buying toys made from natural biodegradable products. see eventually they just break down and return to nature and you dont have to see them anymore.
and reaching out to those in the natural world. (can you see luke's new friend the woolly worm?)
ok ok OK!
those pics were taken this past weekend at the ozark folk center in mountain view, ar.
but here are a couple of things i have made myself proud by doing my part to be more eco-conscious.
you all know i love my clothes line. i can get 5 loads done in no time flat. especially on these windy days we've been having.
these are all thrifted sheets, another eco friendly activity. some of them have already crossed over into their new lives as aprons. more on that later.
but here is what i am proud of the most. i know i kept saying i was going to make my own but i never did. so i figured buying them would be the next best thing.
only a buck each and they are great bags. the can hold soooo much. probably like 2-3 times as much as the plastic ones and they are sturdy, sit nicely and have really long handles you can even carry on your shoulder. i think i have about 5 now and i can get all of our groceries into them! i used to come home with at least 10-15 of the plastic bags. and when you go to the store every week you can image how they build up. also the bags are made from recycled plastic bottles.
and here's a word about my actual mother and father. not only is today earth day but its my mom and dad's anniversary. i'm terrible in that i can never remember how long they have been married. late sixties i know that. see horrible. bad daughter! lol.
these are my favorite pictures from their wedding. my mom actually made her own going away dress. and i used to wear it in high school.
happy anniversary mom and dad. i love you guys.
