Yesterday we collectively recognized our planet (Happy Day to you!) within Earth Month, but here at Ecopiggy we like to keep the love going year round! Our team celebrates Mama Earth everyday, feeling grateful for all the natural beauty she shares.
As you know, Ecopiggy is always striving to provide you and your families with safe, reusable products that are kind to nature. We want to help you take mindful steps towards a waste-free lifestyle and reduce our reliance on plastics and other toxic materials.
We are especially excited to launch some new items from Bambu that are gentle to the planet and versatile for feeding the whole family. We can’t speak highly enough of our friends at this mission-driven company who are obsessed with sustainability, consciousness, and supporting local systems. We assure you that the quality of their products is top-notch, with “handmadeness” being at the core of their model –farmers, woodworkers, and stitchers who all work with their hands. Plus, they donate 1% of all sales to the eco-organizations.
This week, the Ecopiggy team invites you to participate in what we are calling “ECO-Inspirations” – small steps that you and your family can take to form new habits around eco-living. These individual steps on a household level will contribute to big change in the long run, and we find that inspiring!
Most Americans keep paper towels in their home and tend to reach for a sheet almost blindly to use for cleaning, spills, as napkins, etc. Unfortunately, this tendency leads to 13 billion pounds (yes, you read right) of paper towels used globally every day! And because they cannot be recycled (due to dyes, inks, fragrances, and other chemicals), paper towels are sent right to the landfill. With numbers this shocking, we’re hoping you can help us out so we can all move towards a greener planet.
As nature bursts to life in the spring, so do our bodies, a perfect microcosm of the world around us. This intense period also brings the release of allergens and pollens, which can trigger histamine reactions for many people. And there lies the perfect formula for seasonal allergies!
Here at Ecopiggy, our team is sharing ideas of how we can naturally support our bodies through allergy season. Our Ecopiggy team would love to share some of our ideas with you.
Oatmeal serves as the perfect base in which to bring out your inner artist – don’t you think? Recently, I’ve been inspired by the array of sweet and savory combinations of dishes that can be created with so humble and simple of a grain: the oat. Oatmeal is not only nutritious and satisfying, but also a beautiful culinary work of art and an affordable meal year-round. Color, texture and taste can be delicately crafted in endless variations – think miso, sliced radishes, cilantro, a poached farm egg and toasted seeds for a savory explosion. Or a nourishing sweet version like the one our founder, Hayley, brought for the team one morning, filled with playful toppings and infusions like nut butter, cacao powder, currants, and persimmon.
Love is in the air! We’re soon approaching Valentines Day, which in this country typically brings to mind the gifting of red roses, chocolate (in any form!) and romantic cards. Here at ecopiggy, we take this holiday less seriously as we believe that love should be sprinkled throughout the year, in unexpected ways! We enjoy surprising each other with nourishing treats, homemade body products, candles, crafts and lots of gratitude! It’s all about the act of giving freely and lighting up others’ lives.
