You might like this sippy:
My son has it and it seems to work fine for him.
We have the KK sippy and never used it. It's too tall and doesn't have handles. But YMMV.
Can someone post a link to these Thermos cups and are they made in china?
Congress is about to vote on a new Farm Bill, which could be the first to include fair funding for organics. But to make this happen, our Representatives need to hear from us!
Act now. Add your name to the Grow Organics petition and join the fight for pesticide-free produce. EWG Action Fund's goal is 30,000 signatures by July 15. Tell Congress to vote for organics.
Tell The House to Green Up The Energy Bill
The Energy Bill, passed by the Senate last month, made important progress toward addressing America’s oil and environmental security—but it needs to be stronger. While the Senate did increase fuel economy standards for the first time in more than 30 years, they unfortunately included unnecessary loopholes that could undermine the new 35 mile per gallon standard. The bill also lacked a renewable energy standard requiring utilities to produce a percentage of our electricity from clean, renewable sources like the wind and sun. And the increase in biofuels production included in the bill needs stronger safeguards against global warming pollution to protect our air, soil, and water.
Thankfully, we still have a chance to strengthen this critical bill now that action moves to the House. Please let your representative know that you want an Energy Bill that locks in strong fuel economy standards, guarantees more clean energy for consumers, and ensures that biofuels are part of the global warming solution, not part of the problem.
Expecting #2 in May 2013!
I'm not sure exactly where to post this but figured someone here might know. I am looking for a good article on the leaching in all the plastic water bottles/containers etc. I just bought a bunch of stainless steel ones for myself, DH and DD and want a good article with facts to give to my parents about it. If anyone knows of a good one, please send me the link. Thanks!
i hate all that made-in-china stuff, too. it's not that i don't want chinese people to make stuff, but i don't need to support the kind of petroleum expenditure it takes to get it to me and i am leery about safety both of consumables (since the melamine dog food thing) and also w/ respect to the environment.
go local baby!
so i just got finished reading Barbara Kingsolver's new book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. what an inspiring read, especially at the very end. i really wanna grow more of our food, but some of you may have read my whining about our shady yard before. we do have a great farmer's mkt and belong to a wonderful CSA so that's comforting. the book is about food, but more than food, too. it's about local economies and self-sufficent communities (not survivalism) and really about how the little steps we can take may be enough even if we get disheartened and think they aren't -- they might just be. highly recommend it!
so, the other things i wanted to post to our tribe about are two petitions i got today. one is about organic foods --
and the other is on the energy bill:
pass 'em along!
|I don't post here much, but am definitely striving to make our lives more "green". For those of you that pack lunches daily, for kids or yourself, what do you use for packaging things such as grapes, pretzels, chips, and what not? I'm not buying "ziploc" type bags anymore and am looking for alternatives. Ideas?|
