Happy Earth Day!!
A few tips for conserving and making a positive mark on this beautiful planet we call home:
  1. Car pool (Save the planet and your wallet, too!)
  2. Use energy efficient light bulbs and turn lights off when not in use.
  3. Bring your own reusable shopping bags for your grocery runs.
  4. Go paperless.  Receive your bills and monthly bank statements online.
  5. Turn the water off!  Make sure your laundry and dish loads are full to maximize usage.
  6. Use green cleaning products.
  7. Buy local produce and buy in-season goods.
  8. Invest in a programmable thermostat and be conservative with your settings.
  9. Avoid bottled water and invest in a reusable thermos for hydration on the go.
  10. Take yourself off junk mail lists by going here.
And of course: Reduce, reuse, recycle!

We planted a new one in its spot and used this one as firewood.  
It provided us with warm, cozy fires for three winters.}
