As far as the tp goes, my daughter took many of my old stained sweatshirts & cut them up into small squares & surged the edges - works perfectly! My husband thinks I am crazy, so I have tp for him & guests. My daughter also made my mama pads. They are AWESOME!

We have very little trash, so I don't need bags. At the end of the week, we only have about a small bag full of trash anyway, so I just don't use one.

I would have to say it was my daughter that got me started - she has cloth diapered my grandson since the day he was born (also makes all his diapers).

Hey there! I too would like to know about the cloth toilet paper, & since you don't use trash bags, what do you use? :) -T

Hello there and welcome to the team!

I`m impressed by your greening! Please share with us how you become more concerned about the environment and what have you used as a "teacher" for becoming better informed.

:D

If you *think* you can do something, or that you cannot, either way, *you are right*

Good morning! I am new to this team but definitely not new to going green (or to SP). You can read my life as a fat person on my SparkPage if you want.

I use a Sigg water bottle.
I recycle EVERYTHING.
I've changed all our light bulbs.
I use cloth bags.
I use natural soaps, shampoos, deodorant & toothpaste.
I always wash on cold.
I hang all clothes to dry (all year).
I use mama pads.
I use cloth toilet paper.
I buy organic & local when available.
I avoid aerosols.
I use cloth napkins instead of paper towels.
I re-use bath towels - hang them to dry.
I don't use trash bags.

I can't think of anything else right now, but I'm sure I will. I look forward to becoming a part of this team & getting to know all of you!
