This evening my daughter and I decided to make a quick trip to the garden we’re growing in a planting area we adopted in front of her elementary school. We’re growing our own organic veggies and knew that some lettuce was perfect to harvest for the evening’s dinner.
Well, we arrived… and … (*wide-eyed pause*) … it was already harvested! Quite neatly I might add (so we knew that it wasn’t “harvested” by animals… besides, the netting overtop prevents it from BEING harvested by animals!) and the netting was neatly put back in place as well. (Insert my look of *SHOCK* here!)
So, THAT’S how someone is going to be, huh? Who do they think they’re stealing from?… the garden is in front of an elementary school for pete’s sake!!!
What do I have to say about that? Well, THIS is what I have to say about that…
Dear Organic Lettuce Thief,
I love organic lettuce, don’t you? Oh yes. Apparently you do. I also love organic gardening. You should try it sometime. I admire your strength and bravery for being able to steal from children. I also hope you enjoyed your organic lettuce salad this evening, however, my family DID NOT! Oh, and by the way…

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet
"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.
There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.
However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.
Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.
When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.
Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!
