~Summer Blog Challenge~ Eco Friendly
July 1--Talk about something eco friendly that you already do.
Recycle, Reduce, Reuse~ My take on the 3 Rs.
Recycle. I wish I could give a list of several things I do to be Eco-Friendly, but I really can't think of many. Where we live recycling isn't mandatory or easy to access, so we just don't do it.
Reduce.We are attempting to make a switch to filtered water bottles and pitchers and cut back on our bottled waters. Our Soda Stream unit is another way we are cutting back on our waste. I'm working on cooking from scratch more often to help lessen the amount of trash that comes from our home.
Reuse. Now reuse, on the other hand is something I can really get in to. I'm all for finding new uses for product containers, and anything else I find that I can reuse. I save butter, sour cream, and other containers to pack my husband's lunches in. I love to make crafts with previously used items. I love large containers from things I've purchased at Sam's Club, these have a variety of uses! I've also recently been introduced to reusable sandwich bags, so those are helping as well.
Well, my list is short, but I continue to try to find new ways to work the green thing into our life!
