Make Everyday Earth Day

Apr 23 2013

Yesterday was Earth Day, but it certainly should not be the only day of the year that we make an effort to conserve, recycle, and repurpose!

Click over to AARP for a list of Other Earth Friendly Days that promote green living.  Examples include Bike to Work Day, National Wildlife Day and National Rideshare Week.  Get these dates on your calendar so that you can celebrate and live green all year long.

Next, visit the Bored Panda website and check out 30 Creative Ways to Repurpose & Reuse Old Stuff.  This article features some amazing and clever ways to reuse items around the home.  I personally love the old ladder used as a bookshelf and the tennis rackets transitioned into mirrors.  Ingenious!

Finally, take a look at the latest items featured on Real Simple’s New Uses for Old Things.  The magazine is always adding to this collection so be sure to visit often.
