In her motivation article It's Easy Being Green! Nicole Nichols - Fitness Instructor & Health Educator at Spark People, features the November 2007 Calendar which is about reducing human impact on the environment.
Thirty daily simple tips to get started with developing more eco-friendly habits; because most green actions will save you money, limit waste, enhance your health and even increase your overall physical activity—all while benefiting the planet.
November 1st was about recycling, recycling, recycling - Done that! Mister T. is very reluctant to "tofu" - even to just the idea of having some in the house makes him nervous. He thinks it could be contaminated or something... - BUT he is a recycling maniac!
November 2nd was about using Cloth Napkins instead of paper ones - I need to work on that...
November 3rd - Bring your own bags to the grocery store instead of getting new ones all the time. Done that too! And guess what? My local grocery store refunds 5 cents for each bag I bring with me. I have 6
big huge totes (I go grocery shopping only once a week) so that is 30 cents right there!
November 4 was about buying local! Done that! I have recently discovered a dairy farm in my area that sells milk from what is called organic cows, in glass bottles that can be returned and reused -- it reminds me of my childhood. Even though I get skim milk, it tastes almost as creamy as whole milk from the store...
November 5th was an invitation to visit the Library, instead of buying books, cds and magazines. Imagine how much is saved when many people share a book or magazine. Done that too! Actually, I got my library card last week.
