I moved this past weekend. Into an apartment. And after several days of lugging boxes up and down stairs, unpacking box upon box of books, selecting IKEA furniture, building IKEA furniture, I am ready to start shaping my new life in this wonderful apartment. My boyfriend and I had already agreed that we wanted to be living as eco-friendly as possible. And while we ideally want to be living in a house where we can recycle a million different ways and compost in the backyard, we aren’t there yet.
The night after we moved in, we ran over to the MOMs in Jessup to get the essentials we were missing. Two hours later we walked out with way more than we had planned but deliriously happy about our bags of goodies. The next day we stopped by Might Healthy Pet where we got eco-friendly toys and treats for my little Jack Russell Terrier named Stella. I’m working on getting her on more natural dog food but she has a very sensitive system and can have “issues” when I change anything up, even a little bit. Any ideas?
So how do we live as the “eco-warriors” we strive to be while being apartment dwellers? How do all of you handle supporting the environment in your various living situations?
