It's not easy being GREEN

TEN things I do in an effort to be GREEN
While researching things we could do to become more GREEN I've discovered we're off to a really good start. Here are ten GREEN things we're already implementing at the 'Nest':
  1. Change regular bulbs to CFL (Compact Fluorescent Bulbs)
  2. Use a programmable thermostat (and actually program it to reduce your energy bill)
  3. Recycling (we have TWO 35 gallon bins that we fill every week)
  4. FREECYCLE - give things away and keep them out of the landfill. Your JUNK really is another person's -- well -- let's call it JUNQUE
  5. Use reusable shopping bags (we have a few but need to get more)
  6. Only use washer when full (are they kidding??)
  7. Shower vs. Bath (who has time for a bath anyway?)
  8. Drive carefully and combine errands (reduces gas consumption and speeding tickets at the same time)
  9. Plant a tree (she's only a sapling but wants to do her part by providing shade for our home when she grows up)
  10. Fly Less (I can honestly say that I have ALWAYS done this) LOL
