|first flower on my tomato plants|
I am also now trying to limit the "packaging" that comes into the house - I have started making my own baguettes and bagels, we are growing our own herbs, strawberries and tomatoes (with hopes to add cucumbers and peppers in next year).
To help eliminate paper waste, I thought that I would try out epost - a service offered by Canada Post. What a great way to eliminate unwanted paper (less envelopes, less bills printed and the inserts that often come with them too!)

I gathered my bills and opened up the epost website. Setting up an account was really quick and took me less than a minute to complete

I was only able to add a few of my bills - Rogers, property tax and water and sewer. Unfortunately, most of the bills we have are not offered on epost yet - so I would hope that they would get those added in soon (Bell Canada, Enbridge etc). Once I chose my "mailers" for Rogers and my bank of choice, I set them up and got everything authorized. Something I wasn't aware of - certain companies are on there and you can add your pay statement to epost - I thought that was pretty neat!
Be sure to check out my Google + album for more pictures - and leave me a comment telling me if you have used epost before, and if you strive to be green!
