(Don’t) Turn off the Tap!

You always hear people say “Turn off the dang tap! It’s wasting water!”

…well maybe they don’t say it quite like that but you know what I mean. Turning off the tap is great IF you take long showers or stuff like that but, how about drinking? Water I mean.

When I stopped by Lush last week, I picked up this nifty flyer. What I read surprised me. Not that deep down I didn’t already have an inkling but…

So this really kicks in my “take down the man” attitude. I mean really; why do we even need to buy water from the grocery store or vending machines anyway? We can buy a water bottle like this:

We can fill it up with better water than we buy already, we can save alotta moolah and we can help the planet. Why would you not want to do that?

So let’s do it. I dare you.

We live in a finite world, yet our demands on it are infinite. How bout we lighten the load?

Fun and Easy Ways to Be Green!

I don’t know about you, but trying to think of ideas on being green is tough. Of course, there is always the whole “Turn the faucet off when you brush” or “Start a compost pile” thing. But that’s no fun! While I was at the WYSE summer program, I came up with a “game” of sorts and heard about an awesome way to get food!

   Here’s my game: It’s called the Fast and Furious Shower!
   How you play: Go to your phone’s timer and start it right as your hopping in the shower! Cleanse yourself AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!! And see how long you take! Can you get down to five minutes? four? three? I DARE YOU TO TRY IT!
   Ok, now to the other cool way to be green!
   Instead of buying your meats and produce from the grocery store, check out http://www.localharvest.org/csa/. You can use this website to find CSA (community supported agriculture) farms in your area! The cool thing is, for a set fee you get a bundle of goodies each week or month right from that farm! They can also deliver it to your house! Isn’t that awesome! So go and support the people who grow your food!
Got any other cool ideas? Comment and tell me all about them!
