I feel a bit of a hypocrite writing this post because, with the amount of washing and drying that goes on in the Locket household, I probably have an appalling carbon-footprint.
And I have never really seen myself as a good recycler of general household items - even if I do love recycling the childrens' clothes (and pockets!) - hence my blog name.
My next door neighbour re-christened me "Lucy Landfill - Doesn't Recycle" a year or so ago because we had another Skip outside our house for broken furniture, and hoarded rubbish.
But there is something I can do tonight which might help a bit.
And everyone can do it too.
WWF are promoting Earth Hour tonight at 8.30pm where we are all encouraged to switch our electricity off for an hour.
It's a small thing to do but if they get the billion supporters they are hoping for it could help to make a big change.
Meanwhile I need to address my un-green habits on a day-to-day basis!
P.S. For local bloggy peeps there is something rather fabulous happening tomorrow - Helen is holding her
Give your family a treat and pop over to Durham and visit her - I promise you it will be worth it! (and the weather is meant to be better tomorrow too!!!)
