Celebrating our earth on Earth Day

Once I had children, I became aware of the fact that I had a responsibility to do my part in preserving our planet. Not for myself, but, for my children and for the generations to come. In recent years I have made some changes in my life and home in hope of doing my part.

Some of the things I have done, and feel we have done well are:

eliminating plastic bags and using re-usable bags when shopping

switching my light bulbs to energy efficient light bulbs

eliminating plastic water bottles from my home

eliminating toxic house cleaners, I use either vinegar and water or green cleaners

unplugging appliances when not in use

drying my clothes on the line whenever possible

separate my yard waste from the garbage

Things I would like to improve upon:

find a way to compost

turn down the thermostat

look for and purchase products made from recyclable material

recycle rain water for watering plants in the summertime

Please share your achievements in making our Earth Green!

Happy Earth Day
