We definitely try to be eco conscious, although it doesn't always work out how we imagine it to.
There is sometimes a fine line between being eco friendly and frugal and having no fun. But then, I guess there's a fine line between spending lots of money and not caring at all about the environment and being, well. Someone I wouldn't want to be.
I am very aware of the need to use water wisely,and I am also very keen to make certain our native wildlife are protected. I use re-usable shopping bags when buying groceries,and I do feel that I do my bit to b e Eco-Friendly!!! But I am not at all 'over the top',or hypocritical about it.
Yes and no. There was a time when I was more eco conscious, but then I started working full time. Buying local and organic affordably, making most of my own bread, crackers and condiments and making my own cleaning products took up a lot of my time. I still would be doing many of things if I had the time. Buying and living eco consciously can be expensive.
I try to be eco-conscious. I try to keep abreast of current and local issues in this regard and to "do my bit" to help. With 2 small children though, if there is a clash of interests then my family wins out.
