into the recycle bin I feel so good about myself (little victories are important). It is crazy that more than half of our trash is recyclable. We have also changed other things in our life as well. Choosing more whole and/or organic foods when we can and always taking the time to cook a planned meal. We got Green Works cleaner, which works great, and energy saving light bulbs, both at Sam's Club so the price was nice in bulk (is that an oxymoron: ecofriendly in bulk:). Sam has also started making bread instead of buying it. Our ultimate going green effort was done involuntarily. In February our car broke down so for a month we went everywhere on bikes. I loved going to the park with the kids in the bike trailer...so cute. So forget your past sins and move to a greener future:) The Earth is Great!!!
