Earth Promise: A No-Brainer for the Summer Traveller

June 1st, 2010 It’s hot and we need to stay hydrated. But to what expense? If you are an avid airline traveler, then you know the drill: guzzle down that $3 (and at some airports $5!!) bottled water before walking through the security check point. How many of you have actually tossed that half full (or half empty) bottle into the trash (or hopefully recycling bin), just so you can get to your gate on time? And since you want to have water while on the plane, once again, you shell out another…See More

Tap Project's Good Deed

Growing up, I always made the assumption that (clean, drinkable) water would always be available. My wasteful habits are astonishing to look back upon: running water while brushing teeth; not turning the hose off while washing the car; and running the kitchen sink while washing dishes. The millions of gallons of water my family and I wasted make me cringe with disgust. This careless water behavior of mine has come to a screeching halt. The news about our dwindling water supply and countries…See More

Heather,

Thanks so much for the comment. I'm glad to hear there are so many green moms out there that are willing to champion our cause. You might be able to convince your school's principal to run our program on Earth Day but either way, thanks for passing our words along.
Love the blog.
