Earth Day 2009

Last year, I successfully gave up my Aquafina addiction and Ben used train transportation in Europe. So far this year we have given up plastic bags!

My parents gave us Flip and Tumble bags for Christmas and I love them! They are huge to hold a lot and easily fold down to a small size without a separate case. Plus a lot of our local stores give us a $0.05-0.10 refund for every re-usable bag we use! (Other good brands include Baggu, Envirosax, and RuMe.)I have more plans for 2009 that include: using more cloth napkins/dishtowels/rags to cut back on the paper product usage, continuing to hang laundry to dry (I have always been a huge fan of this), and a little vegetable garden.
