Green Birthday

 

Today is my Birthday, so I thought I would write 3 tips for a greener Birthday.

  1. Let’s start with a no brainer, paper invitations. If you happen to be throwing a real party send out E-vites on-line, not invites via snail mail. You could also make invitations out of recycled stuff around the house and walk it over to your friend’s house. :P
  2. Use washable plates, utensils, and cloth napkins and tablecloths. No more Party City people, so much disposable junk.
  3. Make your own wrapping paper out of stuff you already have around. I sometimes take old newspaper and wrap a gift, but I make a collage out of it that represents the person who I am giving the gift to. It just seems like a waste to buy paper for someone to tear up and throw away. Instead what you could use are old maps, newspapers, magazines, old calendars, spare pieces of fabric, paper bags that you can draw on…multitudes of things to do to be super green. Oh and Gaiam makes seed gift wrap that is biodegradable paper embedded with wildflower seeds. Just plant and water. There’s no waste … just beautiful blossoms that make this wrapping paper a gift in itself.

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!!

:D

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
