Earth Day 2014

Earth Day is tomorrow!!! We LOVE Earth Day in our house. This is the day that we can dedicate to appreciating the beauty of the Earth, and helping to maintain it. All year we work hard to reduce, reuse, and recycle so everyday is kind of like Earth Day, but April 22nd serves as a great reminder of the work that needs to be done.

 My family celebrates Earth Day by planting a tree, doing special earth day planting, and crafts, and picking up trash in our community. This is such a good learning lesson for my children. They love to take part in it, and share their experiences with their friends and family. They effects certainly rub off onto others, surely making a difference. That is what it is all about. If you are just beginning to recycle try doubling your recycling amount each week. You will love seeing the amount of trash you have reduce, and your recycling increase. What a difference you could make. Also, try to always pack trash free lunches for you and your children. The more little things you can do will make a huge impact on our planet over time.

See last years Earth Day post.

Thanks for visiting, Kayla

Homemade Chapstick

I have always wanted to make my own chapstick. Sometimes starting from scratch and making your own products can feel like a daunting task, but once you tackle it, it is usually way easier than you thought. That is how I felt about making chapstick. I found a recipe online, and of course changed the…
