Earth Day is Everyday!

Did you know?

•Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch a TV for three hours - it's equivalent to half a gallon of gasoline.

•April 22 is the first official day of Spring in the Northern hemisphere and of Fall in the Southern hemisphere and was chosen to be Earth Day for this reason.

•Never underestimate the importance of recycling: if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year. Unfortunately only 27% of all American newspapers are recycled.

•For every 2000 pounds of paper (1 ton) recycled, we save 7,000 gallons of water free from chemicals.

•Only 11% of the earth's surface is used to grow food.

I recycle. I cloth diaper, use cloth wipes and make my own wipes solution. I am trying to break away from paper towels and want to try mama cloth when I finish breastfeeding my babe. I also make my own baby food. Another goal I have is to start making my own household step at a time, right? Oh, I also line dry my diapers and clothes as often as possible.
