Waking up on the Greener Side of the Bed


It occurred to me as I was walking to work this morning that there’s a lot I do each day to start my day. A lot of which are earthy friendly and healthy choices. I thought I’d share some of my morning routines, it will help me discover ways in I can improve as well. Please comment on this post, share the ways you start your day green!
Here’s how I start my day: I wake up, take as short of a shower as I can (to save water of course) with my delicious organic French vanilla shower gel, natural (not fully organic ingredients, I am working on finding one I like as much!) shampoo and conditioner and then I hop out and dry off with my organic cotton towel (which are amazing by the way, sooo soft). I make sure lights are off before heading to the kitchen to make lunch of whole wheat bread slathered with natural peanut butter and natural jam tucked into a reusable container. Then I throw some organic baby carrots or crackers into another reusable container. Having completed my lunch preparation I finish getting ready, water my 7 plants, make sure everything is unplugged and/or turned off and head to the bus. Once out, I duck into get my morning iced coffee (yes I know I could bring my own but with a packed train it seems like a slasher film waiting to happen). I do bring my own reused “sleeve” holder to keep my hands from freezing off on the walk to the office though and I pour in yummy organic vanilla soy milk. Once in the office I check on 2 small plants at my desk, and get cracking on the day…. How do you start your day green?

Being retired has it's benefits - - one of which is NOT having to get up early and go to the office! I enjoy my free-trade coffee out on the deck while reading the morning paper and thinking about how to make the most of my day.
