yeah, nothing like dirty chicken water to water and fertilize your plants :D

You can now see a link at the top that says "green". The list will expand with time.

Oh yeah, my mom and I work together in the mornings, so we carpool...that saves on the gas (which also helps the price as well as the environment :roll: )

One of the biggest things that I have done to "go green" is to use all organic products on my lawn and garden. The greenhouse I work at sells a great line of organic products that cost the same as the chemicals and work just as well. That helps cut down on chemical runoff. Another great thing is composting! You cut down on your waste and provide your garden with great fertilizer. I also only water my garden in the late evening.

I don't really have a lawn exactly... so I've never used any kinds of products myself... but that is good that they have natural products for that sort of thing. I would have figured they'd be more expensive... All those chemicals people poor out into their yards and stuff... they don't just vanish... they end up in your drinking water eventually... and before they get there, they pollute the rivers and streams and stuff all around us... not good.

I never did build an actual compost bin like I wanted to... but, I always throw food scraps outside somewhere... Partly because it's biodegradable, and will help the soil... and also because there's no point in filling up my trash barrels with stuff I can throw outside... and... rotting food inside the house often creates a fruit fly problem here...
