- We switched to green power last year (all wind generated).
- we recycle everything - paper, plastics, metal, glass
- we compost all food waste (
- we have energy efficient appliances, and I only run the washing machine and dishwasher with full loads
- we offset our carbon emissions
- we car pool to work

It's really not hard once you start. The changes are small but I believe that they will ultimately make a big difference.[/b]

How does that work?? I've heard about it and dont know anyone thats actually done it. I've heard its super expensive to get started.

I also do full loads of laundry with cold water, and I dont have a dishwaser, so no need for full loads for that
It's easy to use green power. Your local electricity provider may have a "green" option. If not, go to They will calculate your monthly usage then you pay a fee, and they will put the same amount of kW of wind energy back on the grid. Our monthly fee is about $12.
