Eco-Favorites

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I would share some of my favorite ways (and products) to be a little more “green”.

  • R, R, R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) – need I say more?
  • Donating – I love when you can give something away that someone can use
  • BYOB… water bottle (at work, travel, etc)
  • BYOB… bags (reusable) for shopping
  • Save scraps – you know that extra white space when you print something out and only need half of the sheet of paper?  I have a basket of “scrap” paper from things I’ve printed and blank sides of envelopes from mail – they work great for quick notes or lists.
  • Books – go to your local library or visit used bookstores.  Books can be passed along to new owners/readers
  • Use leftover water – we save and use the leftover water from glasses at mealtime and in water bottles for watering plants
  • Light bulbs – we’ve switched over all of our bulbs in our house to LED or CFL bulbs.
  • Method – love the hand soaps, all-purpose cleaners and Steel for Real
  • Seventh Generation
  • Clorox Green Works
  • Mrs. Meyers
  • Avalon Organics
  • Dr. Bronner’s

What are some ideas or tips you have for being “green”?
