Two Green Thumbs Up

In my last post I joked about giving out an award to folks who find creative ways to go Green. I was joking about the doctor, but I am serious about recognizing folks who find ways for average people to live naturally, but responsibly.

My first, Two Green Thumbs Up award recipient is:

Remember those clothes you have stuffed in the back of the closet, or the pup tent hiding in the far corner of the garage, you can liberate them from their place of exile and give them new life. You simply post a message on freecycle with what it is you no longer need and no longer wish to cram into the back of the basement. Someone sees your ad and contacts you to make arrangements to pick it up and in no time, you've taken you closet back, someone else hasn't wasted their money, and the landfill stays hungry.

Remember those ice packs and cardboard boxes that I've mention in a few posts? This is how I "reused" them. You'd be surprised at the items people give away.

So take a look around your home. Do you really need that? I mean, it hasn't seen the light of day since MTV played music. Go to and let someone else enjoy what you have finished enjoying.
