  1. Why We Live Like This

    Our nation as a whole are non-thinkers. They do what they are told (mainly by the media) how to act, how to think, how to eat, what is "good" etc. We are also a me society. If Green is not going to personally make their lives easier or better why bother? We are also a bunch of complainers. Ever stand about 10 feet away from a group of co-workers and listen to them talk? They are not talking about how great their lives are, they are talking about their problems. That's on them, they will always stay right where they are. With a small awareness of what is really important. I on the other hand I choose awareness, not only for the environment, but for myself. I live by the words Ghandi said,"You must be the change you wish to see" It's so true. B)
  2. Tips for Easier Recycling at Home

    You are more organized than I am. And I dont have that much room under my sink. I use a plastic container for food scraps, that goes to the compost daily. We stack the cans and bottles on the counter and take to the garage (where the recycling buckets are) daily. All our paper, mail, cardboard, etc is kept in the garage. Is burning plastic really safe? Seems to me it would be easier to use Reusable grocery bags, or take the plastic ones back to the store for recycling. Wouldn't burning them release toxins into the air? Burning anything but wood around here is illegal anyway. We can't even burn our leaves.

    About that printing greener, when I started our business I was very much concerned about using too much paper and ink. Now I am in need of much documented transactions. I will use the the clip and print add in to reap the benefits of both worlds.
