'going green' things I'm loving for earth day

Of course we all know that 'going green' shouldn't just be for Earth Day. No, we should be striving to change our attitude and impact on our environment and show some appreciation for this incredible planet we're all living on, every single day that we live on it.

There are so many easy things we could do daily, things that once we started doing them they would become second nature, things that are so simple that it would be just plain silly not to try!

- Like switching off all non essential electricals.
- Turning off the light when you leave a room.
- Remembering to turn off the radio when you take the dog for a walk.
- Choose a handmade soap for cleaning your mucky pup.
- Choosing an organic peppermint tea.
- Only filling the kettle with just enough water for your cup.
- Try to only buy biscuits in recyclable packaging.
- Choose an eco-friendly detergent.
- Or opt for a (mostly) non chemical approach to cleaning.
- Use bio-degradable rubbish (trash) bags.
- Generally recycle where you can.
- Use recycled or organic yarns.
- Choose only to eat organic chocolate and lots of it ;)
- And obviously, buy handmade!

Now this is just a small list I pulled from my daily routine and I'm sure most of you do all this and much, much more! I would love to hear any of your wee tips if you have them?

Happy Earth Day everyone!
Emma, x

  1. We really have lovely choices, don't we.

  2. Everything here is just divine! It goes to show, natural eco friendly products are better than just about anything manufactured at our planets expense...

  3. Gorgeous items Emma - especially that wooden leaf toy/ puzzle. I think eco friendly items are now by far the best option seeing as they are all so wonderful and one isn't further adding to our lovely planet's demise by choosing them over mass produced stuff!

  4. And, over here in the big city that is New York, we are glad to have access to vast, reasonable affordable public transporation via our buses and subway trains. Makes us feel noble not to have cars. And...there are lots of shoe repair shops dotted about the neighborhoods, since we do walk lots!

    Best wishes. xo

  5. Oh wow! Your blog is gorgeous, Emma! Thank you so much for putting my upcycled messenger bag in your Earth Day blog! I think it would look so lovely with that tunic top pictured above it! ;)
