Lots of Changes

 Our family has been making quite a few changes here.  We started recycling some years back, but we've been taking more steps since purchasing our own house.


changed the light bulbs we use

put several rain barrels in the back yard

purchased a hybrid car (giving up our second car.  There are times when it's less convenient just having the one car, but we know it's the right thing to do.)

bought a motorized (electric) bike for dh, which he rides to work more times than not

began a compost pile in the back yard

have begun growing much of our own produce and herbs

use our own bags at the grocery store

put a laundry line up, which we've begun using more times than not


We're not perfect by any means of the word, but we're trying...  Some day we hope to build our own Earth Ship.

Great effort and how inspiring. I can't wait to have my own vege patch!
