I ran across a most interesting article last February when it appeared in my Benjamin Moore “Google Alerts.” Go figure. It has been whispering to me ever since, and as a nod to Earth Day I thought I would share.
Michelle Slatalla writes for the New York Times and this is the story of her neighbor Bea, “the Priestess of Waste-Free Living.” I admire Bea’s commitment to our planet. I love her mantra: Refuse, refuse, refuse. Then reduce, reuse, recycle (and only in that order) . Incorporating a couple of Bea’s lifestyle choices into our own lives should not be that difficult. There’s always room for improvement.
Need more ideas? Next weekend, May 1 & 2, 2010, is the LivingGreen Expo at the State Fairgrounds.
