Tag your it.........the green in my life

I was tagged awhile back by A Brunette Making it One Day at a Time to do a green blog but forgot all about until I read Smell The Coffee Lisa's blog today. [and I think I am finally caught up]

Looking at Lisa's post I see it was supposed to be seven things...opps. I have five, four from work and one from home... forgive my exhaustion.


Kimwipes have been around since I was in college 100 years ago. They say delicate but they are far from it. They are like sandpaper. If you have a cold DO NOT use them. Although a handy tissue size they are for spills, the roughness will remove your nose.



This signs shows where the eyewash station is in the lab. There are two in fact.  I had to use it once and was drenched to my waist.



 I guess it looks kinda yellow but it is green. Our lab has a million [and I do not exaggerate]  clipboards. We have to keep track of everything. This list is what the night shift is responsible for every shift...and it is the longest in the lab.



This roll of stickers is to place on blood products that .... you guessed it can't go in the fridge or cooler. Blood leaves the lab in coolers often and the nurses/docs want to put the platelets in there too. So we literally cover the product with these and hope they stay at room temperature. Believe it or not it doesn't alway work.. sigh



These plants are in my front bay window. In the background is a Snake plant and the foreground is a Thanksgiving cactus. They spend the summer outside and we mostly remember to bring them in before the frost. The cactus blooms beautifully like this every year despite the abuse it gets. Fun fact, the Snake plant is also called "mother in laws tongue" because you can't kill it...the cactus was given to me by my mil... interesting ...and my mil......she will be 95 years old this year!!

There you go, a bit of the green in my life.....what about yours??

As I am sitting in my office, the only thing I can see that is green is my fly-swatter. I can count 6 dead flies on my window sill that I haven't cleaned up yet.

I know.

Gross.

I have been trying to go green, but have not made it yet! I have started to eat a bit more organic, does that count??

Smooches,
Sassy Chica

Very cool - although all I can see now is my green door to the office.

We recycle, and I shop organic, but that's about it. Oh, and I have enough green bags that I don't have to get paper or plastic at the stores anymore!

We're not very green, i'm afraid although we try. The green in my life is my husband's eyes. :)

LOL at mother-in-law's-tongue! AG mentioned Green Bags; inOntario, there's a law that vendors have to charge 5 cents a bag, now I'm seeing 4x the bags! Hit 'em where it hurts, eh?
