ways to go green

Lately everyone is becoming more and more "green minded". A while back, my friend Trick Falls pointed to some sites that are showing simple ways for us all to take some practical steps in "going green". I am still learning and finding ways, so my steps may be baby steps. Here are a few of my favorite ways to go green:

1. using reusable bags at the store

2. taking my own bags to the library for books

3. reusing plastic bags whenever possible-my favorite, catching the juice pulp!

4. carpooling

5. reusing water bottles

6. composting

7. turning off lights when not in use

8. recycling

9. buying recycled products

10. learning more and more ways to help make this a better world for our kids

5. shorter season

6. if you don't like the coach/team, it will be over soon enough and you can move on to another team

7. friendlier people

8. great place to get a first taste of a sport

9. open to nearly all ages

10. no Sundays
