|For EcoMoms, Saving Earth Begins at Home - New York Times
So glad to see this. I just wrote a piece about being an eco-mom for the upcoming collection The Maternal Is Political, edited Shari MacDonald Strong. It's an uphill battle and I wish I could sell my SUV and buy a Prius like, this afternoon, but amazingly, Maui doesn't even have public recycling!
Here are a few of my favorite eco-friendly things:
John Patrick--beautiful clothes, organizer for organic cotton farmers
Newman-Os--Paul Newman's Oreo alternative
Rawganique--Organic Linen Sheets
Acme Grocery Bags--they fold up into little pouches you can put in your pocket
Ecover dishwasher cubes--because I hate the idea of washing Tenzin's bottles and cups with an ammonia based product
What are yours? I'm always on the hunt. At the moment looking for non-plastic kids cups...
