Diva Cup Review

My sister and I are two totally different types of people and we live crazy-different lifestyles.   However,  we both like to be green and we do talk about all kinds of personal things, like feminine products.  So when I told her that Lunapads.com had approached me about reviewing their eco positive period products, she told […]

Review: No-Spill Insulated Kids Food Container by Contigo

We have been using inexpensive reusable plastic containers in our kids lunches for a number of years to be as waste free as possible.

Review: No-Spill Water Bottles by Contigo

We have been on the search for good reusable water bottles that don’t leak and that we like for a long time.   Last winter we discovered the Contigo 17 oz. AUTOSEAL® Swish water bottle and it has been a favorite of Alicia’s ever since.   Contigo offered us the opportunity to review some of their products […]

Do-It-Yourself Halloween Decorations

My neighbors put out a number of Halloween decorations and my children wanted some too.  I politely explained to them how I don’t believe in using electricity to shine lights on decorations or to blow fans to make decorations stand up.  I also explained that it wasn’t good for the environment to go buy a […]

Greening your Camping – Reusable Utensils

Camping is one of those times when you commune with nature, so why would you be less environmentally conscious when camping than at home?  Unfortunately, a number of people use disposable plasticware while camping and then throw it away or worse, burn it in the fire.  People argue about the health implications of using plastic […]

No Spill Reusable Coffee Mugs

We drink coffee every day, but we don’t regularly buy it at coffee shops.  To be honest, we avoid the coffee shops more because we can’t stand to spend $3 on a cup of coffee than because the environmental impact of all those single use coffee cups.  I especially hate those styrofoam cups that our […]

Calming the Wrapping Paper Madness

This morning I read a blog post on Practically Green about how to avoid mountains of holiday trash.  It’s a good article.  You should read it and take the quiz on Practically Green.  Love the site.   Then reflect on how you can best apply their advice to your holidays.   I started thinking about the mountains […]
