Take Five: Changes to help mother earth

It’s Friday already? May is always such a busy month. We’ve got planting, longer days, end of school activities, and baseball. The weeks seem to go by so quickly. My boys are counting down the days until summer vacation and I’m counting down the days until I don’t have to help with homework or pack lunches.

Spring was long overdue this year and it really made me appreciate how important it is for us to start taking better care of our planet NOW. Every little change adds up and makes a difference. We started a compost bin outside and have been making an effort to reduce the amount of waste our household creates. Here are five small changes we have made recently. I am linking all of these products to online retailers, but obviously it would be better if you can purchase them locally. Have a great weekend!

This compost bin looks great in your kitchen and is easy to clean.

This floss is biodegradable and the glass bottle can be refilled over and over again.

Mesh produce bags are so easy to use. The hard part is remembering to take them with you to the store.

Blueland is a new company that makes three household cleaners in tablet form. They also sell reusable spray bottles. You just drop in a tablet and add water. Brillant!

I started making almond milk at home to cut down on all of those bulky cartons and these glass bottles are perfect for storing it in the fridge.
