7 You take the Good and you take the Bad....

I'm in now way perfect when it comes to being environmentally friendly. I mean who is really?  I was thinking today about the little things that I do that are good for the environment and the things that I do are bad. Things that I just do and have never really questioned until I started to think about it today.

The Good

I have never used any kind of chemical on our lawn. This is probably why it is not grass but rather weeds...weeds that I am pretty sure are plotting to kill me.

I don't wear or buy makeup.

I don't buy a lot of 'stuff'. No consumerism for me.

The Bad

I double bag it. I put our kitchen waste into a kitchen garbage bag. When it is full I put it into a big garbage bag in the garbage can in the garage.
When I am cleaning out the fridge if something is vomitus I throw it out instead of having to handle it any way to compost it or scrape it out and recycle it. Gagging on the smell is the last thing I want.
I shave in the shower with the water running.

The Chin Scratchers

What does everyone do with their water? Like water from boiling veggies and pasta? Water that was in a glass that they were drinking and they don't want it anymore?

Do you bring your compostable materials home from work?

  1. yeah, no one is! I don't even have a compost right now, but I try my hardest in other areas. I'm in a unit now, but when I was in my house I used to do everything possible to save water.

    Bath water got used to soak clothes, then mop the floor, then put int eh toilet cistern.

    Cooking/drinking water went on the garden. I'd collect the water in the shower to use on the garden/toilet cistern/in the washing machine/on the garden.

    It probably helps that I live in drought stricken Aus.
