IF: Expired

Recycle those old expired energy burning household items and make way for the new! 

In celebrating the upcoming Earth Day and the fact that I get to keep my job with CBS Radio Baltimore when I move, I'm posting the cover I illustrated for their annual Eye on Green publication.  Yay work!!!  Work is always good.  In fact, I'm going to see what else I can get into when I get settled in Phoenix.  We move April 21st!

But back on the topic of being green, my husband and I are big advocates.  We started out small, but it's kinda grown on us throughout the years.  We have managed to upgrade mostly all of our appliances to new energy star models.  Compact Fluorescent light bulbs are in every room in the house.  We recycle everything from all recyclable trash items & car fluids (oil, brake & transmission fluids) to old electronics, batteries and donating our old stuff to goodwill.  We even have a built-in water filtration system that was easy to install, and carry reusable aluminum water bottles around.  And the reusable grocery totes. . . I don't do that yet, but it's next on the list.  Wow. . . it sounds like we do a lot, but it really doesn't feel like it!  It's easy once you get into the habit.

cynthia,
the idea you put forward is something which is the necessity of the time...
i think the CFL is being fast replaced by the LED bulbs...
which are more energy efficient...
in kerala, we find everywhere growing building process which subvert the nature...
