Happy Earth Day today we are recognizing our need to take care of our planet. In reflecting about what to say I have realized that in the last year the Kennedy's have made many changes to help lessen our impact on the Earth. Here are our significant 2010/2011 changes:
*Using canvas bags at the store.
*No longer using chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
*Buying as much local food as possible.
*Supporting and buying from sustainable farmers.
*Using less chemical cleaning products inside and making our own counter cleaner.
We definitely have many more changes to make and aspects in which to improve. In 2011 I would like to transition from many of our plastic food storage containers to more glass containers, reduce our water usage, and RECYCLE. Yes many of you might find it surprising, I do too, but we actually don't have a recycling bin. We never had to set up our trash service since the city works it into our water bill. In order to have recycling service you have to set it up yourself and we just never got around to it. It's a lame excuse but its the unfortunate truth.
I hope all of you are finding ways that fit into your life to help our planet.
