How about this Peter,
We have gardened organic since we were a child,, So that is a long time,,LOL,,We have always basically "greened our home" in a sense no matter what we lived in.
When we were finally able to build our own home we built it around our lifestyle.Green, organic as possible, using as much local sources as possible etc...Our home show cases what we do from the gardens on the outside to the hundred or so plants growing indoors to the green roof..
Both myself and my parents have always garden so I cant say that I green my home because I took up gardening.
However I do have CF light bulb, lower my heat in the winter, use AC for less than 20 days per year.
Hardly use a dryer and hand wash alot of our clothes.
Try to minimize usage of the fridge, by using the pantry or tap water as much as possible.
I do want to upgrade to from CF light bulb to LED light bulb, and also use a solaroven vs gas/electric cooking in the near future.
I am assuming that when you use the word green you are referring to 4R: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Revitalize.
Electric, Gas/Heat, Water consumption and possible production (solar/wind).
Maybe you also mean household cleaners/products and pharmaceuticals vs herbs.
Or do you also mean clothes material (man-made vs natural).
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect
You've gotta fight it! Don't give in! Read this tiny ad:
