Reducing Our #EverydayEffect Taking The P&G Conserve-It-All Challenge

Right off the bat, I have a confession to make. My family did not/does not do much to eliminate waste. When we lived in our 3rd story condo, it was impossible to recycle {unless I wanted to load up the kids AND the recyclable in the van and drive them out myself. A.K.A. Not enough hands}. We found it much easier to put everything in the same bag and take it down to the same dumpster whenever necessary.

P&G with SheSpeaks asked me to think about how I could cut back on the waste my household creates and share those ideas with you.

Since moving to our house, I've become even more aware of the waste we have as a family and am tapping into the city's resources to help cut those down. Our goals are to recycle and begin composting.

My city offers help with recycling in the form of a bin. We can fill that bin up every week and they'll come pick it up from us. It really doesn't get any easier than that. And for composting, I've found all sorts of ideas on how to compost, how to use compost, and even DIY compost bins over at Pinterest.

I'm excited to take these new strides and show my little ones how to take care of the earth as a family.

Other ideas to cut back on waste is by using reusable paper towel, cloth diapers, using energy efficient light bulbs and appliances...and that's just the beginning of the list.

Do you have some ideas to share? Head over to the P&G Facebook page, share your ideas with them, and enter to win a washing machine!
