So, it shouldn't be that hard for a business to Go Green, especially when you work from home, buy locally, and run the business online. I thought it was about time I switched all my paper to 100% recycled paper. So, I went online to see if I could find somewhere locally to buy from and it was hard to find online. So, I'm going to keep looking and brainstorm a little. I have a few ideas brewing.
I've decide to list a few things I do to stay Green-
- Use all my used office paper as scratch paper- for little notes, adding up my jewelry components, writing lists (and I write a lot of lists)
- Reuse the shipping boxes and padding from shipments I receive
- Recycle my ink cartridges for credit at the stores to buy more
- Jewelry components- I haven't made them yet, but I just recently bought some vintage components to make some jewelry with from a gal on Etsy.com. I'm really excited about it! But, I have to have just the right inspiration to make them come to life. So, everyday I am drawing up ideas to for them.
- Cleaning products- I have to thank my sister in law she made me up a batch of cleaning products and they work great, and safe for my children
Here are few things I am going to do as soon as I run out
- buy recycled gift boxes- I might not get the color I want but I can add color with the ribbon I choose.
- recycled card stock for tags, earring cards, thank you notes, and business cards
I will keep adding to this list as I think about things. It's important for our family's and the generations that come after we are long gone, that they have a safe environment to live in.
What are you doing TODAY to help change safe the environment.
I came across these bags about a month ago or so, when I remember what blog I came across them at I will let you know. They do deserve the credit.
But, check these out... Flip & Tumble How many times a day do you need a bag and there are some great colors and perfect size that you can stash them anywhere.
