Earth Month Tip #9: Reduce.

You'll see it on Oprah or Dr. Phil - de-clutter your life, simplify it, rid your home of excess stuff. The key is that once you de-clutter your life to keep it that way. This is where the shift in thinking takes place. Ask yourself: Do I really need this? Is there an option that has less packaging or one that's more recyclable? Can I buy this product concentrated? Can I buy it in bulk? Is there a product that serves more than one purpose, thus requiring less stuff? In a nutshell: Buy and use only what you need. Super Easy Step: Buy one product in bulk this month- shampoo, trail mix, whatever. Take your container back every time you need more. Most major markets and stores have bulk aisles.
