Our son is very diligent. For the last two years he has talked about recycling. It started with statements about how they recycle at school. Then it turned into direct questions.
"Mom, why don't we recycle?"
"Mom, if we don't recycle, who will?"
Now it is orders.
"Mom, we need to recycle"
Mom, we should recycle"
I told you, diligent.
My excuses aren't cutting it anymore. My ignorance is no longer acceptable.
So... we have planned to sit down next Monday and make a "Green Plan."
Our son is ecstatic.
I am nervous and worried. I am a very busy mother of three young children. Like most people who don't know a lot about going green, it seems to be expensive and time consuming. Two things I don't have. Extra money and extra time.
I am ready to support the green movement but don't know where to start, besides recycling. I want to do a better job of working it into my everyday.
My first step...call in the morning and find out how we start recycling. I just hope is doesn't cost money.
My second step.... no more plastic water bottles.
My third step....I don't have one.
Have you gone green?
What have you done?
