This blog was started, and is intended to illustrate that environmentalism happens through small acts, is not difficult, and that it does not always have to be some big life changing event that forces you to live in the tree tops with no electricity. All that being said, one of my small acts was to start this blog to gain some friends to help me save the world.

Just a few things

Well I have been away for a while, but I am here to say I am back.  Yay I am sure that is what everyone is saying (deflating my fat head now).  Anyway I hope all has been well with the world.  I have been busy moving, traveling around a bit, and just being super busy.  
As I mentioned we recently moved,  so I had to make sure to sign up to take our new house of the junk mail list.  If you want to reduce the amount of junk mail you receive this is a great site  It really helped at the last house and I hope it cuts down on all that extra paper we receive.  The amount of paper, water, and energy it takes to make and deliver junk mail is gross so I won't scare you with that data, just know it is bad.  If you do not believe you can research it.
Not much happening on the Leftover Love front.  But now that the dust is settling a bit I should be able to regain my focus and my aggressive (aka annoying) position on trying to make something happen.  I will say that I was out last night and the waiter (super nice guy) complimented me on using my own container.  I knew it was cool.  
I would like to mention one last thing before I go and start thinking of the many other awesome blog entries I plan to write in the near future.  I am a walker.  Not an actual metal walker with tennis balls on the feet, but someone who is now able to walk to the grocery shop and a few other shops around me.  OMG it is awesome.   The problem is that the grocery shop at  the top pf our street does not have a plastic bag recycling bin yet and I have so much plastic that needs to  be recycled (I guess they don't really get me yet).  So my goal is to try and get that set up for them soon.  Since the town we are living in at the moment makes it very difficult to be able to recycle plastic bags.  Haha that will change soon my friends, oh yes it will change.
Anyway have a great October 6th.  Much love to all.
