Make A Natural Difference with NPCA + Recipe and Giveaway

products_header

The new year is here which makes it the perfect time to initiate eco-friendly changes to create a natural difference! Head over to this recent post to discover three easy tips to get started living a more sustainable lifestyle. While you begin to make a difference in your home or community, you can also support Smucker’s, Adams, and Laura Scudder’s natural peanut butter brands who have teamed up with the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) to assist with efforts to preserve our national parks! Their partnership has already donated an impressive $100,000 and the NPCA has been able to use funding to restore wetlands in Indiana and create a bridge in the Everglades to re-establish water flow and support the ecosystem!

The NPCA’s mission, which is to protect and enhance America’s national parks for present and future generations, can be applied right in your own community too. There are many ways to bring about positive changes within your local community — find below some helpful suggestions to get started:
*Bring an empty bag while visiting your local park and pick up trash.
*Contact your local national park and ask how you can get involved in helping to clean up local rivers and lakes.
*Suggest water conservation and watershed restoration actions in your community.

My family and I recently went to a park within our town to pick up litter. It was a great way to teach my girls how they can make a difference and help their community while also having fun family time. They loved seeing the end result of all the trash we were able to clean up!

    Six months ago, I started a newsletter mail out that gives people tips about how they can work to reduce their carbon footprint, including how to support our local growers of produce and our farmers. People email me tips to add to the newsletter. Thank you for the super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.

    • says

      This is in response to Pauline and my comment! I would love to be on her newsletter list!
      We compost and recycle. These comments though have made me want to do more!

  2. meija says

    I’m inspired to start using a timer while I’m in the shower, as I am very guilty of taking too long of showers.

  3. Kristen Varner says

    we recycle, use cloth diapers(I share my experience with friends) Joined a CSA. there are SO MANY ways to make a difference

  4. says

    I’m a big fan of riding my bike – so much so that I sold my car and went car free for about a year and a half. I can’t do that any more, but I still only drive about twice a week!

  5. Ashley Fryer says

    My kids and I pick up cans on the side of the road. The kids turn them in for money and we are cleaning up our community.

  6. Samantha V. says

    In the New Year we have started to check everything before tossing to see if it is recyclable rather than taking the easy way out and just putting it in the trash, we sort it now for recycling.

  7. Frances Wheeler says

    I am going to have a small garden this year wirh just a few veggies. Green peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, and squash. I am going to learn how to make pepper jelly, which is wonderful, for myself and for christmas gifts. Also I want to learn how to can tomatoes. I grew up with these always available and there is nothing that can be bought that is comparable!!! Also, smuckers natural chunky peanut butter with granny smith apples is to die for!!!!

  8. says

    As far as Smucker’s I have been a Smucker’s fan since I was a little girl, but now I buy sugar free, and it’s every as bit of good as the regular, and the jam is great too. As far as where I live being disabled is no fun especially when it’s hard to bend over, but I was able to number one grow my own veggies last year, and pull some weeds with my grabber. Also, when I walk the dog I use my walker (I can sit down on this one), so that’s why I’m able to walk her now so when she does do her business I bring bags with, and sit down on my chair and pick it up. It disgusts me when I see people just keep walking, and I know my bad, but I hope on their way back they forget and step in it… my bad! NOT!

  9. Leanne Norman says

    I take shorter showers. Keep heat down. Flush less. Keep the tap off while brushing teeth until needed.

  10. Jennifer says

    I dont have much of a community but im trying to work with my public library to bring awareness of the benefits of breast feeding, baby wearing, and cloth diapering to our area… none of the above are very popular or widely practiced (in fact im the only one i know who does cloth!)

    I am inspired to recycle, lower my hot water temperature and use my clothes dryer less.

    janetfaye (at) gmail (dot) com

    I’ve been spreading the word about coconut oil. Coconut oil has so many benefits, it’s organic, and CHEAP!

  13. Anne Perry says

    Educate on the dangers of GMO’s. I have contacted Smuckers in tje past about their peanut butter… it is not gmo free.

  14. Kortney Picker says

    I am inspired to reach out to help the poor and needy in our community, also I enjoy going to the nursing home to visit those that either don’t have family or have families that don’t care about them! I love bringing my daughter because they love to see a little girl in there (I always dress her up really pretty for them!)

  15. Danielle says

    We recycle newspapers/ads/inserts and take that to the local recycle center once a week. We also have a separate garbage bin for bottles.

  16. Isabella Castrillon says

    I know that as a college student I go through an insane amount of both paper and water bottles. And I will be honest, I dont recycle. I am thinking this year I will add a recycling can in our hall to encourage myself and other residents to recycle.

  17. Tammy S says

    We are very big on recycling, composting and renewable energy. We also try to carpool as much as possible, buy green products and repurposed products. I joke with my husband that if our carbon footprint shrinks any more, it will look like we didn’t existed. :)

  18. Lisa says

    Maybe working on doing some beach clean up – I live by the great lakes. We also deal with invasive species so there’s a lot to be done there!

  21. Aimee T says

    We raise our own food – sheep (for both milk and meat), pigs, quail for eggs, have an orchard and can/freeze our apples, grow a garden, recycle, use CF light bulbs, don’t accelerate like mad in the car, I used cloth diapers on my daughter (who is now in her mid-teens), rags instead of paper towels… I could go on and on. I live in the Green Mountain State – we were green before it was cool!

  22. April says

    My three kiddos and I always make a point to leave the park/playground/hiking trail/etc. cleaner than we found it, by picking up trash.

  23. Lori D. says

    When our city first implemented its recycling program, we handed out reusable shopping bags and flyers encouraging our condo complex tenants to recycle.

    We live on an island, so reducing, reusing and recycling are very important. We only have so much space to fill with trash, and we don’t want to spoil the beautiful space that we do have.

  25. Barbara A. Ramirez says

    I’ve gotten serious about recycling all plastic, paper and canned products I use in my home. I also re-use plastic bags from the supermarket..I try to use products with less chemicals in it for use in my home.

  26. Carissa Joslyn says

    I decided to change and use more green options because honestly..the worlds going to crap. no one gives a hoot and it’s so poluted it’s insane. in the town i used to live in, on ONE road, there is an estimated one person in every family on that road that has CANCER! i just had a kid i went to school with pass away from cancer who lived on that road

  33. laurapcu says

    I already use cloth diapers on my children and educate them on not being wasteful with water, but definitely need more work on recycling. That’s my goal for the year. And of course, remembering to take reusable bags to the grocery store instead of leaving them in a beautiful folded pile at home.

  34. Allison Downes says

    I am inspired to pick up more litter, recycle more, and plant more.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  35. kelly mcgrew says

    i am constantly going through my (and encouraging family and friends) closets, drawers, pantry, basement, etc. i always donate items (if they are usable) to others because i know what it’s like to not have what i need.
    with couponing and sales, i have now been able to afford my necessities and even a few luxuries. i feel fortunate and helping others always makes me feel full and grateful!

  47. Eileen Richter says

    Leading an example by not buying into the treats and junk food that most parents allow their kids. Making healthy lunches and offering things most other kids would never even try! Kids at school NOTICE this.!My daughter got on this “kick” from a mom who started to make wholesome treats and offered MY daughter things I would never have thought she’d like…things like squash and kale chips and even cabbage. and peanut butter, oatmeal, honey and flax balls! Things that are good for you. Kids follow by example, if we do this and then kids emulate us AND their friends, we can have a whole generation of kids that are not sick, obese, or so sedentary because the don’t have the right fuel in their bodies to GO. What goes into your body BECOMES your body! I had to learn the hard way by becoming chronically ill, chemically sensitive and blowing my digestive system out with really BAD foods.

  48. says

    we spend a lot of time out in nature, particularly hiking trails. If we see anything, we pick it up — it’s as easy as that! It’s all about being aware of the world around you…

  55. kelli says

    we use reusable items and our friends have picked up on that. we live in a small town where things like this aren’t really thought about, but it has been rubbing off on the people we know and they’re more conscious. we also buy from local shops and try to stay in the area as much as possible instead of driving to the bigger towns, like austin.

  56. Jennifer Hiles says

    I’m pretty good at recycling but I have a lot to learn about reusing. I still use sandwich baggies and occasionally plastic wrap and paper towels. So I’m inspired to switch to reusable products

    I’ve been using vinegar and peroxide to clean instead of harsh toxic chemicals. Use reusable shopping bags. Reduce, reuse and recycle:)

    I am inspired to clean up, where we live there are really a lot of rude people that throw their trash everywhere and just don’t care. I hate seeing kids playing with trash all over the park and such.

  83. says

  84. Debra F says

    We recycle alot. If I get plastic bags from grocery (because I forgot to bring in my own from car) I use them to line our trashcans in bedrooms and bathroom.

  85. Karen R says

  86. Gayle S says

    Thanks for getting me thinking! This Spring I would like to get the grandkids together and take them to the park in our city and pick up litter. It would be a great lesson for them and we would be able to spend the day together. At the end of the day I think all of us will feel like we made a positive contribution to our community.

  87. DelRae H says

    We use cloth diapers. Use homemade cleaning products (ie vinegar). And try to walk or take public transit whenever possible instead of drive.

  97. valerie says

    we do a lot here at home and have been for a long time. We recycle everything as much as possible. Like plastic and cans. Also since I buy a lot of sunday papers after over looking them and getting my coupon inserts if our neighbors want to see it or a family member would like to see it we pass them out and after wards recycle them. We also try to wash clothes at night after 7pm. We try to wash everything in one day so we wont waste so much during the whole week. I only wash and dry once a week and so does my mom. We take shorter showers as well. i used to take 30 min showers and have cut it down to 15. or if i feel like i may take longer when i don’t need the water i turn it off then turn it back on when im ready to rinse.

  98. Jamie Brigham says

    I am inspired to teach young girls that natural beauty inside is what matters, how they view themselves is the only opinion that counts and to never do anything they don’t want to do.

  101. Tara Liebing says

    Buying energy efficient appliances, educate community on recycling and being conservative with water and electricity.

  104. kath g says

    i’m inspired to do more and do less — more recycling, more walking, and less driving, less water and power usage.

  105. beth kelsay-embrey says

The grass is appropriate to the area and does not require watering. Our community bans certain fertilizers.

  113. Jill Myrick says

    We plant a very large garden every year and give loads of it to neighbors and shelters in our area, recycle as much as possible, conserve water as much as possible and help out in our local shelters.

    jweezie43[at]gmail[dot]com

  114. Paula Gardner says

    Recycle. I have been teaching the benefits of recycling to my family, friends, coworkers, neighbors really anybody that will listen to me for a few minutes. When I talk about recycling we try to buy used for most but not all of our furniture and the same for clothes. Some things I believe should only have one owner but there are so many things in the world that can be reused and maybe not for it’s original purpose.

  115. AmyBond says

    This year we inspire to buy as much local fresh produce as we can. In addition to helping out local farmers, it tastes much better than store bought!

    My son came home with an “energy conservation box” from school last month. He was so excited that he got me all fired up! We replaced all the energy draining light bulbs in the house, installed new shower heads & kitchen faucets. I wonder what we’re gonna do now :)

    We have many bodies of water around here and many birds who frequent those bodies of water. I’d love to make sure they aren’t getting caught up in fishing line, soda rings or other unnatural nasties humans toss around.

    I have my own veggie garden and participate in my church’s community garden that is grown for our local food pantry and lunch kitchen.

    I am inspired to grow my own herbs & vegetables this season and share them with my neighbors, which is my immediate community.

    I try to do my part by recycling and composting, both at home and in the office, by using and sharing canvas shopping bags, and joining a community garden with a group of friends each year.

    me and all my kids and most the family love to hunt and fish..and so many hunters and fisherman throw there trash in the woods and aorund the lake..we always tke trash bags with us and pick it up as we see it.we try to take care of our animals.as it puts food on our table and all the trash really puts them in danger.and even in winter time when we dont fish much we go out to the lakes and pick up fishing line.as that kills the fish and wild life

    I am inspired to make a natural difference with my kids at school. We pack healthy lunches with nothing to throw away.

    I use reusable grocery bags and I enjoy buying our fruits and veggies at farmers markets when the weather is warmer. We also grow a garden.
