Surviving the Smoke

Did you know that EcoPiggy is based out of beautiful Ashland, Oregon? We have lots of rain in the winters here, but it is very hot and dry in the summers. Southern Oregon’s summer weather includes the potential for wildfires. Even if there isn’t a fire close by, we can still be affected by smoke drifting into and accumulating in our valley.  And right now, we are surrounded!

It’s really important to protect ourselves and our families to minimize health concerns due to inhalation of the fine particles in the smoky air. Running air conditioners and air purifiers with closed windows is recommended. Minimizing outdoor exposure as much as possible is advised,


Reuse. Reduce. Hydrate.

Did you know that the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) suggests about 5 ounces (or two kid-size gulps) of water or a sports drink every 20 minutes for an 88-pound child.  Offering healthy drinks regularly with Drink in the Box, Pura, and Kupp will help ensure proper hydration…and reduces waste. 

HealthyKids.  Healthy Planet.

Drink in the Box is Leak-proof when closed, Dishwasher Safe, and extremely Durable.

Sisters

These are my “little sisters”.  While most small children were asking Santa Clause for ponies, barbies, and ant farms, I was asking Santa to please bring me a sister.  And at the age of five, my wish came true.  Born the day after Christmas was my first sister Nicola.  Three years later, Antonia joined our family too.    While I missed out on some of the early years of mischief, and at times was the target for their mischief, these two women will forever be my cornerstone.   They spied on my first kisses, they read my diary, they killed my fish, they were present at both births of my children, and they’ve been with me through this past year of divorce.
