It is Earth Day today.
Did you know that over one billion people in 192 countries are participating from New York to Sao Paolo, Seoul to Babylon City, New Delhi to Boston, Rome to Cairo; people everywhere are taking action in their communities. This is amazing! I think it is a global reminder of how we are tied together in this beautiful planet.
So in order to make a change for the better, our family has taken steps every year to help make our carbon footprint less. We recycle… paper and all cardboard and three years on Earth Day, our family decided to lower our carbon footprint by using reusable bags whenever we go shopping. Kids learned in school that the process of making traditional paper grocery bags includes over-harvesting our forests, chemical off-gassing and a lot of energy consumption. And don’t even my daughter started on plastic bags!! They blow all over the landscape, fill up our landfills and pose a hazard to wildlife.
So we made the change to reusable. Since, i love cute, although the grocery store reusable ones are a no-brainer I wanted to add some “cute” to the tote and I went shopping for shopping bags : -) You can find reusable shopping bags in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but those with similar dimensions to brown paper bags are my favorite type. Here a list of Made in the USA options from our friends at “Made in USA Challenge“:
- Mighty Nest
- Our Green House
- The Cloth Bag Company
- Tom Bihn
- True ReUSAble Bags
So, I got myself some cute shopping bags, but it was hard at first to remember the bags at first, always forgot them in the car!! So I had to chance some habits. A got a small “trapper” container to keep them all together in the car, but recently I discovered The Tote buddy (another small business – I prefer to shop from other small businesses). The Tote Buddy is a case that holds several reusable bags fashionably! Score!
And remember you can use uses reusable bags not only for shopping, but also for tasks like gardening and toting pet supplies.
We hope today… you start doing something to lower your carbon footprint.
It’s easy! Attend an Earth Day event in your community, start doing something to lower your carbon footprint, and take a photo of yourself being part of the solution and upload it to The Face of Climate Change Wall.
What will that be?

What do you think? Do you like the spring weekend look? What would you add?
March is a few days away and for many that means spring break season. This picture sums up my Spring Break plans…
Yes, sand and beaches! After a winter of snow and cold, getting into warmer weather for spring break is like heaven. So, I am starting to shop for my getaway pretties.
What’s in my bag so far?
Well…after a mani and pedi before leaving for vacay I like to keep my polish without chips on the trip.
#1 nail polish!
I love Essie and all their bright colors and they are made in the USA.
#2 – I normally like to bring 2 to 3 swim suits. I can switch on days. I found this site with affordable swimwear and made in the USA. http://www.venus.com
I am tankini girl. After two babies I do not feel comfortable bearing my midriff anymore. But they have great looking bikinis and one pieces too.
#3 Flips – Not sure if you are familiar with these sandals, but Terox Footwear are made in the USA and offer so many fun colors.
I am an apple green and blue fan!
#4 I have a few MiUS outfits picked out for the sunny days…here are some my picks:
So there you have it! I think I am off to a good start right now. I love packing for spring break. It is my pre-vacation fun! Do you have any getaways planned?
