You Might be an Eco Chick If….


….it breaks your heart when you see people fill their grocery carts with pounds of cheap hamburger, Cheetos and soda and you just want to sneak your bag of organic apples into their sack when they’re not looking.

….you secretly laugh at the huge SUV drivers when you’re filling up at the gas station. Then feel guilty because you too are filling up at the gas station.

….you listen for the recycling truck on pick up day and then watch to make sure they put all your various sorted bags in the right sections of the truck.
