Joni where to I go so I can try to win this beautiful bag. "Celebrate Green...Earth Day, Everyday" Okay I will go to all three places and I sure hope it will help me. Thanks so much even for the chance to win. Thanks for sharing this with us. I celebrate by giving thanks every day for what the Good Lord has given me. My home and the wildlife that is around me. For the green fields and yards that are near me. I help by keeping my grounds clean so wildlife comes by to eat.

We try to make taking care of the earth part of every day. We compost food scraps, and all the fall leaves for my gardens. We try to use cloth bags when shopping. We try to reuse everything or recycle. I save and use even the smallest scraps of thread and cloth for my art, and what is even too small or unusable for me goes to a friend who makes dog pillows for a shelter. I also try to use eco friendly dyes in my art. I save all kinds of things to use for crafts for scouts and bible school.
Thanks for showing your love for the earth.

We use old books that nobody wants and make cool new journals with them. Then we use our scrap paper from that to make fun little notepads.

Joni Nickrent said...

Awesome Shares Dolores and Slightly Askew...Love it! Thanks for joining in the Earth Day Fun here at Pop Art Minis! Good Luck!

I keep a bag in my car so that I can put recyclable trash in it so that it doesn't make it to the trash can.

We have been switching out all of our lights to LED - the end result is just as bright and you would not believe how little power they use.

More Great Green Goodness @FindingCharm and @Moags and Smeet! Thanks for sharing your Green Earth tips! Good Luck in the Giveaway!

Hi Joni,
I use practically everything I can for scrapbooking... toilet paper rolls, cereal boxes, any food boxes, etc. Also recycle everything, bring my own bags to the store and encourage others to do as much. I always use both sides of paper too, before recycling, I make scrap pads out of extra pages that got printed by accident, etc. Thanks for the chance to win!
