I bought several of those hi efficieancy light bulbs but when I got home and started to install them I dropped the box of 4 bulbs and broke them releasing Mercury into the atmosphere of my home. Maybe this is not such a good idea.

We like it! We eat from our organic garden, use energy saving devices throughout the house and yard; we are putting in containers to catch rain for watering, use only commercial laundry and dish liquids, and natural soaps for our persons. My husband is retired now and he find this a conquerable challenge – he can give Ed Bagley a run for his money!

Here are some of the greenies I have incorporated in 2009:

1. Started a vermiculture compost bin (love my worms).
2. Buy organic produce at local farmers market every Sunday.
3. Stopped using sandwich baggies.
4. Bring my coffee to work rather than the daily SBX fix.
5. Use vinegar to clean.
6. Take more walks.
7. Kept Christmas simple (and more meaningful) with fewer gifts.
8. Work for a solar thermal company.
9. Drive a hybrid.
10. Use gift wrap made from recycled paper.
11. Turned down my water heater a notch (energy conservation) and take shorter showers (water conservation).
12. Got a home energy audit.

My top green resolution for 2010 is to actually put the energy audit recommendations to work and make my home more energy efficient.

But it appears no one is willing to think about it, let alone do anything to stop it, because, apparently, the instinct to grow and dominate rules our human behavior.
