Tuesday's Green Tip

It is Tuesday and that means it is time my for Green Tip.

Today I am going to highlight the absolute coolest diaper bag I have EVER seen. What makes this so great AND green you ask? It is made out of 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles and is PVC free plus 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Healthy Child Healthy World. How cool is that? Very cool in my book!

The folks at Seventh Generation have just launched the Wee Generation eco-diaper bag . This bag is awesome.It is not your typical diaper bag. It is super hip and trendy coming in several patterns that even Dad would have not problem carrying it. There are removable inserts that include an insulated feeding tote, changing tote and changing pad PLUS tons of pockets to keep all of babies belongings organized.

Now here is the coolest part. I am having a contest, a giveaway, now how fun is that?

To celebrate the launch of this super cool diaper bag my new friend Meghan from the GCI group is donating a Seventh generation Natural Baby Starter Kit. This is everything new parents or parents to be will need to help create a natural healthy lifestyle for their beautiful little bundles of joy all tucked in a handy tote.

Here are the rules.

Of course you will need to comment but this is a green tip post so I want you to post a green tip.

The winner will be chosen by random, I think that would be the fairest way to handle my first contest/giveaway.

The winner will be announced on next Tuesday's Green Tip.
Until next Tuesday.....stay Green
UPDATE: The contest is for the SeventhGenerationNatural Baby Starter Kit NOT the diaper bag, sorry for any confusion

My Tuesday Green Tip (an entry for that amazing diaper bag) is this:
If you're shopping for only a few small items, and have managed to carry them throughout the store without any difficulty, politely tell the cashier at the check-out that you don't need a bag, and continue to carry them without assistance out of the store. If your purse is large enough, you can place the items in there (after purchasing, of course :)), or use reusable bags for more extensive shopping trips.

Look at you, all grown up and hosting a give away. How green are you!

I have no green tips, sorry. Oh wait, save your used popsicle sticks and cardboard tampon tubes to use as kindling when you start a campfire.

So, how do you like me now?

to make sure i remember to save my trash for recycling, i line up those small, plastc garbage sacks against the kitchen wall with their intended content written on each one with a marker.

That diaper bag is great! My green tip is use cloth napkins. I never use paper napkins and everyone thinks we're so fancy fancy for using cloth!

Okay my green tip is use water bottles to fill up with tap water instead of buying bottled water.
This would be so great because I'm pregnant.

NOT! Just wanted to see your reaction.
Worth it!

My green tip is to replace all bulbs in your house with the CFL bulbs- I also found that my electric bill went down a lot after doing so!

Thank you for the giveaway!

Shop at garage sales and thrift stores....

Keep a bucket near the shower. Use it to catch the water that's running as you heat it up. I use this water to water my plants outside!
Helps the old water bill too :)

ya know carrie? I actually have done that, in college, when camping with a sorority sister.
but then again, that was when i also vowed not to shave my legs until i got a date during a dry spell in loveland.
oh boy-did i share too much?
oh well.
as for my tip, cuz i love green products like this, i cloth diaper at home and when at family get-togethers and save the disposables for diaper rashes and all day outings. saves me cash and helps the planet too.
hope i win!

Ahhh, a subject for this time of year....flies. I just hate the ones that get in the house. While a flyswatter is usually the way to go, there are always a few that wander in that you can't get no matter what you do. I used to buy costly sprays, loaded with chemicals to kill those critters. But then I started thinking about my family and my animals-and started using the non-toxic fly strips, usually made with honey and sticky tape, the fly stops to eat, and gets stuck. end of story!
