Use Soap Nuts to wash your clothes; once you are finished with them you can use them to create cleaning liquid then compost them.
Reusing & Recycling Stuff Around The Home
Use old material scraps for curling ribbon and toilet paper wrapper to wrap presents and bath bombs.
Wash your veggies in a large bowl, instead of having the tap running. It’s amazing how much water you’ll save then use that water in the garden, instead of tipping down the sink.
Put a bucket in the shower and use that water for the garden and plants.
Keep your showers short and only use appliances like the washing machine and dishwasher when it’s full.
Reusing coffee grinds in the garden and as a body scrub in the shower gives them a new lease of life.
Remember to continue to educate yourself and help others on the journey. We are all on a journey so let’s help everyone get there and be that advocate of change. If you have other ideas pop them in the comments.
