Earth Friendly Rhymin'
With Spring time finally making it's way back into our lives we wanted to share some great outdoor activities you can do with the kiddies while encouraging them to respect the planet and have fun doing it:
1. "Mary Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow, with silver bells and cockle shells"
Teach em' how to compost: composted fertilizer you've provided from your own reusable disposables. Start composting for spring and summer fertilizing needs. You reduce landfill waste and have an economical excellent supply of fertilizer.
2. "To market to market to buy - whatever we need."
Shopping: Use reusable bags if you're going shopping, shopping from A to Z. They are available in so many places now and they are relatively inexpensive. At the very least, be sure you recycle your bags if you are not using reusable bags.
3. "Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candlestick"
Candles & Such: making sure of course that the candles have lead free wicks that do not create dangerous air pollution.
