This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Natural Living Blog Carnival hosted by Happy Mothering and The Pistachio Project through the Green Moms Network. This month our members have written posts about areas of their life where they aren’t as “green” as they may want to be.
So I have some not so green products in my home still (gasp). I have a 2 year old son and a husband who breaks everything! Seriously! I bought a pair of nice glass rose ornaments on our honeymoon and when we got back he broke one. It’s supposed to be a pair not one! Not to mention all of the glasses that we had that are not so slowly being broken.
So in the top right hand corner of one of our kitchen shelf sits at least 100 plastic cups, about 30 plastic spoons and 10 or so plastic forks, in addition to some small plastic plates.
Now on to the baby. I have no preamble like I had for my husband and son so I’ll cut right to the chase; my daughter is still using those little plastic bowls for her food. They have nice lids and are so convenient when traveling around for long periods and I need to take something for her to eat.
Sure I know I need to get to the point where we are not using these plastic items, but I couldn’t keep cleaning up broken glass and plates every time, so something had to give!
And last but in no means least, there are sooo much body washes, hand and liquid soaps and shampoos in our cupboards that I know are not the best. And to tell you the truth, I have not and right now, I will not be reading those labels. These are compliments of my mother-in-law, who sends them to us all the time. But to be honest I like the way some of the body washes and hand soaps smell and so does my husband.
These items are soon going to be in the past in our home. Right now I am looking at some wonderful recipes for natural lotions, soaps, body scrubs. Here’s a little peek at a foot Soak and Scrub that I made.
It’s called Cinnamint Blast Foot Soak and Scrub. I’m going to do up a nice label and make it really attractive and post the ingredients later.
But anyway, hopefully I’ll buck up and get cracking at making my home more ” green”. But what am I going to do about breaking the plates and glasses?? This one might take a bit more time and money on my part.
