Okay, so today I’d like to reach through the computer screen and suggest some green words.
Like Baggu. These suckers are AWESOME! I wouldn’t say you can get 3 bags of groceries in one (more like 2) but MAN they are convenient and "good for the environment" because, y’all know we’re all about the environment here at Spacemom. Actually, they are easy to fin in a jacket pocket or a purse. And they are pretty cheap ($8 for 1 bag, $22 for 3). You can also find these at Amazon.
I’m still looking into the GreenSwitch. This idea is simple. Install a few of their outlets plus a master switch. The master switch sends an RF signal to the outlets to turn on and off. You’re leaving for the work day? Flip the switch and your computer, router, wifi, printer all turn off. Come home? Flip the switch and they all come back on. However, $58 an outlet & switch is a bit pricey…but I am thinking about it for everything in the computer cabinet and the entertainment center except the DVR.
And how about an in kitchen composter? Pricey, but with a carbon filter to remove odors and a low energy cost, this is a great way to deal with food scraps, if you are like me and just can’t get into composting outside. We are SO getting one of these when we redo the kitchen in two years. It kills me how much food gets tossed away with little thought. At least we can put it back to our garden, right?
What cool and exciting new things have you seen for the environment>
