Love the World Around You

February brings thoughts of love and enchantment as couples and friends look to show their affection and appreciation to one another. As you celebrate this season of love, find ways to love the environment to make the earth a better place to live. As you think about how you can participate, consider these suggestions.

Reusable water bottles
Something as simple as using a reusable water bottle will make the environment a better place. It is estimated that 500 billion plastic bottles are used annually, and your reusable water bottle will keep 1,460 bottles from filling our landfills and oceans.

Rain barrels
Purchase a rain barrel and use the water for your plants when the sun burns brighter and raises the temperature during the arid months of summer.

Cloth napkins
Use cloth napkins instead of paper to reduce the amount of paper waste in our landfills.

Conserve energy
Save energy and water at the same time by running the dishwasher only when it is full. Similarly, reduce your laundry days to when you have a full load. Consider line-drying your clothes as well.

Use reusable straws
Take a reusable straw with you when you go out to eat and forget about the plastic ones. Experts say that 500 million disposable, single use straws are used daily, which can fill up a landfill fast. Take reusable bags to the grocery store, too.

Eat with the environment in mind
Make more environmentally friendly food choices, like more vegetables and less meat. Processing livestock affects the environment in harmful ways.

As you show the earth some love, take time to love yourself by soaking in a relaxing tub of water with one of our Luxurious Bath Bombs to soften your skin and ease your mind. We at Edgar’s Bath Goods extend our heartfelt appreciation to you! Take care!
