We are officially declaring March the month of GREEN! You can eat greens, wear greesn and even live green. There are some super easy things you can do in your everyday life that will warrant you a big hug from Mother Nature Herself.
1.) If it has a plug, turn if off.
Even when electronics appear to be sleeping they are still using some power. The best way to save energy is to unplug it all together. Traveling? Unplug all your electronic devices before leaving and save maximum energy in your house.

2.) Are you drinking so much coffee the baristas know you by name?
Get a travel mug, in fact a lot of coffee shops offer discounts for using them.

3.) Become a bag lady or gentleman.
If you aren’t already using reusable bags, we know where you can get some. Hint. Hint.
4.) Eat less meat.
Pat yourself on the back, because you are already one step ahead. Just one meatless meal a week not only saves the animals but also saves the environment from all the harsh pollutants factory farms produce.

Aside from recycling, we all have things we do not need anymore. You know all those newspapers collecting on your counter? Donate them to a local animal shelter that can use them in the kennels.
