earthday2005Today is Earth Day!

Here at Casa de Barclay we regularly recycle and compost and avoid buying things individually packaged. I wash out our baggies as often as I can for reuse.

Living in the desert also means water conservation: turning off the water when brushing teeth, only running full laundry and dish loads, reusing water where possible, etc.

We set our A/C at 82 because, believe me, when it’s 100+ outside that feels heavenly. We line dry our clothes. If we aren’t using it, it’s off (and usually unplugged).
