Carbon Neutral

Someone is always talking about how to lower our carbon footprint, how to live greener and how to change how we live for the better. Some changes are easier to make than others; the Husband's habit of holding the refrigerator door open while he pours himself a drink or when I forget to unplug the coffee machine in the morning for instance. We are still working on those.

I'm a firm believer in making small changes all the time. In the last year we've reduced how often we use the dryer; hanging our laundry out on clear days instead, we've reduced the amount of waste we send to the landfill by composting our food scraps and we've eliminated the cost of having a car; opting for the car co-op, our own feet and the local transit system to fill our vehicular needs. We turn off the lights whenever we don't need the extra illumination and we've started cutting back on how much water we use by turning the water off while we brush our teeth, and wash our hands. little steps that are adding up.

We still have more to do and I'm always thinking about what else we can start to do as well. So, today when I came across this initiative that will plant a tree for your blog or website
from German based kaufDA I jumped on board right away. The program has been set up to neutralize your online carbon footprint for the next 50 years and it's as easy as writing a post to participate. All you have to do is add a badge to your site, blog about it and let them know you've done so. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. It's free and it's a good thing to do! My badge is in the sidebar.

In other news, keep your eyes peeled on Friday for the latest installment of 5 questions! I'll be sharing another tutorial in the coming weeks and there are some works in progress that will be making their way onto a post near you in the future too. Hope your week is going well!
