|what? give up my granite counter-tops for that?|
So far we are finding out, that most of the ECO-living requirements, we have already been doing for years! Don't you feel better now, knowing that your carbon-footprint might be smaller than you think?
- Sort your trash according to local recycling laws; try to compost organic matter and yard waste, and purchase recycled products to support the industry.
- If curbside recycling hasn’t reached your area yet, call your municipality to find the nearest location of your nearest receptacles.
- Recycle old clothing and other unwanted items through yard sales. What does not sell, donate to a local charity.
- Recycle old motor oil and antifreeze at gas stations that have the facilities.
Don't let those mommies at the park talk down to you and make you feel like you are a no-body because they assume, you are not living quite up to their standards. In all actuality, you could probably show them a thing or two about how to live "sustainably" without really trying. Us frugal and cheap folk, have been doing many of these things for years - probably before any of them, were even born!
