Oprah and "Going Green"

Did anyone else see Oprahs recent show about going green?

It was so neat to see some real hard-core facts making it onto a nationally broadcast TV show.

Im very interested in composting - I think I may take this up when we move to the new house! If Julia Roberts can do it - we all can :) anyone do it now? share! share!

Here is a RECAP of issues covered if you missed the show (they even touched on products to avoid in your skin care products! hooray! and my favorite - Aubrey Organics - was mentioned)

I'm a little surprised that you'd be watching Oprah at all given all her "New Spirituality" religion ideas. What do you think about all that?

And I've TOTALLY been thinking about composting. I've done a little research here and there and I'm not sure I can pull it off, but I'm seriously interested. I was thinking about starting a veggie garden with the kids next year.

I dont watch Oprah normally but I saw a commercial for her Green show so I DVR'd it :). I knew she was very new-agey with her religion/spirituality....I still appreciate that she occasionally helps to get radical ideas out (like about autism and going green).

Yes, I compost! You will be hooked when you start. Seeing how much you can save from being thrown in the garbage is unbelievable.

I want to start composting too... I'm thinking just kitchen scraps to start with - we have tons because we eat so much fresh produce. My aunt (wonderful gardener) did warn me that egg shells absolutely don't break down as quickly as all other kitchen scraps and it can be very annoying to pick them out when you use the compost.
