Happy Earth Day!

It's that time of year again, and while we try to be eco-conscious all year, today is a great day to make a few changes. We've started "greening" our bathroom recently and are still looking for a few earth friendly items (please leave suggestions if you have them). So far, I'm loving the shampoo bars from Lush. They come with no packaging what so ever, are handmade, have no preservatives, and last a long time. My personal favorite is Squeaky Green. Give it a try and you'll never go back to bottled shampoo :)
While we're celebrating, grab this growing tree widget to help spread awareness. Yeah, we know it's an auto advertisement, but hey- a good cause is a good cause. Chevy is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to plant real trees as part of the campaign. When you click the "grab this" button, just click on the myspace icon for the embed code. It will still work.

Cool little widget, I watered your tree a little bit so it will grow even bigger!

That shampoo sounds awesome, definitely getting over to that shop :~)

Gotta try those shampoo bars. It's a step in the right direction and definitely easier to talk family into than self-composting toilets!

I love, love, love my cloth pads!! And I use cloth for me, too, sometimes. Most folks use way too much shampoo when they do use it - try and cut back just a little - you'd be surprised how long it lasts.

My favorite tip? Shower with a friend!
