Happy Earth Day!

Apr 22nd 2011, 17:00, by Swapsity

Every April 22, we collectively celebrate our environment but it’s what we do the other 364 days of the year that truly honours Earth Day.

Today marks an occasion meant to inspire awareness and appreciation for Mother Earth, reminding everyone to conserve, preserve and save our planet. With a few simple changes to our habits, we can live greener year-round. From your shopping habits and product choices to your beauty regime and household routine, take this time to reflect on your environmental footprint and what you can do to reduce consumption, generate less waste and adopt a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

Need some eco-inspiration? Connect with these green Swapsity members and turn your Earth Day goals into actions:

Green beauty routine
Swap your expensive, chemical-laden store-bought products for greener, safer and more affordable alternatives. Let Bella teach you eco-alterative DIY recipes with ingredients right out of your own cupboard and save money with some planet-friendly treatments.

Eco-lighting
Flip the switch on energy-zapping lights! If you've put off the move to green lighting because you're not impressed with CFLs, help is just a swap away. Reach out to Dmitri for an easy way to reduce carbon emission. He’s offering green lighting solutions and free consultations and is open to any interesting swaps.

Eco-toys
Want to instil green values in your children? Treat them to an eco-toy. Lisa makes stuffed critters out of used materials, recycling donated clothes and stuffed animals.

Eco-painting
Make home improvements the green way! Strike a deal with an eco-conscious professional painter who works only with non-toxic and zero VOC paint.

Eco-packaging
Cut down on packaging that just ends up in the landfill and go reusable! Amanda, an environmentalist at heart, is dedicating to helping others reduce waste and repurpose items perceived as waste. Looking to green your gift? Swap for one of her handmade reusable cloth gift bags for an eco-friendly alternative to wrapping paper.

Eco-cleaning
Want to give your home the clean sweep in an environmentally-friendly way? Melissa is offering eco-conscious residential and commercial cleaning and is open to any interesting swap offers.


As you undertake your eco-endeavours this Earth Day, take some time to think about what you can change in your life to contribute to a cleaner, greener planet for the remaining 364 days.
