Going Green

So lately I have been trying hard to be as green as possible. Some days are better than others. I wanted to share a few news things I've been doing. First I have stopped all the unnecessary magazines that I receive in the mail. Its just as easy to look on the internet so why waste all that paper and trees. I found this great website that contacts the companys for you and tells them to stop mailing catalogs. All you have to do is type in your address. Check it out please! https://www.catalogchoice.org/

With the holidays rapidly approaching I have been thinking and researching ways to be eco-friendly during all the hoopla. Christmas cards...if you send them the snail mail way you have several options. I have found many cards made from recycled paper, veggie based inks, and just all around more eco-friendly. There are also many websites that have charity Christmas cards. These might not be eco-friendly but they are all for a great cause. Check out these websites http://www.cardsthatgive.org/
If you want to be really green just send e-cards!!

One last thing...for a GREAT christmas present check out TOMS shoes at http://www.tomsshoes.com/. For every pair purchased they give a child in need a pair of shoes. How cool is that?!

I love that your blogging, and I love this post! I am going to post about Hiefer International as well, but if you aren't wanting to buy gifts for each other and want a good charity to give to, you can buy animals for 3rd world countries too. http://www.heifer.org/site/c.edJRKQNiFiG/b.204586/
