We have been using Method products for quite a while now, but I have been waning to try Charlie's soap products. So many green suggestions;
reusable canvas bags for shopping
recycle
compost
use rain barrels...

Now for the Green tip....I have decided to use some of the wonderful tips that were given for my contest.

I have been washing most of my laundry in cold water.

My green tip is to have your husband switch from shaving cream to shaving soap and a shaving brush. This keeps those shaving cream cans out of the land fills, and it's cheaper, too! We find our shaving soap and shaving brushes at CVS.

I just recently discovered that it is not necessary to wash blue jeans every day. In fact, it is recommended to NOT wash them. Supposedly, it's recommended on the tag of pricey European jeans to go a month without washing them. I don't think I can stand to do that, but I can go a couple days. It is also recommended to line dry them, which is something I prefer to do anyway.

My green tip Don't add to our over used thrash accumulation by throwing out dryer sheets After each use put then in a jar that you add a few cap fulls of fabric softener to, shake take out and clip them all with a one clothespin, let dry and voila! new dryer sheets to use.

Instead of using Ajax cleanser to clean my sinks I have been using Baking Soda, it works very well.

My green tip is to turn off the water while brushing your teeth & soaping up your hands while washing. Saves a bunch of water! Also, you can use gray water to water plants, etc.

Okay, here's my green tip:Resell, donate or make something out of old kids' clothes. If they get stained, either use the fabric or pass it on to someone else who can. If we reused more clothes and bought used ones instead of brand new, we could eliminate a lot of waste.

There were so many WONDERFUL tips and again a HUGE Thank you to all!!!

Until next Tuesday...... keep it Green!
