Happy Earth Day. I wanted to start out the day by giving the HipMomsGoGreen community a peek at some wonderful Earth Day specials. Before I go into that I just wanted to thank all of you who are working to make a difference to enhance, appreciate and protect our planet and its resources. When we look at our little ones and think of the quality of life for future generations it is an incredible motivation. Keep up the effort for a less-toxic world and thank you so much for being a part of this wonderful community that I appreciate so, so much.
At this time I would also like to give a special shout out to a couple of very special teachers that do their part and model wonderful eco practices for our boys at school. Ms. Maura from Mission Montessori launched a campaign for everyone to purchase eco-friendly lunch totes, reusable bags and containers for our school this year. She also sends me emails about “green” discounts and happenings on a regular basis. Mr. Jake at Mission Montessori Academy talks to the children about organic food and shares with my son where the best deals are located for produce. He also models wonderful eco-habits at school. Our school has a master organic gardener on staff (thanks Ms. Heather & Ms. Karen) to assist and educate our children while they plant and nurture the gardens at school. If your school is doing their part to educate your children about preserving our wonderful planet please let them know how appreciated they are. Have a wonderful Weekend!
