Earth day, hanging out in Nova Scotia

Posted Apr 22 2010 9:55am

It is Earth Day..and what a beautiful day to celebrate this gorgeous planet.  This is what I see everyday when I wake up eat breakfast, lunch and dinner to the time I go to bed. I feel very fortunate to get to live in such a beautiful place.

I watched "no impact man" the other week and I thought it was good. It got me thinking about toilet paper, toothpaste, laundry soap, house hold cleaners, etc. All the things that I thought were "essential".
I use cloth diapers for my little one, so why wouldn't I use cloth for toilet paper?  It makes sense, no? My bloggie friend crooked moon mama , uses cloth for toilet paper, check it out, such a cute set up.

I have a couple Earth Day resolutions for myself. I really want to cut down on my families consumption of plastic, everything is either wrapped, stored or sold in it. So its hard to eliminate it, but now that I am more aware of it I try my best. ( for example when you buy mushrooms, there is a choice of buying pre packaged mushrooms, in plastic or you can choose your own and put them in a paper bag:)

My family and I are pretty earth friendly, but there is always room for improvement. Here are a couple little things I would like to change: 1. Stop putting the vegetables that I buy at the grocery store in those produce bags. I want to try and sew some of my own. 2. Start using fabric for toilet paper ( at least for #1's)

What are you earth day resolutions? If you get the chance read " The Lorax" by dr.seuss. Its a good one.

"Catch! calls the Once-ler.
He lets something fall.
It's a Truffula Seed.
It's the last one of all!
You're in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds.
And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs.
Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care.
Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air.
Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack.
Then the Lorax
and all of his friends
may come back."

- Dr. Seuss

A picture of my tomato seedlings, I think they are getting excited to be planted outside!
