And since Lexie is a rescue dog with not specific age (guestimate = 2 yrs) I shall name it her birthday as well! Just kidding, we gave named Thanksgiving as her b-day last year. She was stoked.
I'm not the best role model for being a good recycler. Gus is constantly grabbing bottles I throw into the trash and moving them into the recycling bin. that sounds like its whiskey bottles or something! its really water bottles and diet coke cans... and Trader Joe bottles of Sauvignon blanc.
Matt Lauer called me at 7am this morning (as he does every day) to tell me some easy Green Tips that even I could manage. And by that I mean I watched the Today Show.
Saw a few tips that seems pretty managable and wanted to share.
Read your magazines online. I should totally do this. I'm a loser when it comes to magazine subscriptions, and I even started a 'trashy tabloid magazine club' at work where we can swap Stars and Us Weeklys and OK! Magazines (book clubbin' like whattttt) Its hard to pay for magazines online though- because usually I'd just go to the mag's home page and read a few articles for free. But still- I think Zinio Digital is a neat idea and hopefully it will save some paper.
Shave with just 7 drops. Does your significant other waste a lot of water while shaving?? I get so annoyed when I hear the water pouring down in the sink for up to 10 minutes!! I've even said- can you turn the water off? But it comes across too whiny so that never actually works. Apparently you can buy this Pacific Shaving Oil for $6.99
fierce organic clothing? eh. not so much.. this is still a work in progress
Eco Friendly Fashion. Target is coming out with an eco friendly line called Loom-state. Banana and J.Crew need to jump on that- because while all the super fashion lines featured these days as green and great- its not really my style, and in order to kick global warming's arse- you gotta love your getup. Why do I have a hunch that organic clothing means more expensive- when it should mean the opposite in theory!
Green tip for Matt? Wear less clothes so you don't waste water washing them! duh.
