I had to think long and hard on what I did this year that made me a greener person. Growing up on a self-sustaining farm set me up for green and nothing but green.
I don’t have a car, never let water run down the sink while I brush my teeth and don’t use my air conditioning in the hot Philadelphia summers. Don’t get me wrong, I am reasonable; when clients arrive I turn on the cool air in my comfy office.
I can proclaim that this year I did not burn a single fire in my fireplace. I read a few years ago in the Sierra Magazine that wood burning was one of the worse pollutants. So sadly, I cut back my romantic, delightful fires.
This year I did not burn any wood. The dead wood I bought to center city Philadelphia from my NC farm in the back of my rental car is still sitting there in the bin.
For next year I plan to stop using the garbage disposal. Can anyone tell me a small, effective garbage transformer for center city living? It must not attract rodents.
