Celebrate Earth Day All Month Long!

Throughout the month of April (and beyond!), we will be sharing ways to practice the other R’s (refuse, reduce, reuse, repair, rent, rot, etc.) as blog posts and on our Facebook page in order to decrease resources and materials going to the landfill but also to decrease the amount of recyclables you’ll have to hold onto until we resume recycling again.

To kick us off, we are sharing our Earth Day craft calendar to keep all of the kiddos and creative types happy and busy — you can find a PDF version to print by clicking here: [ddownload id=”21184″].
