3 R Friday

Welcome to 3R Friday.

A weekly series of simple tips geared toward helping you darken your shade of green. Easily.

Reduce: Reduce the amount of fresh water you use for watering plants by collecting spent water:
  • Place a container in the kitchen sink and pour any excess water into it (from dog bowls, water bottles, rinsed dishes, ice cubes that fall on the floor, etc)
  • Dump the left over ice from water coolers into plants
  • After you give your child a bath (or take a relaxing one yourself) use the water for your plants.
  • Install a rain barrel
  • Water one plant over another so the excesses water waters the 2nd plant
  • Place a container in your shower to catch the excess water

Reuse: Reuse dryer lint for compost material
  • I keep a small bag on my dryer and just fill it with the lint. When the bag gets full and add it to my composter.

Recycle: Recycle Elmer's glue sticks with the Elmer's Glue Crew Recycling Program!®

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

Have a Great Green Weekend!
