Hey guys, did you know this Friday is Earth Day? Are you planting a tree in celebration? I’d love to, but our backyard is far from being landscape ready. I do have something fun in the works for the backyard, but that’s a topic for another day. In celebration of Earth Day and being kind to the environment, I thought it would be fun to share my top 10 Earth Friendly DIY’s for Earth Day.
These are some of my favorite ways that we try to do our part in taking care of the environment. While I wouldn’t call myself crunchy, not by a long stretch, I can say that my family makes an effort to be good stewards when and where we can.
Because we have lots of neighbors.
Like this fellow.
This is one of my best shots, ever. We were almost eye to eye:)
My top 10 earth friendly DIYs for Earth Day
Make reusable grocery bags. They hold a lot more than plastic ones, are super strong and washable.
Create a low maintenance butterfly garden in your yard or in containers with just a few butterfly loving plants. We have Monarch Butterflies in the garden every day, and I can’t tell you how wonderful it is!
I get rid of bugs inside and outdoors without using chemicals. This natural bug killer won’t harm wildlife or animals.
If you like cleaning with a vinegar mix, you’ll love this Citrus Peel Cleaner Recipe!
I stopped using fabric softener a long time ago but want soft clothes. I made my own DIY Felted Dryer Balls with wool. my family loves them too!
Easily clean silver with a few ingredients from your kitchen.
Re-purpose an old bed headboard to make a great DIY bench.
Save used glass candle holders and use them again by giving them a new purpose.
Paint vintage books and make them part of your home decor.
These were my top 10 earth friendly DIYs for Earth Day. I know I could have added so many more, but these were my favorite.

Hi Morgan, You will love using DE. Be patient it takes a few days for the creepy crawlies to go away, but they do. It’s nice to have something that works and won’t harm anything else. Thanks for your visit!

Great projects and tips from you as always.

These are all great ideas, Wendi!
Hi Amy & thank you:) It was fun looking at my projects to pick a few. I realized, for a lot of us bloggers, we do pretty earth friendly projects with lots of repurposing. Thanks for your visit & have a good weekend:)
What a close up that dolphin photo!
I brought spring in as a way to celebrate earth day (and make our home pretty at one go). Had missed the post of the DE; great tip and I will keep it in mind for our garden!
Hi & thank you:) That dolphin photo is by far one of my best shots, ever! You’ll love using the DE, especially because it’s safe around little ones and animals. We do our best not to use any harmful chemicals. This was a lifesaver when I found it. Happy Earth Day & thanks as always for your visit!
