I’m always looking for ways to Go Green, and to encourage my family to do the same. Here’s a few things I came across that I thought were fun and easy to do!
-When going out for ice cream, get a cone rather than a bowl. That way you’re eating your utensils instead of throwing them away. So now you can use Going Green as an excuse to visit your local ice cream parlor.
-Whenever possible, don’t get a receipt. With on-line banking you can check on your account without wasting paper. A lot of stores nowadays ask if you want a receipt.
-Give old or outgrown clothes to friends, family, or charity. My 2nd hand store-shopoholic sister purges her closet a few times a year and I get her hand-me-downs. It’s like a shopping trip for me! And what doesn’t fit me goes to friends or other family members.
-Instead of watching TV, go on a nature walk. It might be hard to get off that couch, but it’s worth it and you’ll feel better in the end.
-GiftTree has many Gift Baskets and Wine Baskets with unique containers that can be used for storage after the contents of the gift are gone. I have used them to display towels, hold jewelry, store bills, etc.
What are some other fun and easy ways to Go Green? Please post a comment, your idea may be something others have not thought of.
