My hubby was kind enough to re-do the bathroom floors for me yesterday. On his day off. Bless his heart. He's not quite done so no pictures yet, but it's infinitely better.
We are trying to make this house more efficient and therefore more green, but it's old and there is still a LOT to do. I just keep telling myself patience grasshopper...
Right. Anyway, without having to completely renovate your home, one of the best ways to go green is to shop local. Support small business owners and stay local. The less miles your food has to travle, the better. Now I love Walmart, I do, and do shop there once or twice a month, but I do try and make what I can myself and I do try and shop local when I can as well.
Micah shops at the local hardware/feed store when he can too (though we do occasionally have to go to Lowe's).
Farmers markets are opening up around our area which is one of the easiest and best ways to stay local. Supporting your local farmer is a win win situation. Your food will be fresher and you'll see exactly whose two hands raised the food you are about to consume. I'll also love to shop on Etsy, which isn't technically shopping local, but it is supporting small business owners (which is a good idea too).
If you can't hit the farmer's markets, you can join a CSA. We never have just because we grow our own garden, but I hear very good things about these programs.

But of course, you can't get anymore local than growing your own food. And you know how I feel about that. :)
