Great Ways to Go Green with out braking the bank!






















April 22nd is Earth Day here--super time to start going green if you're not already. Here  are a few ways our family does out part everyday!





Reusable Lunch Containers – Instead of a brown bag, carry a lunch box. Instead of zip top bags, invest in reusable snack and sandwich bags.
 



Stop Buying Bottled Water -- so many great  drinking bottles out there. Fun way to go green and show a lil style too!



















Reduce, Reuse, Recycle--There are great reusable bags everywhere!  If you’re not recycling, this is a great week to start! Get the whole family in on it--kids love to recycle bottles if you let them keep the $$$ =)





The Clothesline – Start using a clothesline, and you’ll save on your monthly electric.







Burn Calories, Not Gas – Walking or riding bikes is budget friendly, earth friendly and figure friendly.







These are just a few ways our family goes green at little or no coast...most will save you money. What are some ways your family goes green??

  5. All great tips!! We have never bought bottled water (bottle water makes no sense to me); we try to use reusable grocery bags (often leave them in the car)...and we cannot go with a clothesline...it is always raining here :(

    1. our weather is NO GOOD about 1/2 the year snow & rain....but the few good months-closes are always out on the line...Our stores have BIG HUGE signs "DID YOU REMEMBER YOUR REUSABLE BAG??"--there's been a few times I've sent one of the kids back to the car =)

  6. Haha...I like the figure friendly part ;) We recycle cans and plastic, and that's pretty much it right now. There are a few other things we are going to start doing soon.

  7. This is great. I agree with Sofia - I gave up bottled water a couple years ago, and now save a lot of money. Bottled water is convenient, but I'm glad I got rid of it.
    Great tips here. There are some realllly expensive ways to sort of invest in going green, but this is an awesome start.

    Appreciate this. Awesome post as always!!

    1. yes some of the bigger steps can get costly--but I like doing what I can and saving some "green" too =)

  8. Okay, so...I hate anything to do with going green. No, really I do. Don't doubt me honey girl.


    Now, now...don't hate me. We do our part and recycle, blah blah blah.

    HOWEVER!!!! Living in the stinky desert like I do the only time I hang up clothes to dry (because they get so stiff and smell like bird poop) is when my kids are wearing them!

    1. ~~if you hose down the kids and cloths together your conserving water and soap by cutting out visits to the tub and wash machine!! LOL

  9. We have reusable lunch bags and water bottles, we do our laundry on cold cycles at night or very early in the morning, we consolidate our errands, I use cloth menstrual pads for myself and washable pads for our dog (when she's kept inside on rainy or cold days), and we're doing our best to cut down on paper products. Even a few small changes can add up to a lot of environmental savings. :)

  11. These are all good tips, and a reusable water bottle is fun. My youngest loves taking his to school everyday.

  12. I was shocked by how many water bottles I was drinking. I got one of those reusable, filtered bottles. Made a huge difference in the amount of waste.

  13. Wait...you can get money for plastic bottles???

    1. Not in every state...but in NY yes---you pay and extra 5 cents and then when you return the bottle to the machines shown in the photo you get $$ back

  14. My seven-year old daughter is starting to be conscious about the environment. Good for her :). We always carry a water bottle, and yes, we are taking more walks than driving.
