Ahh, spring… a time for new beginnings, new growth and of course, spring cleaning!
It’s also a great time to take a minute to take inventory of your green goals for the year. Maybe now is the time to implement a few small changes that you were considering back in January.
Today, I’m excited to be hosting a great giveaway, along with a little challenge for each of you (and myself!). Take a look at my vlog for more information!
To recap, the ideas I’ve had so far for greening up a particular space in my (new) home are:
- My floors: natural floor coverings/rugs, and possibly a steam cleaner for the tile floors
- Backyard composting: a bigger compost pile/bin
- Trash organization: better cans in kitchen for trash and recycle
I’d love for you to join me in finding a spot in your home that you can green up. Remember, these can be small changes that don’t have to cost much, but that contribute to your overall green goals for your home and family. Let us know in the comments (or also over on our Facebook page) what you are hoping to do!
