Mrs Green’s three stories

samIt’s the time of the week where I share the link love!

All of the stories chosen will help you go greener in some way – perhaps you’ll learn how to reuse something, reduce your carbon footprint, conserve water or take care of your health, naturally.

It’s easy being green

I love this tiny green tip from Re Nest this week. They ask whether you could use something for one more day; one more time?

Take a look around your home and take a look at the things you normally discard – plastic bags or deli containers for example. What about your sheets, could you keep them on the bed for one more day before washing them?

Read the rest of the article; “Simple green; use it one more day. One more time.”

Eco Running

This week I discovered a guy called Samuel Huber, over on TC’s Live Smart website.

Samuel combines his two passions of physical fitness and environmental sustainability by encouraging people to do eco running, which is combine walking and running with picking up litter!

Eco running is a great way to look after your health and the environment.

Easy vegetarian recipes

I’ve been vegetarian for 20 years now, but I remember those first tentative weeks. I replaced meat with dodgy looking substitute products, cowered in a corner from tofu and ate Quorn by the bucketful. I was probably more unhealthy than when I ate meat!

But those were the early days and now I understand about nutrition and can prepare, cook and eat a balanced diet.

Over on Eco Salon, they shared “10 easy, tasty vegetarian meals that you’ll make again and again” and I have to say, they all look delicious and several of them are indeed, the kinds of recipes I find myself cooking again and again.

    Hey Mrs. Green. Hope all is well. Your the best. Thanks again for including another link to my posts. This post on Eco-Running and Eco-Walking shows just how easy it is to get involved personally to make the world a better place. The weather here is getting a bit colder but I am still out there clipping off a few miles. FYI- check out the vegetarian recipe I posted last Thursday. You may already have one like it but since your a vegetarian I thought I’d point it out. it includes my favorite type of rice – Basmati. Enjoy and be well.

    @Ben: Hi Ben, yep, another inspiring story and something we can ALL do.

    @TC: Hey TC; good to see you. I saw the recipe; and was going to comment on how delicious it looked! I buy 5kg sacks of basmati, as, like you, it’s my favourite sort. Thanks for the idea 🙂
