Going Green

Last weekend Brian and I went Mt. Trashmore for our daily run (well it's a run until I run out of air and my legs get tired...then becomes a walk haha) Well at Trashmore it was Earth Day with lots of booths set up letting you know how you can green your lifestyle a bit more. I have to admit, I haven't been the best at recycling since I moved to Hampton Roads. In Fredericksburg, there was a dump with recycling right near my apartment...it was so easy to just drop it off. But here I don't have that convenience. So my apt was overrun with plastic bottles and plastic bags that I planned on taking somewhere...at some point.

So I decided to make a better effort and got some of the mesh bags from the grocery store that are reusable. They're great, hold a lot and make it soooo much easier to carry big loads of groceries up 3 flights of stairs! The only problem is, I sometimes forget to take them to the store, especially if I'm just running in for one thing, ya know? But that problem has now been solved because I found this at Target today...for about a dollar it's a reusable bag that folds and zips up and you can just carry it in your purse! Best dollar I've spent in a long time...except for that Twix bar...a dollar is always well spent on chocolate :)
