5 easy ways to go green in 2020 (and save some money!)

Go green (keep some, too!)

Mother earth is kind to us, so let’s be kind to her! Watch the video for 5 easy ways to go green.

It’s not hard and according to Mary Allen at 6th and Zero, formally 6th Street Soapery, it doesn’t have to completely change your lifestyle. This list of tips is a good start to living better for our earth.

Reduce, reuse, recycle

We’ve all heard this saying, but do we really understand and follow it? First and foremost, we should always strive to reduce the amount of waste we produce. That means saying goodbye to single-use plastics like plastic water bottles or any other food packaging according to Allen.

You can also reduce the amount of plastic packaging that you use by refilling bottles/jugs at local shops.

Grab that empty laundry detergent jug and refill it at 6th and Zero. Not only do they make bar soap, but they also sell laundry detergent by the ounce.

Reuse everything! Buy a reusable water bottle to use daily. Turn that old shirt into cleaning rags. Re-paint that old dresser into something you’ll love again.

Thinking about buying a new outfit? Check out the selection at local re-stores like Plato’s Closet, 2nd Hand Chic, and Molly’s Upscale Consignment Boutique.

Recycling is important, but its best to reduce as much as possible says Allen.

And if you’re in the market for some pure and honest soap, check out the bar soap at 6th Street Soapery. Your skin and nose will thank you. 6th and Zero has a new location in Newburgh. Check out their new space at 108 State Street, Newburgh, Indiana.
