Green Thanksgiving

Just stumbled across this post today at Nature Moms and I thought it was such a coincidence and wanted to share.

So how am I being green this Thanksgiving?

Well for starters, we put in new energy saving bulbs in the entry way today while waiting on lunch to heat up. This was a big deal b/c our ceilings are 18ft high and you can imagine the climbing, dangling, twisting and turning to get those bulbs in the light fixture. But it's done. I'm not thrilled with the look of the bulbs or the amount of light, but they should last forever (b/c the light is hardly ever on) and when they are on, it should save us $$.

According to the list in the post above... we are:

* using our fine china, not paper products
* using cloth napkins
* moved the compost can closer to the deck

And we made all those decisions without considering them to be "green." Not a bad step toward progress. IIMSS
