It's another day and we're still here on planet Earth- time to boogie down and celebrate. Ok, maybe a little less boogie and a little more enviro-awareness, especially if you are one of the original boogie wonders... Whatever your views on global warming, cooling and everything in between, I think we all can agree that trying to be better inhabitants of Earth is something we should work on consciously every day no matter our age or experience.

Some of my favorite items on my green list is to always carry my own take out containers to restaurants, for coffee refills and use my own shopping bags. Simple acts that are easy to do, raises awareness and inspires others around you who may not have thought to do them. Here's some links that I find helpful to remind me to keep green.

And because I love all bags - whether dollar store, handmade, knit, crochet or sewn- I have to include to the list. They are durable, roomy, fun, and will definitely inspire you to use them daily. There are two new editions to the collection. Planet Green and Animal Planet. There's also a kids and a green grocer series. You will find various prices - and 25% off some of the single bags.

For most of us, going green is like committing to weightloss, once we decide to do it - the results are amazing. Even if we wander off the path, we know that we must jump back on and keep going forward. Just like knitting or crochet...

What a great caretaker you are, knitty earthling.

You know what would be interesting? A recycled yarn craft-along on earth day. I have this way-too-warm angora sweater that I have slotted for recycling, but I've never tried it before. Hmmm, maybe next year?
