Happy Earth Day!

What are you doing to celebrate? Here are a few green things to think about as you go through your day...
  1. When you are at the grocery store...buy organic and local produce. Begin with the berries, they are thin skinned and it really makes a difference.
  2. Are you still using plastic bags? Pick up a reusable bag or two that you can keep in the car so you don't forget them.
  3. Do you have to run to target? Think twice before buying a plastic toy for your child that is not PVC free. Select a healthier cleaning product like Seventh Generation over the generic brand.
  4. Begin Gardening this week. Plant an herb garden or a new tree.
  5. Recycle after dinner.
  6. Remember the little things can have a big impact. Remove your phone charger from the outlet prior to leaving the house. Lower the A/C. and turn the lights off in the rooms you are not using.
  7. Plan your weekend. Are there any Earth Day events in your area that you and your family can enjoy?
  8. Check out QVC....It's an Earth Day Celebration. Buy 12000 hours of Durabrite light per CFL bulb!
  9. One of my favorites...Sofie Uliano will be presenting her bestselling book Gorgeously Green and her new book: The Gorgeously Green Diet on QVC at 3pm and 10pm.
  10. Ed Begley jr. from Living with Ed will be on QVC throughout the day and at 7pm and 10pm.

Share the purpose of the day with your loved ones and enjoy....


Mod Green Pod - Eco Chic Fabrics

I am on a quest for fabulous eco chic fabrics and have come across some great finds. Today, I revisited one of my very favorite collections of 100% certified organic cotton fabrics and wallcoverings from Mod Green Pod. And found out that they have changed their processes setting a new, healthier and more affordable industry standard that is way below the cost of comparable non-organic designer lines. Amazing!

Why are these fabrics a healthier, safer option for the environment, your home and particularly the baby's room? Because there are no pesticides in the organic cotton, no toxic chemicals used in their water based processes and no additives in the finish that can lead to allergies or disease. Plus they are all produced in the United States.

I am loving this fresh, high end collection with great graphics that will add pop to any room. I can't wait for my samples of the new collection to arrive!
