Easy Being Green


Friday, September 11, 2009

Without realizing it, I'm pretty green!
I live in Downtown Detroit, which is notoriously not green...No recycle program, no transit system, etc.
I live, work, and play in my community so I don't keep a car; when I need one, I rent one.
For the most part, I ride my bike, outfitted with saddlebags, I do most of my shopping and various other errands while racking up the cardio points.
I quit eating red meat in the eighties, for no reason other than, I didn't feel good after eating it.
I carry reusable bags when I shop in the neighborhood, for the convenience, and I shop at the local farmers market every weekend.
I don't drink bottled water or soda pop, so I'm not discarding those horrid plastic bottles, and I never used disposable diapers.
All & all, I'm feeling pretty Eco Friendly!

    I love the downtown ambiance of so many cities and have often driven great distances to share in that joy but alas have never lived downtown anywhere other than Palo Alto CA and that doesn't REALLY count imo.

GREAT blog -- you are definitely green and multiple times a day schlepping you and your bike? up 12 flights of stairs is amazing!
