Saving our Earth…Baggie by Baggie! ~ GIVEAWAY!

One thing that we’ve been striving to do in the past few years is to take care of this earth that has been placed in our capable hands! This week (Wed. Apr. 22) is Earth Day! So to help celebrate and promote the fact that we MUST take care of our planet, I’d like to fill you in on some awesome earth friendly products from Lavish & Lime! In our home, we’ve done cloth diapers…we’ve done recycling…but one thing that we still use a lot of are plastic baggies. I did a bit of research to see plastic bag usage is like here in Canada…get this:

**The average family uses 700-1200 plastic bags per year!
**Canadians use 10 billion plastic bags each year.
**Approximately 28 million kgs of plastic bags end up in Canada’s landfills each year!

Yikes! That’s a whole lotta plastic baggies if you ask me! Ther is an earth friendly alternative to plastic baggies though and it’s a fun and easy to use Reusable Sandwich Wrap from Lavish & Lime. It is perfect for using in school lunches, work lunches, or even on a picnic in your backyard! And not only does it keep your sandwich (or snack) fresh, it also doubles as a place mat and gives you a clean place to eat your food. They are completely safe as well. The interior lining is BPA-free, lead-free and phthalate-free. The reusable wrap is safe, reusable, practical and perfect for anyone and any age. To go along with your reusable wrap, Lavish & Lime also has a variety of reusable lunch bags for both adults and kids! Check out the adorable animal shaped Munchler Lunch Bags for kids…or the stylish lunch bags for adults!

Lavish & Lime also offers a BRAND NEW green product line. They have some fabulous products here. I’m loving the idea of the All natural plant-based body/face paint! I’ve always been a bit leery of the normal face paint…I’m mean, it just CAN’T be that great for your skin. This is one products that would be fabulous to have on hand for face painting, carnivals or even Halloween. The paints are skin friendly, safe natural pigments that are easy to remove with water.

Another new product that really caught my attention is the Cardboard Activity Kits. Can you imagine how much fun kids could have with this?! Building, creating…playing! This is a do-it-yourself model kit that’s easy to build, fun to decorate and wonderful to play with. All pieces are pre-cut and pre-punched. They can be put together without glue and scissors using the slot-system. It is made of high-quality, recyclable cardboard so when your kids do tire of it, simply recycle it again. 🙂

WIN IT!

  47. I really like the 750ml Thinksport Water Bottle Thermos. I always carry a water bottle with me, but if I’m out for a while the water tends to get warm and yucky tasting. This would keep it cold and fresh tasting for a long time!!

  48. Something we do to be earth friendly is to use our reusable shopping bags all the time. I’ve got 2 IKEA bags and 2 Sam’s Club bags for when we buy in bulk…and about 6-7 Sprouts bags (including one cold bag) that we rotate thru for regular shopping. I also always keep a Chico bag in my purse for unplanned purchases.

  49. I use cloth diapers and use reusable grocery bags when I shop for anything.

  50. i like the envirosax!
