Fall is here! The leaves are changing colors, the air is crisp, and the desire for coziness is growing. It’s been a heck of a year so far, so why not celebrate Fall and indulge a little. Here are 5 zero waste ways to bring a little Fall magic into your home.
Make Apple Cider
Few things say Fall like cozying up with a glass of warm apple cider. Even better, is the amazing aroma that fills your home when you whip up a batch of apple cider.
PickEco has a plentiful selection of spices that you can pick up zero waste at our store or we can ship you in plastic-free packaging. From Allspice and Anise Star to Cloves and Nutmeg, PickEco has all the Fall spices to keep your pantry happy. Click here for local pickup/delivery for spices.
Here’s an easy apple cider recipe:
- 8 Cups Apple Juice
- 1 Apple
- 1 Orange
- 20 Whole Cloves
- 2 Cinnamon Sticks
Cut the apple and slice the oranges. Stick the cloves into the apple. Bring the ingredients to a boil and reduce heat to low. Allow the ingredients to simmer for an hour and enjoy! You can also use a crock pot for this recipe!
If you’d rather use apples instead of apple juice, substitute the apple juice with 10 – 12 medium apples. Quarter the apples and add 8 cups of water.
Scent Your Home with Essential Oil
