Earth Conscious with EcoScraps from Walmart + GIVEAWAY!
This post is sponsored by EcoScraps. All opinions are my own.
I'm not sure if Oregon has rubbed off on me, but I have really come to love having living plants in our apartment. I got my first succulent a little over a year ago, and since then I've purchased a few more.
I accidentally killed my first succulent, I felt so bad! :( Ever since then, I have made sure to read all about how to care for succulents. When it comes to caring for your plants, it's so important to get good soil that will keep the plants alive and well. And of course, living in Oregon, I've learned to be more Earth-conscious than ever ;)
For my two new succulents I used EcoScraps Natural Organic Moist Potting Mix. Ecoscraps products are available at Walmart. EcoScraps recycled 75 million pounds of food waste between 2011 and 2015. In 2016 alone they are projected to another 75 million pounds of food waste! Since 2010 Ecoscraps has been working to be a part solution of the food waste in the United States (we waste 40% of the food produced!). Recycling 15 million pounds of food waste is equivalent to keeping 500,000 cars off the road for an ENTIRE day! To learn more, watch this video here.
I really appreciate their efforts to decrease waste. We also have changed up some habits to be more earth conscious, like not running the water to do dishes or brush our teeth, separate cardboard and plastic to take to the recycle bin instead of putting it in our trash can, and going grocery shopping weekly so that food doesn't go bad as quickly and we can actually finish the food before throwing it out. Little habits make a big difference!
The Potting Mix can be used in container gardening anytime of the year. If you are growing houseplants or flowers and want to save as much potting mix as possible, you can replace 1/3 of the old potting mix with new potting mix between growing seasons.
I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty.. haha
