Dinner Dialogue Series #4

We’ve been anticipating the longer, brighter days of summer and this July 4 holiday definitely celebrates the essence of being outdoors – we’ll be enjoying picnics and BBQs, playing games, watching parades, and enjoying some downtime.


ECO-Inspiration: Repair Clothing Chain

Did you know that it takes about 1,800 gallons of water to produce one pair of jeans? How crazy is that! Since the clothing industry is a major contributor to environmental damage, let’s explore some ideas that would allow us to save resources and also produce a positive impact. You’ve all heard the saying “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” right? This week, we invite you to focus on these terms in the context of clothing, while adding an all-important term: “Repair”. We ask that you be mindful about purchasing used articles of clothing or tend to your own worn clothing by repairing it. 


Family-friendly Protein Muffins!

How can we pack the most nutritional punch into our food and still make it delicious for the entire family? This is a question we ponder at Ecopiggy since we all wish to enjoy our indulgences but also make sure they’re full of healthy ingredients – a win win! Since baking is one of our favorite past times, we were excited about a recipe that is super tasty, gluten-free, vegan, lightly sweetened, AND power packed with protein! Yes, mighty lentils.   No one will even suspect their presence since they blend in so nicely with the batter. These muffins have gotten the thumbs up from us ladies, our kids, toddlers, and even my dog (chocolate-free of course!)


Spring Crafts, the Natural Way

We’re thrilled to welcome in all the joys of spring! Longer days, bright green landscapes, budding flowers, and Farmers Market visits are just some of the highlights this time of year. With many of the kiddos on Spring Break this week, we are are always discussing fun, eco-friendly projects that will keep families entertained either at home or on vacation.


Year of the eco{PIG}gy

Kung hei fat choy! Another round of New Years blessings to you all. Indeed, today marks a new beginning in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac and fortuitously, 2019 is considered the “Year of the Pig.” Or, as we’d like to officially rename it, “Year of the eco{PIG}gy.”
