Happy Mother’s (Earth) Day!

Mother’s Day is almost here! I could give you a long list of ideas but I happen to be a mom too(!) and I’m going to go easy on myself today (yes, I’m taking Mother’s Day weekend off a little early!).

mom tgsIn the past years I’ve gotten everything from a “dogtag” necklace with my children’s names and birthdates (made of silver recycled from film {from Mommy Tags}) to a stainless steel water bottle and this year will be no different… this year, a rain barrel!!! Woohoo!  Who knew something like a barrel for Mother’s Day could be so exciting!

If you ARE still looking for ideas, I assembled a pretty decent list in my recent Valentine’s Day post and all are appropriate for this holiday, so no need to reinvent the wheel.  But if you want those ideas just click here and take a gander.mother earth

For this Mother’s Day, whether you are being celebrated, celebrating your Mom or another special lady in your life, just remember to keep Mother Earth in mind too. She is quite extraordinary and she shares her gifts with us every day of the year.  Just like all other moms, she never takes a break!

And finally, I wish a very truly Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms who constantly join me on this journey… we all “work” so hard for our families and keep Mother Earth in mind all along the way too… and THAT is quite extraordinary as well!

Enjoy & I hope you feel the love…

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. I love my Mommy Tags too! Wishing you the happiest of Mother’s Days. A rain barrel is a GREAT gift! And if you want something a bit more sentimental, check out the video I wrote a number of years ago that so many moms seem to love. (Get out the hanky!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TWgzLxbMdo

    My Mom’s Day gift to all my fellow mothers.

  2. Lynn – hanky? Seriously? … I needed a towel!!! THAT WAS WONDERFUL! Thank you for sharing! (I’m still wiping away huge tears!!!!!)

  3. Happy Mother’s Day! My gift (a rain barrel also) is on back order through the city until the end of June(ugh!), but I did get my 2 retractable clotheslines installed in the back yard, as well as some new battery chargers/reusable batteries! So all in all I can’t complain….

  4. Lisa – hope you had a Happy Mother’s Day too! Anxious for my rain barrel as well, but cheers to green Mother’s Day gifts!
