- Save water by taking showers instead of bath, and have a cheap easy to use time to ring when your time is up. I have to have an egg timer for when the kids take showers otherwise they would stay in there forever.
- Try to limit the amount of bubble bath and shampoo you use. Their chemicals pollute the water and make it harder to clean. I use Dr. Bronner's Kids Bubble Bath and we use it very sparingly.
- Never flush your medicines down the drain!!!! The water filtration sites are not capable of getting Meds out of the water. Birth control, hormone replacements, antibiotics, steroids, and such have no place in my, your, water.
- Never pour paint or oil down the drain. Instead, take them to a local dump to be disposed of correctly.
- Look into natural approaches to lawn care and skip the chemicals all together. There are many ways to do this, and I will be giving a few recipes and ideas throughout April, in celebration of Earth Month.
- Keep our Rivers, Oceans, and Beaches clean. Take the steps needed to always recycle and throw away waste correctly, and take an extra bag just for cleaning up behind those that need a little help still.

Discovery Cove has a new baby Dolphin!
Picture from Inside Conservation Blog
"On Monday, February 25, 2013, Discovery Cove welcomed their newest addition to their family - a baby Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. The little guy is now a week old, weighs approximately 44 pounds and is 44 inches long. He is nursing and bonding with his mom, Kendall, both a good indication that he is doing well. This is Kendall’s fourth birth and the 26th dolphin born at Discovery Cove since the park opened in 2000."~~Inside Conservation Blog

This exciting news! It is a wonderful experience to see these beautiful treasures up close. We are heading to Sea World in just a few weeks, and I can't wait to share this with the kids. Teaching kids to love and appreciate nature and all its wonders builds them into conscious adults. Share Green Living, Conservation, and Awareness with your little ones, they are the future.
