I receive email updates from Care2. The newsletter usually has some great ideas or tips or current events that are going on in the world around us. I am not a "tree hugger" type, but I do think if we all do a little something it will be better for us down the line. This morning I was reading tips from Crissy Trask who writes GreenMatters.com and has a book It's Easy Being Green: A Handbook for Earth-Friendly Living and her article today was how to make things around the house. One of the things was to use baking soda, vinegar (she uses white and I prefer apple cider) and boiling water to clean your drains. I have done this for years. Some of her other tips were not only GREEN, but would also save a lot of money! She is giving away a copy of her book, so sign up for the Care2 newsletter, and leave a comment at: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/20-tips-for-being-green-book-giveaway.html
Another article was about bags...paper or plastic? It was interesting too. We try as much as possible to use our fabric bags. We purchased 12 bags when they were on sale 3 for $1, if we ever used all 12 at once we would be over our budget! They are much easier to carry in the house than paper or plastic. Our local grocery store gives 3 cent credit per bag for each one we use! So why not?
The Care2 website also has free e-cards to send that are funny and cute. So I recommend the http://www.care2.com/ site for a regular read.
PAPER, PLASTIC OR RESUABLE FABRIC?
