Happy Earth Day!

In honor of Earth Day, here are a few suggestions to try today:

Slow down your driving ways. Yes, us moms can be a little heavy-footed with the old gas pedal ...it's true. But speeding up, slowing down and braking hard wastes fuel...so even if it's just today, slow down and enjoy the drive.

Skip the soaps with anti-bacterial properties. Public health officials worry that antibacterials (in cleansers, window cleaners, and soaps are causing us to become resistant to antibiotics. So use natural soaps and hot water for washing hands, and try some homemade natural cleansers like water and vinegar for cleaning surfaces in your home.

Shop with a list if you go to the grocery store today. People that do grocery shopping without a list tend to buy more than they really should.  So you spend more than you should, and unused spoiled food gets tossed out in the trash: bad for your wallet, and bad for the environment.

Turn off the lights today when you leave a room. Don't let the water run today when brushing your teeth. Take a shorter shower today.

Give your TV time off for Earth Day today. Play a game with the family tonight, or take an evening walk and enjoy nature at her finest!
