Happy Earth day!

Hi everyone. I just wanted to say Happy Earth Day and give you some tips to go green! These tips are easy to follow and make a big difference!

  • Turn off your water while brushing your teeth! This saves gallons of fresh water!
  • Try to take showers that are 5-10 minutes long, or you can just turn off the water while shampooing and conditioning your hair.
  • When using paper use the front and back side!
  • Choose to buy recycled toilet paper.
  • When choosing house cleaners look to see if its Eco-friendly.
  • Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!!!
  • Choose natural deodorant
  • Eco-friendly packaging does wonders for the environment.
  • Try biodegradable soap!'
  • If you love a certain face wash buy it in the biggest size if you know you'll use it. This way the bottle will be made of less plastic.
  • Check to see if your products are cruelty-free (not being tested on animals.)
  • Choose organic tampons, or make sure you recycle your tampon box.
  • Look for organic make-up such as Physicians Formula.
  • Use a towel more than once.
  • Wash clothes in cold water. Ninety percent of energy from the washer goes in to heating the water.
