earth day ideas
I thought I would post some fun ideas for Earth Day that I’ve seen online and I also have a giveaway and freebie listed at the end of the post!
I couldn’t believe how much the popcorn looks like a tree in this chocolate treat from Hungry Happenings. Love the little fruits, too!
Stephanie Lynn made not one, but THREE awesome Earth Day Treats! A gorgeous dome shaped cake, Cupcakes, even some Krispie Treats — on a stick!
The Chaos Ensued blog makes adorable little planet Earths using colored sugar cookie dough and they turned out great!
The Dollhouse Bake Shoppe made fruit tree cupcakes that use marshmallows and pretzels for the tiny trees.
Tidy Mom shares some Earth Day cookies that she made, very nicely done!

Did you know that when doing laundry, heating water can account for up to 80 percent of the energy used per wash load in the U.S.? If one household switched to washing in cold for one year, they would save enough energy to watch TV for 1,363 hours! Making the switch to washing in cold is an easy change to make with Tide Coldwater, which is specially formulated to get clothes clean in cold water.
