Green Online Shopping

Well I have begun scouring the Internet to find some shampoos that won't destroy the earth and I ended up finding a website called Green Feet that has deemed itself "the planet's homestore". They have almost anything you could ever want, including low flow shower heads. That means that I might not have to start taking baths. YAY!

For those of you who want to get your hands on some Earth friendly canvas tote bags, I found a site called EcoBags that sells every kind of tote you could ever desire. I've also been keeping my eye on Craigslist hoping that I might be able to score something in the free section (which is something you might want to check out if you need something. My free section had everything in it - old TVs, tree saplings, and furniture), but so far I've had no luck.

As for the indoor/patio composting, I've discovered that it's quite easy and it doesn't have to smell bad at all! Plus, there are usually worms involved which means that you get a ton of news pets out of the deal. How much fun is that? I read a few articles about it that you can read here, here and here.

I also have signed up for a newsletter that sends me little tips once a day (or maybe once a week, I can't remember at the moment) about simple ways to go green in your daily life. It's called Ideal Bite and are a community of "light greenies" who are working towards being a little more Eco-friendly. If you don't want to deal with another email coming into your inbox, I will be sharing the tips on my posts when they send me some.

So there you go. The first little baby steps towards becoming neon.

So much for me being the overachiever. You are really getting into this green thing aren't you?

I have to say that I'm impressed. I really didn't think that you would stick to this for longer than a week. I'm looking forward to whatever else you report on!

Maybe some garden tips? You know I want to start a little flower garden ...
