SPT-Earth Day...



We use to much TP!
I don't watch a lot of TV during the day. I usually have to much going on. One day last week I did catch about 25 minutes of Oprah. Her show that particular day was called Going Green: Resources for your family. I have so much that I can DO, but just am not DOING it. This show has totally motivated me! I know that we use way to much electricity at our house, way to mucn T.P., etc. We do recycle, and do use our big blue garbage can. I know that we could do better at this too. I have been pretty good at recycling clothes. We try to go thru our clothes 2 times a year, and give away what we don't use. I really like this challenge this week. It is one that I think of every now, and again, but not enough.

we go through way too much TP too...With only one girl here you'd think it would be better, but it's pretty bad!

P.S. I love how you have your toilet paper on there the "right" way...good girl! LOL

good morning michelle: girl, you made me laugh out loud when i realized you had posted a picture of TP! too funny.

i did a SPT of sorts, but not about earth. i answered "interview me meme" questions that kimberly interviewed me with. i am enjoying things like SPT and meme's because these give an opportunity to understand more about what makes others tick.

happy day to you earth chick :)
thanks for giving me my first laugh this morning :)

we all can do better. I love that we can all be more aware of what we really consume and do something about it! I loved on Oprah the idea to just refill a water bottle and not use bottle after bottle. i have to work on that one!

We use way too much TP too. (especially my hubby :) I go through the closets on birthdays and christmas as well just to rid of the junk to make room for more. I wish I would have seen that show--sounds interesting. Or did it just make you feel more guilty?

I can't remember the last time I watched oprah!! I must be the last one without Tivo! geesh.
Love the pix. You crack me up.TP is the one thing we can't live without! Just kidding.It's true though, doing what we can will help. Of course, there's always room to improve. I think this SPT today will be educational. Did you check out my sista's! Price Cream Parlor, and Anna ;) -ciao

What a beauty! You look darling in front of your roses in your green. I too need to be better about recycling. I've discovered that when we buy Costco TP we use less.... maybe give 'er a whirl.

I think the majority of people everywhere use too much tp! Especially little kids! :) I've always thought there should be tp dispensers...I wonder how well that would go over in public restrooms, 4 squares is ALL you get!!

Oh, I missed AI tonight, how was it?!

I've NEVER thought about t.p. consumption. Hm... I am going through everyone's SPT's in awe, realizing that I have so far to go in my awareness!
