Eco-Weekend Plans

As the weekend approaches it's time to put your eco-thinking cap on and set out to keep the green momentum going. Here are some ideas of what you can do to get your green on this weekend.....

As the sun begins to shine, get those curtains or blinds open, ditch the lights in the house and use natural light to get you through the day. Make sure you turn lights off all day long, it's habit to turn them on despite barely seeing any additional light when the windows are open. Cut your bills too!

Cook! Create a feast for your loved ones with delicious in season organic produce, naturally and socially responsibly raised meats & poultry. Looking for grassfed in your area, click here! I know you'll find what you're looking for at

Ditch the car for your bike, or legs! Walk where you're going, ride in the sunshine and enjoy the fresh air. Obviously this depends on where you live, but the more you spend outside enjoying the fresh air the better, no matter where you live.

Support local artisans by shopping at local boutiques and farmers markets. I will be attending the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn this weekend, with over 300 vendors this year I can't wait! I am hoping to find a little something sweet for baby...The craft fair rolls around to Brooklyn, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, check out the link above to find out more info, dates & links to vendor sites.

Enjoy yourself....

All great suggestions, thanks. I hope you do find something cool for baby this weekend. My baby's turning 20 this weekend! (yrs, not mos) ; )

I'll be weeding the garden and harvesting some squash! Yep, already harvesting my tomatoes, acorn squash, yellow squash, zucchini and butternut! mmmmmmmm : )(I'm in FL so I got an early start)

Still waiting on the cukes, peas and beans, though. Not bad for apartment dwelling, eh?

I think I'll look into creating a compost pile as well.
