Tiny little habits? I'm with you. Big changes are hard to make, but little ones are accessible. Think globally; act locally. I'll be back!


Excellent idea. We all need baby steps, otherwise, we'll throw our hands up in the air in hopelessness.

My suggested first step: If you haven't yet done so, go see "An Inconvenient Truth." It's enteraining, sobering, and inspiring all at once. IMHO, it's the most important movie of the decade. Better yet, it *will* inspire you. And it even suggests some steps you can take to help. (Some small, some not so small.) Go see it -- for yourself, and for your family.

I think you'll find that blogging about your changes, like blogging about products, will help to motivate you. I know my blog does, it helps keep me accountable. I've been blogging about my baby steps for probably a month now (I just did a "state of the you address" cataloging the changes I've made)

The easiest change for me was to switch all my household cleaners to biodegradable ones, and I pay more attention to recycling everything I can now too.

good luck to you in your journey towards a more green lifestyle!
