Can you believe we are already in week three of the SCOTT Naturals 4-Week Test Drive? This Earth month, SCOTT Naturals has challenged consumers to take the SCOTT Naturals pledge to switch to SCOTT Naturals products for just four weeks.
If everyone participated in this simple change, we could save 2 million trees! By switching to SCOTT Naturals™ hybrid line, which features bath tissue, paper towels, flushable moist wipes and napkins made with a blend of virgin material and at least 20% recycled material in products or packaging, you are taking one small step towards a greener Earth.
The state with the highest amount of participation in the 4-Week Test Drive will receive a $50,000 donation towards local an forest conservation efforts! It’s just another easy way one small step can lead to a big change. Pennsylvania is currently int he TOP 5! Let’s get those pledges in so our state has a better chance at winning!
Besides using products that combine the green benefits of recycled fiber with high quality, like SCOTT Naturals™, there are other ways to live a little bit greener.
Hen’s 4 Tips for Greener Gardening
Our family enjoys tending to a small garden every year. Growing some of our own food gives us the opportunity to connect with nature and enjoy the freshest possible vegetables. Here are four very simple ways to garden a little greener.
1. Use household trash as seed starter pots – Instead of buying plastic pots to plant our seedlings in use SCOTT Naturals toilet paper and paper towel tubes to use as seed pots. We also use egg shells from our free range chickens to plant herb seeds in.
When we do buy pots at the store, we make sure that they are biodegradable and safe to plant in the ground along with our seedlings. Using recyclable materials as seed starters enriches the soil in your garden each year.
2. Make a recycled terrarium greenhouse – For a fun craft with the kids, use a rinsed and dried orange or milk carton, some old straws, masking tape and clear bags that bread, cookies, cereal or SCOTT Naturals have come packaged in to make a mini greenhouse for a few seedlings.
3. Start a compost pile – There are countless tutorials on building a compost pile online. A compost pile is easy to maintain and will yield nutrient-rich soil from all of your household food scraps (don’t add meat or dairy to your pile or it will get rancid) and used paper products like SCOTT Naturals paper towels and napkins.
4. Plant a little something for the birds – By growing a few sunflowers and a small plot of wildflowers, like Bee Balm, we are adding beauty to our yard while providing a great natural resource for wild birds and even the honey bees!
