    Plastic grocery bags can be reused in multiple ways such as: a lunch bag, a dog waste bag, a rain cap for hair, waterproof seat cover, cover for when dying hair, trash bags for small trash cans, litter scoop holder, dirty shoe covers, etc. The list can be infinite when we get creative!

    Well my fur babies definitely love to munch on my green beans and peas from my garden so I'd have to say the animals get to enjoy it as well! It's also just beautiful to have surround you, very visually pleasing!

    This morning on my way to work I heard PFJ represented on NPR. I found the story and linked it below in case you'd like to listen or read too. It's full of some great tips and reasons for participating and going plastic free. Take a listen...

    Went to the beach Sunday morning for sunrise and picked up a whole Ikea bags worth of trash! While it wasn't an organized event, little initiatives like these help our planet!

    Instead of using individual doggie poop bags I have started keeping one bag and picking up with a paper towel.

    I switched to a microfiber cleaning solution I purchased on Amazon.com, it came in a clear, glass bottle for $32.99. Using this solution I've learned I actually use less product and my clothes still come out clean with a fresh scent.

    Reusing what we already own not only has a positive impact on the environment, but it also creates a sense of appreciation of your "things". Rather than constantly tossing things to the side and buying brand new items, having to care for and resuse items creates stronger responsibility within an individual and appreciation of the item...

    I feel when I take initiative in picking up trash in the community, I'm showing those around me (especially children) that we all are responsible in creating a beautiful and clean space for us all to enjoy.

    Production requires little energy and has low CO2 emissions.
