5. Repair Don’t Replace
If you’re looking to do a closet clean out and replace as part of your big spring clean, try taking a greener route. Instead of trashing the old and buying new clothes, employ your new Fix It mentality! Got holes? Invest in your wardrobe by repairing them. To clean larger items like comforters and blankets, head to Spin Laundry Lounge for a wash and, before you know, it they’re good as new! Click here to get one FREE wash with purchase of one wash in any machine.
6. Rev Up Your Ride
Maintaining cars is often more environmentally friendly than the alternative of buying new. Keeping an eye on fluid leaks and levels keeps dangerous, synthetic chemicals out of nature, so head over to Bradshaw’s Auto Repair for a reliable oil change! Click here to get their 80 Years of Business Oil Change Special for $99.
Now's the time to launch those spring improvements and repairs. By focusing on repair instead of replacement, you'll be lowering your carbon footprint while raising your quality of life.
