Avoid Plastic Bags – Remember Your Reusable Shopping Totes
Make sure to bring your reusable shopping bags every time you shop. If you do have to utilize plastic bags reuse them for trash or save them and bring them to a local recycling facility.  Most supermarkets have bins available to drop these bags. Did you know companies are using these recycled plastic bags to make art, clothing and more? And you can even do it yourself.  Get some ideas here

If you missed your chance last month to get Tunie’s adorable new reusable shopping bag you’ve got another shot. Spend $50 or more on Earth Day and get yours free!

Switch to Earth Friendly Products
Look for products free of toxins and harsh chemicals.  It’s better for the planet and better for you and your family.  You can find many options at Tunie’s or check out the simple recipe here for making your own using non-toxic inexpensive household ingredients.

Grow Something Green!
Plant a tree in your yard, or grow some herbs and vegetables inside or out!  You’ll add oxygen to the planet and your home, create beauty and have super fresh delicious plant based foods for your table!

Give up Bottled Water
Bottled water consumes huge amounts of fossil fuels to produce and transport, and most of those recyclable water bottles end up in landfills. Get yourself a refillable and permanent water bottle to carry with you. You’ll save money on the cost of all those water bottles, too!

Buy Local!
Locally grown food is easier on the environment and taste better too! Tunie’s offers several local natural products and produce from local growers.

Go Paperless
Bills come in many forms — mostly on paper. But many bill-paying services offer an option to pay online.

Finally Remember That Every Day is Earth Day.  
Anything to help our environment is a perfect thing to do on Earth Day and every day. Don’t restrict yourself to just one day a year; learn about how you can make a difference to all year long.  It’s going to take a lot of work to heal our planet. Leading by example will help others remember that the earth is important every day!
