It's Easy Being Green

Considering it is Earth Day, I need to have a post about our environment.

The thing to remember about going green and taking care of our environment is to keep it simple and easy because if something is hard and expensive people won't do them. I found these 4 simple things to do in this month's edition of Cottage Living.

1. Eat local
Join a CSA or shop at your local farmer's market.

2. Use your feet
Burn calories, not gas.

3. Plant smart
Planting native plants can save you money on your water bill and your yard will look great.

4. Think little, for big results
Supporting local owned, independent cafe, restaurant, bookstore, hardware store, etc adds character to your community, can increase property values, and keeps the local economy afloat.
