You are an Amazing Parent!

Parenting is not a task for the weary…although certainly a task known to make the strongest of us, VERY weary!  Here at Ecopiggy we wanted to take a moment to say,

You are a super star parent!!!”

Thank you for waking every morning to wipe another tush, cook another meal, make another bed, fold ANOTHER load of laundry, cook another meal, fold MORE laundry, snuggle, read a book, drive to soccer practice, make cupcakes, fold…….”  Let’s just say, “Thank you for everything you do, everyday!”  It might feel like it all goes unnoticed, but it ALL matters.


Dinner Dialogue Series #5

“Where does it all go???”  My son Alex always has questions.  He always wants to know how things work, why they work the way they do, what if they worked differently, and so on and so on.   He definitely keeps my mind exercised, reaching for answers.   Sometimes the answers lead us to asking further questions.

7 Ways to Swap Out Plastic Wrap

When it comes to preserving food, most of us have become accustomed to the easy, convenient notion of wrapping everything in plastic (and in the process, mummifying it)!  Just open that top drawer in your kitchen filled with plastic baggies, aluminum foil, and most likely, a roll of ubiquitous plastic cling-wrap. With the spotlight on excess plastic waste right now, it’s no wonder we are seeing so many innovative alternatives that offer protection for the environment and even prolong the life of our foods – a win win for all!  {Check out the discounts available for our ReThink Zero-Waste Kits!}


ECO-Inspiration

Did you know?

…that in the US, only 1% of plastic bags actually get recycled? Sadly, the rest end up in landfills or oceans. 

I’m sure you’ve been inundated by the topic of plastic shopping bags and bans, more so during this month of extra awareness (#plasticfreejuly)! It’s interesting though, that produce bags (those thin clear or green bags you pull off the roll) get left out of the conversation and they’re just as difficult to recycle or reuse. And, they’re just as massive of a contributor to our trash.
