Just One?

                                                                 

  This isn’t talking about a brand of multi-vitamins, but about sticking to making do with just one glass a day for beverages.

   In her book, Eco-Friendly Families, Helen Coronato encourages families to limit their glass usage to just one per day. Not only does it save on extra items to wash, but utilizes less water, and minimizes clutter.

     The original post appeared on the Apartment ReNest website, and it sparked me to think about how many glasss I go through in an average day. The count came to about six[!], of all shapes and sizes, many used only  for a sip or two, then abandoned somewhere in the apartment.

       This is a small, but significant habit with potential for big changes in greening one’s   personal lifestyle. I’m also going to take her suggetion of putting a clothespin with my name on the glass edge  so everyone at home will know it’s mine. Is anyone else out there ready to reduce to ” just one?”
