APRIL 2021 | ISSUE NO.4
Dear Friends and Clients,
In April we celebrate Earth Day and here at Adue, because we like to spruce things up, we’d like to refer to Earth Day in our own way and instead call it:
WE HAVE NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR YOU AND YOU’RE THE BEST IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE, EARTH DAY!
As you can see we really love our mother the earth and we think she should be celebrated everyday. We think about the whole aspect of interior design and want to give you some tips on how you can better take care of the mother that we all share.
HAVE YOU LOOKED AT YOUR DAILY HABITS and asked if you’re a helper or a non-helper when it comes to caring for our planet? – And have you ever considered that helping the earth actually HELPS YOU IN RETURN?
Start weaving these simple tips into your daily routine:
1. RECYCLE One of my clients shared this idea with me: You can list your packing materials on Facebook Marketplace and give them away for free. Many people are having to move due to financial hardships and not having to pay for cardboard boxes and bubble wrap is a huge help.
(While we’re on the subject of Facebook Marketplace, you can list anything that has been gently used for free or at a reduced price to help someone in need. Also, paying it forward doesn’t require you to spend money and it will make you feel good! )
2. REUSE Trash Is For Tossers is a wonderful resource website that lists items you can purchase that don’t hurt the planet. They list compostable, wooden dish brushes, solid dish soap bars, reusable dishcloths, reusable to-go mugs, reusable straws, and the list goes on.
They also have earth-friendly recipes, zero waste gift ideas, and earth-minded articles that help educate the public.
3. REDUCE One way you can reduce is by using a bamboo toothbrush! One billion plastic toothbrushes are discarded each year and they can’t be recycled because they get stuck in recycling machinery. For those of you that don’t want to buy online; Natural Grocers, Whole Foods, and Sprouts all carry them in their stores.
The article here will help you to repurpose and/or recycle your bamboo toothbrush. You can also checkout Package Free – they are a zero waste resource for earth-friendly household items such as plastic-free dental floss!
Be inspired to step outside of your box, see if you can recycle it, and in exchange create a more sustainable and earth-friendly living routine.
