Let's take a trip down memory lane. You may remember learning about the three R's in elementary school and if you have forgotten them, you have come to the right place. REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE! For example: Try fixing an old chair, instead of buying a new one to help REDUCE waste. When you go grocery shopping, REUSE paper or plastic bags you already have. Last, but not least RECYLCE! You can recylce paper bags, plastic, aluminum, card board boxes, etc.
I'm also convinced you can apply the three R's to your love life. If your love life is getting to complicated you can REDUCE the amount of men/women you have in it. If you dated someone who just isn't a fit for you, don't have a problem with RECYCLING him/her. They just might be a fit for a freind. And sometimes you just need to REUSE an oldie but goodie. You never know, it might work out the second time around;)
Thanks to Amber, my roommate, who brought this home for me I no longer use plastic bottles. I have stopped contributing to the masses of plastic pollution and it's a lot easier than it looks. I carry my SIGG bottle with me everywhere I go. Pick one up at Whole Foods or find them online. Trust me, you will never go back to plastic.

I took a course through Sustainable Works back in Jan'09 and it was to say the least life changing. During the course I learned so much in the areas of water, energy, waste, chemicals, buying & purchasing and travel. I have a new passion for anything related to the Green Movement because I'm a tish clueless about it. I'm learning as I go and can't wait to share with you my new discoveries.
