A weekly series of simple tips geared toward helping you darken your shade of green. Easily.
Reduce: Reduce the amount of waste you generate by using reusable instead of disposable
- Reusable coffee mugs
- Reusable shopping bags
- Reusable water bottles
- Reusable produce bags
- Reusable lunch bag and containers
- Reusable napkins
Just substituting these few items can make a HUGE difference in the amount of waste generated!
Reuse: Reuse potting containers
When you purchase plants from nurseries save the containers the plants came in and return them to the nurseries. Most will gladly reuse them.
You can also take back the cardboard flats that most places give you to carry all your plants in, especially if they have the nurseries name on them.
Even better , take your own carrying boxes with you when you go to a nursery so you don’t have to use “new” ones.
Recycle: Recycle your gift cards via mail at Earthworks!
