Environmentalist or Not So Much?

Okay so I was reading Bethany joy Galeotti's blog, and I agree with where she stands on the "Go Green" mantra that goes on in peoples everyday lives : I'm far from being a hippie. I don't shop with canvas bags, although I genuinely would like to remember that they are in the trunk of my car EVERY time I go to the grocery store. When I thaw meat, I leave it in a bowl of running water for about an hour (and feel guilty about it). When I take a shower, I enjoy it for however long I like (and don't feel guilty about it). I use disposable diapers from Seventh Generation (also no guilt there). One of our cars is not a hybrid and I drive it everywhere, usually without carpooling. I don't unplug my computer or toaster daily-- okay, EVER... and I still throw away many plastic bags (yes, I said it, so all of you who are also too busy to remember when recycling day is-- or worse, who have to go take your recycling to the Recycling Center-- can join me in my shame)."

The only difference is I do use canvas bags when shopping, of course only when I remember them.  I don't thaw meat. Okay I admit I DO take long showers and I don't feel guilty about. I don't change diapers ( thank god.). I don't drive a car. And everything else is about right. Now here are a few cool pics of Bethany being green. In case you haven't noticed, I love photography.

The one right above is my favorite. I love you guys thanks for being great and making an effort to save the planet whether your an extremist or a laid back activist like me, you are great!
