Going Green

In the last 5 months our family has been going green. It started when we got a recycling bin. I thought okay, it's there why not? So I started putting things in there from time to time, not really going the extra mile. Then I had to get organic face cream, because everything else kept breaking me out. It's the only thing that would work, and my skin is super dry so it's a must. Then I started paying attention to what I was recycling and putting more stuff in the bin. Now I have to crush most everything down so it will all fit in the bin lol. Recently I've got natural laundry detergent, bathroom cleaner, all purpose cleaner, hand soap, and kitchen sponges. My husband doesn't know that I'm going to use the detergent on his work clothes, haha! I told him I would use the Tide, but I think I'll use it and see if he notices. We turn off lights and things we aren't using and have always used cold water for washing clothes. Next on my list is dryer balls and fabric softener. How have you been getting your family to be more green? Have you tried yet or are you on the fence? I say give it a try if you're unsure. I want this planet to be around and beautiful when my grandkids are here, don't you?

  1. Good for you. I go green for awhile, then slip back into old ways, then start up again. Just have to be more consistent.

  4. We've been trying to go green too. Trying to recycle more (which I often just let slip... but planning to try harder), we use cold water to wash clothes, hang our clothes outside, stopped buying bottled water (we use a brita thing now). We're trying, haha.
