Yes I thought that about #69 I'll have to suggest it next time my friends and I have a barbecue. 
Lavender Comment by Lavender on July 22, 2011 at 11:42pm
That was neat Chris, but some of them are questionable.. like using a microwave, and choosing compact florescent light bulbs while avoid mercury is a few numbers down :\  #69 sounds interesting though, I've never heard of that.

Merry meet all.

Someone I'm following posted this on twitter and I thought it would be welcome here. 100 ways to save the environment.

hello all! natural living is something i preach incessantly. my religion and way of life are one in the same. nether is something i just "practice". i live out in the boonies with wilderness all around hunting and gathering and using my natural surroundings for food, tools and medicine. i lived most of my life in the city but i have never been healthier and better feeling than i have since i moved out here. i am glad to be a part of this group and proud to say that i am something of an authority on the subject and would be more than happy to help any beginners or even vets of natural living. my home is actually open to the community and i invite guests to come and learn about various aspects of natural living for small donation or work trade. i can give you real hands on training in bushcraft, spirtualized hunting (not really sure what to call it, i just call it hunting the RIGHT way), foraging for wild woods, wild medicines, using found items/materials for tools etc. etc. remember all of this is part of how i live. it is not just a hobby. all of the information i give is tried and true, guaranteed. you wont learn this stuff from that amateur dave canterbury, how he got a school AND a discovery channel deal i will never know. anyway, please all, feel free to contact me with any questions. hopefully i can learn a few things from you guys too :)

Great idea for a group! I love learning about being more environmentally responsible and healthy 
Katie Comment by Katie on March 21, 2011 at 8:37am
Hello! This group looks great! My husband and I have been on a natural organic path for a while now. I went vegan about 2 1/2 months ago and stopped getting allergy shots and taking my medicine and the changes have been amazing. I haven't been able to breathe so well in more years than I can remember! I'm happy to have found a group for this =)

PS - Annie, I just started a discussion above with some helpful links. The first one addresses asthma!
EmJ Comment by EmJ on March 20, 2011 at 7:05am

Hi Annie, welcome!! My Dad's suffered with asthma for years as well and his specialist gave us some suggestions:


1) Get a hepa-filter for your furnace and vacuum to sift out even viruses!

2) Use unscented laundry detergent, dryer sheets (or better yet dry outside in the summer)

3) Use unscented beeswax or PURE soy candles only. Candles with low quality wax or fillers are as bad as running your lawn mower in your house for 1/2 and hour!

4) Wash bedding once a week, or get special dust- mite covers for your pillows. Dust mites can trigger attacks.

He sees an asthma specialist - maybe you could too? Hope this helps! Welcome to the group! :D

Annie Moore Comment by Annie Moore on March 18, 2011 at 5:10pm
This group is so perfect for me. I struggle a lot more recently. The doctor diagnosed me with asthma in the summer of last year and I have always had horrible hay fever! Three different types of inhalers, cetirizine hydrochloride and the doc puts me on giant steroids a lot for the old asthma. I'm quite sensitive so it's difficult to use incense or candles a lot, which completely sucks. 
It's interesting to look into where your food comes from, we have a lot of farms here in Cumbria (total understatement) so there's always someone selling lovely new potatoes or tomatoes.
Thanks for the invite! :)
