Reducing, Reusing, Recycling

Recycling at home, it can be confusing. Join Valerie Barber as she discovers as a housewife just exactly how much can be recycled.

So, one way Will and I want to help better the environment is recycling. We were already recycling bottles and cans in the kitchen but we always forget to recycle in the bathroom. So we made it a point to recycle more in both places and others around the house.

A Little Side Story

Will likes to grab a soda or energy drink (I know… I don’t want to hear it) before we leave the house to go shopping. It never used to bother me that he would throw away the can at the store before we walked in. However, now it bothers me when stores do not have a recycling can for things like this. I mean it is summer and it is hot here in Florida so people will be drinking things like juice, water, sodas and more. Also, for the record, I’ve gotten Will to drink healthier energy drinks. Yes, they do exist and there is a lot on the internet for healthy energy drinks made without caffeine and stuff we can’t even pronounce. That is a story for another day.


Building a "Green" Love Nest

Searching for the perfect "green" mattress can take weeks. Join Valerie Barber as she scopes them out. Pictured TempurPedicBuying a bed is worse than buying a house or a car. I’ve spent weeks and weeks looking, trying, researching, thinking and dreaming about beds. If we never have to buy a bed again, it will be too soon. Our innerspring, pillow top mattress is 10+ years old. Here are some of the things Will and I decided were important to us in buying a bed: no pressure points and better circulation.

We are side sleepers and we believe that part of Will’s tingling problems have to do with poor circulation. We toss and turn all night, wake up with stiff necks and Will snores because “the only comfortable position is on my back”. I can be on one side for 5 minutes then have to turn because of the pressure points on my hips. It hurts and it’s uncomfortable. So we started our search for a new mattress.


Our Journey to Better Living

After countless hours of watching documentaries such as Super Size Me, Unacceptable Levels, Years of Living Dangerously and others, my husband, Will and I have decided that living healthier for ourselves and the environment is now. This is our journey…
