From an early age, Amy's mother taught her about living green. She grew up reusing and recycling just about everything in our household, from clothing to blankets to water containers. They hung their laundry out back to dry and raised our own chickens and enjoyed their fresh eggs. Everything that could be used again was put back in rotation, nothing was ever wasted.
