{ tempting me tuesday: eco friendly finds }

Happy Earth Day!

Admittedly, I have never been what you would call an environmentalist. I've recently been trying to change that by really making an effort to become more aware of my own personal impact on the environment while also taking steps to adopt a more green, eco-friendly lifestyle. Living a greener existence can feel overwhelming...where to start, what to do. That's why I love Real Simple's Green Living 101 guide– it's an excellent resource for getting started quickly and easily. Check out some of their simple tips here and here.

And more good news...going green can be as simple as finding new uses for old things. Yes, our love and use of vintage finds is good for the planet. Who knew? So instead of buying new, new, new...try going vintage next time. { See, that wasn't hard }. 

In honor of Earth Day, I will be sharing another reclaim | repurpose | refresh feature with you all this week. For now I leave you with some of my favorite, eco-friendly finds...
