How Have You Gone Green?

Yes, I believe we should be good stewards of this planet the Lord has created for us.  So in honor of Green Day or St. Patrick's Day I am giving you the few ways I am green.  Feel free to add anything you do to be environmentally friendly!

The ways I am green:

Eat mostly organic food.  Stay away from chemicals and preservatives.

Use vinegar, water, splash of dish soap and peppermint essential oil to clean.

Line dry almost all of my clothes. They last a lot longer!

Garden...a little.

Turn lights on only when needed. Use the heater only when it is real cold.

Use appliances and cars until they are truly broken or crashed.

Have very little clutter and seldom go to malls. Love clear counters.

Cook almost everything from scratch. SO much better for you.

Don’t use chemicals in my yard except for very rare circumstances.

Recycle as much as possible.

Compost...a little.

Use natural remedies when we are sick. VERY rarely use drugs.

Make my own laundry detergent, deodorant, skin lotion, bread, and kefir.

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Habakkuk 2:14
