The Owens Family is Going Green!

27 Jun

So we’re jumping on the GREEN bandwagon. We’ve both come to the conclusion that global warming is NOT a vast right-wing conspiracy, and the overwhelming majority of scientists are correct–humans are having detrimental effects on the planet. So here’s what we’re doing:

Replacing our regular light bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs (CFLs for short)

Purchasing and driving a more fuel efficient vehicle (SUV to sporty, hot-mom Honda Odyssey)

Combining separate outings into one and car pooling when possible

AND…

we’re supporting a clean energy effort known as Renewable Choice Energy. I’ll let you click on the link and read about it, but basically for $15 more a month, our family is offsetting over 13,000 miles driven or the planting of 165 full grown trees! And trees are not cheap. Plus they take a long time to grow.

And the best part is we got a $50 gift card to Whole Foods. Except we don’t get to use it because we don’t have a Whole Foods, but Baton Rouge does. So my sweet, precious sister is the proud new recipient of the gift card. SO, check it out.

No, we’re not growing our own food. And I’m not pushing the triple stroller all over town. But I am at least more conscious about energy and water conservation.

We should all try and make an effort to do our part. Reduce your carbon footprint people!
