As I take my cleaning products out of my plastic bags that I drove 20 minutes to get, it hits me like a ton of Styrofoam bricks. I am so not green I am black. I hate to admit it, but that's the first step right?
I seem to skim past those blogs about the environment, not because I don't care, I just think sometimes that it's just too hard to change my ways. I look at those recyclable bags at the store, and have even gotten scolded by friends when shopping because I don't have them. Not one! I let my son play in the sink because it gives me 10 minutes of peace, I don't wash in cold water unless it's darks. I could go on and on, but why make myself look even worse?
Around ever corner at the grocery store are those organic, recycle, save the planet bags just glaring at me like I am the only person on earth who isn't buying them. I have no beef with those bags, I happen to like them. But what if I take a Target bag into Walmart, will I be scoffed at? Is it a unwritten no-no?
I am not sure how I am going to go about this, but I just think it's time. It's time for a change in my house. Like it or not, it's the right thing and I am happy about this decision. Now, where to start? Baby steps, right?
