Lynne suggested I take this Eco Quiz on Practically Green to see where I’m at with this whole greening up thing. I thought ok, this could be interesting, I’m going to fail miserably. Lynne said she was surprised she only got a 6 out of 10 the 1st time she took it. (I should mention she has since progressed to a solid 9) Well I was shocked that I got as high as a 3!!! Yep, I was quite pleased with my 3 which rated me as “Kinda Sorta Green”. 🙂
Mind you I got most of my points with very little effort, mostly because I built my house 2 years ago after the standards had improved, I went all out with the insulation and of course opted for energy efficient appliances, windows etc.
I also earned points for recycling but since it’s mandatory to sort waste, compost and recycling on PEI, I can’t really take the credit for that one either. Besides those things the only area I got points in which were actually in my control was water conservation. I even got a Gold Water Badge! I’m very proud of my 3 despite the fact it was a complete fluke. Still, I think it’s a good start!
