Going Green – Recycling – Saving the Planet – Tikkun Olam

We as a family try to be very conscious of the things we can control with respect to “greening-up” and sustaining our environment. I bring my own canvas bags grocery shopping. We recycle everything – from junk mail, to water bottles, to soup cans. Everything gets tossed into our recycle box. I kid you not; I probably make at least five trips to the recycle box each day. I also try to turn off lights when we’re not in the room and unplug unused appliances. These are little things. But they make a difference. And once you get into the habit of doing them, the acts of conserving become second nature.

Sophie’s preschool is also doing their part to sustain the earth and practice tikkun olam (Hebrew phrase of repairing the world). The school’s director and the teachers strongly prefer kids bring their lunches in containers and reusable sacks, and encouraged us to avoid plastic Ziploc baggies if possible. So I went over to Etsy to see about finding some reusable sandwich bags. I had no idea the possibilities!

I was very lucky to find homemade reusable sandwich and snack bags from Crafts By Diana. I bought the bags featured below and they arrived in the mail nearly the next day.

I love these bags! They are very sturdy, cute, and best of all, reusable! And all I need to do is toss them in the wash and they’re good as new. And Sophie loves them! She thinks they are just the coolest thing and can’t wait to see what I pack in them.

So in honor of saving the earth and this being my 100th blog post, Crafts By Diana has very graciously agreed to help me giveaway a set of her amazing reusable bags. You pick the color and design. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post. That’s it. Simple and easy. It’s just a way for me to share these awesome bags and celebrate my 100 posts with you. I’ll take posts through Monday, October 25, and the winner gets to choose their awesome reusable bags.

In closing, let me say thank you to Crafts By Diana for her donation. And THANK YOU to my readers for reading me through 100 posts!

    Cool! I never knew this existed. We use plastic zip bags that I wash and reuse until they get holes or rip. I’ve done that for years – but these are much cuter.

    Pick me! Pick me!

    We too use cloth snack bags from etsy. A friend of mine makes and sells them too. I love all of the different styles and fabrics.
