How to be eco friendly

This coming Sunday April 22nd is Earth Day. It’s the day when we celebrate the environment and all the things we can do to be kind to the earth.

Do you need some ideas? Listen up (or to put it more literally - read on).

First of all, consider using vintage items rather than buying new things. There are so many great vintage finds out there that you can use in your house.
Choosing vintage clothing is another great idea. You’ll look unique and you’ll be sure that no one else shows up to the party wearing the same dress you are wearing.
You can also consider buying upcycled products. There are many things that talented artists make out of used products. Check out this wall clock. Isn’t it cool?

I personally love jewelry and accessories made out of upcycled computer parts. So modern and stylish!

Even your iPhone or iPod case can be made out of recycled materials.

So look around and make conscientious choices. Go for handmade items rather than factory produced. They are more unique and don’t leave a footprint on the environment.

Choose natural materials that are renewable.

Go for an organic option of whatever you want to buy.
Make it a habit to choose reusable products rather than their disposable alternative.

And remember even little changes can make a big difference. Happy Earth Day!

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.
It will always be helpful to read articles from other authors and practice a little something from their web sites.
