⤵ Check out our tips of other ways to go green on a daily basis and find out that “environmentally friendly” provides a wide field for creativity!
🌱 Don’t turn on lights at all for as long as you can. Open your curtains and use natural light. ☀ You can also make occasional “dark” afternoons with your kids or spend an evening a week over a kerosene lamp. It can be great fun!
🌱 Reduce, reuse, and recycle whatever you can: wrapping paper, old jars, scrap paper, plastic ice-cream containers. Print on two sides, pay all of your bills online. Let your kids color on the backside of used paper. Use your imagination or ask uncle Google for tips.
🌱 Take care of your water.💧 Fix leaky faucets. Install sink water aerators. Wash laundry in cold water. Cut the shower time and see you can refresh yourself in half time!
🌱 Plant a tree or bushes in your yard. Start an organic garden
🌱 Buy organic food and make organic meals. Try out new green recipes every other day. 🥦🥕
🌱 Buy vegetables that are grown locally and support local restaurants. This one can be particularly appreciated during the pandemic!
🌱 Make your own cleaning solutions. Did you know that you just need to mix citric acid, baking soda, borax, soap flakes, and aromatic oil to make a nice washing powder at home?
