Click below to listen to my Garden Bite radio show: Give me more green
Since we were on a green streak yesterday talking about all the things a coffee bean roaster can do with husks, I thought I give you a few more green opportunities.
Driving less – becoming a Bike Friendly Community
Of course I advocate growing your own vegetables but that’s not feasible all year, so buy local. Many places have co-ops who contract with growers that use greenhouses and high hoops. You get better quality food, put money into your local economy and there’s no trucking it in which is better for the environment. Cooking at home is green too!
Another green goal is to stop buying bottled water. While many folks recycle those bottles, many don’t and they never biodegrade. You’ve seen the stories on animals and marine life that are hurt by discarded bottles. Might I suggest buying a reusable bottle and one of those filters for your faucet? I have one of those Brita water dispensers that go in the fridge.
I love love love my recyclable bags I take to the grocery store. You can put SO much more in them and they don’t rip!
