On this Earth Day I thought I would share with you a few ways our family attempts to be ‘green’. In this last year we have made a lot of changes in this area and I am so glad we have. It seems that the ‘green’ thing is quite trendy but we have not made these changes to keep up with the Jones but to have a healthier family and to do our part to take care of the earth that God has blessed us with. I believe that we should be good stewards of what we are given, our planet included. We still have a long way to go but here is what we do:
Make our own laundry detergent
Make our own all purpose cleaner
Cloth diaper our Little One
Use re-usable baby wipes
Use a clothesline instead of our dryer
Grow some of our own vegetables in our organic garden
Buy organic produce for the most part.
We do our best to fix or re-purpose what we have instead of buying new
This year I hope we make more changes that will help us lessen our carbon footprint and make us a healthier family!
