My family and I have been trying go green this year. That means natural remedies, organic food, and using less paper. The less chemicals in our lives the better. I have another post on healthy recipes coming soon! 

April is Earth Month. Also the perfect time to get your gardens ready to grow those delicious vegetables. We celebrate earth month by planting tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots. Nothing is more organic than your own garden! 

Are you looking for ways to go green? Here are some tips to get you started. 

Start at the sink. Use a toothpaste that is made with no artificial flavors, colors, fragrances or preservatives. Tom's of Maine packaging is recyclable and of course they don't test on animals. They also donate 10% of their profits to environmental and human goodness.

Using a natural deodorant not only is great for the environment, it is great for your arm pits. It is also aluminum free for those like me who have extremely sensitive skin. 

We go shopping a lot! So we use those reusable totes. Not only are they better for the environment,  a lot of places give you discounts for using your own bags. 

 Grow your own vegetables. They are delicious and right in your own back yard. 

Recycle your newspaper. There are 63 million newspapers printed a day. About 69% of them are just thrown away. Recycling the Sunday paper could save half a million trees a week.

Take shorter showers. Every two minutes you cut from your shower you can conserve more than ten gallons of water.

Buy Local. It is great for the environment and economy.

Pay bills online. I find it easier to pay my bills online. It is easier to track, and saves on paper. If everyone paid their bills online we could save over 1.7 billion pounds of waste.

Car Pool when possible. Not only is it good for the environment but it's good on your wallet.

Go to a car wash. It saves on water, your energy and time.
