Found this post by Tea, a foodblogger from San Francisco, outlining the simple ways she tries to make her home and her life greener.
I like the post because it's not by a green blogger, so it's by someone who isn't, ostensibly, thinking about this all the time, and because these really are very simple ideas.
I'll confess it also caught my eye because she features the Pyrex bowls with lids picture here, and I registered for and received these same bowls for my wedding, and do indeed find them to be really useful and a pleasure to use. When I wash them I never feel, as I tend to do with more typical plastic Tupperware-style containers, that I haven't really gotten them quite clean enough.
Tea reminds me of something I've been meaning to do that I just need to do: Take my own insulated mug along when I treat myself to a soy latte at Starbucks. I only have about a million of them, since they are a very popular schwag item at conferences and such.
There are some things that Tea mentions that I've got going on: reusable shopping bags, reusable coffee filter and so on.
And one thing that I have trouble imagining myself ever doing: composting. I'm squeamish, I admit it. What about you? Any composters out there? Am I being a whiny baby?
Anyway: Nice, clear, simple tips. For regular people who care abut the environment. And unless I'm mistaken, shouldn't that be everyone?
