I have been collecting ideas for my April favorites and it’s about time I posted them. These may seem a bit random, but definitely worth sharing! You’ll see a definite eco-friendly tone to some of my picks which is perfect for Earth Day coming up this weekend.
My life has changed since discovering Reusable Organic Un Paper Eco FriendlyTowels from NaturalLinens. I don’t buy paper napkins any more and I rarely use paper towels. This brings me one step closer to a more simple and sustainable lifestyle. I’m also using the dishcloths and face towels from NaturalLinens and love them too.
A Bowl Full of Lemons recently teamed up with Tide purclean to help spread the world about an awesome global initiative that will have a huge impact on the environment. You can take the Sustainable Laundry Pledge (which costs you nothing) and for each pledge received between now and Earth Day, Tide purclean will donate $5 to support World Wildlife Funds’s global conservation efforts, up to $250,000. You can also take part in their #CleanPledge by doing the following:
- Wash with cold water.
- Use an energy-saving HE washer & quick cycle.
- Take care of clothes to make them last longer.
My favorite Pinterest discovery this month is The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe from Eden at Sugar & Charm. I HAD to make sure she was telling the truth, and yes, after devouring two batches of cookies, she’s not lying.
I just received my first ever Bloom Box from Bloomerie Fabrics and it was filled with unique and beautiful fabric and notions. I don’t typically purchase subscription boxes because I feel like I would get things that I already have (working at a quilt shop means I “collect” a lot). What I liked about the Bloom Box is that you know exactly what you’re getting and the fabric included is customizable. I also ordered some solid fabrics and they included a nice note along with some buttons and fabric swatches. Their turn-around time is quick, too. (This is not a sponsored post – I’m just sayin’).
I’ve been reading How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind by Dana K. White. If you have “issues” with house cleaning, clutter and routines, this book will give you hope and have you laughing while you read about how to get your home under control. I’m starting with step 1, do the dishes (as in daily).
My son has been telling me that I have to watch the new Planet Earth II series. I finally purchased it on Amazon video last Sunday. He’s right, it’s magnificent and a great way to celebrate Earth Day.
I hope you enjoyed my April favorites and made some new discoveries. For me, this is like getting together with friends and sharing my latest treasures. Have an awesome day!
