I am not going to get all green on you, I will leave that to Kermit The Frog, LOL, but I am going to talk Earth Day 2014. Earth Day is April 22 and it is time to celebrate the Earth. How we respect our Earth, the space we live in, determines how the land will survive for your kids and family as time passes along. Throw a wrapper on the ground and there it stays, there is not a mom or dad buzzing behind you to clean up your mess, clean it up yourself, throw it away in the right place and keep our earth clean and beautiful. Beyond not littering, reducing and recycling there are other things we can all do and many of us do already to keep our earth, beautiful.
Have you heard of yerdle? This is a new type of store where you give and get things for free. This is APP accessible via the iOS app, and the store houses thousands of items – from kid’s toys, outdoor gear, and kitchenware to Patagonia jackets– all given by other yerdle users or brand partners and available to other members.
Now, if you are a giver you are known as a ‘yerdler’. Take that new name on, embrace it, and clean out what you would potentially throw out and fill up our trash receptacles with. The yerdlers making it happen are so invested in Earth Day, that their entire mission is to eliminate 25 percent of new merchandise sales by making it easy for people to recycle formerly loved goods for what they really need from others willing to lend it or give it away. So, if you have not figured this out yet, yerdle is a community-based market place, users are able to set the credits and shipping price, as they please. More often than not, there are name brand treasures weaved throughout the yerdle site making the site itself a hidden jewel.
How else can you Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce waste on our Earth? Take a look at what I have rounded up for you in recognition of Earth Day.
o iRecycle helps find local, convenient recycling opportunities on the go or at home. With access to more than 1.5 million ways to recycle over 350 materials, iRecycle can tell you how, where and when to recycle just about anything. Using your current location or typing in an address, users can get details on collection points, directions, hours of operation and other materials collected.
· Reuse: yerdle, free for iOS
o What’s old to you is new to someone else! yerdle is the first national sharing retailer for iOS, allowing people to give and get things for free. Rather than throwing away your lightly-used, never to be worn and seen again items, you can STOP LANDFILL PILE-UP withyerdle – consumers now have a quick place to share, trade and “shop” for stuff – all they pay is a flat shipping rate, $2-4.
· Reduce: My Carbon Footprint, free for iOS
o My Carbon Footprint shows how your everyday choices impact the world around you, symbolized within the app by your own little slice of planet. The app’s goal is to get people talking about the impact of carbon emissions and provide users with visual reminders – tips, badges, social integration – that our lifestyle choices affect the world around us.
Gear up for earth day, clean out, clean up, reduce, recycle and reuse, do your Earth Good! Happy Earth Day 2014.
