I am reading the book 'Eco-Friendly Families' and a statistic in the book jumped out at me concerning this 'small steps' logic. It reported that if every household in the United States were to change a blown light bulb to an energy efficient bulb their effect would be enormous, preventing greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to that from 800,000 cars and save enough energy to light 2.5 million homes for an entire year. Now if that isn't an incentive to make small changes I don't know what is.
And so here is our small change, making our own laundry powder.
|Grate up some Velvet laundry soap|
|2 cups worth|
|Add 1 cup of Washing Soda|
|1 Cup of Borax|
Today marked the last day with Luke at home, he is back to the daily grind tomorrow. I will really miss his help, darling Lila is having a rough time with her molars and has been super grizzly. Usually when she is like this and it's just her and I we head to the shops to distract her and of course I usually make a feel good purchase of chocolate or something along those lines. Perhaps instead of walking the shops I should endeavour to create more moments like this
