Oil Spills and You

May 10, 2010 at 2:02 pm Leave a comment

It’s difficult to read the newspaper sometimes, especially when you’re reading about the devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s not uncommon for people of all stages of eco-friendliness to feel utterly hopeless. However, we at EnAct remain optimistic, for we know that individual actions do add up in the long run to result in positive changes. A blog posting from the Nature Conservancy gives a few tips on what you can do to help out, as does The Daily Green. Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report adds some humor to a very unamusing catastrophe in this video.

This summer, I’m going to try to use as few petroleum products and as little oil as possible. I’m going to have to do some extensive research about every-day household items so that I purchase items that aren’t made using petroleum, such as certain floss brands! Every little bit helps.

As you can see,  my kitchen is microscopic. That’s not going to stop  my new cookbook and I from whipping up delicious meals all summer long using produce and meats from the Dane County Farmer’s Market! This will aid me in using less oil for the summer.

Do you have any summer eco-goals? Feel free to call us with your ideas, or if you need some!

Have fun,

Melissa
