How extreme are your ecological goals?


Recently I was at a soccer game (kids) and two of the moms behind me were talking about their purchasing habits and natural resources. They were discussing no longer buying canned goods because of the use of natural resources. Instead they were making large batches of things like beans and then freezing them in can sized increments. That conversation seemed a little extreme to me and then I realized that I do the same thing though I did not label it as they did.... So how extreme are your ecological goals? Do you have ideas that might help others conserve energy? Resources? save Money?

    You can freeze in canning jars too. Be sure to leave at least an inch and half for expansion. I have a friend who makes soup and freezes it this way. Her family loves her homemade soups from her garden.

    With increasing pressure of not using plastic... what containers do you use to freeze your food?

    while gardening is somewhat radical if you have never gardened... what other ideas might you consider a radical change to approaching ecology?
