Spring Cleaning!

As we experience warmer weather and begin to break out those shorts, sunnies, and sundresses, we tend to go throughout our old stuff in the process. Here are some tips to make your spring cleaning a bit more environmentally friendly!

Grab your friends!

Friends help make the work go faster, for sure! But sometimes they might find your trash their treasure. Instead of taking all of your old stuff to the trash, give salvageable things away to your pals!

Sort, sort, sort!

I get it, you don’t wanna do extra, but its RecycleMania! Make a game out of it! Sort the plastics with the little recycling symbol on them and carry them to the nearest recycling bin! You can clean you your space without causing more clutter in the environment.

Give it and potentially get it

Clothes don’t fit your fashion anymore? Donate them or take them in to thrift stores to get money back! Wether it be your heart or your wallet, you feel a little fuller afterwards.

Repurpose!

Get a little crafty and creative with that old jug of Arizona iced tea and make a cute pot for your new succulent garden.

 

Make it yours and keep it green!

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” This quote from Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax will always be one of my all-time favorite quotes because no words could be truer. Originating from the little town of Minersville in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, I’m well aware of the environmental impacts a community can impose. Firstly, we have orange creeks from acid mine drainage. Second, we have significant amounts of farmland. Thirdly, Smokey Bear is literally our best friend. I realized that I wanted to do something to fix our environmental problems and help preserve our natural resources, so I decided to major in environmental sciences at Albright College. I’m currently a sophomore, so I’ll graduate in 2020. For the 2017-2018 school year, I am living in Albright’s Sustainability House, which is a campus house that is dedicated to living as sustainably as possible as a college student. I decided to take up the challenge because I can utilize what I learn for my future as well as to teach others how to be a neighbor of Mother Nature.
