Going Green

I just received an email asking me whether I felt my readers where eco-friendly inclined. I dare to say that our generation, and the new generations, are starting to become more eco-friendly. Maybe some more than others, but it is a start, right?



At home we do what we can, like:

  • We do not have a car...but this one was more of an accident that totaled our beloved Audi! We lost our car back in March and now we carpool with my mother in law whenever we need to go somewhere.…

Gearing Down for Earth Day

A gear blog with eco-sensibilities is something of a paradox.

After all, in the (few remaining) greenest parts of our Earth, the only baby gear you'll see is a simple piece of cloth tied into a sling. And this to raise children with legitimate life skills like hunting and building and cooking from scratch. If the point is to raise a family who stands a chance post-Armageddon, perhaps the rest of us are barking up the wrong tree (before cutting it…

Lunch Ideas: Going Beyond the Sandwich!

Going Beyond the Soup (and the sandwich!)



Some kids may get tired of sandwiches day after day. Hot Lunches the school makes do not always cut it nutritionally or come close to a warm, home-cooked meal. The thermos insulates the food keeping it warm so they can still have some of their favorite foods from home in their lunch. And, don't forget about "Hot Re-Runs"! With all the leftovers from last night's dinner, lunch couldn't get any easier.



What's in your… Continue

Earth Promise: New Green Mileage Standards

New automobile emissions standards are on the right track. President Obama is serious when it comes to fighting our global warming dilemma, creating new eco-related jobs and reducing our ongoing dependence on foreign oil. By 2016, all auto makers are required to make new cars and trucks get 30 percent better mileage. It will be a gradual phasing in process with the 2011 new automobile models. Initially, it will cost the consumers a bit more per vehicle, but these “new… Continue

Earth Promise: Reduce and Reuse: It Helps the Environment

Stuff. Possessions. Things. We all have way too much of it. Especially if you have children or if you are one to hold onto things for sentimental reasons. (You know who you are!) There may be a psychological underlying reason why you hold onto your stuff, but no matter what the reason is, there are ways to help reduce and reuse it.



Here are some ideas to reduce and reuse:



Birthday party favors. When my girls come home from birthday parties, the flood… Continue

Earth Promise: Green Your Mama

Environmentally friendly gifts are all the rage these days, but with the economy still dipping, you can still show Mom how thankful you are. Here are a few ideas that will let Mom know you not only adore her, but Mother Earth as well.



First and foremost, keep in mind what Mom’s hobbies are. Does she like to curl up with a good book? Purchasing books from a second-hand book store is not only a financially great idea, but applies the reusing thought process. Like Netflix’s movie rental… Continue

I have had it with excessive toy packaging!



I promised you the story and the pictures of opening the packaging of a new toy for Landon. Don bought him this noisy backhoe that came in the most ridiculous packaging I have ever seen. It was tied down by tiny screws, of all things, and it took us 10 minutes to open it! We were fuming and poor Landon had to be so patient. After we finally got it open, I took care of the noise by taking out the batteries right away, there was no way I was going… Continue
