Happy Earth Day!

There are many things you can do to protect our planet. They can be simple and small!

Such as:

- unplug electronics when not using them
- turn the light out when you leave the room
- turn the water off while brushing your teeth
- use a reusable coffee sleeve instead of the cardboard ones
- take in your own coffee mug when getting coffee (Starbucks even offers 10% off, if you do that!)
- use a reusable tote bag when shopping
- recycle
- don't throw away batteries (dispose of them properly)
- turn your thermostat to a higher degree during the summer
- buy a filter and something like a SIGG bottle instead of always using bottles
- use cold water when doing laundry
- using the dishwasher actually uses less water than washing and rinsing them by hand
- if you have a backyard, think of using a clothesline instead of a clothes dryer
- use every single page in a notebook

Tell me some ways that you are protecting our beautiful planet! :)

Well we dont unplug every appliance but we have bought those new power saver stripes that cut off power to the appliances completely when the power to it is off.

Saw Doris last night and thought of you!
