Happy Earth Day! {illustration}


Today is the day people around the world think about how to take care of our beautiful home, the earth. I recently saw a segment on TV about a family who has practically zero waste. (Read about them at Sunset Mag.) While I admire how they live, I'm not sure I can take living green that far.
Here is what I know I can do for now:
• bring my own bags to the store
• limit buying bottled drinks - use re-usable bottles for my water
• use microfiber cloths to dry hands and wipe down counters - minimizing paper towels
• recycle as much as possible (duh)
• limit plastic baggies by using re-usable snack bags

Speaking of snack bags - my friend Alyssa from Semilla Snack Bags is having a sale for Earth Day. Check out her site and see the adorable patterns she has available for her bags.  Next year, I'll add to the list - we are looking in to powering our press with solar! Now, go out and live every day as if it were Earth Day!

{I did the illustration above for The Union-Tribune on Earth Day in Balboa Park}
