At The Craft Corner, we try to provide you with a variety of gifts and kids craft kits from our online gift and craft store that will put a smile on every face. The products we sell are all unique so it shouldn’t be any surprise that we’re interested in being eco-friendly at the same time.
With another new year here, we thought it might be appropriate to refresh some green home tips that you can put on your refrigerator or memorize. We thought it would be a great idea to make your New Year’s resolution doing your part to save the planet.
Choose to Plant a Herb Garden
If you want to be unique among your neighbours, adopting a source for your own food is a great way to start. This is an excellent way to teach your kids how to be eco friendly and a herb garden is also an outstanding way to flavour all of your family’s dinners.
Here’s a tip for starting the outdoor garden and protecting some seeds from pesky squirrels and other hungry critters. If you use a toilet paper roll to protect the seeds when they first start to grow, you’ll be able to keep them safe. Best of all, these cheap seed protectors break down over time so you’re not compromising any of your green values.
Build a Homemade Compost Bin
The kids craft kits that we supply are all designed to create a positive atmosphere. Going green will do the same and creating your own compost bin takes only a few minutes. All you need is a few pieces of wood, a trash can and a drill bit. If you place the trash can on a platform and drill holes in the side, you’ve effectively created your own compost bin.
Some things that you can to do lead a green life are simpler than you might have imagined. For example, if you leave your electric lights off for as long as possible and your curtains and blinds open to let in natural light, you’ll be doing your part to save the planet.
All the cars on our roads are another source of mass pollution. If you slow down and drive at the speed limit wherever you go, you’ll be doing your part. If you combine all of your chores for one week into one trip in the car, you’ll be lessening your carbon footprint even more.
Why not take a few minutes to check out the unique gifts at our online craft store? None of them are mass-produced so they won’t create a big carbon footprint. Don’t forget our kids craft kits.
