This weeks show focuses on simple changes we can make to embrace Earth Day in our own home. Simple changes that do not take much time, energy or planning. These tips will take the excuses out of why we haven’t started reducing our food waste, shopping smarter or repurposing when we can. I know for years I thought it would take too much time to purposefully take steps to protect the world in which we live but I was wrong. Using more efficient light bulbs, keeping my thermostat set at a constant setting, cutting down on food waste and using no more than what I need in life was easier than I thought it would be.
Companies like Earthbound Farm Organics are doing everything they can to reduce packaging and providing consumers with clean, sustainable products that we can trust. I love the conbvenience oif reaching into the crisper and getting a handful of arugula for a meal that I didn’t have to wash, trim or worry about. My favorite lettuce blend is Zen Blend from EBF.
This is not a paid endorsement-I just love the convenience and peace of mind their brand affords me in the kitchen!
