the environmentally friendly challenge

19 Apr

a couple of weeks ago they described on the news how all the plastic bags from our trash fills up our garbage dumps, and the other day in the grocery store i saw the paper bags and decided that i will choose paper bags if possible from now on. my thoughts spinning around this i thought it’d be interesting to tag people with a challenge that may result in some reflections on the matter:

List 3 things environmentally friendly things you do:

1. i choose paper bags over plastic (i’ve just started that one…)

2. i don’t own a car! i commute by train to work.

3. i’ve reserved myself from adressed advertisments

And list 3 things you do that is not in the name of sustainable development:

1. i like to travel. last year i went to copenhagen, new york, canada, spain and ireland by plane in addition to about 3 domestic round trips….

2. i live in a large apartment with high ceilings….

3.  i buy clothes when i feel like something fresh, not when my clothes are worn out….

And challenge 3 other bloggers to answer the same 6 questions.

i challenge these 3 bloggers: Dawn, Eva, and Maud.

 and to my norwegian readers – check out this web-page for things to think about.

    We have switched mostly to fluorescent bulbs, in our lights! I’ve been considering using paper more than plastic. I need some plastic to pick up my dog’s outside waste, though. I don’t know if I can eliminate them altogether.

    Oh yeah. We drive a diesel car, which gets far better mileage, than our gas-fueled cars, and it’s the one we take, when we go on vacation.

    Also, our city went to LED traffic lights, because they last longer and are cheaper, but they are better for the environment, too.

    how about simply crocheting a shoppingnet or two? that saves even more resoures! I’ve got this pattern from Erika Knights “Simple Crochet” (“Hekling med stil”) that I’m more than willing to share with anyone who wants to help saving the environment in a crochetfriendly way! ;o)
