Earth Month Recipes

Apr 30, 2013

April has been a month of environmental awareness. As Earth Day has blossomed into Earth Week which is part of many Earth Month initiatives, it’s been hard not to pick up a few pieces of sustainability trivia and some green living tips. Now that that Earth Month is winding down, we’ve pulled together some easy ways that you can make an impact in your every day life.

If you’re worried about bringing chemicals into your home, check out this blog post to learn more ways to clean your apartment using healthy and safe ingredients, like white vinegar and baking soda. You can also make a big impact by focusing on fresh, locally grown and produced food.  Choosing local resources can decrease your carbon footprint and help sustain our local economy, so why not prepare something local?

For a night in, here are some easy local snacks for your table:
