Summer has hit Winnipeg! After the longest winter I have ever known, I can’t wait to soak up every last second of it. It took me a little while to come up with what project I wanted to do for June. After all I wanted to take advantage of the warming weather, the fact I will actually be at home for an entire month, plus it’s my birthday month so I want it to be fun!
After going through a million different ideas I finally settled on one… this month I am
Now to say I’m going green is an incredibly vague topic and project. But I have learned from my past failures and so I am getting specific for this one. I spent a bunch of time going through internet sources and through my own mind to come up with what eco-friendly changes would have the most impact in my life and some that I am just curious about. So here’s what I came up with:
Green cleaning, what’s it all about? – switch to homemade or eco-friendly cleaners and test them out
Compare the cost, selection and tastes of buying groceries from three different sources: regular grocery store, organic foods, and farmer’s market/ local foods
Make composting a habit
Use less paper towels
Hand dry the laundry?
Repair instead of replace
plant a garden?
What’s in my body products… what are similar eco-friendly options?
Spend more time outdoors
I want to explore all of these topics this month and hopefully make my daily life a little greener. First up on the docket: Green Cleaning 🙂
