Do you recycle? Norm and I try to. We have containers for our plastic and glass in the kitchen, our office, laundry room and garage. Until last week, we have had just one container for paper--the one in the garage, and we stash that full of newspapers and boxes we have broken down. Now, we've added one to the office, to try and capture more of the paper from there.

Norm takes the Metro (subway) to work everyday--and drives his muy fuel efficient Smart Car. We use those gawdawful CFL lightbulbs (I can't stand the light they emit--it's just ugly, so we don't use them in every lamp.) We turn off lights when we leave a room. I turn shampoos bottles upside down to get every last drop out of them (well, the truth there is that I'm not trying to be eco-friendly--I'm just cheap!)

So, I think we're doing a pretty decent job trying to do our part....

.....until I started subscribing to this newsletter: The Ideal Bite. A short (and sassy) e-mail delivered everyday with a promise of never selling your e-mail address and NO spam. The newsletter gives you a few simple choices of changes you can make in all kinds of categories: cleaning, pets, vacations and yes, even sex. The Bite Team also gives cocktail facts to wow someone at the next party you go to! Here is a little nugget they posted last year:

If 10,000 Biters walk next door instead of driving 10 miles to their next booty call, we'll save the CO2 created by running a vibrator nonstop for 324 years.

So, sign up for their newsletter, impress a fellow party-goer, save a tree, and love your neighbor.

You know you wanna!!

Hi Sommer! Glad you enjoy! I linked to your blog--no pressure, but law school just might get in the way of blogging....

I'm just sayin'...
