I lived in California over 2o years ago and the lifestyles and awareness about environmental issues were much more advanced than where I had grown up in Georgia. It was there that I first learned about recycling and conservation.
Having lived in many places since…including Okinawa, Japan where water conservation was a necessity, I’ve learned a lot about these topics.
Now, back in a small town in Georgia where it’s quite difficult to recycle and buy organic and so forth, I’ve learned to adapt. I’ve regressed in my own habits and though I still feel a twinge of guilt when I throw plastics in the trash, but I sense a growing change in our community and in the United States.
It seems that rising gas and food prices are forcing us to be more economical.
There are thousands of sites about Going Green on the internet, but this one will be different because it will be my personal experience as a mom who has decided to make a difference by making small changes being green but….not going extreme.
My primary focus is a simple change we can make by changing our household cleaners to a more economical and environmentally friendlier brand like Shaklee’s Get Clean products. This small act alone can reduce waste in the landfills, keep toxic chemicals from our home, and save lots of money in our household budgets!

Recently, I wrote about some easy ways to go green that actually save you money.
One of the tips I wrote about was using reusable shopping bags instead of asking for paper or plastic. I think it’s common knowledge that we are wasting resources and filling our landfills with all the bags we use.
Now, my husband does a lot of the shopping, so the burden of going green while shopping was placed on him. I had ordered some reusable shopping bags and off he went to the store.
He told me he was really nervous about it, because no one in our small town was doing such a thing and he was afraid of the reaction of everyone.
But, he and our daughter found the courage and did it anyway.
I got a phone call while he was at the check out stand. “Where did you get these bags? I’ve got a lady here in line with me who wants to get some. And there is another lady standing here reusing her bags because her husband insisted she not waste the bags they had a home.”
That was so funny. He was very nervous and it was awkward, but it got a lot of positive attention and even converted one more person to make a change.
Have you used reusable bags? If so, what was the reaction of others in line? Is it common where you shop?
