Eco-Splurge, come on, it's ok!

It's time for an eco-splurge isn't it! We all need to treat ourselves every once in a while in order to keep that zest for life going right? The splurge can be inexpensive or expensive, if you can handle the cost, go for it. Feel good doing it too! Here are some great ideas on how to splurge. And if you're feeling not in the celebratory mood, Obama's inauguration is in 12 days, it's time to celebrate!

*Take your friends out for some organic brew, on you! Treat your best pals to organic whole food muffins, a cup of fair trade java and some conversation (that's free!)

*Pick up a lavender sachet from Local Harvest and tuck it under your pillow. Enjoy the soothing scent of lavender as you fall asleep each night.

*Cook a meal for a loved one, splurge on 100% organic, natural and fair trade ingredients, cook it from scratch and sit back to enjoy the evening

*Head to the bookstore, stock up on some eco-reading! Here's a book list:

Real Food

The Ethics Of What We Eat
Organic Inc.
Diet Of A Dead Planet
Omnivore's Dilemma

And if none of those spark your interest, do whatever it is that makes you feel good about the environment and yourselves. Keep that attitude alive!
