Pinwheels in green grass

At any moment my kids are going to come running through the door ready for the weekend to begin (I’m ready too!). I thought I would share a few of this week’s green happenings before bedlam sets in.

Tristin & Tyler new siteTristin & Tyler launch a new site

Two of my favorite eco boys, Tristin and Tyler (along with their mommy), have launched a new site called: Tristin & Tyler’s Tales from the City! City Kids. Saving the Earth.  In the past I have highlighted a few of their episodes, but now you can watch all of them in one spot.  Each video /episode touches upon a different green and eco-friendly topics usually covering reducing, reusing and recycling. The general theme of each episode is family togetherness-different things you can do as a family to make a difference. The production of the show is a family affair: Tiffany (their behind the scenes mom) produces the series on her own (with the occasional help from her hubby).  The boys are always up to something groovy and green (that’s why we love them so).

Why reusables are so important

Did you know that an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used, and discarded, annually worldwide? This week I shared a guest post over at Almost All the Truth about 7 Reasons to Use Reusables discussing how plastic bags pose a tremendous threat to our environment. You have to at least check out the photo of the dogs.


The clock is ticking and time is almost up. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for full size Earth Mama Angel Baby products from Lullaby Organics. The giveaway will close on December 11, 2011 at midnight EST.

Have a groovy green weekend! What are your plans?
