Green

My family started going green a couple of years ago when our son was in environmental club at his school. The whole family got involved by making a list of what we could do around our house to go green. We start by recycling everything that we could through our garbage company. We found that we were putting more in the recycling bin each week than we did into the garbage can! On average now we only have 2 garbage bags a week, whereas before we started recycling we had 5-7 bags. We always make sure that we are turning off anything that is not being used like the T.V. and lights and electronics that are not being used often. We keep each other accountable for turning out electricity that is not being used and making sure that nothing goes into the trash that can be recycled. The kids like being a part of making our little world green and knowing that not only are we helping our family with the things that we do to be green we are doing our part to help the planet.

Reusable bags have become very popular with environmentally conscious individuals, but in a busy family, keeping up with eco-friendly bags can be challenging. While an individual may only need a couple of bags to hold grocery purchases, the bustling household usually requires many bags. Inevitably, the bags are left in the vehicle, forgotten until the […]

I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to design my own branded SIGG Water Bottle because both of my kids have had a SIGG water bottle for 2+ years and I haven’t! It’s my turn now and mine is bigger than theirs! Childish.. I know.  Sebastian has a ninja inspired SIGG water […]
