I haven't posted anything in 2 years because life went COMPLETELY nuts. My husband died and it's taken the past 2 years to piece everything back together. I loved this site so much though, I haven't fully committed to deleting it yet. So I'm taking a vote- revive the site or turn it off???

For Music Lovers

Kudos to Jack Johnson on his 2008 eco-friendly summer tour. The Hawaiian-born Johnson, a former professional surfer, has been interested in the environment from an early age and is now using his star-power to make a difference. During his tour he will raise funds for environmental groups,use biodiesel in all buses and trucks, feature locally grown and organic foods and adhere to strict waste reduction and recycling guidelines. Also, $1 from each ticket sold will go to "offset the CO2 emissions produced by the concertgoers' travel to the show." For more information check out his online community, "All at Once," or his website for tour dates.

BPA Controversy- Q&A

With the findings of the latest BPA research all over the news, lots of people are left asking questions. "Do I need to throw out all my plastic containers? What do I really need to be concerned about?" If this sounds familiar to you, then check out a handout that was recently published by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy here. The good news out of all of this is that more U.S. retailers are giving BPA the boot. Canada's government is moving forward with a proposed ban on BPA in baby bottles; we can all hope that the U.S. will soon follow their lead.

More Products I Love- Baby Soy

My girlfriend just bought Miss C a beautiful blanket and bib from a company called Baby Soy. The blanket and bib are made of 50% soybean fiber and 50% cotton. In addition to being adorable, the fabric is super soft and environmentally friendly. I will definitely check out more of their products in the future!

You're Never too Young (or Old!)

You are never too young to make a difference. Our little princess, Miss C, has been organizing a shoe drive to raise awareness for the charity of the month, Stop the Spread. Ok, so maybe she got a little help. But it makes for a cute picture. Next time you get involved in a charity or environmental project, try to get your kids involved even if it's by just telling them what you're doing and why. Something as simple as explaining to a child why you're turning the lights out when you leave a room can make a big difference.
