Going Green

Okay, so I keep reading so much stuff about “going green” apparently it is the thing to do now days, and I have to say, it isn’t all that bad of an idea. So, I have decided I would like to see my family get a little more green. I don’t want this to cost an arm and a leg, and I don’t want it to consume my life, but I do want to try to do something for the environment. So, I guess I am saying I would like to make a major life change without it actually making any changes in my life. heh.

Okay, the first plan is simple. I am going to start by researching just what it means to take my family green, and I plan to have an action plan by the end of the week. Today is Monday, so that shouldn’t be too hard to do, right? By Friday I will have an overall scope of how I am going to take my family green. Yeah, I can do that. :)

Now, a little about me. I am a stay at home mom to the most wonderful two year old I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is totally awesome, and I want to do this for her. I want to see her eating healthier, spending more time outside, and just generally living a more peaceful life. I know that it will be difficult to change so many of my habits, but if I start her now, then these habits will just be a part of her every day living. And, to me that is totally worth it.

A few ideas I am throwing around to add to my action plan are.

Eating Locally
Changing out the Light Bulbs
Getting Involved in City Wide Recycling
Eating Organically (This goes with eating locally, but I feel like this just might be a very daunting project.)
Using Less Electricity
Doing something good for the Earth

I will have it all worked out by Friday though! Thanks for reading with me on this exciting adventure to make my family just a little bit greener!
