Coffee cozies are a great start to being eco-friendly. You can use them in the place of the paper sleeves that you get with you coffee at the coffee shop. They are so stylish too. A great way to express your uniqueness and sense of style while drinking that hot cup of of coffee (or tea). I didn't have the heart to throw away these pieces of fabric with such great prints.
These make great gifts and stocking stuffers for the upcoming holidays. You can find a great selection of coffee cozies at Chic Boutique on etsy.

Here are some quick green tips that I use daily:
- Use old newspaper to clean windows instead of paper towels. It is actually has better absorption and cleans better.
- Don't dump out that water you didn't finish! Use it to water plants.
- Another use for newspaper is to use it when you ship packages instead of using bubble wrap or tissue paper.
- In order to save energy I use a power strip that I can turn off and on when charging equipment such as computers, cell phones, etc.
- Unplugging electrical equipment that I don't use often such as coffee pot, can opener, microwave, toaster, etc.
- Don't throw away that empty water bottle! Fill it with water and freeze it. Use it to keep your lunchbox or cooler cool.
These are just a few simple ways that you can add green living routines in your daily activities.

Paper Tree Stationery has a collection of mini journals made with blank recycled paper. Chic, eco-friendly, and fun. They are small enough to put in your purse, backpack, car, or anywhere convenient where you may need to jot down a quick note. These are great for back to school, as gifts, or stock up for yourself. You never know when you may need one.

I love to create items from recycled paper as well as find new uses for items instead of throwing them away. I won't lie and say I am totally an eco-conscious person, but I do do my best. I believe that if we all try by doing our part, even if it a small one, we will change this world to a better place. I look forward to sharing fun projects I have done, tips that I find, and items that I have made for my shop Paper Tree Stationery. Enjoy!
