GIVE AWAY!!! What Did You Do For Earth Day 2008?

Well, I like to think that every day around my house is Earth Day. But I celebrated the day by doing something a little extra. I tried to conserve some energy by turning off my heat, opening the windows, and I did not use any lights all day (as long as the sun was shining). I also didn’t turn on the TV. What did you do? Leave a comment and I’ll pick a name out of a hat for a surprise giveaway!

  1. Cool giveaway! Today I cloth diapered my daughter, which we do pretty much every day, but I love helping the environment & my daughter’s bum by doing this!

  2. Jennifer, we cloth diaper our son too! Glad to meet another cloth diapering mom! Thanks for entering my contest.

  3. I finally made my reusable grocery sacks out of old cotton cloths my grandmother gave me. I have four now to use, in my car and ready to go. When I forget though, I use the plastic bags for bathroom garbage and the brown paper bags for painting on, so I will recycle those, istead of buying plastic garbage liners. I think even little steps help.

  4. Nora, thanks for stopping by! Can you come cook me some healthy food?! Haha.

  5. Mattos,

    That’s great that you re-use bags and made your own. Etsy seller remarket makes produce bags that are reusable! I bought a set and love them!

  6. I did similar things. I kept most (if not all lights off until just an hour ago). Kept the heat down and Committed to stop using plastic water and drink bottles! Yay for the Earth!!!!

  7. Nikki, that’s a good idea about the plastic water bottles, especially after the newest government warning about the BPA in them.

  8. sweetland retreat, that’s great that your dog helped you celebrate! Yay!

  9. Nikki Sherritt, you are my winner! Convo me on Etsy with your mailing address and I’ll put your lovely prize in the mail tomorrow! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Mandy, you’ll be glad to hear how I started off the new year and have continued to do so…I am recycling all paper boxes big & small! Cereal boxes, cracker boxes, fruit snack boxes…all of these and more can be flattened and tossed into the reycling with the newspapers and large cardboard boxes. I do it and I feel good about it!
