Cloth diapering felt like a doable thing for our family, so I was willing to give it a try to make a difference in this area. When I say that being less [...]

This post contains affiliate links. The holidays are a beautiful and nostalgic time of year. Timeless carols and hymns get played while we bake platters of cookies and other treats. We sit by warm and toasty fires as we drink coffee and cocoa, watching It's A Wonderful Life or A Christmas Carol (I like the Muppet version ;)). Caroling, driving around to look at Christmas lights, and cutting down your own Christmas tree may all be part of your family traditions for the season. Another big part of the season is PRESENTS!

While we have known how detrimental excess plastic is for the environment for quite some time now, the average person is only just recently starting to see how serious the problem is. From the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (an area in the ocean spanning about 600,000 square miles that is saturated with small pieces of plastic that pose a great danger to marine life) to plastic mounds found all over the earth (plastic has been found everywhere from Antarctica to Mt. Everest), we have a bit of a problem on our hands. Reducing plastic and waste isn't a simple [...]
