ethical living

offthebeatenpath has caught the green bug. Ethical living seems to be so right for everyone. Where does one begin? For me, it starts with reducing the number of plastic bags I use. The bakery that I frequent normally uses one clear plastic bag for the hotdog I buy, and then puts it in another plastic bag carrier so that I can take it away. I now have the habit of skipping the plastic carrier bag. But the issue is normally not so simple. For example, is it more environmentally friendly to use disposable plates and utensils, or use conventional plates and utensils, but wash them with detergent and water? Anyway, see Guardian's own ethical living section for tips on how to live more ethically...
