I want to say that the environmentally-friendly practices in my daily life are solely for mother earth, but they also make my life easier. Carpooling to work with John began as a necessity, but I enjoy his company on the days we ride together. We switched to the compact florescent light bulbs a while ago, and they last so much longer than regular light bulbs. It is nice to change light bulbs less often. I switched to reusable grocery bags, and now the plastic bags are no longer taking over my kitchen. San Antonio makes it really easy to recycle, so we do.
