Happy Earth Day 2010!

Little visitors that stopped by today!

HAPPY EARTH DAY
FROM "LIFE ON FISHING CREEK"!

Thinking about it there are lots of things we can do to make our Earth a bit happier....AND sometimes it's the little things that can make a BIG difference...

  • Weather permitting ~ put our clothes on an outdoor line. Don't have one? Any railing will do ~ especially for comforters, towels, blankets...
  • Think about recycling! In some counties it's mandatory ~ if not you probably have a recycle center in your area to drop off recyclables....
  • Save all your crumbs (literally) from bread, toast, etc... for the birds ~ what a treat it would be for them!
  • Donate to charity! You may be surprised at what items in your household are just taking up "real estate" ~ and it's a great feeling knowing someone else may be able to use ~ re-use...
  • Only run your dishwasher when it's full...
  • Open up the windows ~ weather permitting
  • Turn the lights off ~ especially outdoor lighting that we tend to forget!
  • If you don't garden ( ex. vegetable) ~ then think small/ start small...there are all types of easy ways to grown tomatoes, and other vegetables that don't need a plot of land....
Of course the list is endless...and many of you have your own ideas to share ~ love to hear some that your family does to make our Earth a bit more "happy".....

I just got together many bags of kids' clothes to donate tomorrow! :) We try to live every day as Earth Day, but I do have one tip for your readers: buy Carrie's wonderful natural laundry soap! ;)

In fact, I'm off to do that now!

Thank you Heather! They are the sweetest little ducks that make their appearance ever so often.

Hi Teresa! I did the same thing last week ~ enough clothes to fill up one of our cars. The whole time I just keep thinking---where did all this "stuff" come from--didn't we just move and cleaned out before then!

This weekend I'll be doing the same thing- but this time more items in my studio area- that's getting a total make-over...

I know what you mean...I keep wondering where we got all our "stuff" from! Kids' clothes I can understand, but all the other junk...ugh. :}

We seriously need to work on that "lights off" part of the list. I'm the only one in the house that turns anything off. Grrr!

Your little ducks are adorable!
