How to Celebrate Earth Day?

1. Plant a Tree- Planting trees helps to reduce greenhouse gas, cleans pollution,
secures soil and helps with erosion, and provides home for animals.

2. Reduce-Reuse-Recycle: Do this all day long! Recycle your plastic bags, take cloth bags with you to the grocery store. Take drink containers with you-reuse plastic water
bottles.  Donate your old toys, clothes to others. Just don't throw
them away.

3. Pick up Litter- Get a group together and pick of trash along the side of the road or 
around your neighborhood. Many company's donate gloves and bags for 
clean-up groups.

4. Wear Green or Brown- Think nature or trees.

  2. When we saw those wine cork globes in Anthropologie Brendan suggested I sell those in my shop. I said how do you suggest I ship those and where would I store them? ha ha!
