Do One Thing and  we can create  change. The earth relies on each one of us. Today is Earth Day, what will you do to help? Just one change makes a difference.

Plant more trees & flowers to help balance the air. Carbon Based figures now outweigh the plant based, thereby causing our air to be out of balance. The plants consume what we exhale. And we inhale what the plants exhale. Help bring this back into balance.

Use more earth friendly produ

cts in your yard. You can kill weeds with water & vinegar, instead of using a chemical weed killer. Mix 1/4 vinegar with 3/4 water. Spray on dry weed on a hot sunny day. The sun will interact with the vinegar killing the roots of the weed. Or you can buy the finished product.

Water – put out some pots or cans to collect rainwater and use that water to water your plants and/or vegetables. Or you can buy a rain barrel, which collects water from your gutters. If you want to do more, you can put in a grey water system, which collects “grey” water from your house pipes.

Remove mosquitoes using earth friendly products.  Use some of the following plants in a planter that is stationed where you sit. These plants naturally repel mosquitoes.  Basil, rosemary, citronella, lemongrass
