Tending To Low Hanging Fruit

When even putting shoes on seems to be a monumental task.  I thought I’d reflect on some easy green things for me to do which I haven’t done enough of.

1. When boiling water, I now cover the pot.  It’s a waste of energy to boil without the lid, and there’s really no good reason for it.

2.  We use a lot of onions in our cooking.  Instead of keeping the onion remnants in a ziplock bag, we’re putting it in an old margarine container — thus, we’re re-purposing the container and keeping a plastic bag out of the landfill.

3. Today J. switched his soap from a big plastic pump bottle, to a lavendar bar w/o packaging. Good work, honey!
