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 the number of trash bags in the landfill by not using a trash bags in all of your garbage cans. If you do use a trash bag, leave the trash bag in the garbage can and just dump the trash or consolidate the trash into one before you dump it out.

Reuse: Reuse pumpkin seeds as bird food.
Just dry the seeds then feed them to the birds.

Recycle: Recycle plant clippings into new plants.

Every couple of months I walk around my house with scissors and clip off the unruly tops of my plants then I put them in a vase of water and wait for them to sprout roots. Once I see roots I replant the clippings. I have been replanting to same two kinds of plants into the same two pots for a few months now and I have two very decent size plants. Time to start 2 more pots.

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

Have a Great Green Weekend!

I'm with you on the garbage bag idea. I like to dump the wastebaskets into one common bag, usually in the kitchen. A Little less plastic in the landfill can only be a good thing.
