Sustainable Living

Hi there,

Wow the weekend just flew by so fast! Today we went to the Sustainable Living expo, which has got me thinking a lot about what we do for the environment and what we should be doing. It was very interesting, with a wide range of displays from solar water, organic food, furniture from recycled timber, and sustainable architecture. It seems to be so important these days to think about these issues and yet sometimes it can seem so difficult and overwhelming to make a difference, but the point of today really was that every little bit does help. So recycling, turing lights off (something I must get better at), walking or riding my bike more often for short trips, all these little things I can do, rd is already so good with all of these things and I admire this so much in him.

So all in all it was a very good weekend for learning new things. I hope you all had a great weekend too!

The expo sounds cool! I think Chicago is hosting an expo like that soon. I will have to check it out.

It's so true. Travis and I do as much as we can to help the environment. It all adds up!

nice color combo, and I am glad that you learned a lot, sharing your passion, even if it isn't in the form of specific ideas, is inspiring to everyone around you :)
