Happy Earth Day!

Here are some ways to love our Mother Earth!

In addition to reusing egg cartons, try fruit peels! So cute!

Shop 2nd hand!

Use yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores as a shopping haven to redecorate your house. You don't have to pay loads to have a stylish pad!

Unplug electrical appliances when not in use. Did you know that power is still consumed when your electronics are plugged in even though they are turned off?

Line dry your clothes instead of using the dryer! We've hung up a line at our workplace to dry the water table aprons, instead of using the dryer, especially now that the weather is so nice and warm!

Take public transportation or ride a bicycle if possible! Leave your car at home!

Spend your money on companies and products that work towards sustainability.

And that is also why I've taken the pledge. Please do it today too!

Do you have good ideas to go green?
