Earth Day is April 22nd this year. We kind of celebrate Earth Day, everyday in our house.
My kids lunch boxes are filled with reusable containers (no plastic baggies or pre-wrapped foods) and SIGG water bottles. Levi, mostly takes hot food, in a thermos and when it’s not a hot food day, I pack veggies and snacks in cute containers I get at the japanese markets. I try and use my silpats when ever possible (however, I am addicted to pre-cut parchment sheets) and only use biodegradable cleaning supplies in our house. I only use cloth napkins and re-usable cloth cleaning rags and rarely use paper towels. I am trying to do my part.
We are also in the process of redoing our herb and vegetable garden. I am excited to ultimately eat what we grow. And I am guilty of dropping the ball on composting. That’s going to change!
Earth day is about embracing our environment, being conscious, and thankful for what we have.
Grateful Grafitti is a very cool company I discovered over a year ago. Their tag line is: TAG THE TOWN POSITIVE. Their whole concept is about tagging everything and anything (school lockers, cars, fridges) positive.
I have one on my car and get stopped frequently, asking me where I got my peace sign. I now keep some in my car at all times. I love spreading their message.
In the spirit of Earth Day I am giving away a Grateful Grafitti Peace Sign Magnet. To enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment telling me what you and your loved ones can do to honor Earth Day! I will keep the comments open until Thursday, April 15 th, 6 PM PST, and announce the winner (using a random number generator) on Friday, April 16th. The giveaway is open to US residents only. One entry per person!
