The focus on “plastic-free” is in full swing during this month of heightened awareness (#plasticfreejuly). Plastic bags, straws, cups, lids, single-use everything! At Ecopiggy, we feel strongly about these issues as we continue to educate our consumers and encourage tiny changes with huge impact. Let’s zoom in on an area of your household routine that may not receive as much attention on the plastic-free front: cleaning. Yup, that dreaded task we all wish to avoid!
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.
Now that summer activities are in full swing, you don’t want to forget all of those items you might need for a day’s adventures! Here at Ecopiggy, we’ve got you covered with our brand new line of string bags by ECOBAGS®, perfect for carefree family outings, travel, and shopping. We love their stylish and simple design in lots of fun colors (all naturally dyed). And yes, practicality – think machine-washable and expandable to hold up to 40 lbs!
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.
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!)
