Ways of living a sustainable life..

We just got a nice afternoon rain shower to fill our rain water barrel, our composter is breaking down our kitchen wastes/ junk mail and our new vegtable garden is just growing and growing.

We think it is important to take care of our environment and we try to do our best to tread lightly on the earth while living a “regular/ civalized life”.

Sustainable Living- is “use of resources in a manner that allows the resources to be replenished by natural systems”.

Everyone can lead a more sustainable life. Things like conserving water, recycling and even vegtable gardening make life more sustainable. You can make life more sustainable by:

  1. Recycling-Reusing and conserving
  2. Conserving water at home

Try to find a few things that you can do today to live more susutainable and share them with us!

  • I’m trying to find a mini composter. Although I live in the country someone told me that you can’t have a composter too close to your neighbours?? I’ll have to check into it. I hate throwing applecores, potato peels, etc in the garbage. Is there such a thing as a composter that won’t affend anyone?
