Yum Market Finds: Make Earth Day Everyday

This Sunday is Earth Day and I think it's a very important holiday that should not be overlooked. Being respectful of the world we live in is crucial to the survival of the human race and although I'm just one girl who likes to party, I do like to do my part every now and then. As I was looking through the Yum Market I was excited to see that you care about the environment as well, and I felt inspired by your ideas. For example just because you live in an apartment doesn't mean you can't plant a tree. Atkoester suggests purchasing a dwarf meyer lemon tree and I totally plan to take her up on the suggestion! Imagine picking the lemons right off the tree the next time your recipe calls for a little juice or zest, talk about local produce.

Two more green ideas that you submitted so

Fairy_MK found this free Be Green button. Pin this baby to your purse, reusable grocery bag, or backpack and let everyone know you are all for helping the earth live.

Cooking with local and seasonal ingredients is one of the ways that we can eat healthier and improve the environment (some food travels up to 2000 miles before we eat it - if food didn't have to travel think of how much gas we would save...) so sundrops recommends going to your local farmer's market.

Thanks for being so conscious girls! Keep on saving the amazingly aware stuff you find (and use) in the Yum Market. To learn more about how to do so check out geeksugar's how to bookmark guide.
