Tip of the Day:

I spoke about going green. Now it’s very important to be aware of what you can do to help even in some small way the environment and it not only helps you, but your pocket too. So here are those tips…

1. Food - Grow your own. This isn’t a short term solution to going green, but it’s a good way to cut your food bill and your food miles in one foul swoop.

2. Cleaning - Green cleaning products are expensive. Next time you have to buy a cleaning spray, creams or bleach, instead buy yourself some cheap distilled vinegar, bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) and soda crystals and you’ll be able to tackle any cleaning task. You will be spending less, and reducing your exposure to nasty chemicals by changing your cleaning products to the good old-fashioned stuff.

3. Compost - Composting your food waste only applies if you have a garden, but it doesn’t have to be a big garden. You don’t even need a compost bin to compost.

4. Save Energy - Switch off lights when you leave the room, and switch off appliances/chargers when they’re not in use. Close your curtains as dusk to keep the heat in.

5. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Do you really need it? Could you do without it? It’s worth asking yourself this question every time you consider buying something. Reuse plastic bags as rubbish bags, or take them back to the shop and use them to carry your groceries home again. If you’re creative and can knit or crochet, make a reusable bag out of your plastic bags and use them for years.

6. Transport - Cycling is a very economical way to get around, no bus or train fares, no fuel to buy and no need to pay for parking. If you don’t have a bicycle. Cycling is good for the environment (no carbon emissions and no pollution) and good for you too, and it’s cheaper than going to a gym.

Quote of the Day:

George Bernard Shaw - If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance

It’s time for me to love and leave you. You must have oh so super Thursday. Let’s chat again tomorrow…Much Love…Peace.
