Happy Earth Day!
It's Earth Day... and while it is true that we should ALWAYS do what we can to tread lightly and reduce our impact on Planet Earth, sometimes we need a little reminder of this, and that is what Earth Day is to me!
In honor of Earth Day, I'm going to feature a fellow Etsy seller who makes beautiful items which make it easy to reduce and reuse! Blog readers, meet Gnomeclothes! I just bought some adorable "sandwich wraps" from Gnomeclothes for my kids lunches, to reduce the amount of wax paper and foil we throw away each week.
She also makes snack bags, sandwich baggies and cloth napkins in fun, colorful fabrics which are great for kids AND adults! Small steps do add up... if you take take your lunch to work everyday, five days a week, with your sandwich in a little plastic baggie, that makes 250 baggies in the landfill in one year's time! And if you have 2 or 3 kids who are taking their PB&J in a baggie everyday... well... you get the idea! So check out her shop, and do your part for Mother Earth today!
