As I said last week, one of the things I am trying to be better at is being healthy… all the way around in life. So with that being greener is on the list. I’ve been paying more attention to the products that I am using around the house & trying to make more eco friendly choices. One product that I’ve been using for years is Bigelow Tea and after a little research I found that they are actually a sustainable company! The family owned company works hard to insure they not only produce recyclable & biodegradable products but to eliminate waste in their facility by being a “zeo waste” company. After looking on their website at all the ways they are being green to help preserve mother nature it inspired me to do a little Earth Day project with Miss.A.

Plus she got to pick out her very own plant for the vegetable garden, a banana pepper plant. {her favorite} We also picked up a variety of Bigelow Teas to have a refreshing drink after being outside. {it’s been nearly 100 degrees here so something refreshing is a must} Once she had her new “baby” {the banana pepper plant… she’s been very protective of it making sure it survives} in the garden. We worked on our new composter for all our kitchen scraps. We used to just throw them into a pile however I recently realized that they will compose faster if they are able to be tossed/mixed. So we built our own {I’ll share how we did that later this week} it was so simple and a great way to help explain to kids what composting is. One of the great things about Bigelow Tea is that most of their tea bags are staple free. Since tea bags are biodegradable this makes them super easy to compost since we can just throw them in our bucket without having to remove any non compostable parts.

Did you do anything fun for Earth Day?
