Happy Earth Day! I must admit, I am not great at "being green!" In the words of Kermit the Frog, "It's not easy being green." Of course, we junkers do our part be recycling others' cast-offs. For example, I , along with my hubby's help, picked up a perfectly good dresser from the side of the road the other day. Now, by perfectly good, I mean in pieces because it probably fell off someone else's truck. But there are 2 solid drawers and the sides and top pieces that I will use for wood. Had I not picked it up, I am sure it would have sat for quite awhile cluttering up the roadside.
There are some little things I do around the house to help our earth. I buy Bounty select a size paper towels. I usually only use a half sheet which saves paper towels. We recycle, which may sound like nothing special, but here in Montana, there is no curbside recycling. I use all of my plastic food tubs (sour cream, yogurt, etc.), mostly for painting. The lids make great little pallets. I don't dry my clothes all the way, but hang them up when damp to finish drying. I keep the thermostat down and just put on an extra sweater. I use both sides of the paper when printing when I can. I use florescent light bulbs where I can stand it (I don't care what they say--the light is not the same!). I guess I am trying to say that we all can do something to help our planet and I believe every little bit helps.
Sorry, I can't seem to post any pictures tonight. I am not sure why,but I don't have the patience to figure it out. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to show you pictures of a project I am making with one of the roadside drawers. Happy day and do something green!
