The Greening of Chuck

That’s right folks I am joining the movement. I am greening my life. Thanks to Brian for the props on his blog. He has inspired most of this.

Here is what I have done to date:

Increased my recycling efforts. Recycling more paperboard and office paper in addition to the newspapers.

Purchased a composter from Sam’s Club to recycle my food scraps.

These two items have reduced my weekly trash from 3-4 bags to 1-2 bags.

Purchased a 1997 Honda Civic to use as my daily commuter car. 28 MPG City/ 35 MPG highway. While this was mostly financially motivated, since the Dodge gets 11 MPG back and forth to work, I like to think that at least it also partially helps the environment.

Update 4/29/08 – Although I do own a pair of Crocs I have not purchased Birkenstock’s, started listening to the Indigo Girls, or started preaching the virtues of Hemp.
