Earth Day - What have you done for me lately?

We have used and abused this planet for years.  What have we done for it lately?  Sometimes we need a little push since we may not see the benefits of our effort to preserve our planet but our great grandchildren might.  A wonderful website RecyleBank allows you to earn points by reading some tips to recycle, save energy or shop with green companies.  The reward points can be used towards green companies in the form of discounts, gift cards and coupons.  I've learned a lot of energy saving tips and in the process earned hundreds of points.  What have you done lately to preserve our planet?

Scent of the Month - Freesia

New York has had a very mild winter so the transition was seamless except for seeing spring flowers bloom.  I love flowers even though spring is my allergy season.  I thought the sometimes forgotten spring flower Freesia deserved it's time to shine so I made it my Scent of the Month.  Available as a candle and bath & body scent.  Check out our other springtime or floral fragrances.  What are your favorite scents for spring?
