Happy Earth Day!
Hoping today and every day you take action to protect Earth. Small things like unplugging electronics when not in use, or recycling make a big difference when we all do it. Preserving Mother Earth for the next generations is everyone’s responsibility.
One of the things I do is to think every single purchase I make and think of the product cycle and I ask myself these questions:
1. How long will I be able to use this product?
2. What will happen to this product when I no longer need it? Can I resell it, donate it, recycle it or do I have to trash it?
3. How is this product packed/wrapped? How can I dispose or recycle the packing material?
And it is much easier to make purchasing decisions when I only try to buy products that I can use for long run, or they can be reused after I’m done. I also use many packing materials for various crafts or think of alternative uses for them. I buy jelly in pretty glass jars that can be used to storage small craft supplies – or I wash food cans and make containers for pencils or plant flowers in painted cans.
What are some of your small ways you save the Earth every day?
