Oh, I almost forgot!
This marks the beginning of Vanishing America's "Green Tip of the Day."
In every blog entry, I will provide an eco-friendly tip to help you participate in the "Green" movement.
Since I forgot to put it in the previous entry, I'll put it in this one:
Green Tip #1:
Oh, relax. It's easier than you think, and you don't have to give up that nice hot shower you love so much.
Simply put out a few small buckets (or one large one) under your gutters' downspouts to catch rain and use that collected water to water plants. Don't have gutters? Just put them somewhere in the open.
Don't like plants? Well, use the water to wash your car. It's clean, it's free, and every little bit helps. (Unless, of course, your part of the country is getting Acid Rain. Then you're out of luck. Sorry, you'll just have to move.)
