    I took my niece out for ice cream yesterday (hooray for spring weather!)  and made a point to bring our sticky containers home to rinse out and recycle, rather than throwing them in the trash there.

    I took another step towards living sustainably yesterday that I have been meaning to do for awhile... I bought cloth napkins!  No more paper napkins (and the plastic packaging they come in) for my household! I can't speak to the quality  because they haven't arrived yet, but the price was very reasonable (12 napkins for $14.99).

    A conversation with a friend yesterday reminded me of this TED Talk.... I saw it years ago but it has stuck with me, and I share the message often with others.  It is only 4 minutes long and teaches a  super simple concept of how to stop wasting multiple paper towels when drying your hands (that really works every time!). I hope you all take time to watch it and spread the word :)  Enjoy!

    I recently ripped the strap on my backpack. Instead of sending it to the landfill and buying a new one, I mailed it back to the manufacturer to be repaired (for free).  Thanks Jansport! What other companies offer something like this?
