Will I ever live naturally... enough?

Welcome to the January 2013 Natural Living Blog Carnival: Green Confessions. This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Natural Living Blog Carnival hosted by Happy Mothering and The Pistachio Project through the Green Moms Network. This month our members have written posts about areas of their life where they aren't as "green" as they may want to be.


I am feeling pretty darn good about my hippie rank these days.

  • I don't purchase paper towels, though I do use napkins we get from occasional fast food - to sop up bacon grease.
  • We only use TP when we run out of Family Cloth, and I have making more on my to do list. The fabric is in the closet.
  • We now live in a place that has free recycling, without even sorting! So I recycle a LOT. I'm recycling more than I ever have.
  • Now that we have a full kitchen, I'm cooking more meals. Less fast food is good for us and good for our budget.
  • I'm looking into starting a compost bin and a container garden - exciting green stuff right there!

So as green as I'm feeling... I know there are places I'm not so green. Reducing is better than recycling, right? I still use some products that are frowned upon - like NesQuik. We're addicted. Sorry. My husband drinks Koolaid. I felt it was a better choice than Mt. Dew, so sue me.

Life is a journey of forever trying to improve ourselves, is it not? I feel like if we stop trying to improve... I don't know what. We get stagnant? We wither and die?
