What's Been Your Biggest, Coolest, Eco-Friendliest Change This Year?
Did you switch out all the incandescent bulbs in your house to LEDs?
Maybe you gave away your car and bought a bike.
Or planted a huge organic garden to grow more of your own food.
Started raising chickens in the back yard? (Free range, of course!)
Finally got a clothesline so you can use the sun to dry your laundry?
Whatever environmental change you made, we want to hear about it...by December 30!
If you let us know how you went "eco" in 2010, we'll automatically enter you in a contest to win a free, autographed copy of my latest book, Big Green Purse: Use Your Spending Power to Create a Cleaner, Greener World.
Just leave a comment on this post with the following info:
* The change you made.
* Why you made it.
* How much it cost (or saved you).
* What you plan to do next.
If you've thought about going green in some way but have yet to make it happen, do it now so you can tell us about it.
What's the biggest change I made? I stopped getting printed newspapers delivered at home. I did it because I hated to see all the paper wasted, especially on advertising supplements that I never use. Right now, it's saving me the cost of the subscription. Next year, I think I'll have to start paying to read the paper online. But this wasn't a cost issue for me as much as it was an environmental one.
I'm looking to you all for inspiration! Please share your changes. We'll highlight your stories on December 31 when we announce our prize winner.
