honey, can you get some greens from the store – I mean front yard…

Seriously, what could be better than getting freshly grown veggies from your front (or back) yard? This yard isn’t big – only 20′ x 80′ and we grow enough food to go thru middle October or so. If you don’t have the yard space, think about sharing a public garden with friends. If you grow it yourself, you don’t have to buy it packaged. Think about the zero waste aspect, too!

#Buzzfeed, Thanks for the Love!

We’ll be there.

We will be honoring Pete Seeger who is our local hero.  Pete said, “if you want to change the world, start at home.”  We think about that every time we kayak, walk by or look at the Hudson River. Pete was an inspiration for ECOBAGS. Let us know if you’re going, too!

Oops, forgot my ECOBAGS®

Oops, forgot my ECOBAGS®

I want to thank Victoria for this blog post. Last night she said she thinks of ECOBAGS® (and me) every time she goes shopping for her family of four and is confronted by shelves of over-packaged but undeniably easy to purchase foods. What’s a mom to do?

I had to admit that I, too, succumbed to “easy” when my kids were younger but now I find it almost impossible to do so.  I can’t help imagine all the plastic bags, packaging and water bottles that keep washing up along the rivers and at the beach. So, the question becomes – what am I willing to give up in order to go with “easy.”

What I want is clean, clear and beautiful outdoor public spaces.  I want this more than I want or need  any packaged product. It took a long time  to get to this and I admit it’s not always “easy”, to be stringent in my choices because #Itsnoteasy when even the healthiest -organic and local choices are being sold in packaging.

What thoughts go through your head when you have to make a choice?
