5 Ways to Make Your Life More Green

 

Get a Head Start on Luscious Green Grass

Make your neighbors “green with envy” this St. Patrick’s Day by getting a headstart on a gorgeous yard. It’s surprising how much you can brighten things up by cleaning up some debris, raking or mowing the lawn, and getting your grass aeration done before it starts full regrowth.

 

 

Make a Green Treat to Share with Friends or Family

Who doesn’t love Mcdonald’s Seasonal Shamrock Shake, am I right? Do yourself a favor and grab one, but be sure to also make fun green goodies to share. We love some of the new recipes we’ve seen like Green Crinkle Cookies from Wicked Whisk, Grasshopper Fudge from Sweet Recipeas, or the absolute best Mint Chocolate Chip Pie from Barbara Bakes. With these sweets in hand, you’ll get plenty of those Irish kisses this year.

 

 

Purchase an Indoor Plant…A Real One this Time

Seek out Aloe, Jade, Rubber Trees, or Fiddle Leaf Fig for plants that are incredible home decor options which have a great look and are very easy to care for. The species we’ve listed also come in a range of sizes so you’ll be certain to find something that suits your space, big or small.

 

 

Reuse Glass in Interesting Ways

What we love about this hack is you can BE green while saving green and adding green to your life…get it? Green glass is a classic look, and you’ll find this material at secondhand stores and thrift shops all over. You may even be able to get green wine bottles for free at your favorite restaurant or bar. Use the glass elements you find to organize craft supplies, create an outdoor wind chime, or cut the tops off for a one-of-a-kind glassware set.

 

 

Spruce Up Your Interior with Green

The greatest thing about this color of nature is its universality. Green pairs well with any other color scheme, so it’s always a good time to add in an art piece or some throw pillows with this revitalizing hue. No need to completely redecorate, simply refresh with cost-effective and beautiful green touches.
