I've always been a little bit of a flower child, if that makes any sense. Nature appeals to me, and I like natural things. I think there is a great deal to be said for herbal treatments for health issues in conjunction with modern medicine.
Another line I'm not sure I can cross. Reusable feminine products. The Diva Cup, hemp pads, etc. Do any of you have any experience with any of these products? Care to share what you have found? I am curious!
What about reusable tissues? Simply wash and refold. This one I could probably handle, as long a no one else is using MY TISSUE. Sort of like a handkerchief. Call me selfish but I just don't want to share my snot-rag you know?
Compost? Do you compost? If I didn't live in an apartment I would try this..but right now this is just not possible. I doubt my neighbors would appreciate my banana peels in a bucket on the porch.
I saw this recently. The Fab Tree Hab. I have always wanted to live in a tree house, but I'm not completely convinced that this is a realistic option to any normal person. Point in fact, the creator of the Fab Tree Hab lives in New York City. Not in a tree. Would we call that green?
On the topic of houses though, I LOVE that people are beginning to see the light that is bamboo. I heart bamboo big time. It's sustainable AND it. is. gorgeous. I first fell in love with bamboo when I spent some time in Thailand. The village homes were roughly made from bamboo. Just the bamboo stalks laid side by side about 10 feet up in the air. I was sure that there was no way in H-E-double hockey sticks that it would hold the weight of a cat, much less a human. Boy-oh-boy was I ever mistaken. We had around 15 people in there and it was just fine. This stuff it strong folks. Like a good man. Strong, durable, but he can be soft when you need him to be.Seriously? You can't tell me that is not beautiful. You can also choose bamboo counter tops, butcher block, furniture, the options are endless. Come over to the bamboo side my friends.
How do you feel about the trend that is "going green"? How far are you willing to go? Have you seen anything else that is "out there" in the environmentally friendly realm?
I have a pretty crazy weekend, so I'm most likely not going to post again 'til Monday. I'll keep this up until then so tell me how you are going green, how you feel about going green, if you hate green, what's the craziest eco-friendly idea you have come across?
