DD1 had a birthday a couple of weeks ago. Family came over and we had a great time. Now it's time for the "friends" birthday. Traditionally, I would hand write the invitation and then have DD1 deliver them at school, or I would pop them in mail.
This year, in light of us trying to green our lifestyle, I am going to send out electronic invitations for her birthday party. I don't find them as socially acceptable for this kind of thing, but I am hoping that the invitees will understand the reasons behind it.
The inspiration for this blog came after reading Vanessa Farquharson's book, Sleeping Naked is Green, and wondering if her new eco-lifestyle was really applicable to a family of 5 that was already fairly environmentally friendly. At the urging of a friend, I took on the challenge of trying to improve my family's "green-ness", using the book as a template. This blog will record our attempts to improve our environmental foot-print one small change at a time.
