Getting Ready

I've been thinking for quite some time about how to make changes that make a difference to the world I live in. As a busy Mom, working full-time, it's not easy to change the way I do things - after all there are only so many hours in the day! But I'm willing to try. I want to be a good example for my son - to do something to build a better future for him.

I want to practice the 3 -R's - reduce, reuse, recycle. I want use what still works and replace things in a more environmentally friendly way. I have lots of ideas and have picked up a few books to help me out.

I guess the big question is Can someone like me change enough to make a difference?


And so the journey begins.

Hi Jackie - yes, you can make a difference! Every little bit counts. I feel good when I see my full recycling bins every week and only a few bags in the regular garbage. I also started using only cloth napkins a few years ago. One thing I need to do is to use only homemade cleaners instead of the toxic ones bought in the store.
