Composting 101Composting 101

Have you ever noticed how some people have beautiful, vibrant flower gardens or grow large, scrumptious looking vegetables almost with ease? They might have a green thumb, but chances are it better that it's their soil. If you use compost, your soil has a richer composition that is better for your veggies and flowers. This healthy and sturdy soil produces those gorgeous flowers and mouth-watering vegetables we all wish we could have in our own gardens. Guess what? Now you can have them. It just takes a little know-how about composting.

Decrease Your Family's Disposable WasteDecrease Your Family's Disposable Waste

Who wants to wash dishes? It is a chore everyone tries to avoid, but in an effort to make house cleaning less of a chore, we are polluting our earth with garbage that won’t go away. Help your environment by limiting the items you throw away.

Eco-Friendly Cleaning ProductsEco-Friendly Cleaning Products

You could be polluting your home without even knowing it. Some of the chemicals we use to clean affect the air inside our homes in negative ways. If you knew that when you were cleaning you were actually putting your family's health at risk, wouldn't you want to make a change? Many people believe that in order to be clean, the house has to smell like a bleach (or other cleaning product) factory. This is not the case at all. You can choose environmentally friendly cleaning products to keep your home clean and your family safe without the "knock you down at the door" smell of some of the commercial cleaning products on the market.

Hold a Family Swap MeetHold a Family Swap Meet

In these tough economic times, families are looking for ways to save money while still getting the things that they need. One way is to develop a trading system like the family swap meet. In case you don't know what a swap meet is, it's a place where you trade goods. It goes back to the bartering system of trading. To save a little dough, host a swap meet for your family members.

Institute a Family Chore DayInstitute a Family Chore Day

No one likes to clean up - especially the kids. Instead of fighting with your family to get it done, or worse, doing all the work yourself, create a day when everyone pitches in and gets the job done fast. A family chore day gets everyone involved in taking care of the home. You all live there so it is everyone's responsibility to keep it looking nice. Family chore day can be all day or just in the morning. It's best to start in the morning when the entire family is peppy and fresh. That way, the afternoon is left for other more fun activities.

Teach the Family to RecycleTeach the Family to Recycle

In our fast paced world, it is easy to ignore that every day we are adding to our mounting waste. For many, the fact that the landfill is nowhere near us, it's easy not to think about how full it is getting. Teaching your family to recycle helps to combat this problem, even if you don't realize how bad it might be. Just because you don't see the problem on a daily basis doesn't mean it does not exist.
