Green Goals

Jan 6th

Please don’t roll your eyes.  I’m writing yet ANOTHER post about my goals for 2009.  This time, though, THIS time I’m writing about how I plan to improve my green living.  Here are things we have already done over the past couple years:

  • Eliminated the use of paper towels and napkins
  • Use cloth diapers
  • Employed the use of a clothesline (though it had to be taken down for the garden last summer)
  • Switched to an eco-friendly dish soap and other household cleaning supplies
  • Started wearing burlap sacks and cardboard shoes…HAHA.  Just kidding.
  • Use canvas shopping bags

And here are things we’d like to do in 2009:

  • Have a homebirth! (does that count?)
  • Put the clothesline back up
  • Plant, harvest, and can some vegetables
  • Jamie wants to get chickens and goats.  We’ll see how that goes.
  • Continue to use more eco-friendly cleaning products
  • Find a reasonably priced potted Christmas tree

I may add more to this list as I think of things, but for now I don’t want to put any more pressure on myself than I already have with all these goals and challenges.  See?  Told you I need an intervention.
