December Specials

Happy Holidays....Green The World is offering several specials in the month of December. Simple Shoes and Bags, in stock only, are $10.00 off. All Green The World and Plastic Bags Blow t-shirts are buy one get one 1/2 off. All Maggies lounge wear is $5.00 off along with the billboard belts and Little PackRat Backpacks. More specials will be offered throughout the month so please stop buy and give "green" this Christmas.

There are several ways to go green at Christmas and help save money. Do not buy expensive gift wrap, use newspapers or re-use paper sacks you have or magazines. You can also make bows with the same paper by cutting it into strips and then curling with the edge of a pair of scissors. You can also use cereal boxes for gift wrapping shirts and cracker boxes, rice boxes, any kind of empty food box to wrap gifts in. When sending Christmas Cards, try emailing and if you must send a card buy one made of recycled paper.

Please remember to take time for yourself and if possible, help those less fortunate. The holidays can be a time of stress and worry for many so do not overdo and enjoy the season with family and friends by staying home and playing boardgames and have potluck instead of spending money on a movie and dinner.

May peace be with you this holiday season and the New Year brings us all good health and happiness.

Happy Thanksgiving

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. Remember, if possible eat local and organic. If you are serving turkey, try and buy a free range turkey raised locally and preferably organic. Make time to relax with family and close friends and remember all we have to be thankful for. If you are fortunate enough to have extra, please share canned goods and any extra warm clothing to our local food banks and shelters. Thanks to all my customers who supported the clothing drive for Make A Difference Day, many items were donated and greatly apreciated by our local less fortunate. The "Green for the Holidays" class was a success and I look forward to the "Green for Spring class. Again, Happy Thanksgiving.

Good Morning, this is my first attempt at blogging so bear with me. I would love to have imput from anyone but for today I am attaching some information I found interesting. One of the top 10 things a person can do in an attempt to go green is to eat vegetarian at least once a week. I have been a vegetarian for over 30 years and I am about 95% vegan for a little more than a year. As you will read in the article I am attaching, by doing so will decrease your carbon footprint.

BERLIN (AFP) - Giving up meat could drastically reduce your carbon footprint, with meat-eaters' diets responsible for almost twice the emissions of those of vegetarians, a German study said on Tuesday.
A diet with meat is responsible for producing in a year the same amount of greenhouse gases as driving a mid-sized car 4,758 kilometres (2,956 miles), the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IOeW) said.
But the food a vegetarian consumes in 12 months is responsible for generating the same emissions as driving 2,427 kilometres, the IOeW said in a study commissioned by independent consumer protection group Foodwatch.
The calculations are based on emissions of greenhouse gases, including methane produced by the animals themselves, as well as emissions from food production including manufacturing feed and fertiliser and the use of farmland.
Going vegan -- giving up meat and dairy products -- would cut the emissions released in making what you eat more than seven-fold, to the equivalent of driving 629 kilometres, it said.
And if it is all organic, your food footprint is almost a 17th of that of a meat-eater -- the equivalent of driving 281 kilometres.
Beef is particularly environmentally unfriendly, it said, with producing a kilo (2.2 pounds) the same as driving 71 kilometres compared with 26 kilometres for pork.
Switching to organic farming can cut emissions dramatically, "but what counts is the way we feed ourselves ... production and consumption first and foremost of beef and milk must be cut drastically," the study said.
