Hard to Go Green

31 08 2009

I’m not usually a trendy person.  The whole idea of “going green” would have been laughable to me a few years ago.  I’m still not very good at it.  Convenience and cost are still more important to me.  I was laughing yesterday when J and I pulled our groceries out of her SUV.  We always bring reusable shopping bags to the store….so we’re good that way.  The funny thing about the whole scene was J was carrying the reusable shopping bags and I was carrying a case of bottled water.  They kind of cancelled each other out. 

A few days ago, I was reading Forest Street KitchenImagineAnnie has a long, detailed post about the struggles of trying to live green for someone who really wants to.  I, on the other hand, am selfish. 

Times are tough.  I haven’t had a full time job since moving to Michigan, but J and I still do pretty well for ourselves.  We’re smart shoppers and unfortunately, that means not buying local, organic food from farmer’s markets.  I feel bad about it, but I don’t feel bad about saving the money.

I would encourage you all to check out the post “It’s Not Easy, Being Green.”   It’s a very interesting, well thought out post about how hard it is to actually live a green lifestyle.
