Happy Earth Day 2016

From all of our hiking and time spent outdoors, we hope it's pretty obvious that we love the Earth! We even chose an eco-friendly campground/resort when visiting the USVI back in 2005.

Of course, there is a lot more we can do, but we're always trying to find new ways to live just a little more sustainable. A little more green.

Earth Day is April 22nd every year, and it's a good time to reflect on how we're treating our environment and what we can do a little better.

Last week, we shared our tips on how Runners Can Help Save the Earth, but here are a couple other posts filled with tips that you might find helpful.

Rebecca from Strength and Sunshine shares 9 Easy Actions Towards More Sustainable Living.
There are some really great ideas in this post! We never really thought about choosing products with more sustainable packaging (over plastic or cans) or how shopping in bulk can be more sustainable.

Dixya from Food, Pleasure, and Health lists 5 Simple Ways to Live Green
Among her list are things like DIY eco-friendly cleaners. This is something we really need to try! Also, switching from paper towels to wash cloths. We go through so many paper towels (but at least we buy an eco-friendly brand)!!

A lot of these suggestions are just small, simple things that don't necessarily take a lot of time or require huge changes, or sacrifices, in your normal routine, but if everyone did something small it would add up to something big.
