Dorothy's photo challenge for the week was to find something that represents your efforts to go green. My household has been recycling for years but a news report this week about the number of plastic shopping bags used in the country really got my attention. I decided that, instead of recycling them, it would be better not to use them at all and finally purchased the reusable grocery bags.
Something I feel very strongly about is that I refuse to use pesticides in my home or herbicides on my lawn because I don't want my family exposed to the chemicals. This means that I occasionally have ants in my kitchen and dandelions in my lawn.
