green is my favorite color

I hope you are using cloth grocery bags! At Kroger we get 3 cents back for every bag we have. In less than 34 visits to the grocery store the bags have payed for themselves. I absolutely love to go into the store do my shopping get in line, hand the clerk my bags, and watch her subtract money off my total all because we brought in our own bags. And yes, I am that obnoxious person in front of you that turns and says, see it pays to be green!

Another good idea that we love is Freecycle. If you haven't heard of Freecycle then you are really missing out. Freecycle is a grassroots movement to keep perfectly good stuff out of landfills. Membership is free and they are nation wide. All you have to do is go here , search out a group in your hometown and sign up. You can get daily e-mails with posting of items that people are giving away.

If you know if any other green ideas please post them here. I always love to hear how others are helping out mother earth.

I was GOING to bring some bags into Walmart, but forgot like a dummy. I don't think Walmart gives money back!!!

We recycle cans. And we have a huge stack of scratch paper. See ya Tina

EXCELLENT post! I wish our local grocer offered a discount for cloth bags!
