Happy Earth Day, I am devoting this post to all things that are earth-friendly. In the last 5 years, I have made changes in my daily life that I believe are contributing to helping our Earth. I thought I'd share those with you today.
The change that has made the best impact on my life is reusable bags. I got mine from Green Kits and they hold tons! I can go to the store and by a weeks' worth of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for my husband and I (about $200) and carry everything by myself in one trip! This may not sound like a big deal but I live in a condo with a parking garage so making three or four trips takes time and effort. They aren't the most attractive but I they hold a lot and do their job.
Another area that I have changed is my light bulbs. I replaced our lights with CFL bulbs and to be honest, I have had two bulbs burn out since I changed these between the two different places we lived. They last way longer and the lighting isn't so yellow, as with traditional bulbs.
Some other ways I have changed is using Green Cleaners. I think this is great to not have toxins and heavy cleaning scents, especially if you have pets and children. Some of my faves are:
This companies has products that cut the grease and clean really well. For Earth Day they are offering Free Shipping. Check it out!
J.R Watkins This spray is amazing--smells and cleans great.
Lastly, I think these lunch bags are fabulous--and they are of course eco-friendly. It's so much better to bring your lunch in these cute eco-friendly bags, rather than a plastic grocery bag that is no good for our Earth!
They come in a lot of really cute colors and prints.
I hope you all are doing things in your everyday lives that will help the planet. Happy Earth Day!!
