Blog Action Day

It's Blog Action Day, and the theme this year is 'The Environment'. I've got a recap of the things we've done in the last year that make a difference - none of them are hard!

1. Eat seasonally and eat less meat.
Yeah, I know - I'm always on about cooking. We're getting much better at buying things in season - they're cheaper, tastier, and generally better. Can't lose, really.

2. Be a Nalgenie
I'm a little bit mad about my Nalgene bottles - I have my big 'I'm a college student' one and a dinky little one that's much more...er...acceptable to carry around. They go in the dishwasher once a week or so and make me v. happy.

3. Hang out the laundry
Ok, this one is mostly because we don't have a dryer. But I haven't had a dryer in 2 years and I don't really miss it. We use eco washing liquid, too - it gets most things clean, although if we're doing a particularly grubby load, I cave and use the Fairy tablets.

4. Get a Mooncup (or a DivaCup).
I've been through this one...check it out!

5. Compost and recycle
We've been doing these for a while - I'm psyched for our happy compost to dig the plants into in the spring.

so this cup thing... don't mean to be gross but do you know anyone who uses it who's small in that department?

It comes in sizes - check the websites!

gosh, what a silly question by 'anonymous' person about sizing for moon cups. everyone knows one can't be too small, that area is stretchy and can accomodate a baby during birth for goodness sakes. okay my rant over.
