Lately there has been alot of talk about "going green" or being more energy effecient. I think that going green is a faboulus idea, In my household we have already started to do this, by getting those curly lightbulbs, ( lol im sorry i cant remember what they are called) All my appliances are within three years old, I got rid of my old washer and dryer, and bought a high effeciency Whirlpool duo sport. We dont have recycling, but we take these things i cant reuses for something else, to friends/family who have recycling. We are going to start building our new home this summer, that is all natural metrial even the roof. (well minus the rubber that needs to be under the dirt and grass seed) using wood, and cemement to build. The house is called a 'cord wood" or a "wood stack" home. When we build this we are planning on having solar panels, and wood heat. We will plant a huge garden and can or freeze what we can for the winter. I am super excited about being able to live off the earth, and be so close to nature. Im wondering how many people are wanting to go green, or who have started to already?

I think that bulb is from GE, Energy Smart bulbs, if I remember it correctly. Some of the things we do is use Smart Strips (power outlets); organic cleansers; use shopping bags that are cloth, so it's reusable. There are a lot of ideas that all of us can do to help the environment. If all of us do our share, I'm pretty sure we can combat losing mother earth.

To really go green, the best is to go among the green and best if we can live there. In the provinces here in the Philippines, nature is so beautiful but surprisingly, people in the provinces dream to go to the cities where pollution is so much and so we are overcrowded here in Metro Manila. And then we like to return but it's no longer easy. Life is so hard and we can not just do whatever we want. So pictures of nature give me some sort of joy and I've got to be satisfied with them.
