Depending on where you live, it may not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner. Here are six reminders that it’s spring time.

Market Bags & Reusable Totes

Many farmers’ markets start up again, bringing fresh, local produce to your neighborhood. Recycled tote bags save waste, look great, and let you carry home your greens in style. If you don’t have a reusable market bag, get one today, you won’t be sari!

Spring Cleaning

It may not be anyone’s favorite thing about spring, but there’s lots you can do to get organized, donate your worn out winter gear and clear some space before taking on spring and summer projects.

3Rs of Spring: Rain, Rabbits, and Roses

The rain is here to stay for a few more months. Protect yourself from spring downpours with a recycled umbrella, and be sure to recycle broken umbrellas.

Before you know it, it will also be Mother’s Day! It’s never to early to start thinking about a gesture to let her know you care. Be a responsible daughter or son, and give your mom fair trade flowers. Or better yet, craft her a bouquet of recycled paper flowers that will last all year long!
