Today was earth day and it’s also my mom’s birthday. A day to take green action for mother earth and to notice what we do and can improve upon to lead a greener lifestyle.
One thing I did recently which I consider green is to get a stroller. How is this green? I have found since having a baby I am driving way more than I used to and it was bothering me especially when it was somewhere close that i used to walk to, but now felt it was too far to walk if i was carrying a car seat. I do walk around the neighborhood with Iris in a carrier and she loves it, but for getting groceries etc. i thought a stroller would be handy to have. Now, i can stroll to many places in my neighborhood and I have already noticed a decrease in my driving and an increase in my walking again!
It’s spring time and many of us love to spring clean once it get’s warm enough. me included! Be sure to check out my post about a DIY citrus cleaner I posted on earth day in 2013, that is oh so easy and very cheap to make!
Ingredients to have on hand for DIY spring cleaning include:
- Baking Soda
- Washing soda
- lemon juice
- liquid castille soap
- essential oils (optional)
