i want to learn more din.

-sa house we use cfl
-nagbubukas lang kami ng  lights pag 4pm onwards, minsan 5pm since malalaki naman windows sa bahay.
-pag hindi ginagamit, like yung tv, tinatanggal sa socket. hindi basta off lang.

gusto kong ipractice ngayon sa house ang pagsesegrate ng waste. magreresearch pa ko kung ano ba dapat ang magkakasama. and paano kung walang compost pit. pwede ba gumawa nun kahit konti lang yung space na may lupa.

gusto ko din bumili ng lagayan/basket, para dun lalagay pag nagpupunta sa palengke.

and nice idea yung laging may dalang reusable bag para sa unplanned purchases 'di na kelangan ng plastic.
When you're down to nothing, God is up to something.

2++ yrs na din kami sa "eco friendly lifestyle"  :)

nag start to sa PETA.. di naman po kami vegans pero super love kasi namin animals.. my Lola used to call our house "pet shop".. madami kasi ako animals dati.. ayun, naintindihan ko na yung advocacy ng PETA.. hanggang sa pag alaga kay Mother Earth. di naman ganun kahirap sa amin mag switch sa ganitong lifestyle since dati pa man, mas gusto talaga ni Mama ng simpleng pamumuhay. naks!  ;)

-recycle, reuse ---ito talaga nasusunod namin :D
-organic foods - madalang,  mahal eh! hehe
-conserve : water, energy
-segregate - my compost pit sa area namin ( project ng Ret Gen sa place namin )
-we use eco bags din sa grocery, palengke
-plants ( madami sa harap, likod ng bahay namin )
-di lahat ng appliance binibili namin ( kasi daming lumalabas na kung anik anik na appliance, di naman natin need..parang katamaran lang )
-di rin kami bumibili ng "palamuti" sa bahay.. we practice minimalism..ay taray! alam ko pang mayaman lang yan pero ginamit ko na din ;D ;D
-Organic Skincare ( dito talaga kami powerful. Haha ) parang 96% ng inaapply namin sa body eh natural or organic. pati pets namin naka organic soap din!  ;D ) yung natirang 4% napunta sa lip stain, toothpaste, perfume  :D :D
-share na lang kami ng sister ko sa gadgets kesa tig isa pa! techie yung bro ko,kaya my sarili siya. ganun talaga...lalake eh!  ;D
-biodegradable cleaners

basta may iba pa siguro di ko lang ma post lahat dito..once naman comitted ka na, lahat ng gusto mo gawin, gamitin, iniisip mo yung impact niya sa environment natin..
and happy ka na i-share or i-encourage ang ibang tao na mag green living din :D
little knowledge is DANGEROUS!!

tama! saka sa small things naman nagsstart yan. Like yung pag-iwas sa pagbili ng PET bottles or styro anything. Pag may party or dinner with guests, magtyagang maghugas ng pinggan. Wag na disposable and don't use dishwasher kasi magastos if konti lang load. :) And support sustainable fashion (haha plugging) ^_^

And I make my own Reed diffuser without using any harmful chemical like VOC.

Now I'm making my own reed diffuser without DPG in it.  Room smells fresh and clean without harming the environment yan ang motto ng product line ko. =)

wow! sana lahat ng tao magkaroon na ng contribution sa eco-friendly living. Honestly, your money won't do any help kapag nasira na ang mundo kaya ako kahit mahal I try na mga gamit namin puro organic kahit masakit sa bulsa tipid na lang sa iba.

tama ka sis! kaya kami nga ng husband ko kahit medyo pricey yung solar panels, yun ang uunahin namin kaysa sa ibang electronics, we really want to make use of our resources (money) wisely.

Another thing that we we're doing right now is recycling all plastic containers. Then, when we move to our new house, we will do composting... promise!

Yan din balak namin dati ni hubby when we had our house built. kaso the subd we are in doesn't want us to install solar panels. Sabi nila makidlat daw dito sa lugar namin si soral panels are not advisable. =(

Taga San Pedro sis. Mataas yung lugar kasi namin and open field siya walang gaanong puno since madami pang vacant lot  sa subd. namin.

While we were building this house nakikipag debate naman kami sa Landco about it kasi nga gusto naming magpalgay ng solar panel kahit maliit lang for hot water ba. Naku ayaw. kaines!

Ang nailusot ko lang isa which is  having a under ground water reserve sa may garden area ko.

ahhh... [textspeak!] nga itatanong ko yan sa supplier ko ng solar panels... but i dont think na ipapagbawal ng homeowners or subdivision kasi marami naman puno at mga mas mataas pang bahay kaysa sa amin. thanks sis sa input.
