Happy Earth Day!

What did you do to care for the Earth today?

I was reminded of many things that we can all do to help keep the Earth we have.

Turning off lights in rooms we are not in.
Using cloth products instead of paper (paper towels, tissues, diapers, wipes, etc).
Hanging clothes out to dry instead of using a dryer.
Combine small trips out of the house into one big trip.

I am not huge into being "green" but I do think we all need to do our part.  Whether it is using a towel instead of a paper towel, cloth diapering, or simply just turning out the lights, it all does something good for the environment. 

Personally we cloth diaper and try to use cloth wipes as much as possible.  When we do use disposable diapers we now use Seventh Generation diapers.  We are also trying to switch over to using cloth "paper" towels.  In the warmer, summer months we tend to dry our cloth diapers outdoors.  If we had an actual clothesline (which we are not allowed to have in our subdivision, terrible if you ask me), we would love to dry more of our clothes outdoors.

We do the best we can.  When we cleaned out our garage this weekend we recycled a full load of plastic (bottles and bags), cardboard and paper. 

So what do you do to help preserve the Earth?

  1. I've made cloth toilet paper. It's great. (Don't let my kids know I talked about this.)
