Happy Earth Day!

A few sites to consider for Earth Day 2009.

Check out Together Be for some wonderful eco friendly baby traveling gear. The Peekaru is the first stylish and environmentally responsible fleece vest in the world that zips over a soft baby carrier to keep both parent and child warm to save parents from dropped blankets and bulky outerwear. Each Peekaru Original is made of 85% recycled Malden Mills fleece that is manufactured in the U.S. using the equivalent of 25 recycled 2 litter plastic soda bottles.

Send a virtual flower at Electrolux and donate $1 to Global Green USA to support their healthy green schools initiatives across America. Kelly Ripa launched Electrolux’s newest eco-friendly washer & dryer in limited edition “Kelly Green” just in time for Earth Day. Kick off an online campaign to encourage people to renew their commitment to living green by planting a virtual flower for a friend.

In honor of Earth Day on April 22, Tough Cookies Children's Boutique will donate 10% of all Lola & James purchases to Tree People, whose staff and volunteers work to plant trees and restore the pollution-damaged mountains of Southern California. Lola & James is an innovative, eco-conscious children’s clothing line created by Paula Scolaro-Sikking, a Montreal-born graduate of New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. The line features bold and creative looks such as vintage concert t-shirts, colorful designs made from recycled fabrics and materials, and customized recycled cashmere blankets. The line caters to both boys and girls, sizes 0/6 months to 10 years old. Celebrity clients have included the offspring of Kelly Ripa, Angelina Jolie, Courtney Cox, Eddie Vedder and Gwen Stefani.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Earth Day. I took the train and packed a lunch for work. Did you do something special in honor of this day?

OK, THAT picture of the Peekaru is not scary. The picture I put on my blog, where the baby face is sticking out of it's mother's boobs? Scary.

In fact, my coworker and I made a homemade Peekaru, and scared our coworker. It's on my blog from last week.
