3 R Friday

Welcome to 3 R Friday
A weekly series of simple tips geared toward helping you darken your shade of green. Easily.

Reduce: Reduce your coffee’s environmental impact:
  • Buy organic, fair trade, shade grown coffee
  • Use a reusable coffee filter
  • Sprinkle spent coffee grounds around your plants, yard, or compost them
  • Take a coffee mug to work so you don’t use a disposable cup
  • Buy whole beans and grind them at the store
  • Take a reusable coffee mug with you when buying coffee at coffee shops (i.e. Starbucks)
  • Pour creamer before coffee (the coffee will mix with the creamer and you won’t need to a stirrer)
  • Use organic pure sugar
  • Buy recycled unbleached coffee filters and compost them after use

Reuse: Reuse Water

Place any left over ice from a cooler into hanging or potted plants and then use the melted ice to water plants.

Recycle: Recycle your jeans with From Blue to Green

Hope you found these tips helpful. Feel free to share any tips you may have.

Have a Great Green Weekend!
