My "New" Dresser

Green Earth Journey

This is my before picture, because I forgot to take one. My dresser was covered in fish fabric but I decided it was time for a change, a drastic change. So I went out and bought some damask fabric. The fish fabric is cut slightly larger than each drawer and then staple gunned to the inside.

Life With My Kids - Willow Update

Green Earth Journey

Willow is doing great! She is healthy, she has a very healthy set of lungs! Her brothers and sister ADORE her! I think she is losing her hair faster than most babies because she has so many people kissing it off the top of her pretty little head! But she is the exception to the rule.

Rocket Fuel In Infant Formula

Green Earth Journey

On rocket fuel in infant formula By Jovana Ruzicic April 2, 2009 [link] You don't need to be a parent to know that moms and dads have a lot to worry about--anything from their kids' healthy growth and development to the friends they choose and those math homework assignments. No this is not a joke. Marianna from Green Mamas Pad reposted this and I feel is important to repost as well. We were planning on using powder formula for Willow, we will NOT be now.

Check Your Tires Vlog

Green Earth Journey

How Much Air Should You Put in Your Tires? From Yahoo Auto It depends on the vehicle application, the size of the tires, how much weight is on the tires, and whether fuel economy is more important to you than a smooth ride. Listed in the owner's manual or on a decal in the glovebox or door jamb in every vehicle are the recommended inflation pressures from the vehicle manufacturer. For most passenger cars, minivans and minipickups, the recommendations range from 27 to 32 psi.

Heated Bottled Water Myth or Not?

Green Earth Journey

There is another email floating around the internet about not drinking bottled water that has been warmed up in the car. Being a person that always has a case of bottled water in the car, I wanted to check this out. To all my environment safety friends, I am making the switch from bottled water to huge sports drink containers. I was surprised to find that there is only one site with research information on this subject.

Allow me to introduce myself.

Green Earth Journey

Like any worthwhile life journey, the progression through eco-awareness to eco-responsible is a gradual one. I flirted with eco-awareness in high school in my "Bohemian" phase. I attempted to get the family on a recycling plan. I tried to throw less away. I donated more to charity. This continued into my early college days when I helped launch an awareness club on my campus. We passed out pamphlets and held bake sales.
