Last night Gina Murphy-Darling, a.k.a. Mrs. Green of Tucson radio fame, presented at the Civano Neighbors neighborhood association annual meeting. (It just so happens that in addition to editing Terrain.org, I head up our new urbanist community’s neighborhood association, for better or worse….)
Here are her Top Ten Green Tips:
Oh the places you go… take reusable bags.
You can lead a horse to water… but make sure you have a reusable water bottlw with you.
Save on your energy bill… unplug cell phone chargers and other appliances when not in use.
Always shut your computer down… save energy, not to mention your workplace will be about 5 degrees cooler.
Green birthday fun… make a meal for a friend or loved one instead of buying things that come in packaging.
If you are going to shop organic… buy organic milk, fruits, vegetables, and meat.
Remove ALL antibaaterial soap from your home… the plain old stuff works great.
