HAPPPY EARTH DAY!

Today is Earth Day!  I have memories of this day going back to 4th grade when we had a whole school day of activities and games to educate children about the environment.  I have always loved nature.  I was that girl who collected bugs in the woods and frogs in the pond, and now I am working at the State’s Department of the Environment.

What do you do to protect the planet???  A few things off the top of my head that are really easy for everyone to follow are…

  • support local operations from farmers markets to main street stores.
  • plant your own garden – this saves money too!
  • recycle!
  • buy a lunch box instead of paper bags
  • use tupperware over plastic baggies
  • cool your home with fresh air over AC
  • put on a sweater and turn your thermostat down in the winter
  • unplug appliances – I need to work on this one
  • bring your own bags to the grocery store

Just a few changes to make the world a cleaner, safer place for years to come.

Now onto some green oats!

  • almond extract
  • cinnamon
  • 1 scoop Amazing Grass Superfood

REDUCE, RESUSE, RECYCLE!

Have a super GREEN day!
