Love Notes + Healthy DIY Snacks

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.


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.”


Meet the Ecopiggy Dream Team

You may be wondering who’s behind the Ecopiggy brand that makes and distributes your favorite children’s products? It’s time to introduce you to our small and mighty team of five women! Together, we’re shaping a new generation of healthy, happy piggies…one binky at a time.   

We all come from diverse backgrounds but what unites us is a dedication to healthy, sustainable living for ourselves, and our families. We do our best to engage in green practices, support local vendors, practice self-care, and treat each other kindly. We spend a lot of time outdoors, adventuring through the gorgeous Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon. Our home base of Ashland is a progressive, health conscious town leading the way in environmentalism. 


Zero-Waste + Plastic-Free = Win Win

Ecopiggy officially welcomes you – our readers, our supporters and our family – to a beautiful year ahead. We look forward to sharing reflections, recipes and eco-friendly tips as we venture through 2019 together.

As we commence a new cycle around the sun, we tend to use this as a reference point for setting ambitious goals for the coming calendar year. But did you know that most New Year’s resolutions fade away by early Feb? This spells disappointment for most.  What if, instead, we consider small, conscious choices that enable us to treat ourselves and the planet with more kindness and love?


Join us for #plasticfreejuly

Plastic bottles, bags, to-go containers, and many other products designed for one time use last forever. These plastics break “up” instead of down, becoming a permanent pollutant. With a shockingly low rate of recycling (only 9%!), most are sent to a landfill where they remain, while more is littered, and even more end up in the ocean. Scientists predict that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. Every bit of plastic ever made still exists, and in the first 10 years of this, the 21st century, produced more plastic than the entirety of the 20th century.

 

Join the #plasticfreeJULY initiative, help us reduce our collective eco-footprint, and save the ocean!
