I don’t consider myself a tree hugger. I am not a ultra hippy vegan. I do remember as a child crushing cans, cutting the plastic soda things, and saving every sheet of paper to recycle.
Today, I am getting back to my roots and slowly trying to be a better citizen of planet Earth. As my disposable income increases, I find it more affordable to shop at the organic grocery stores and purchase more recycled items. In fact, my next goal is to eliminate plastic grocery bags from my daily life (I do save them bags and deposit them in the recycling bin at Safeway). I keep most of the lights off when possible and open the blinds to let in natural light. My electricity bill has also gone down because I reduce the use of the AC and shut things off them they’re not in use.
Additionally, I recycle almost all paper products. I used to recycle only big boxes such as the cereal box or the orange juice carton. Now, I actually collect all cardboard items such as the tiny package my razors came in to my toothpaste container.
I found that tree hugger publishes a number of very interesting and enlightening articles.
