Always trying to do our part......

Well today Shawn and I signed up to have 60% of our electricity come from Windtricity. I am sure we will up it to 100% after we head in to summer and learn what are electricity bill will be like with the A/C running more to cool us from all the heat San Antonio gets during the summer .....So it costs a little more a month, we are talking a trip to Starbucks or one lunch out, basically for us it was another no brain-er decision to help reduce our Carbon Footprint.....I try to do all I can, knowing that I will not be able to give up our Suburban or those disposable diapers anytime soon.....We have CFL and or LED lights/bulbs for all our lights, majority of the products we buy for cleaning are green, we buy many organic products and local produce, we have a washer & dryer, dishwasher, and refrigerator that are all energy efficient and/or use less water, we have 3 big bins of recycling overflowing every week, and now we have wind powered electricity.....Ahhh, we are so excited to be able to take advantage of this offer......Just wanted to share since Earth Day is coming up in April 22nd.....

Check out this US Carbon Footprint Map, an interactive United States Carbon Footprint Map, illustrating Greenest States to Cities. This site has all sorts of stats on individual State & City energy consumptions, demographics and much more down to your local US City level...
