Groovy Green Livin this week's Pumpkin

This week was full of surprises-good surprises. Part of what I truly love about this job is that I rarely have any idea what each day will bring. I can plan and organize as much as I want, but sometimes that inbox has something else in mind for me. And I like it that way. The down side of the surprise element is that I sometimes don’t get as much accomplished as I would like during the day. This was one of those weeks where I was off-track, but somehow landed back on. Here are a few of the highlights.

Disney Petition Update

This week  I want to send a shout out to a few of  the incredible supporters of my Disney petition.

At last check 57,716 of you had signed the petition asking Disney to remove toxic chemicals from their Spiderman and princess lunch boxes. THANK YOU.

Selected for Global Team of 200

I’m honored to have been selected by Mom Bloggers for Social Good as part of their Global Team of 200. According to Mom Bloggers for Social Good:

The Global Team of 200 is a highly specialized group of members of Mom Bloggers for Social Good that concentrates on issues involving women and girls, children, world hunger and maternal health.

Over the year I will be writing and sharing some pretty cool initiatives all in the name of social good. Stay tuned.

Named Top Green Influencer

Thank you to Factory Direct Promos for naming me (along with many other familiar names and faces) to their list of Top Green Online Influencers for 2012. I’m honored to be in such good company.

Go Green this Halloween with a Costume Swap on October 13th

Time to put a little green into our Halloween. There’s a way to make this Halloween eek-o-friendly by participating in a National Costume DayTM swap. Again this year Green HalloweenKiwi Magazine and Swap.com have partnered together to promote National Costume Day TM Swap on October 13, 2012. There will be costume swaps taking place all over the country. Check to see if there’s one near you!

I hope your week was filled with wonderful surprises. Have a groovy green weekend.

Here in Massachusetts we have a three day weekend. Woot! Any big plans in your neck of the woods?

  1. It’s a 4 day weekend here for the kids! I’m just hoping for the sun to shine a little. Hope yours rocks!

  3. Way to go, green momma! You’ve accomplished so much in only a week’s time. Love the costume swap idea. We don’t need to spend on new costumes every Halloween, right? When the kids will only use it once.

  4. Congrats on all the good news! I feel the same way about blogging and it doesn’t help that I get sidetracked so easily either.
