Tip: Find a second use for everything.
"Nothing goes to waste in our home. I have taught my five children to recycle and reuse. Egg shells, fruit peels, and coffee grounds all make wonderful fertilizers for gardens. The cans and plastic containers they come in are also reused. Aluminum cans become 'mini greenhouses' for our outdoor plants. Or, we paint them and fill with treats for gifts. Plastic milk jugs are cut, decorated, and hung as bird feeders. Newspaper is used to clean windows. Bread bags are crocheted into durable throw rugs. Our home and environment is healthier due to our family's dedication to keeping our environment greener!"
