"Tell me in the comments section one thing you do for the environment, do you recycle every week? Do you ride a bike? Commute with a group? Drive a hybrid? Use cloth diapers? Tell me, because it's my hope that by you leaving your comment that readers will learn to live greener just from your comments."
Here was my comment:
We also reuse our water bottles, separate our recyclables from the trash and use reusable grocery bags. In addition we have like a million dish towels that we try to use for cleaning and spills to reduce the number of paper towels we use. And in order to save energy this past winter, since I'm the only one home most of the day I kept the heat as low as I could tolerate and wore a coat in my own house all winter long until everyone else came home! It did save a lot on heat! :-) 'Course now that summer's here, we're trying to find energy-saving ways to stay cool (which means try not to use the A/C) so a free case of water sure would be an energy-saving way to keep cool! ;-)
I don't know if maybe she felt sorry for me about wearing my coat in my own house all winter and thought maybe conversely in the summer I'd have to go around naked unless I got some water to cool me off or what, but hey, I won!
If you want to read that entry and everyone's good ideas on how to be "greener" it's here.
And here's why Primo water is better for the environment - get this:
Primo is the first nationally available bottled water whose bottle is made from plants, not crude oil! Primo offers you the convenience and great taste you're looking for – in a bottle that's friendly to the environment.
How? It's all about the plastic we use. It's called Ingeotm, the world's first and only performance plastic made from 100% annually renewable plants. Nearly all other plastic bottles made in the United States are manufactured from petroleum, a non-renewable and diminishing resource.Wow, pretty interesting!
And a big thank you to Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry for this cool prize!
