During the month of February, I had a great time with my mama making our produce and bulk bags. I will share how I made them on a separate blog this week! The tree/bush planting was so much fun. My son had a great time and I am so glad he was able to experience this at a young age. The weather was quite bizarre this past month with some rain, sun, snow, and ice. Every chance we could, we got outside. I will continue being outside more this coming month.
Here are a couple "teaser" shots of when we made our own produce bags. By the end of the week I will post a blog all about how I made them.
My March One Small Change Plan:
- We are joining SOLV with their Spring Beach Cleanup. I have done this in the past with family and enjoy my memories from it. We usually pick the Manzanita, Oregon area since it my absolute favorite beach from growing up there. If you are in Oregon, please check out SOLV's website and join the clean-up. Help keep our beautiful beaches and ocean clean!
- My son's birthday is this week. We are having a small party with some of his little friends and our family. I am choosing to do eco-friendly party favors in place of a plastic or a sugar coated favor. Since Spring is around the corner, we are going to be giving out little growing pots with a packet of seeds. Pictures will be up of this!
- I am starting my spring cleaning the "green" way. I am only going to do the first three steps of my spring cleaning this month and will be at it full force next month in preparation of our new little one arriving in the summer. My first step of spring cleaning this month is reducing our stuff. I will be carefully going through every corner of my house and making a pile of stuff we don't need anymore. My next step is reusing! I won't be throwing away this pile of stuff we don't use anymore. My goal is too keep most of it away from our landfills. I will go through it and make sure there is not another use for it either at our house or our farm. My last step for the month is donating. All the stuff that I know we can't reuse will be donated. I have a few plans of where I want to donate this stuff to and let you all know. I will share the rest of my green spring cleaning steps (there are 10) next month.
