Eco-tips

Well, I'm kind of settling into life as a new mom. It's super tiring but just a delight to get those sweet coos and silly smiles, especially at 2am.

So, I'm back to trying to conserve energy/water on a conscious level and thought I'd bring in a new eco-tip or two:

1) Buy local - check out the farmer's market if you haven't, find a CSA (community supported agriculture), and look for the most local versions of things you already buy, especially things that have to come from far away.

2) When local is not an option, go fair trade! Look for the fair trade symbol especially on things like chocolate, coffee, vanilla, sugar and rice.

Old eco-tips can be found by typing eco-tip in the search box above or else here.
