St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and maybe you're looking for some ideas for celebrating this Irish in you. Sure, there's the usual green beer or shamrock shake. But how about doing something really green this year? Something that helps our environment. The kind of green that goes beyond beverages and makes a difference for the planet. We're all about being green here at Botanical PaperWorks so today we'll share some ways to have a very green St. Patrick's Day: 1) As Spring approaches and the weather is warming up, how about going outside for an hour and picking up garbage? You'll get some fresh air while sprucing up the neighborhood. 2) Make it a green and eco St. Patrick's Day by going through your bathroom cleaning supplies and responsibly disposing of the toxic junk. Replace it with a natural solution of baking soda and water. Mix both into a paste and use to scrub the bathtub and sink. No harmful chemicals for you or your loved ones to breathe. 3) Add some purifying green to your office or home with a few plants. NASA has recommended these houseplants as excellent air purifiers: Boston fern, English ivy, Weeping fig and Rubber plant. Better air is better for our body, plus the green plants are great as a decorating accent. What are your ideas for having a green St. Patrick's Day? Please post them and we'll share them in a future post.
