Eco Friendly Bath

Try bamboo towels.
There's a range of colors (orange, white, green, brown) - though bright, pretty inexpensive compared to what you'll find at places like Pottery Barn or

In 2006, Americans drank about 167 bottles of water each, but only recycled an average of 23 percent. That leaves 38 billion water bottles in landfills.

Bottled water costs between $1 and $4 per gallon and 90 percent of the cost is in the bottle, lid and label.

According to the Beverage Marketing Corp, the average American consumed 1.6 gallons of bottled water in 1976. In 2006 that number jumped to 28.3 gallons.

It takes over 1.5 million barrels of oil to manufacture a year’s supply of bottled water. That’s enough oil to fuel 100,000 cars.

Eight out of 10 plastic water bottles become landfill waste.

In 2007 we spent $16 billion on bottled water. That’s more than we spent on iPods or movie tickets.

Plastic bottles take 700 years before they begin to decompose in a landfill.

If everyone in NYC gave up water bottles for one week they would save 24 million bottles from being landfilled; one month would save 112 million bottles and one year would save 1.328 billion bottles from going into the landfill.

Fiestaware - For Cheap!!!

I grew up with Fiestaware. Who knows now if that was stuff that had lead in it, but it was still pretty! My mom has all the different colors, mix 'n match when it comes to Christmas & Thanksgiving (though this year, we'll be cruisin!)... And so the stripes bring me back to childhood. These were found at JC Penney, which is pretty much the cheapest place to buy Fiestaware -

Fiesta Bongo striped chair pad: $36, originally $52
Fiesta set of 3 mixing bowls: $129.99, originally $189.99
Enjoy the cheapness while it lasts!


So as I'm surfing the internet about more green ways to live, I've hit myself in the forehead. Buy cloth napkins. Less waste in the landfills. So I bought some, but I still have paper napkins. What the hell do I do with them? Well, I guess I can bring them to work and donate them to the party box or something...

Pier 1 napkin, $2.50

Doggie Do Do, What Do You Do With It???

We compost it!

We use BioBag Doggie crap bags. They do actually biodegrade. They are available on Amazon for quite a bit less than what you might find in stores. I buy the bulk. We do have a golden, so the large doggie bags are the best to buy. Seriously - they work well picking up poo!
