Six Steps and a Long Term Goal

As I promised here, I am outlining today what I plan to do in response to Lotus' challenge to contribute to the cleaning up of the planet (or at least my tiny part of it).
  1. I will keep a trash bag and gloves in my car so I never have an excuse to not pick up trash when I see it.
  2. I will walk a lap around the track after my run in the morning and pick up all the trash I see.
  3. I will continue buying my fruits and vegetables from local farmers at my Farmer's Market.
  4. I will make a conscious effort to buy other grocery items (such as meat and dairy) from within a 100 mile radius of where I live.
  5. I will use those cool mesh bags for my produce that I saw here.
  6. Once a month, I will take the boys to the park/beach/hiking and pick up trash while they play.
  7. I have a long term goal to grow a vegetable garden so I can be somewhat self-sustaining but it may have to wait for a different yard.
I think that's a good start, right?
