Monday Faves: Eco Friendly

Happy Monday! :) I hope you had a fabulous weekend :) We ended up having a last minute yard sale Saturday morning (haha! :) We decided Thursday night) and did really well giving some of our things new homes and meeting lots of people :) Yard sales are always a great way to meet people! :)

April 22 is Earth Day :) So in celebration of taking care of this beautiful planet, Earth, this week will be all about eco-friendly ideas.

I get so excited to reuse and repurpose items! I will be sharing a tutorial on a fellow blogger's blog later this week about a fun way to repurpose old clothes that are no longer wearable for whatever reason - too worn, rips or tears that aren't mendable, stains that even oxi-clean won't get out... you get the idea :) I'll share a link once that is up :)

I will also be sharing some great links about reusable grocery bags (and where you can find some for free!) and some links about ideas for being more eco-friendly in our day-to-day, and making everyday Earth Day :)

Do you have any eco-friendly ideas or links you'd like to share? I'd love to hear from you! Email me ( or leave a comment with a link and I'd love to share them in this Friday's post :)

So for my faves this week, I was looking around on etsy for eco-friendly, recycled, upcycled and repurposed items and found some fabulous items. My searches: eco-friendly, recycled, upcycled. Enjoy! :)
