New Green self-discoveries

I discovered a few weeks ago that I am becoming a "closet" environmentalist. For years I have been frugal and everything that goes along with it.

Since starting this blog and focusing on going green I have become so much more aware of everything that I use.

I made the discovery when putting a lean pockets in the microwave for supper. I cringed as I threw away the box, the plastic wrapping and then two minutes later the sleeve that I cooked the Lean pocket in, all for a mere 270 calories.

Looking back at the decision I realize that I'm making a change, not necessarily for the planet but a lifestyle change. I think it is better to make it part of a healthy lifestayle rather than...oh yeah I should probably recycle this.
