The post my parents dread...

This post is going to make my father cringe in lament that his daughter is indeed the GD, bleeding heart, tree hugging, liberal he always feared he would breed.

Then my mother will shake her head, laugh, sigh and then cluck her tongue... her daughter is a granola hippie.

To my father organic = living thing or from a living thing. AKA... carbon based entities.

So... here are some of the wonderful things I've found...

The Wrap a Mat. This is awesome for anyone who packs a sandwich in their kids/spouses lunch or carries their own to work. Seriously inventive. Keeps your sandwich soft and yummy and gives you a clean place to eat.
Check out the ECOBAGS® produce bags. Great idea.

We are lucky that the town we are in has gone to single sort recycling, so we can dump all of our recyclables into a large trash can like container and they do the sort. Before that we had an ugly time keeping everything sorted. So, it's no surprise that I love these from the Container Store.

Not the least bit related .... but how cool is this little gizmo... a cup cake holder!!

Here is a kitchen composting bin you won't mind having out in the kitchen!

And finally.... a sunblock for my face that isn't causing it to break out. It's a little heavier than I would normally like, but the more I use it the more I love it!! It's not greasy. It's doesn't have a scent. SPF 20. I have been using it everyday as my moisturizer and it's fine. WOW!

And last but not least for now... please take a moment to check out Barbara Kingsolver's new book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life . It's an interesting idea, taking the thought of community supported agriculture to the next level. Kingsolver is one of my all time favorite authors, her fiction is amazing. This one is worth checking out too. Just to get you thinking.
