B Kind 2 Earth Day Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Do you know that today is the day for being kind to our earth? Everything we do affects the environment in one way or the other...and many things we do on a daily basis affect the earth negatively. I think every day should be "Earth Day," so that people will make choices that positively (or at least only neutrally) affect our environment.

What kinds of things can we do to celebrate B Kind 2 Earth Day? Well, here's what I'm doing today (and hopefully will continue to do every day)...
  • Turning off lights when you're not in a room. It's just as simple as flipping the switch.
  • Turning off AND unplugging any appliances when not using them. Even when things are turned off, if they're still plugged in then they are still using some electricity.
  • Walking places instead of driving, or taking public transportation (when feasible). This is the most difficult for me because of needing to take the baby with me, but my hubby takes public transportation to work and he walks a LOT.
  • Opening the windows instead of turning on the air conditioning.
  • On the flip side, turning off the central heat and using space heaters (when feasible).
  • Buying locally grown produce. I shop at a farmer's market type store that sells almost only produce (with some natural packaged products). They're significantly cheaper than the big chains, the food is much fresher, and I'm making a smaller carbon footprint by buying local.
This is certainly not an exhaustive list of all of the things you can do, but it's a start. Every little bit helps! Please visit the B Kind 2 Earth Day Facebook page for more ideas on ways you can help save our environment.

we use cloth napkins and dishtowels instead of paper.
we recycle, reuse or repurpose as much as we can.
what we don't eat, goes to the critters, or if they won't eat it, it goes to the compost pile.
we only use the a/c at night, to sleep.
we plan our trips (and route) to town, carefully to do as many errands as we can at one time.

thanks for this great giveaway!

We try to make these every day practices rather than things we do for one day - but our efforts to celebrate earth day include using ceiling fans rather than central air conditioning, turning off the lights when not in the room, not staring at the refrigerator with the doors open forever trying to decide on what to eat and we just installed awnings over the windows to cut down on how much sun comes in during the afternoon to help keep the house cooler.
