Love our Planet – Big Lyle’s Does

Everybody probably knows that next Wednesday, April 22nd is Earth day!

Big Lyle’s is helping you think of ways to help celebrate our amazing planet!

1. Plant a tree: Talk to somebody at your local gardening store to find one that will easily survive your climate!

Go Green

Go Green! Go outside and plant a tree!

2. Make a nature craft: Try making a bird feeder or house to encourage local bird population! For an extra fun challenge, try making it out of recycled items!!

What a wonderful world, lets help it out!

What a wonderful world, let’s help it out!

3. Learn about the environment: The more you  know about it, the more likely you are to be able to help save it!

Lets protect our earth together!

Let’s protect our earth together!

4. Make it a challenge to reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as you can: Not only for Earth day but every day this year!

Spring is beautiful and so is recycling!

5. Love our earth: Remember to treat every day like earth day, it’s up to us to keep our planet safe!

Big Lyle’s Gives Back – You can too

If there is one thing I have noticed working with Big Lyle’s the last few years is that they love to have fun and they love to give back to the community! As a small business, they really value community and helping others.  So far this year Big Lyle’s has had the privilege of partnering with Volunteer Kalamazoo at their Eat, Drink, Give Event and Relay for life at their event in Findlay.

Both events were tons of fun (as usual) for everyone involved! Make sure to check out the pictures below to see how these two events went and the fun the guests had!

For anyone that lives in the Kalamazoo area and wants to know how to get involved in your community volunteer events click here. They have a lot of different opportunities to match your interests. Also, make sure to drop by the Relay for Life website to see events near you or to start an event.

Let the girls lead the way

Chances are you have known somebody that is or has been in Girl Scouts. There’s probably even a higher chance that you have bought a box of their delicious cookies!!

Well today marks the 103rd birthday of the Girl Scouts and I think we should all take the time to celebrate it! Big Lyle’s has partnered with the Girl Scouts many times and we want to share some of the girls that have helped keep this amazing organization going for so long!!

Below are pictures from the huge Girl Scout 100-year party that Big Lyle’s was at helping to connect the ages of scouting! So take a moment to crack open a box of your favorite cookies and enjoy the pictures. 🙂
