Green Isn't Just a Cool Color

Do you use Google Reader to manage your blogs? I do and I love it! It's such a great way to manage multiple blogs and it's nice because I can go to my reader when I have time (without overwhelming me in my email in-box).

Yesterday, I had the chance to sit down and catch up on the most recent happenings in the blogosphere. It's funny how you start to see patterns with bloggers of all walks of cyberspace.

Lately, I have been seeing quite a trend of information on being "green" or earth-friendly. Being green doesn't have to be just about recycling there also financial benefits to it. I have been trying to make my contribution and work towards keeping my enviorment clean and safe.

The nice thing is that it is really easy. I know that it sometimes can be a lot of work to recycle, but I have to say that even just doing the little things can make a big difference! Here are a few of my favorite (EASY) ways to be green:

  1. Re-usable Grocery Bags. They are so inexpensive now that you can't pass them up. I even use them when I go to a department store or Walgreens.
  2. Recyclable Garbage Can. Establish a second can under the sink just for recylcing. Save you some steps and can make for easy junk mail recylcing.
  3. Use ePaper versus Paper. Email does really have a purpose... if you don't need to print it... don't! There are also things like eBooks (thanks Brandie) to avoid "printing" the document you just save it and read it online. It saves you the cost of buying the real book.
  4. Use Both Sides. Make sure to print on both sides when pringing. Frequently I save used paper to print on the other side for a second round of usage.
Some of my favorite websites to check out are freecycle.org, earth911.org and recycling-revolution.com.
