Happy Earth Day

We are decidely on the crunchy side around here and love to take some time to reflect on how we can be better stewarts to our home.  Some changes I know I want to make in the near future are:

  • Finally, get rid of all the plastic bags and make some reuseable snack wraps.

  • Improve on our recycling efforts.  We do great if they pick it up at our house, but not so great for items we have to take to the center.  I know, I know, it is so bad to throw batteries in the garbage. 

  • And, say bye-bye tissue, hello hankies.

Also, In the spirit of Earth Day, I thought I would share some eco-friendly items you might want to consider:

 Moss Bath Mat - Designed by Nguyen La Chanh, this living bath mat will green up your bathroom.  The humidity from your shower will keep it alive.  Unfortunetly, per the website, little gnomes not included.

Towel House - A stylish way to house all your un-papertowels in the kitchen

Veggie Chop Vegetable Chopper - No power, no problem with this hand powered food processor.  This processor can chop everything from herbs to fruits and nuts.  The number of pulls on the cord controls how fine the chop will be.

The Hanging Gardens - This hanging plant pockets is made out of recycledplastic bottles and allows you to grow your own lush garden right on your wall.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
