4 Simple Ways To Go Green For Earth Day

April 22nd is Earth Day. It’s a time for people to give back and do their part to care for the planet. A number of events across the world are held each year. If you would like to do your part, here are four simple things that you can do to help the environment. Use these ideas for Earth Day and year-round!

Turn Off Those Lights:

If you’re not in a room, why would you keep it lit? We’re all guilty of doing it, but leaving lights of when they’re not needed is simply a waste of electricity. By simply flipping the switch when you leave a room, you can decrease your impact on the environment.

Unplug Your Appliances:

Did you know that your appliances can still use electricity even when they’re not in use? Be sure to unplug your phone charger, toaster and other non-essential appliances and devices when you’re not using them.

Bring Your Own Shopping Bags:

Those grocery bags you use can really take a toll on the environment. Once you’ve unloaded your groceries, these bags generally go straight to the trash and eventually fill up landfills. Avoid using those paper or plastic bags at checkout and help the environment out by bringing your own reusable shopping bags.








Plant a Tree:

It may seem like a pretty generic activity for Earth Day, but that’s with good reason! Trees offer a number of benefits to the environment, including absorbing carbon dioxide and providing a natural habitat for wildlife. Planting just one tree can make a difference.

A Great Outdoor Selection Available At Dave’s

Spring Cleaning Tips From Dave’s

It seems like it took forever for it to come, but spring is finally here! Pretty soon you’ll be able to fill your weekends with fun outdoor activities. Before that though, it’s time for a little bit of spring cleaning. Although it’s not the most exciting thing to do, spring cleaning can be a satisfying and rewarding activity. Here are a few tasks to help you clean and declutter your home.

Thoroughly Dust Your Home

Floors, tables, bookshelves, ceiling fans, you name it and it’s sure to have some dust on it!  Not only will dusting help your home look better, but it can reduce the amount of allergens in your home as well.

Take Inventory

Over time your fridge, freezer and pantry are sure to become cluttered and unorganized. There may be some food hidden that you just forgotten about! Go through your food supply and organize everything you have. While your at it, check the expiration dates and throw out anything that has gone bad.

Raid Your Wardrobe

As you transition from winter to summer gear, this is the perfect opportunity to get rid of some old clothes. Go throw your closet and drawers and see if you have anything that you can get rid of. Some of your clothes may be out of style and haven’t been worn in years, while others might not even fit you anymore! You can set aside the clothes you no longer need and donate them.

Give Your Home A Deep Clean

Floors, counters, sinks, windows, everything in your home is sure to need a deep cleaning. Take out the vacuum, mop, polish and degreasers and clean every nook and cranny! There may be corners of your home that you have neglected to clean for a while. If it seems like too much, just take it one room at a time and see how much you can get done. It doesn’t need to all be cleaned in one day!

Decorate For St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and Dave’s Christmas Wonderland has all of the decorations you need to get your home ready for this fun holiday. Whether you’re looking to decorate for a party, or your own home, we’ve got you covered.

Decorate With Ornaments:










In addition to lights and garland, ornaments are also a versatile decoration that can be used for many holidays and occasions. We have a selection of St. Patrick’s Day ornaments available, including this “Irish Blessings” ornament, which is adorned with Celtic knots. You can hang these ornaments on a mantel, or attach some ribbon and dangle your ornaments from windows or chandeliers.
