Ha! I've been taking the day off for two weeks. Today will be no more lazy than usual. :)
So, my Christmas gift to my husband was a compost bin, and all the stuff needed to get started. I realise that this sounds like the most bizarre Christmas gift ever, and in some ways it is, but there is an explanation.
|It's more an orange gift than a green|
The real tipping point for this gift was my reading No Impact Man, in which the writer and his family determined to make no impact on the earth for one year, beginning with no throwing anything away. When I read that they managed in their apartment to compost, then I decided that we could, too. (Much, much more about No Impact Man to come.)
I got a much less earth-friendly Christmas gift: A couple of running skirts that were on sale. I'm still waiting for the nice postman to bring them to me, but there will be pictures! And I also got a copy of Sleeping Naked is Green, which I guess is an earth-friendly gift. I haven't begun reading it yet, because I'm working my way through the rather large stack of library books I currently have out.
A Happy Boxing Day, one and all!
