Clean Hands. Clean Dishes. Clean Oceans. Take the Pledge!

Method Ocean Plastic Bottles

This month Method introduced the world's first bottle made with ocean plastic filled with a new 2 in 1 dish and hand soap (minus dirty ingredients). The soap is exactly what I've grown to trust in my household but it's the bottle that really captured my attention. It's made from a blend of recovered ocean plastics and post consumer recycled plastic. While I don't live ocean-side or even visit the ocean more than once every 5 years or so, I do … [Read more...]

#PinkYourSink with NEW Botanical Garden and Mimosa Sun from Method


I think it's safe to assume that the majority women are well aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For years it has been promoted with an onslaught of pink colored products on the shelves each promising a small fraction of the purchase being donated to a Breast Cancer focused charity.

We Choose Cartons – And Why YOU Should Too!

When I was about 12 or so I became very aware of the "green" movement before it became popular. I pestered my parents for weeks about starting a recycling bin for our cans. Eventually they gave in and we were recycling all of our household cans (and any I could find from litter bugs on the streets). Years later, I haven't been as conscientious about recycling as I should be. However, it's something we're changing right this very minute. My … [Read more...]

Home Farming Challenge | Building a Raised Vegetable Farm Bed

L shaped raised bed garden frame

Now that we are well into April, I'm really excited to share with you my home farming updates, which include the construction of our raised bed farm and seed planting. Before diving right into the construction process, I think it's important you know that as a family, we are novices in the world of home farming. My one previous attempt at a vegetable farm was a sad, very sad attempt that resulted in very little crop to harvest and an abundance of … [Read more...]
