Reusable loofah sponges are an eco-friendly alternative for cleaning that can be composted after use. These sponges are made from natural materials and can be used for various cleaning tasks, including dishes, countertops, and bathroom surfaces.
By using reusable loofah sponges, you can reduce waste and contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle.
When it's time to dispose of them, simply add them to your compost bin or pile, where they will break down naturally over time. This not only helps to reduce landfill waste but also enriches the soil with organic matter.
Make the switch to reusable loofah sponges for a greener and cleaner home....
We love this recipe for homemade Elderberry syrup! It's great for what ails you and is a great helper during the seasonal sniffles.
"Elderberry syrup is made from berries of the Sambucus tree that’s native to Europe. The sour-tasting berries are commonly used to make jelly, pie, and wine, but they've also been a staple of folk medicine for hundreds if not thousands of years.
Elderberry syrup is known as a powerful cold preventative and remedy. Just one cup of berries contains about 58% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. It’s also a great source of antioxidants — which may protect your cells from damage and help prevent heart disease and cancer. " - @webmd

Switching to reusable paper towels is a great way to save money and reduce waste. Instead of constantly buying disposable paper towels, you can invest in reusable ones that can be washed and used over and over again.
These reusable towels are typically made from sustainable materials like cotton or bamboo, making them better for the environment. While the upfront cost may be higher, the long-term savings are significant.
By properly caring for your reusable paper towels, such as rinsing them out after each use and washing them with your regular laundry when they get dirty, you can make them last even longer. Overall, making the switch to reusable paper towels is a wise choice that benefits both your wallet and the planet.
So why not give them a try and see how much you can save in the long run?...
Fast fashion has doubled clothes production since the year 2000, but clothing is worn for increasingly shorter periods. This leads to an even greater increase in clothing waste.
How can you help? Buy upcycled, recycled, and thrifted clothing. Look for local sustainable places to shop. Attend clothing swaps or just trade out closets with your friends and family! Like @positive_phee in San Diego.
From @earthorg , "Approximately 92 million tonnes of the 100 billion garments produced each year end up in landfills. The excessive waste overwhelms disposal facilities, forcing illegal dumping..."
