Living Green past and future

I was reading about green new year’s resolutions over on Nature Moms Blog and started thinking about what I accomplished this past year to live a greener lifestyle and how I can improve on that in 2008. Here’s what I came up with.

In 2007, I…:

— Started using my compost bin, significantly reducing the amount of food waste that goes into the garbage

— Grew a few vegetables in a “pot” garden in my yard

— Bought some food at the farmer’s market

— Started regularly using reusable grocery bags

— Replaced the majority of our light bulbs with CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs)

— Began using cloth napkins

— Switched to a natural (Charlie’s) laundry soap

— Subscribed to GreenDimes (thanks to a gift from my mom)

— Freecycled, donated and sold unwanted items

Green goals for 2008:

— Continue with the things listed above and…

— Grow a bigger garden

— Possibly join a CSA to eat more locally and shop at the farmer’s market

— Buy some cloth diapers that can stand up to Julian’s nighttime pees and stop using disposables (7th Generation) at night (We cloth diaper during the day.)

— Learn how to can foods

— Learn how to make my own yogurt

— Read “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

That’s all that’s coming to me at the moment, but I’m sure I will think of more later and may add to the list as I it comes to me.

I have other personal goals for the new year as well, but will save those for another post, another time.

What about you? What are your green goals for 2008?
