Happy Earth Day!

Celebrate the earth! Do what you can to help protect our planet. Here are some ways you can be earth-friendly:

1. Recycle! Recycle! Recycle! SO many things are recyclable. You just have to take the initiative to DO IT! You can actually have a garbage bin more full of recyclable products
than with waste (really, it's true!)!
2. Reduce! You can reduce the amount of water and electricity you use in your home. Simply turn off the water when brushing your teeth, or take a less lengthy shower. Turn the lights off when they're not in use. Conserve! Conserve every chance you get. Sounds easy - and it is!
3. Re-us
e! Recycle things by re-using them. Re-use those plastic shopping bags, for example.

These three things are just reminders of what we really already know. We've been hearing "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" (the three Rs) for way over a decade...We still need to hear it now. It's important!

My family recycles as much as we can, so much that our recycle bin is always overflowing. Now, we're also coming up with fun ways to reuse things too. We just launched our new section in our
shop. It's called "justBgreen Eco-Friendly," which will carry eco-friendly items and items that are made with being green in mind. So far, we only have one listing in there, but it's about to be expanded, so be on the lookout! Our first item in the new section --- a paper bead unisex necklace. Check it out! CLICK HERE.

We really try to be eco-friendly, but I know there's a lot more we could do too. By remembering the three Rs, at least we try to do our part and help as much as we can. =)

What are some ways that you try to be green? Leave a comment and share!!!
