Happy Earth Day!

Yes, every day should be Earth Day but today is that one special day of the year to recognize and act.  Think of it as a New Year's Resolution for the earth.  

On behalf of mother earth's new year I thought I'd compile a few easy resolutions to make a part of your daily habits.  

If any of these become routine we will be one step closer to making our planet a little greener and it might even save you a little money.
  1. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
  2. When you go to bed turn your thermostat down a few degrees
  3. Buy some reusable grocery bags and use instead of paper or plastic
  4. Recycle the newspaper, junk mail or magazines either with your garbage company or look for a recycling dumpster in your neighborhood
  5. Repurpose household items.  For some ideas click here to read an article I wrote for Gomestic.org awhile back.  If you like the article I'd appreciate it if you click I like it!
