Friday Link Love: Greener living

August 5, 2011

As you know, I try to recycle, reduce, and reuse as much as possible. Not only does it save money, but it creates a cleaner, safer environment for our kids and future generations to live in. I'm not super crazy when it comes to going green, but I think there are simple, practical ways that everybody can make small changes in their life.

This week, I was inspired by just a couple of ideas that I found on Pinterest.  Check them out:

Reusable snack baggies:
Simple to make, and would save me so much money on plastic baggies since I'm constantly putting snacks in them for my daughter!

Reusable towel roll:
A great alternative to paper towels! I would have never thought of something so clever...

10 free lunch tote tutorials:
My favorite tutorial in this list is the resuable sandwich wrapper. How cute is that?

Spraypainted cans:
Instead of throwing out cans, why not spraypaint them and use them as planters? It's a great way to recycle, and these colorful planters would look so adorable in a kitchen or on a windowsill.
