Being kind to the earth was something that I thought little of when I was living the city life. Sure, I put out my recycling with the weekly trash pick-up, but that was about it. My attitude has certainly changed since moving to the farmette. This being Earth Day and all, I thought it relevant to take a moment and reflect upon how we can all do small things that make a difference.
Limiting the use of pesticides is something that has been brought to the forefront for me. We eat produce that we grow and also raise our own beef. I don't want to consume chemicals with my meal.
How about using your own bags at the grocery store? Not something I do enough of, I must say.
What about a compost pile? Go Secret Agent Man, is all I have to say about that.
How about visiting your farmer's market and do a little local shopping? I did yesterday and enjoyed fresh strawberries, asparagus, pear honey, and homemade wheat bread with supper.
Thanks to Pinterest, I have even taken to making my own household cleaners.
What about you? What things do you do to help the environment?
