We are very proud of all we’ve accomplished this year!
We took great consciounsness of our consommation habits and lower it by only buying the strict necessary and previously own as much as possible. We started to make our own soap from basic ingredients like baking soda and vinegar , we make all our meals from scratch with basics ingredients (bread, yogourt etc), we buy bulk and have found a store where we can refill our containers, we stopped using disposable item like kleenex and paper towel (we use fabrics instead), We tried to grow our food last summer but we need some improvements on this, we buy local at farmers market, we started worms/composting farm, wich as brought us from a bag of garbage a week to 1 bag a month (and not full) for a familly of 4 and a large dog!
Our next year (2012) goal, is to grow more of our food (window farm, better garden planning), find a way to use less the car with our 2 preschoolers (find a tricycle with a space to carry kids), succed to sell the second car (wich is unused, always parked), learning to make more things by our own, and more!!!
