Today is Earth Day! Don't forget about our Earth Day Giveaway here. Enter for a chance to win a basket of non-toxic cleaners from Shaklee. You can also leave me a comment on this post for a second chance to win! Just tell me what your Earth Day Resolution is, and I'll pick 2 winners! For this Earth Day, we are planning on going to some events geared toward the children here in town, the weather is beautiful, and it should be fabulous! As a present to the Earth, we bought a reel mower. It does not use gas, and will never break down! My hubby was so excited, he went out to try it at 10pm! Here are some ideas for gifts to the Earth this earth day:
Switch to non-toxic cleaners
Buy micro-fiber cloths instead of paper towels
Open your windows and turn of the heating/cooling system
Park your car, and walk today
Read a book to your kids about recycling
Start recycling
Make a meal from only local or all organic foods
Bring Your own Bag
Plant a garden
The list could go on and on, get to enjoying your Earth!

This Earth Day our plan is to clean up the trash in our neighborhood. If the weather doesn't permit, we plan on doing it another day.

My Earth Day resolution is is to make 4 more canvas tote bags and stash them in the car so I'm more likely to have them on hand at the grocery store.

Oh Gee, emerzim read my mind. I have some mesh bags to use for grocery shopping, but I never remember to get them back in the car.

I just hung them on the door handle and will take them out next time I leave. I'll charge Eldest Granddaughter with the job of reminding me to use them when I'm at the store!

Our short-term goal is to leave the car in the garage this week.

Our long-term goal is to really cut-down on the take-out. Bad for us...bad for the environment.

Use reusable bags EVERYTIME at the store. We use it mostly just not everytime.

I'm going to start buying from the local farmer's market (I visited today for the first time)... And use my bags not just at the grocery store...

I remember visiting my grandmother as a child and using her push mower as if it were a toy. She never had an electric mower till the day she died, she pushed her mower over the lawn, planted her own vegetables and made coffee in an old tin pot over a coal fire at the end of the night.

We can learn a lot from our elders.
