Thanks, Alana! Great tips. Especially the five organic foods to start with.

Thanks for linking to the pesticide-ridden food list. Just yesterday I was reviewing a list like that and vowing to buy more carefully and organically those most, well, poisoned!

We've got to use the power of our pocketbooks (does anyone use that term anymore? Pocketbooks?) or let's say the power of our purses to help bring about change. Buying organic is a practical way to do so.

Thanks so much for the link to my contest. I've totally fallen in love with dropps detergent. I am thrilled with the quality and of course very happy to be helping the environment.

We've switched almost all of our light bulbs with CFL bulbs. The only ones we haven't switched are the bathroom and hall lights. The hall isn't switched because I need immediate bright light in the middle of the night most nights because of the baby and the bathroom because of putting makeup on.

I keep forgetting to pick up the CleanWell hand sanitizer. I keep reading about it and all the other products. Hubby did the shopping last time and I forgot to tell him to get it...can't wait to try it out.

Thanks for the info on the food! GREAT blog you got here! :)
