Ok, so you have the fabric bag thing down. You use them all the time. You feel good about it. Now what? What else can you do to be green? Here are some suggestions:
•Be aware of your energy usage. The documentary film, "Kilowatt Ours" (made right here in Tennessee!) is WELL worth buying or viewing if there is an event near you. It has great tips for saving energy and some very scary facts about why you should do so. Saving Energy=Saving Money! www.kilowattours.org
•I know many of you do a great job recycling, right? I'm going to assume you are all nodding your heads. Do you feel bad about throwing away those plastic caps/lids when you recycle a bottle? No more, you can save them and bring them to an Aveda store for recycling. This is true, I asked at the store. Click here for a store near you! I have an oatmeal container on my kitchen counter just for collecting caps/lids.
•STOP buying bottled water. Please, stop. Read this and you will understand why. Get a good refillable bottle. Please.
•Try to buy as many things at the store as you can in glass and metal. These are both infinitely recyclable. Also, you reduce how much plastic you use. Please read "Plastic Ocean" to see why we all need to reduce our dependence on plastic.
That is all I will bombard you with right now. Get greener and do it today! It will make you happy. :) Teresa
