This Sparked Me!

Sweep the patio instead of using the blower, sweep the kitchen instead of using the vacuum, wash dishes by hand instead of using the dishwasher, cook from scratch. All these things will burn more calories and are good for the environment too!

    Most of this I totally agree with you! Rake leaves and shovel snow instead of using a blower too!

However, it is actually better for the environment to use the dishwasher, not wash by hand. A study showed that dishwashers uses less energy, water and even soap than washing by hand. :) http://www.treehugger.com/fi
