We're Green

Since we have been gone we have heard that it is popular to be green back in the States.

We started thinking about our life here and how we are pretty "green" out of necessity.  Here are some examples:

  • All our lights are fluorescent bulbs.
  • Our hot water comes from solar panels and when it is cloudy we build a fire that heats the water.
  • All our laundry is dried outside on a line
  • Our drinking water is collected off our roof and stored in a large tank.  Once a day we fill a header tank on the roof and then the water is gravity fed.
  • We don't have a car and walk almost everywhere we go. 
  • The fruit and produce we eat comes from local gardens that are grown organically.
