put a lemon on it

New year, new ways...

...for me to save Mother Earth that is.

The New year is upon us. I decided to save water (and money while i'm at it) by curbing what i use at home. Easiest way was to use the "Tabo" (dipper) system when bathing (goodbye showers) --- that way i can heat up water when it's too cold.

I've also used the "brick" method for my toilet --- that is let something else occupy the space water is in so the are is filled up by water less (in this case, a brick). This not only fills up the tank faster, it also lessens the use of water. Sans the brick, i decided to use a water bottle filled with stones to keep it from floating. Hey it works ;-)

My friend gave me one of those Enviro-Sax for Christmas --- a wonderful gift indeed! It's brightly colored with a graphic design, which makes my purchases not only eco-friendly, it's also lovely to look at (and use). You can always use an old bag/ cloth bag for your purchases ---i am glad that more and more stores in the city are now cool with reusing bags as purchase holders ---remember to hold on to your receipts when you're shopping to avoid the suspicion of shoplifting!

It's the little details that make up the big picture, so you can ALWAYS do something good for Mother Earth everyday! :-) Cheers and keep on savin'!

Hey everybody! Happy New Year!

Thought I would send along this video from my friend Jay Leno about a new wind turbine called the MagWind from Enviro-Energies ( that he and I will be installing soon. As many of you have asked about 'vertical axis wind turbines', I thought you'd like to see the latest in this technology. Watch the video at:

A New Year, A new Lease on Life...

Happy New Year all!

I'm excited to start 2009 with new ideas and ways to keep green. I call it my eco-lutions

A friend of mine gave me a lovely eco-bag which is nicely printed with spots (to ring in the money i hope!)and made of sturdy material so i can easily re-use it to fit my needs.

In keeping with my resolution to be more fit, i've taken up a longer walking route to the mall near my place and started jump rope.

My baby has also been very sweet enough to help me in segregating our garbage to include a bag for recyclabe stuff, like aluminum cans, plastics and paper. Yay!

hahahah :-D hopefully this won't be a fad...wish me luck! Happy new year All! May 2009 be a green and fabulous year!
