With the change in the season, so comes a change in lifestyle. Many of us travel in the summer, enjoy backyard barbecues, camping trips, and days lounging at the pool. For others, not much changes, other than just spending more time outdoors. Either way, I think it is safe to say that there are many new and different ways we can make one small change in the summer months. If you are planning to participate in June, here is a list I put together of ideas.
-Use a natural or home made bug spray and/or sunscreen
-Start a garden
-Bring reusable or compostable utensils and plates on camping trips
-Try to eliminate grassy areas in your yard with things that don't need watering
-On hot days put your blinds down when sun is coming in and open your windows on cool evenings to keep your house cooler
-If you have a sprinkler system, check it regularly to make sure it is working properly
-Ride your bike more often instead of driving
-Buy local food at farms or farmers markets
-Use a reusable water bottle
Here are some great ideas...if you have any other summer time change ideas, please leave a comment and let us know!
