Nope, I’m not talking about St Patrick’s Day.
I’m talking about the things we are doing differently than we were a few months or years ago to help the planet.
I will admit I’m not any kind of eco warrior. I eat too many processed foods. I use some paper plates and paper towels. I eat at fast food places more than I should. I see things like reusable feminine hygiene pads or reusable Q tips and my first thought is “gross”! (Yes, those are both real things)
But on the flip side, I drive a fuel efficient car and maintain it. I have switched to silicone drinking straws. I use laundry pods and wash dark color laundry in cold water. I watch full loads instead of half loads. I don’t own a dishwasher. We have used cloth napkins in our home for many years. I’m trying to get better cooking at home thanks to my Instant Pot. I buy larger containers of non-perishable items to cut down on waste.
If we all do a few little things it adds up to a big thing. So, what are the little (or not so little) things you do for the planet? Let’s all share our ideas and all get better together!
