Earth Day

Happy Earth Day, green peeps!

One of my resolutions this year was to be more environmentally conscience. We already use cloth diapers, cloth napkins, and eco-friendly detergent but I wanted to do more. The goals have kind of fallen by the wayside because things have been hectic around here. But, today’s holiday has renewed my fervor!

There are a ton of things you can do to help reduce your carbon footprint. Here’s what I did:


Instead of using pointless energy to dry my clothes, I hung up all of my laundry outside (even my socks and unmentionables!)

I turned off all the lights in the house and opened up the shades and curtains to work by sunlight.

And even Hermione go in on the Earth Day action! Her babysitter (my aunt) lives only a few blocks away, so we commuted by stroller today!



Did you do anything to help the environment today? Got any good tips?
