Happy New Year everyone! I’ve been a bit MIA with all the crazy weather, canceled schooldays, and general household-type-busy-minutia (with a few unexpected mini-crises thrown in).
To kick things off as I get back in the routine of posting regularly, I thought I’d share a few thoughts on some of the most significant things you can do to help green things up this year. Most of these ideas not only save you money, but they also ensure you have a less toxic home, an increased amount of self-sufficiency, and are actively engaged in planetary stewardship through sustainable efforts.
All of which should make for a pretty rewarding 2014!

Hello and welcome to Do It Now + Green. Somehow you found yourself here (which is awesome!), and you’ve probably got good reason for landing in this spot.
Maybe you’re worried about money, or your food choices. Maybe you dream of casting off your sub/urban lifestyle and running away to the wilds of Wisconsin to start your own mini farm. Maybe you want to revamp your living environment or try something totally radical… like geothermal heating and cooling, hydroponics in your basement, homemade biodiesel fuel, backyard chickens, and the like. Or maybe you’re just sick of the clutter and eager to save some green while going more green. (Win-win, right?)
If so, this blog is for you. It’s all about diving in, trying a few things, and seeing what you think. What works for you? What’s sustainable for you? How do you choose to be responsible to others? What resonates for you or feels like that “ah ha” moment you’ve been waiting for? (And what holds you back?)
