Four Eco Friendly Mother’s Day Ideas

Top eco-tips for Mother’s Day

1. Don’t assume you know what mom wants to do or as a gift. She may prefer a picnic over brunch in a fancy restaurant.

2. When buying gifts, think locally made.

3. Avoid using wrapping paper. Substitute fabric wraps you make yourself from scarves or other fabric you have on hand, or purchase from a mom-owned company like Bobowrap. These can be used over and over again.

4. Give the gift of yourself. Whatever you can do for mom most certainly will be appreciated whether it’s washing her car, cleaning her gutters, or sorting and organizing old photos. Find something you can do that costs nothing but your time. Repeat once a month for a year!

Earth Day Find! Further Soap

How fitting that on today, Earth day, I came across this very fab {& thoughtful} find. Check out Further hand soap you will be amazed at this product and it’s story.

This eco-friendly {and fresh scented} hand soap was made by a husband & wife team who know a thing or two about being eco-friendly. Marshall (who was green before green was the new black) and Megan (a former event planner for Vogue), make this soap from recycled grease they pick up from local restaurants. They also happen to fuel both of their family cars with their grease-converted-into-bio-fuel mixtures. Now THAT is green! You can read more of their awesome story here.

Also- for TODAY only:

In Celebration of Earth Day, buy one bottle of FURTHER and get one FREE! Plus free Shipping! Sale ends at 11:59 PM PST on Wednesday April 22 so order now. Shop Now!

One Thoughtful Idea! More Birthdays Campaign by ACS

When it comes to birthdays, my friend Julie from Free Birthday Treats knows her stuff. If you are looking for a birthday freebie, special discount, or a budget-friendly way to celebrate, Julie is your go-to gal. So when she shared the news of the More Birthdays Campaign recently launched by the American Cancer Society with me I was so thrilled! As you know I love to celebrate, and the more thoughtful the better. Naturally I was on board with this campaign.

I’ll let Julie tell you about it herself (she is the birthday guru you know) :)

Take it Julie!

Thank you! Well, I created FreeBirthdayTreats.com because birthdays are a celebration of life and should not go past without some acknowledgement. In the weakening economy though, it’s tough spending money on celebrations. So I track down birthday freebies and discounts to help others continue to celebrate their special day.

To say the least, I’m very passionate about birthdays and this brings me to an email I received today from the American Cancer Society: Join the Movement for More Birthdays. I adore it! Declaring the American Cancer Society as the official sponsor of your birthday…awesome! It just launched today and will be an ongoing long-term campaign.

For me, this is a no brainer, but then I lost my dad to cancer over 16 years ago. Had he have been diagnosed sooner, he might still be with us today.

I joined the movement and would like to invite all of you to do so as well. Just visit http://www.morebirthdays.com to declare the American Cancer Society as the official sponsor of your birthday, join their Face Book group, send an e-card, download their More Birthdays Kit or start your own birthday page like I did:

I created this page in honor of my father, Joe Jameson. My goal is to raise $2,500 to help create a world with no cancer. Donations are welcome at: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/Events/BirthdayPages?pxfid=492974&fr_id=19690&pg=fund Thank you!

Thanks Julie for sharing! I predict this new ACS campaign is sure to take off- it’s such a thoughtful idea!
