Check out my latest site that I've added to the right, EcoSalon.
I've recently discovered it, via one of my fave catalogs, Viva Terra, and it's not too heavy-handed about the whole green thing, which I like.
I can't be guilted into motivation. That is an enormous truth with me. But if it's cool stuff anyhow, given the option, I'll go green.
When "they" say that "if we only got every person to change one light bulb, we're saving an iceberg from melting (or whatever the reasoning)"...I figure lots of little different efforts add up over a lifetime. So that's my goal. And the strategy I try to impart to my family, too.
Have I mentioned that both C and I drive a Prius? It was a recent decision when we realized how pricey the Hybrid Highlander was going to be. So we flipped my 2004 Highlander and his 2003 Corolla and got two 2008 Priuses. (Is Priuses the proper plural? Is it Pria?)
Anyhow, we own them...we always own our cars, we're the sort that doesn't understand the concept of leasing...and we have the exact same car payments we used to, two brand-new cars, and we're totally saving on gas. C gets 48 miles to the gallon and I get around 39-40 (Freshchester has a lot of hills, and I take lots of short trips during the week).
And simply buying that car made me feel really good. I know it's not perfect, but it's better than what I was driving. Having it has actually motivated me to do more that's green, make more of an effort every day. Funny, eh?
