Post image for The Green Way to Spring Clean

I love the idea of spring cleaning. A time to open the windows, dust off winter, and shake out the chill. Read More

Using natural cleaners is a always the best choice! I have very few toxic cleaners at home that I still use. I love the recipes that you suggest trying! I love cleaning with lemon and baking soda, so I'll try them! :) Thanks for sharing! :)

Hey Jeff, perhaps your comments are better suited to a chemical laden website. Obviously they mean nothing here. Go troll somewhere else and let us who care about the world make our own cleaners!! :)

Post image for Reduce & Reuse: Help The Earth With This Easy DIY

So often it’s convenience that drives us to make non-eco-friendly decisions.Read More

That's a lovely idea! And the tutorial's very simple. I changed my job recently and now I'm able to bring food from home and I need to carry my own knife, fork and spoon, so this idea came right on time for me. I'm trying to reduce my family's waste with some simple steps and this idea will be a part of the whole process. I have few old tablecloths in beautiful colors that are great to be recycled into utensil carriers. Thank you for the inspiration!

Such a good idea... so simple, yet I haven't done it yet and I KNOW I waste plastic utensils at work. Thanks for the inspiration! www.radiatetheday.blogspot.com

Post image for How to Make Plantable Seed Paper

I’ve been wanting to experiment with making my own paper for a while now, and with April being #FPEarthMonth I knew it was the perfect time to finally do it. Read More

Did this last year and now have beautiful blooms in my room! Just follow the steps exactly

It's great idea :D I made already two homemade papers so I'll try with seeds. I tried to place in mine dry flowers, but the paper was stained by them in yellow (can I say that? English isn't my native language D:). I will try again! https://www.etsy.com/shop/wildcity

This DIY is so perfect! ^_^ Also- those apothecary candles (like the one in the second to last photo) are seriously THE BEST! The tobacco and patchouli one is my favorite <3

Does the material of the t-shirt matter? I am not sure if the t-shirt I have in mind for this is 100% cotton, or a blend.

Just commenting to say that I live close to Oregon, IL and worked at white pines ranch (t shirt used here!). Was fun to see it on Pinterest lol

Post image for Care for Your Local Wildlife With These Homemade Bird Feeders

This post comes from our blog intern, Aubrie!

Heya- Just a passing comment as an ecologist- feeding birds in areas that get real winters (obviously excluding Florida) and migrating birds, putting out bird feeders like these out in the winter actually detours the birds from migrating as they would normally and ends in its ultimate death. Something we call an "ecological trap". Be mindful of this..

Beautiful idea! Looks good and good for birds also! www.safran-bolu.com

Post image for Save a Tree, Make Your Own Cloth Napkins

The average person uses around six paper napkins per day — that’s over 2,000 per year! Read More

I love this idea! I just inherited my grandma's old singer so I am so jumping on this DIY! xo Michaela http://michaelajeanblog.com http://www.etsy.com/shop/MichaelaJeanArt
Naly -Apr 07, 2015, 11:27AM
I find that buying them at the thrift store is much more cost effective. I always find my cloth napkins there for 10 cents a piece or in a set of 6 for 50 cents. No one ever wants them and they always have a lot, sometimes they even have really nice ones that are embroidered.
