We Are Going Green

May 4, 2008

We’ve started the process of making our house more environmentally friendly. This is what we’ve done so far:

All organic, natural cleaning products
80% florescent lights (the rest have dimmers – need a florescent that can handle dimmers)
recycling all paper, plastic, glass, cans
composting kitchen waste
Bamboo sheets

Still To Do:

Call city recycling and buy the outdoor composter
Build boxes to collect larger yard debris to be used in the composter (50-50% green to brown ratio)
Paint the master bathroom with no VOC paint
Paint our bedroom with no VOC paint
Finish building the raised beds.
