Ten Ways to Become More Eco-savvy
From bottles to fabric, everything has a secondary use. Before throwing those egg cartons and cereal boxes out, think about how you can use them around the house. Cereal boxes can be transformed into magazine holders. Egg cartons make great ink wells for paint. Think outside the box and look online for ideas on how to re-purpose everyday household objects.
Evaluate what your household needs and focus on buying fewer things to do the same job. Bring your own reusable bags to the store, and return them to your car or bike basket once you’ve put away your items.
Make your own cleaning solutions and body products. This can be a fun activity to do alone or with children. There are thousands of different recipes for soaps, candles, and cleaning products available on the web.
Go Back To The Basics
Be earthy. Decorate for holidays and special occasions all year round with natural sticks, leaves, stones and flowers that you find in the park or the neighborhood.
Bring your own mug to the local coffee shop, work, or school.
Have some splendor in the grass
Enjoy nature. Exercise by taking a walk or run in your local park or trail. Have a picnic and enjoy natural light, just don’t forget to wear sunscreen.
