What does your carbon footprint look like?

I woke in a cold sweat about 3 am this morning. I was having a nightmare that my house had been part of a new are designated for a dump site and if I wanted to continue to live here I would have to deal with the garage! Wow, it was only a dream but one that started my mind spinning out of control, perhaps it was because I was going to Lincoln Log Cabin this morning (Saturday) to take pictures and witness the true beauty of fall or maybe it was because I know we need to recycle more so Sadie can still live on this planet when she is my age. Here are some of the things I am trying to do to improve the lifespan of our planet:

1. No more buying cases of bottled water!

2. Recycle aluminum cans.

3. Using rags to clean up messes instead of paper towels.

4. Potty training Sadie (no more diapers).

5. Using saved rain water to water my plants.

OK so my list is a short one, due in part to the fact that recycling is non-existent in Mattoon, Illinois. I wish I could sort all my plastics, glass and card boards but there is not a company here that will haul it away and no place to take it that is within reasonable distance. If we all did just a little bit, the planet might last a little longer!
