HEB Earth Day 1 day Giveaway!

HEB contacted me and offered to give 3 of my readers a reusable tote in honor of Earth Day! They have some really great tips below that we easily forget to do!

**Leave a comment below and Thursday night the kids will pick 3 winners, HEB will mail you your bag!

A few quick and easy tips to make every day Earth Day.

1. Turn off your lights, television, and radio when you leave the house to save electricity.

2. Wash your clothes in cold water instead of warm or hot.

3. Fix leaky faucets—they can waste thousands of gallons of water per year.

4. Remember to turn off your computer, printer, and other equipment when it’s not being used.

5. Bring any unused plastic bags back to your local H-E-B to be recycled.

6. Don’t let the water run while you brush your teeth. Simply wet the brush and use a pre-filled cup to rinse.

7. Try to carpool to work. Many workplaces have a carpooling program.

8. Change your home air-conditioning filter every month to keep things running efficiently.

9. Remember to check your tire pressure regularly. If you keep your tires properly inflated you can increase your miles per gallon and extend the life of your tires.

10. When grocery shopping, bring your own reusable bags to reduce the number of plastic shopping bags used.

We line-dry our clothes whenever possible. I actually love doing it. It relaxes me and gives me a few moments of peace each day. Kari

Every Sunday, we drive 20 miles to the nearest city and dump our recycling because our small town doesn't have a center. And we might look through the newspapers for extra inserts, and grab plastic laundry soap bottles for our homemade laundry detergent.

I actually miss having a clothes line, though as a kid I was often annoyed to be pulled away from whatever I was doing to help with laundry. We're considering putting one in here, but the compost pile and garden come first. :)
