Happy Earth Day 2009!
We hope you're having a warm
and sunny Earth Day!
We hope you are having some
'green' success in our green year.
We love the daily suggestions
from the 'green calendar'.
Three things we have been
some success with are:
1. Using reusable cloth bags at the store.
We have found thatsome stores (not Walmart)
give a 5-10 cent refund for each bag.
Put them in between the front seats where
you unbuckle your seat belt, then you
see them as you get out.
2. Using cloth napkins for the day or
several days instead of paper napkins
or paper towels has really worked well
for us. Sam's sells great white restaurant
napkins, maybe we could get
some and split them.
3. Using less plastic water bottles.
Using filtered water and
refillable's definitely helps the
pocketbook as well as the earth!
We'd love to hear of anything that
is working well at your houses.
Have a wonderful green day and remember,
EVERYDAY IS EARTH DAY!
