yay for saving the planet! so, what are you doing to "go green"?
as for me, the trunk of my pri-YES is stuffed with reusable grocery bags, we drink filtered tap water instead of buying bottled water, paper plates are no longer used in the wan house, you know - all the usual stuff. we've been trying to clear out stuff we don't need anymore - what are my fellow toddler parents (who aren't planning on having any more babies) doing with the little ones' cribs and toys and stuff? i suppose we could just donate it all, although our local goodwill refuses to accept toys anymore, and that's what we have the most of. lame, huh? i didn't think charities typically did the "pick and choose" as to what to take. whatever.
i'm dabbling in upcycling (i learned that term just this week, from the nest) and you saw the first attempt when i converted one of the hub's old dress shirts into a dress for the bean. i'm trying to make the most out of what's just lying around, and it's fun to learn new, creative ways to recycle and reuse stuff that we already have.
so, in honor of earth day, i'm doing a super fun giveaway! my friends over at CSN stores have provided me with a $60 e-gift card that you can use at any one of their 200+ online shops. they have all sorts of neat-o stuff, from cool modern furniture to cookware to shoes to baby gear, and everything in between. i've been browsing the sites over the last few days, which the hub probably won't appreciate much as i've found all sorts of stuff that i absolutely have. to. have. heh.
all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you're doing to help save the planet. i'm always looking for new ideas to be eco-friendly, and maybe as you read through the other comments, you'll pick up a tip or two, too. see? it's a win-win situation! i'm here for you.
you've got till - hmmmm, let's see - sunday at noon PST to enter. i'll pick a winner using random.org to make it fair, because i refuse to put myself in the position of judging your tips and tricks. i'm sure they'll all be fab, and i don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
because today, i just want to give the whole world a big ass hug. awwwwww.
EDIT: please be sure i have a way to get in contact with you in case you win! for those of you who have already commented, just be sure to tune in monday, just in case.
