Get Some Helpful Green Advice From Maid Brigade This Earth Day!

April 14, 2010

Earth Day is a spring celebration which takes place on April 22nd.  It is a perfect way to incorporate recycling with some green spring cleaning!  This year, Maid Brigade is teaching people about eco-friendly living and how to go green in order to help save the environment.  

What can you do to help celebrate Earth Day?

No action is too big or too small when it comes to being "greener".  All it takes is a little effort to change day-to-day habits into something eco-friendly.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that households should consider reducing waste around the house and yard.  Using grass clippings as well as some kitchen waste and food scraps for compost is a good way to fertilize the lawn.

Find ways to reuse household waste or items that usually get thrown in the trash.  Most people have items laying around the house that can easily be recycled.  Recycling gets rid of clutter in the home and helps the environment at the same time.

When grocery shopping, try using paper bags instead of plastic ones, or bring your own reusable cloth bags to transport your groceries.  

Try switching over to organic foods and vegetables.  Visit the USDA.gov website for tips on how to buy organically grown produce.  Try creating new recipes with your organic groceries or transform old recipes into eco-friendly ones.

When vacationing, choose hotels that are members of green industry associations, or that have environmental friendly certifications.  Consider walking or taking public transportation around town.

Get your children involved.  Teach them the purpose behind Earth Day and why it is important to recycle.  Work together and create a small garden.  Have the children plant the seeds so they can watch them grow.

With green living more popular now than it has ever been, decide on this Earth Day to find ways to be environmentally aware.
