Green with Envy
Last winter we had the water advisory. This summer it will be the garbage strike. If I really love my children here's another wake up call to big picture junk I can't ignore.
I surely would have voted for the environment as the BlogHers Act Canada issue. If those damn centralists hadn't shut down the polls at 9:00PM on Sunday. 13 minutes before I booked on to vote. NB: I'll save the 'don't oppress me' for another post.
Dear mother earth. I have already confessed that since mothering up myself I have sadly "started living pretty fast and loose with the environment". But I am about to turn the corner, back home.
There are folks out there setting such a good example. I can't avoid thinking about all our crap. Now that I have no one to actually collect our crap and make it disappeared I am bent on change, foul weather friend that I am. We'll try to reduce our disposable diaper use by half with cloth. We hope to burn through our kitchen waste with a composter working overtime. We promise to recycle every bit of paper and all those take out tins I didn't used to wash.
How 'bout you, got some keen green tips? We could use all the help we can get. Because, hey this planet can use all the help we can give, n'est ce pas? Perhaps this would make for a good BC Issue.
ps... I am especially interested in any raves or warnings about certain cloth diaper brands. I have only used homemades to now and the HappyHeineys, FuzziBuns and many and varied Velour Ass-sacks all seem so dizzying and expensive... I am sort of afraid of them.
