Going Green-er

Since becoming a Mommy almost 8 years ago, I have made efforts to be more “green”.  We now have reusable bags for shopping, use all non-toxic cleaning supplies, eat mainly organic, etc.  I’ve managed to lessen my family’s footprint, but I think we can do better. I will post my projects – their progress, success, or failure. I hope you will share yours with me too!

  2. I began our elimination of paper napkins right around Christmas time. I bought lots of fabric napkins on clearance at Target and Pier 1. They were much cheaper than even making them. I also made a really pretty bowl to hold the napkins.

    The napkins are not only earth-friendly, but they’re pretty and I get to accessorize with napkin rings!!

  5. I totally forgot to check back here after I commented, until I stumbled across it today. The bowl I made in my ceramics class can be seen on this post:
