Earth Day is a great time to stop and reflect on the place we call home. As they say, we're merely temporary guests living on mama earth's big blue world but that doesn't mean we can't leave it better for the next generation. If everyone on the planet took to heart how fragile our planet's well-being truly is, we could all do a little something extra to make the earth a healthier, happier place.
So you bought a cute Ryan Porter candle and spent hours and hours enjoying her. Sadly, the time has finally come: all of the (100% soy!) wax has melted and the candle is finished....or is she? A simple way to reuse and recycle is to clean out the jar and use it for storage. Makeup brushes, office supplies or even just loose change fit perfectly into a used candle jar. Plus, you'll have the sassy label to cherish forever and ever!
Stick to the Basics and RECYCLE!
Recycling is an incredibly easy and efficient way to better the earth each and everyday. Did you know the EPA estimates nearly 75% of the American waste stream is recyclable? - but we only recycle about 30% of it. Another fact: only about 25% of the plastic produced in the U.S. gets recycled.
