Happy Earth Day!

I hope that everyone is taking a moment today to at least think of a few changes that you can make in your life that are more eco-friendly. I believe that this is a process, and I'm slowly making more changes in our household that are better for the environment. I've talked w/ my 2-year old daughter this week about turning off the lights when we're not in the room. If she had her way, every light in the house would be on all of the time, but we're working on it. Here are a few of the changes that I've made in the last year and where you can buy the products/ find out more information:

--cloth wipes for lunch/ dinner messes in cute toddler patterns! They are just her size and much more fun than paper towels.

--reusable cloths for the Swiffer instead of the disposable ones (the shop I bought these from is no longer selling them, but they work great!) The shop listed above has similar ones for sale.

--reusable grocery bags from Target
--Greenworks cleaners (when these run out, I'll start using the ones from the shop listed above. She has so many green items in her shop!)
--Felt play food for my daughter from thelittleLOVEbug shop

These are just a few of the many eco-friendly shops on Etsy. Happy Earth Day!
