Green Your Home Gift Basket
April is Earth Month, let’s celebrate by giving away a Green Your Home gift basket.
You know me, it’s a green day in our home every day. I’m passionate about recycling, reusing, repurposing.
I’m a little obsessed about recycling, actually.
Here is an example from today: I replaced our shower curtain. It’s a non-toxic one, naturally, not one of those stinky ones that outgas all kinds if fumes.
Instead of throwing out the old shower curtain, I’ll reuse it to protect our floors during my painting projects, like I did for this project when I repainted our cabinet.
And I went as far as cutting out the three magnets on the bottom of the curtain so I can reuse them to make DIY magnets.
Living a greener life is easy, but some people are still intimidated and don’t know where to start. Don’t worry, making small changes is so easy!
A friend of ours just moved into a new house and I was putting together a gift baskets for her new house, and then I decided to make her a Green Your Home gift basket as a homewarming gift.
She knows how passionate I am about using non-toxic products in our home and eating organic food, and she often asks me for product suggestions and how to reduce chemicals in her home.
I’m making it easy for her: I filled a whole gift basket with my favorite non-toxic, eco-friendly products so she can green her home.
Want to help someone in your life to get away from harsh, unhealthy products?
Make a Green Your Home gift basket!
Suggestions for items in the “Green Your Home” Gift Basket:
- non-toxic, natural deodorant
- non-toxic cleaning products
- organic sunscreen (my every-day sunscreen is Keys Solar Rx)
- cute dish towel
- non-toxic soy candle
- mason jar with flowers
- basket, large glass jar, or other container
I ended up adding a vintage booklet about the many uses of vinegar. People back in the day knew how to clean their whole house with just water, vinegar, and baking soda!
And I also added one of my handmade soy wax candles in a teacup. Many commercial candles are made with unhealthy wax, but I only use the best, non-toxic soy wax.
