Make Every Day Earth Day

April 4, 2019

At McNaughton Inc, we like to think of every day as Earth Day, although it's officially celebrated worldwide on April 22nd each year.  Back when is wasn't cool to be tree-huggers, we were creating earth-friendly products, including our line of Soda Bottle Bird Feeders that reuse empty plastic soda bottles to make wild bird feeders.  Save a Bottle; Feed the Birds!

 

We'd like to wish you a very Happy Earth Day and sincerely hope you give Mother Earth a helping hand on Earth Day and every day!
