Blog Frog and Seventh Generation have partnered up with bloggers to answer the question: How do you live like the Lorax? As a family, here are five of our favorite ways to protect and celebrate the Earth:
Gardening! We have a small garden in our backyard. Every Spring we plant new seeds to grow fresh herbs and vegetables. This year, we are growing eggplants, basil, rosemary, broccoli, kale, tomatoes, chives, oregano, and so much more! Gardening is a great way to spend time with your family and teach children to respect the earth and its offerings.
Composting! We have a compost bin so we can convert food scraps and yard clippings into nutrient-rich soil for our garden. Compost bins are simple and inexpensive to make and are a great way to reduce garbage.
Recycling! We recycle used plastic, cardboard, paper, and certain metals in our recycling bin that is collected weekly. We also bring plastic bags to the grocery store to recycle.
Reusable shopping bags! Reusable shopping bags are a great way to reduce waste. After unpacking your groceries, remember to wash them as needed and return them to your car for the next shopping trip.
Eco-friendly household products! It is imperative that we evaluate the safety of household products, especially when there are young children around. We use Seventh Generation cleaning products (including the Free & Clear Laundry Detergent, Dishwashing Liquid, and All Purpose Cleaner) because we know they are safer for our family.
