What is the most RADICAL environ. thing you've done? - Page 2

post #21 of 30
Thanks for this neat thread...it gets me motivated as well!

We haven't done anything too awesome. Cloth diapers on the Babes (TWINS...so maybe that makes it somewhat of an accomplishment!) and we never use disposable anything or ANY form of harsh cleaners in the house. The clothesline is my best friend during nice weather. We are also looking into a corn-burning stove to heat our house. We will have one as soon as we can afford it!

My DH makes his own fuel from recycled veggie grease!

Cool thread! Good for new ideas!

Here's some of what we do:
We just switched or electric company to support power that comes from renewable resources. I can dig up the link if anyones interested.
We use cloth baby wipes
Eat 90% organic
We compost
Heat with wood
Have a clothes line
Buy local food when we can
Are vegetarian
recycle
Don't buy plastic stuff and buy thinks with less packaging

Angelbee- That is inspirational! I hope my kids do stuff like that, too!

I thought of something else we're PLANNING to do.

I've registered with Roots & Shoots. I'm starting a group for little ones where we will do service work to help animals the environment and humanity.
Anyone can start a group. You pay $35 and they send you all the info on how to do it. http://www.rootsandshoots.org/

I used to be a radical animal rights activist (motherhood has tamed me a bit!). I've been to protests against the circus. I was going to go to a protest against Huntington, but got arrested at a WTO protest before I could go.
I'm vegetarian, trying to go back to veganism. I try to conserve energy when I can.

We do most of the stuff mentioned.
The most radical thing we are doing is that we are in the process of becoming nomads. Dh and I are educating ourselves and converting a school bus into an enviromental friendly "rolling home". Of course it'll run off of veggie oil and we will be using recycled things for the renovation.

The info for CT is at www.ctcleanenergyoptions.com
Maybe you can contact them and see if there is a similar program for your state?
