DAY 163 | Compost Vacuum Dust

I was researching composting and came across a mega list of compostable items. On there was vacuum dust. It never occurred to me that the dirt picked up from our floors don’t have to be thrown away. Now I don’t have a compost pile, and I’m not planning on having one. But I saw a

DAY 162 | Go to Farms and Farmer’s Markets

My area is weird. We’re in the south yet our town’s farmer’s market only runs June – September. Up in PA it was May – October!!! What is up with that? Anyway, I won’t be making it there during this challenge, but I would like to visit a farm and buy some produce there! Buying

DAY 161 | No Canned Beverages

My drinking situation keeps getting smaller. I first gave up plastic bottled water then other drinks in plastic and now I’m giving up canned beverages. Canned beverages are GREAT!! And the better option than plastic. They are easier to recycle. But recycling is not the answer to zero waste. So we should strive to recycle

DAY 160 | Use 100% recycled / Individually Wrapped Toilet Paper

Some people shudder at the thought of… recycled toilet paper. But I don’t mind. So I’m going to be making the switch to recycled toilet paper even if it means going against what the family usually buys. Now, I think the better choice would be to buy toilet paper individually wrapped in paper regardless if

DAY 159 | Use Solar When Possible

Ever since I was 16 I always wanted a solar panel. I’ve always thought they were SO DAMN COOL!! And I am so EXCITED!!! Because I’m finally getting one! It’s a solar panel bank that will charge my phone and other devices. I can’t wait to use the sun’s power for my tech 🙂

DAY 158 | Rechargeable Batteries

This is my husband’s most anticipated change! The only thing that has been holding us back from getting rechargeable batteries is that we have a lot of battery usage. And we have many different TYPES of batteries. This means it’s going to be expensive. So I guess the best way to do it is to

DAY 157 | Bottle Brush

After a while bottle brush turns super gross. Unfortunately, the ones I’ve been using have been plastic. So I will be switching to a bamboo bottle brush.

DAY 156 | Plant a Tree and Other Plants

Planting a tree is a fun experience that is also beneficial to the environment. I will be planting a tree either through a charity network or my family’s yard. I am also gardening and planting berry bushes. More greenery for the yard and more berries for smoothies!!

DAY 155 | Donate to Environmental Organizations

I want to start supporting amazing organizations that are doing their best to help the environment. Feel free to add awesome organizations below! Here are some to get us started: Arbor Day Foundation, The Conservation Fund, Flight 93 Memorial for their reforestation efforts… What are some more?

DAY 154 | Empty and Clean Filters

This is more of a Brandon job, but I can up my nagging so it gets done, lol! This applies to vents, coils, lint traps, and filters. From the fridge, dryer, air conditioner, and vacuum, I’m making sure they are clean. Making sure vents and filters are cleared lets the appliance work more efficiently and
