About Me

I am starting this blog to track my efforts to make my life, family and home more eco-friendly.  With all of the troubles our world is experiencing both economically and environmentally, I feel that I should make an effort to live as lightly on this planet as possible.

I am a suburban wife and mother of 2 really neat boys, we live in South Florida with our dog, fish, and occasional guest hamster.  I grew up in California where I was completely indoctrinated into the eco-friendly movement since elementary school.  I actually remember a lesson in 2nd grade that included role playing of picking up litter in the park and singing a song about not wanting to be a litterbug!  Those lessons really stuck with me and now as an adult I find myself looking for ways to lighten my family’s impact on the earth.

Since I have always been “green” at heart I have been living a somewhat eco-friendly lifestyle for some time, but now I really want to push myself to take it further.  The trick is that I don’t have unlimited resources to make huge changes like installing a full house solar power system or buying a new electric or hybrid car, so my goal is to find all of the ways that a regular family like mine can save energy and money while working toward a more sustainable life.

What types of changes will be be willing and able to make? That is what we are here to find out. I invite you to follow along with me on this exciting new adventure – My Ecoventure.
