Let’s Go Green Together

So lately I’ve been trying to think of ways to “go green”, and I started something I’d like to share with you all.  I’ve been collecting glass bottles and using them around the house- they look very unique, and I actually think they look nice.

I put a few stones at the bottom of each one (I have TONS), and then filled it up with water and a few drops of flower food, and added the flowers- pretty simple.  For those of you who don’t have any or don’t want to buy it, here is a simple recipe for flower food:

1 tsp. sugar; 1 tsp. bleach; 2 tsp. lemon or lime juice (fresh is best).  I mixed mine with some water, put it in a plastic water bottle (go green!), and I keep it under my sink.  That way, you can keep using it.

When you put it in the vase with your flowers, you’ll need to change out the water every so often- whenever it turns colors (always a bad sign haha) or when it gets down to about half full.  Or half empty, depending on your philosophical outlook :)

So that’s that!  I’ll be back soon with more ways to use glass bottles.  In the meantime, enjoy sprucing up your homes with some flowers while saving the environment!
