30 Thursday: What Could You Do Without?


It's been a while since we've had a 30 Thursday, so I'll remind everyone what it's about. I post a topic or question and the first 30 people to reply in a comment can put an additional entry in any current giveaway I am hosting.

Today I am thinking of things that I could do without. What are things I can give up that will make the earth a little bit of a better place? A big thing that comes to mind is my SUV. I love my Acura MDX, but it is much more car than I need. I have one child and never take road trips. It's a pretty big thing to "get rid of" and a little complicated what with loans and all, but I'm working on it. I plan on replacing it with a Mini Cooper Clubman. Maybe I can do it within 6 months, or maybe it will take over a year- but I'm going to do it. In the meantime, I'll try to walk more (unfortunately Houston suburbs make this near impossible) and I'll give up something small for now.

Plastic cups. Is it really that much of an inconvenience to wash glasses after a party or large family gathering? Nope. So goodbye plastic cups, and Styrofoam for that matter. I'm not buying them ever again. It's a small thing, true. But I am hopeful that one day these small things will add up to make a big difference.

Tell me something you are willing to give up- big or small! And don't forget to go to the Weleda giveaway and post a comment for your extra entry! (Just put 30 Thursday and your email address in the giveaway comment.)

I could give up the extra laundry booster I toss in with the detergent since I also use a spray stain remover!
