Three Ways to be Greener August 16, 2011

I came across this app/site the other day that tracks your mileage and carbon footprint of your weekly commute. Its simple and eco friendly to use.


There are many plastic bags being thrown in landfills everyday. The best idea is for us to reuse the bags we have, and these ecobags are durable and lightweight. Once you get enough bags, you can prevent 15 bags or more from being sent to a landfill.
This is my goal to buy some after this next paycheck.


These reusable water bottles make life easy. They filter the water inside the bottle, and when you drink it, it is refreshing and smart. I bring one to work every day because I use water bottles anyway. I save at least 30 plastic bottles a month by switching to a reusable bottle in general. I even try to reuse the plastic ones when necessary. If everyone switched to resuable bottles, they would stop throwing away plastic ones and the earth would appreciate it.

Hydros Filtering Water Bottles

Advertisements Review April 4, 2011 is a site that has a wide selection of organic things for your home, babies, kids, and garden. I wanted to make a review of this site because of the awesome products they have. The website has a really earthy feel to it. The one thing to make sure you do is when you click a section to view, make sure you scroll down to the bottom, because all the products are at the bottom, not loading in that big space to the right of the links. I was a little confused on that. Aside from that they offer alot of good green things.

I found this site after my nephew, Aiden, was born on December 11th 2010. I have been showing my sister these products so that her baby can be safe and toxic free. They have a huge selection of different food and drink containters, non toxic toys, safe and effective cleaning products, and even non toxic art suppies. I have listed my favorite items from this online store. Some are baby products, and some are products for you too.
