Comment Friday for April 25th

What a long week! We are getting ready to go to Las Vegas and hopefully do a contest here at BAYB. May is a huge month for me so I hope we can keep the flow going.

If this is your first Comment Friday we give one lucky person a free weekly blogroll spot as our “blog of the week“. Along with that we are also giving that winner 200 entrecard credits.

This past week was earth day and I was really into it. I’ve been even more into recycling as well as more aware of the harm plastic does to the environment. I’ve really tried to “go green”. Have you made any effort? Have you blogged about anything in particular about being green?

Economtricks is about bettering yourself and a variety of topics. Improve your decision making and go green!

    My wife & I have been recycling as much of our consumable plastics as possible for the past year or so. We also tote around our own reusable shopping bags whenever possible. We’ve made a real effort to use fewer disposable items in the kitchen, like paper plates, plastic cups, etc.

    Admittedly, my efforts have been pretty incremental, but every little bit helps and we’re always on the lookout for additional ways we can live a little greener.

    First, I now work from home and that saves a lot of gas! I was commuting 60 miles round trip.
    I also make my own breakfast cereal (granola), bread and yogurt. Not only is it healthier,but I don’t use any cardboard boxes, bread bags, and little plastic yogurt cups.
    I try to buy most of my groceries in bulk from the co-op, and I buy local whenever possible.

    Our city has yard waste recycling and so I bought “Green Bags” that I use for kitchen scraps and they can go right in the bin. They are made of corn and decompose along with the leaves, grass and veggies. We always keep reusable cloth shopping bags in the car and it is getting more and more common to see everyone bringing their own bags too. Yay! We don’t travel all that much, and I don’t drive, so we save a lot of money on gas and that helps the planet too. I am thinking of trying to wash clothes in cold water for a month just to see if it makes a difference in the gas bill. We used to do it all the time in the 70’s. Yes, I AM that old. No, not the 1870’s. ;) Happy Friday!

    I have not done much to go green. I am walking a bit more and hitting the gym on the way home from work, instead of making an extra trip out there, so hopefully that helps out a little.

    Hmm, I haven’t blogged about Earth day, but I did publish a post about making your own cloth diaper wipes that are re-usable, I just didn’t tie it in with Earth day. In our day to day lives we actually live off-grid in a naturally constructed home, and compost all of our own wastes, so we are pretty green here :) .
