Why green?? Well, for us, it started when we read the book The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne. The subject of the book is not really "green living", but it did convict our hearts as we realized that we have been entrusted with resources and we had not been taking good care...or ANY care...of many of those resources. It convicted us in other areas as well, but those are blog posts for another day.
We started slowly...in the beginning we simply recycled cardboard and that was all. Then we added plastics and paper. This family threw away a LOT of paper!!!! We soon realized that we had almost no trash anymore and, for awhile, we even canceled our trash service. A few months later, we started back up with the trash service because, even though we had very little trash, we still needed for it to go somewhere. However, we were able to sign up for a lesser quantity, lower cost service.
There you have it...either my first of many or maybe my first and only post on green living at the Wood house.
