Earth Day is coming up and we love to celebrate things that matter to us around here. Because Home Depot is a sponsor for the SNAP conference that I am getting ready to attend, I decided to visit my local store on a quest for a way to honor the 22nd of April. I quickly discovered (before even entering the building) that my local Home Depot is not only the best for Earth Day inspiration but for every day shopping and happiness.
The manager greeted me (she was moving plants around) before I ever entered the outdoor garden area. She was super friendly and kind and connected. I told her that I was going to SNAP and she was totally aware of what it that means. She shared that she JUST started a Twitter page for her (0ur) store. Yay! I especially love that her apron donned WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP! I can’t wait to come back from the conference to share my experience with her.
I walked around and did a little shopping. It may be snowing today out here in Colorado but over the weekend when it was warm, the Home Depot team had LOTS of great flowers and plants merchandised and ready to buy.
I love that there are Proven Winners!
The checking out was equally friendly and professional. I got great stuff to use for my Earth Day project for my blog, the school and scouts.
How great is that the girl checking me out (aka Lovely January) not only smiled and was cheerful but she speaks FRENCH. Bonus. Okay, so not that I do or anything but…
If you are wondering what I created with my purchases, check out yesterday’s blog here. You can download the printable for free to create your own Earth Day gifts.
We used the Pennington grass blend for class treats. The kids are going to LOVE planting and watching it grow.
It was awesome fun and the kids and I will be ready to spread love for Mother Earth on Earth Day!
