What is the purpose of this blog?!

At the start of this New Year (2007) I made several resolutions.  One of those resolutions was to reduce my own consumerism.  This was actually a part of a resolution to engage in and promote behavior that demonstrates consideration for environmental and social issues.  Here you will find some of the trials and tribulations related to that as well as some tips for your own “greening”.  On a more personal and lighthearted side, I also hope to write about some of my culinary experiments and experiences.
