Earth Day Bearthday!

Happy Earth Day everyone!

I’d just like to take a moment and give a great big hug to this wonderful planet of ours.

I realize this sounds cliche, but it should be:

I love our planet, and I sometimes worry about our future generations and the earthly problems that they will have to deal with. But anyways, I won’t get political here…

Let’s talk cleaning!

I found this great website with all the recipes to make natural cleaners for basically anything! I thought it was great!! You should check it out!

All you really need is:

  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • All Natural Tea Tree Oil And Grapefruit Oil (which have known antibacterial properties) And Lemon Juice
  • Liquid Castile Soap

To make:

Surface Spray, All Purpose Liquid Cleaner,All Purpose Abrasive Cleaner, Refrigerator Cleaner, Oven Cleaner, Microwave Cleaner, Dishwasher Detergent, Gorgeously Green All-Purpose Spray, Fruit and Vegetable Wash, Drain Cleaner, Window, Glass and Chrome Cleaner, Toilet Bowl Cleaners, Scrub with a toilet brush, Tub And Tile Cleaner, Soft Scrub for Fixtures, Mildew/Germ Killer, Mildew/Germ Killer 2, Wood Floor Cleaner, Linoleum Floor Cleaner, Carpet Stain Remover, Carpet Deodorizer, All-Purpose Carpet Cleaner, Air Freshener, Furniture Polish, Metal Polish (copper and brass), Powdered Laundry Detergent, Liquid Laundry Detergent, Laundry Pre-treatment, Fabric Softener, Bleach Alternative (Laundry)………….

Anywho, you get the point! Pretty much any type of cleaner you can image can be made easily at a low cost to you and the environment! WIN.

I love using fruit and vegetable wash, but it’s quite expensive, so when I run out, I will salvage the bottle and make my own :)

I want to try and make it a point to make natural cleaners! For me, there’s no excuse not too!

Onto other greenness!

I bought this wine in lieu of the holiday:

Cono Sure Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenere Organic Wine

They were voted green company of the year in 2011!!

I’ll support that – ESPECIALLY if it involves wine :)

Plus, It came with this sweet bracelet!

Now let’s chat about recycling. Just a casual little chat…

I’m really happy that my roommates and I recycle and all, buttt, we seem to have trouble with the TAKING OUT part of recycling.

Although this photo goes up with embarrassment, THIS is our balcony.


Yes, you see that right, it is FULL of recycling. To the point of ridiculousness!

We may need to be on the show HOARDERS soon.

To be fair, I have 5 roommates (so it piles up very fast!)…and we have all been very busy with exams and studying. There is no excuse though. I think now that the recycle pile has gotten THIS BIG, no one is willing to tackle the project on their own.

Roommates unite- recycle we will conquer thee once and for all.

Happy Sunday,

Peace, Love, Earth,

Ellie
