I've been Green Tagged!

I've been blog tagged! Twice in the same day, from Rhonda at Our Wedding Plus and Melissa at Masterpiece Weddings. My blog is feeling very special today! :)

This is the (insert forest sounds here and fade in narrator with echo)...."GREEEEN TAAAAAG"....
So...here's how it works: I share 3 ways I try to minimize my impact on the environment and then I continue the game by "tagging" five other bloggers.

number 1: I recycle everything I can. I love to recycle. But since everyone says that, let me give another number 1.

NEW number 1: I make sure to turn off all electronics, computers, fans, lights, printers, speakers, air conditioning, heaters, t.v. etc...when I'm not in the room/not at home/outside, etc... I have to admit, I only do this about 90% of the time, but I can assure you when I leave the room and the fan is still on, a little nagging voice attacks my brain and I eventually go back and turn it off.

number 2: I have a composter (the Tumbleweed Tumbler to be exact), which I use to compost things like vegetable and fruit scraps, grass clippings, and leaves. Composting is great because you are able to give back to the earth and reduce waste.

number 3: We save a lot of our "grey" water. Every time we turn the water on in the kitchen, we let the water collect in a bucket underneath the faucet, which we then transfer to a larger bucket outside. We use this water for bathing. KIDDING! No, we use it to water our plants and trees. I have to say that my mom actually started doing this before I did, so KUDOS to mom!

And that's about it folks. I conclude with a little photo of my bird baths! Oh, and the five bloggers I am tagging, apologies if you've already been tagged:

Eco-Chic Weddings
This is the awesome blog of Emily Anderson. As a former event designer at Martha Stewart Living, she has the eye and knack for all things beautiful and eco-chic for your wedding!

Martha Stewart Weddings: The Brides's Guide
This is a lovely blog from the Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Living, Darcy Miller. Full of beautiful wedding inspiration and some great behind the scenes photos!

Ikea Hacker
Imagine a place of everything Ikea...but repurposed. This is a great site, especially to get inspiration on what to do with old furniture.

Orange Beautiful
I love how calm and pretty this site is.

A $10,000 Wedding

Great for the low budget, but stylish bride.
