Open now for Zero Waste Tips from OKC and 10 Easy Ways to Help Our Earth. Plus, get all the details for Taco Night Fun and More!
Earth Day Every Day Friends! 🌳
Springtime has us all warm and sunny feeling especially after the beautiful weekend we had. Even with its side of intermittent clouds and drizzle, it was still pure magic all the same. We are blessed with the kind of weather that makes us dream of rainbows and the future promise of beautiful long summer beach days.
It's also that time of the year when we're reminded to be good stewards of our earth. Sadly this is really hyped up because of all the earth day celebrations everywhere - for one day. Now, I’m ok with us partying about recycling and being less wasteful - and I'm always down for a good time! Honoring and education about our earth is fantastic but I’m curious why we don't all celebrate and live Earth Day every day?
Small, subtle changes in everyday living can help so much. Earth Day feels a little gimmicky and a one day or one month celebration for something so precious feels like an understatement. Let’s commit to being MORE green all of the time and practicing a more sustainable lifestyle!
Here are some easy OKC Zero Waste Tips:
10 Ways to Help Our Earth 🌎
Use Reusable (Bottles-Shopping Bags-To Go Containers)
Meatless Mondays (changing one day to meatless is impactful)
Buy Less, Throw Away Less (shop for only a few days at a time helps reduce waste in our homes)
Up-Cycle or Donate Useable Goods (furniture-clothing-electronics)
Replace Bottled Soaps & Hair Products with Bar Options
Avoid Plastic Wrapped Produce
Shop Seasonally and Regionally (when available)
Use Eco Friendly Cleaning Products
For meatless options, Come join us for next week's Taco Tuesday! 🌮

What’s the meaning of Mardi Gras? 🎭
I've read a lot of versions but basically it is translated to Fat Tuesday, a day of merrymaking and indulgence before the Christian Lenten season starts. In many communities Mardi Gras is celebrated over days or weeks before Ash Wednesday - and this is called Carnival! So in the Carnival spirit and vibe we are having a community celebration.
If you are feeling in the mood to celebrate Mardi Gras and eat some delicious OKC food and Jitters Coffee Pub drinks come out to our community block party. We are also hosting a dry goods and canned goods drive for the North County Food Bank so bring your non perishables to the party!
O’side Mardi Gras Celebration on February 18, 2023 from 12PM to 5PM in the Jitters Parking Lot 510 N. Coast Highway in Oceanside.
