Embracing My Green Monster
Why are all of the FBGs discussing green fitness stuff this week? Because it’s Fit Bottomed Earth Week, silly!
I’m pretty new to the world of green living. I don’t know why it took me so long to get the memo, but I’m grateful I finally joined the cool club. I’ve started doing little things here and there to be kinder to Mama Earth. Here are just a few of those…
Rolling in the Green-ness
Boy-oh-boy do I LUV me the color GREEN! I’ve loved it since I was a wee little one, and now that living green is in, I can expand my love of the hue to the do. I embrace my green by recycling viciously. Ever since I read Think by Lisa Bloom, I’ve been on a mission. We have a two-bin situation going on in my household, and I’ll be damned if I see paper in the normal trash can.
My gal pal Nicole, from Peace Love Nicole, helped my greenness by suggesting what’s now my favorite paper towel alternative. I take my old nasty T-shirts, cut them up and use them as cleaning rags. I get to save at the grocery store and there’s no paper residue…BOOYA!
I love that LA is so down for cutting out the brown…bags. I get points at my grocery store for bringing my own reusable bags instead of using those plastic ones. I’ve never been good at twisting up plastic bags and storing them properly for re-use, so this helps cut down on the clutter and the waste.
I use a Shark Steam Mop, too. (Have you gathered that I love to clean?) I love me some steam mop! No chemicals included. You just pour some good old fashioned water into the mop and let the heat sanitize your floors.
And I’m still open for ideas! I’ve learned that small changes like these are pretty darn easy to implement. I’m proud to be responsible, but am looking to step it up even more. So if you have any eco-friendly ideas, holler at your green girl! —Tish
