Today I went to the Living Green Expo at the MN State Fairgrounds. Some highlights: I met my CSA farmer (this will be my first year), I got some of my composting questions answered and I bought some reusable lunch bags (sandwich size, snack size and chip size) as well as reusuable mesh produce bags. It was a lot of fun and very informative. Last year was my first year attending and I was able to step up my recycling, started using reusable lunch containers, find a CSA for this year and started thinking about a worm bin. The goal from this year to next is to cut my meat consumption and figure out the best way to compost since I don't have a yard and really don't like the thought of worms indoors.

I'm really compulsive about recycling ANYTHING that's within my grasp so I've done more household today. I go behind my DH turning off lights, fans and unplug or shut off devices that I can reach. Then I always try to use my cloth bags to carry everything everywhere emoticon

Turned off the lights a little earlier than I needed to and turned on the air-conditioning unit only when the heat was too hot to bear.

Hello - I'm new to the team. Can't wait to keep track of my small steps.
- I've consumed no meat today, would've been since Monday, but I had a Lean Cuisine pizza last night with sausage.
- Sorting recycling at work - why don't people understand where to put their waste vs. recyclables when the bins are clearly marked?

I didn't do this today, but since I'm new to the team I'm posting it today. ;) I went to a quilter's retreat a few weeks ago. We had a pile of scraps and leftover fabric that no one wanted, that folks put out to share. I took a nice, heavy piece of floral fabric and sewed it into a shopping bag. Then, when I got home, I pulled out an old shower curtain (the fabric kind that goes outside the tub) and made a bunch of shopping bags out of that. Now I'm all set with pretty, floral bags that are uniquely mine and that cost me nothing but time and a little thread.

I'm moving to NC from NJ. My clothes and electronics are all I'm bringing with so giving away, recycling my whole apartment, 16 years worth of stuff, is staggering work but I've been doing in for the past two weeks and one more to go.

When I get there, my son tells me there's no recycling pick up so he doesn't bother but he will if I help so that's good.

That's good. The other years I cross-stitched designs on canvas totes & gave them out as presents everyone enjoyed them. I hope your bunch will enjoy the reusable bags as well. My mom takes hers everywhere, I think she likes all the compliment she gets on it.

During my Christmas shopping last night, I came across some pretty reusable shopping bags of various sizes in the store and came up with an idea to wrap presents in them instead of paper/plastic bags....helps the environment two fold by not using the cheap bags that get thrown away, and the recipient has a pretty reusable bag herself that might just start a green project for her!

You bring something unique and wonderful into this world every day you're in it.

Despite the cost of living, it's still popular.
