How have we gone GREEN?
We've put in the squiggly bulbs.
We recycle, and I've been know to dig through the trash to move things over to the recycling can!
I have "makeshift" rain barrels. (They work for me!)
I have cloth bags for groceries.
My BIGGEST contribution to going green is the creation of....
Cloth Snack Bags!
Don't tease and mock the sewing, people!
I went out and bought a sewing machine and taught MYSELF to sew and make these little lovelies!!
Since then, thank goodess, my sewing has DRAMATICALLY improved, and now I'm able to make things like THESE!
But back to the cloth snack bags.
Rather than using and throwing away countless ziplock bags that take up SO much space in landfills, my kids use their cloth snack bags.
They picked fabric for the outside. I put a vinyl type fabric on the inside and attached velcro.
We rinse them out or even throw them in the washing machine. (Which apparently is what the pink and purple striped one DESPERATELY needs!)
And VOILA, just like that, reduce our carbon footprint!
