Happy Earth Day!
Today I am wearing my "My White T Is Green" shirt...so cute and made of organic cotton. I wish I could take a pic but I am in the midst of standardized testing with the kiddos right now. HAHAHAHA!
So in honor of Earth Day, what are you doing to celebrate/ save our Earth?
Brett and I have become very good at recycling and trying to reduce our waste. We try to turn off lights, keep the heat/ air set low, use reusable grocery bags, and unplug unused appliances but we have been thinking about doing more. Two "goals" or rather just things I would like to try this summer are composting and a rain barrel. We looked at rain barrels at the hardware store last weekend. WOW! $130! Brett thinks he could make one, so we will see. For those of you who are unfamiliar, they are big barrels that catch water from your down spouts. Your hose hooks to the barrel and you use that water to for your grass, garden, etc. rather than using "new" water. As for the composte, I really want to try this, but the "girly" part of me is worried about the smell. Just being honest.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Earth Day and does somethign a little extra today. Here's a present for you all...a free reusable grocery bag. Just click here and print the coupon, then head to Walgreen's. Stay Green!
