"Earth Muffin"? -I'll take it.

I'll admit: not everything I do is earth-friendly. BUT, we do recycle. 

I bought two nifty blue bins with a recycle symbol on them. One for paper/cardboard, the other for plastics. Yogurt cups/frozen veggie bags/sandwich baggies/shampoo bottles/to envelopes and unnecessary paperwork/receipts, you name it... I'll rinse it out and recycle it!

I make a weekly (sometimes every other week...) trip to Wal-mart, (I know, ironic huh?) and bring the bins in the car. I park the car, grab a cart, load baby and bins, then trundle into the store :)  I add my contributions to the big recycle bins they have near the entries.  Most times, I don't need to shop, so we just turn around and leave. The greeter probably thinks I'm a weirdo, but I don't care. 

I also buy organic produce. And I breeze through the organic foods section to see if any items we'd use are on sale.  

I peruse through blogs like this for inspiration/motivation to live more "green."

It helps. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. I like it :)
