Love the Earth Everyday!

Bring out your earthy self this Earth Day! Here are a few tips that will show Mother Earth the love she deserves—not just today, but all year long!

 

Bring Your Own Bags

Not only are supermarket bags bad for the environment, there’s also a pain to carry. Cloth bags are the best. I always leave mine in the car, so I never forget them.

 

Shop Local

Find a farmers market near you and support your local producers. Locally grown food just tastes better—it’s a fact.

 

Turn Off the Water

You won’t believe how much you waste by letting it run while you brush your teeth! This simple step goes a long way to saving water.

 

Dig in the Dirt

Plant a tree or an herb garden. Your kids will love this hands-on activity, and you can never have enough basil, rosemary and cilantro. It grows like crazy!

 

Repurpose Glass

My used candles and jars are now makeup or change holders.

 

Lights Out

Encourage your kids to turn off lights and conserve energy (and your electric bill).

 

Going green is easier than you think! Good luck and happy Earth Day!
