On A Quest For...A Greener Kitchen
I am no Ed Begley, but these baby steps go a long way toward greener living in the kitchen. Try a few and see. Oh, and as I mentioned above, I'm especially proud of curbing excessive use of paper products in order to save trees. Just yesterday (Thursday,the day after Paula Deen announced two more winners on the Real Women Of Philadelphia Contest, and I along with a few hundred other women was not one of them) I decided to buy this nifty hard plastic, hot and cold container at Starbucks for my daily latte for under $12... just to console my feelings of discouragement for not having been chosen. I do feel a tiny bit better. And, I did use a cloth handkerchief to hold back my tears instead of a whole box of Kleenex. Don't know what I'm gonna buy myself next Thursday...maybe a brand new 2010 Toyota Prius to replace my beloved 2008 model which gets almost 50 miles per gallon and emits hardly any vapors into our atmosphere)...surely that will console my impending gloom and desperation...but, I do doubt it.
