Over the last month I have added 2 new additions to my quest to lead a more eco-friendly, sustainable existence. Even when you think you have done everything you possibly can, you can always find more to do! First up, and by reader request, is my 15 year old cat’s new outdoor litter box:
The second addition to my arsenal is a “new to me” reel push lawn mower that I bought from a new friend here in Taos for $25. Take a look:
As you can see, it’s one of those lawnmowers that just have a blade that spins as you push it around; no gasoline or oil needed! Granted, if I had a gigantic lawn full of lush grass I would probably have bought an electric mower (a traditional gas powered lawn mower produces as much air pollution as 43 new cars each being driven 12,000 miles) to do the hard work, but with a lawn that looks like this:
I don’t really need more than my new push mower, now do I? Overall, I am pretty happy with my two purchases. I think both of them combined cost a total of $45, and believe they are definitely worth the money for their return in eco-friendliness. On to find the next thing I can do! What do you think?
