So I celebrated Earth Day a little early. I was the lucky winner of the great selection of handmade earthy goodies by a group of Artfire sellers that I got in the mail last week. I won Risky Beads giveaway with all of the cool stuff in the picture above. I particularly love the Love Your Mama tote bag by NotMoira which I will be keeping in my car for all of my toting needs. The Antique Doll Part by CobWebPalace is also really unique. I haven't decided what I'm going to do with it yet but I'm intrigued.
My earth day tip of the day is to check out 41pounds.org. Mike just did it a few weeks ago so we haven't seen the effects yet but they claim to get rid of the majority of your junk mail. From their website:
"The average adult receives 41 pounds of junk mail each year.
Our service stops 80-95% of unwanted catalogs and junk mail
for you. We’ll contact dozens of companies on your behalf to
STOP YOUR JUNK MAIL and PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT."
