Choose To Reuse With Zak! Earth Day 04/22/19

I have received products and information in order to facilitate this post.

Earth Day 2019 is almost here!  We always look forward to Earth Day.   It gives us a chance to remind ourselves and our children just how important it is to reuse, recycle, upcycle etc…  We need to leave this earth better than it was when we got here and it is a monumental task but each of us truly can make a difference.

Zak! has continual been a household name for us.  They have so much of what we  want and need to be able to reuse and be as environmental friendly as possible.  We need to stop using so many items that are disposable.  So much of what is “disposable” is not biodegradable and it has to go somewhere.  Decades and centuries of disposables have left such a negative footprint on our world.  We need to stop and think and act.

Join us in the 30 day pledge.  It takes 30 days for actions to become a habit.  Starting on Earth Day 2019 (4/22) let’s all make conscious decisions to reuse.  Zak can help – check out this Alfalfa Tumbler which is a stainless steel double-wall, vacuum insulated tumbler.  Perfect for the person who is “on the go”.  It is even available in pink, blue or black.

We also try to use reusable bags whenever we go to the store.  First of all those plastic store bags rip and are a waste of time anyway.  And I need ten of those disposable plastic bags for each ONE reusable bag.  With three flights of stairs to climb bringing in groceries – I’ll take the reusable bag of those awful plastic bags any day.

My grandson is even loving is reusable bracelet and necklace thanks to Zak!  Problem is the sun is too bright for him to open his eyes!

Are you ready to take the pledge?
