Salvaged: A follow-up

So, last week I was whining because our daughter’s school was holding an event for students that focused on proper nutrition and making healthy food choices. I was all for the project but miffed that they were serving bottled water.

Well, I’m happy to say that I spoke up and this is the result of my whining!

Behold, my beautiful recycling can filled with plastic bottles to be recycled!

The principal agreed with my concern and the event organizer welcomed my help.  Our custodian helped me put together a receptacle just for the bottles, I made signs and everyone cooperated!  Yippee!

After school I not only brought home my most precious cargo (our daughter, of course) but also an enormous bag of plastic bottles to be recycled.

I’m slowly learning that when given options, and someone who will take the bull by the horns (or even the other end of the bull!), people will often agree to make the right choices.

Now, if I could just get the BPA issues out of my head and the recent study about bottled water, I would be happier, but this was the best outcome I could manage, under the circumstances.

See, sometimes being a cry-baby does pay off!

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"!
