I was thinking before I read this, i am not very 'green' at all. Then I discovered, things I have done for personal preference and ease are Green.
3 Yrs ago, Santa brought me 2 Nalgene 32ox water bottles - use religiously
5 Yrs ago, I discoved SmartWool stocks - aside from the cost, LOVE 'EM
2 Yrs ago, Yoga mat: I bought a rubber one - again for comfort and ease for no green thoughts involved.
4yeas ago - bought a Eureka tent - for car camping. We are thinking of getting a new one, but naturally thought of givings/selling ours to Wilderness Exchange not throwing it out.
2.5 years ago - discovered Wilderness Exchange - where new and used equipment go to live a new life. My husband got some great 'GoLite' clothing for almost nothing. Saved us tons of money, more items not in a landfill, and they looked like they had never been worn.
Utensils for camping: Lexan or Titanium - no disposable plastics.
It was a revelation to both of us that we were actually being pretty green about things. Now that we are more aware - we will do even better.
