    So, what's the hippiest thing you do besides recycling?

    I think the biggest thing I do is cloth diapers. Most of my friends thought I was nuts to using them but then I tell them about how much money I'm saving plus I never have to worry about running out of diapers and having to make a midnight run to the store. They all think I'm a little off because of my hippiness so I didn't go into how long it takes for disposable diapers to degrade in land fills and how it is one of the worse kinds of pollution. I'm saving the Earth with every diaper I change. HAHA!

    I buy only organic personal care products (shampoo, soap, etc...), NEVER use styrofoam or plastic containers, buy things with the least packaging, coserve water usage, save rainwater for gardening, I know that there is more, but I just can't think right now!

    We cloth diaper our baby.

    Buy as much organc as possible, lately clothes and home stuff as well.

    Try to support Made in USA and locally grown products, to help cut down pollution.

    Drive as little as possible.

    There are mnay things we do.. I justhave the worst dry socket ever after a wisdom tooth removal that I can't consentrate.

    While I am as conservative as they come in every other aspect - there's a bit of organic-tree hugger-save the planet-non gmo-pesticide free in me. You want to know the real funny thing? DH is an agricultural pest control advisor. You know the kind, the kind that sprays and recommends spraying to control pests and mildew and fungus and etc..... He is not real happy with me we'll just say! You should see our coffee table. There are times when there is one of his "Pest Management" magazine thrown down next to my "Organic Living" magazines.....he doesn't think it's very funny. I am a quiet tree hugger though, b/c his job brings the money in. I just make silent food choices for our family.
