Clean up and Green up... WooHoo!!!!
Lotus aka Sarcastic Mom is trying to clean up her part of the world.
Here in Australia, We have the annual Clean up Australia Day which is huge.
The similarities with these two projects are also huge. Clean up Australia Day was the brainchild of one person. Ian Kiernan. Project Restore Beauty to Nature is the brainchild of one woman Lotus Carroll
I live a 'green lifestyle' I often forget that how I live here in my little part of the world is not actually considered normal.. and the day to day stuff that I do as part of my everyday routine would actually be considered a bit strange..
So today I have just included some photos as bit of a starter.. I would like to write a bit more about how I live and I would like to share some of the stuff that I take for granted. Simple things like using this bright yellow container in the sink when I wash the dishes.. 1. It uses heaps less water and 2. I can then tip the water onto thwe garden..
this photo is just for fun...
I have an organic garden. this is old horse poo. I am soaking this overnight because the manure is old and very dry.I will use this as a mulch and soil conditioner in the garden tomorrow. If I put it in the garden dry.. It would either rob the garden soil of precious moisture or it would just blow away..
I love this detergent. I put all my dishwater on my garden. this stuff hasn't got any of the nasties in it that will bugger up the ph balance of my soil.. and it is cheap.. and lasts for ages.. etc etc. and it only smells a bit lemony..
Eat more greens Yay...
When I build a new garden space, my first thoughts are for the frogs and lizards that I want to be in the garden with me. so I always try to create a habitat for them as well..
This will do for now. I will add to this later.. please check out Lotus post. and if you click here :) :) :0 you can check out what all the other bloggers have been doing..
cheers Kim and Thankyou xxxx
