It’s Earth Day 2012, and even though according to the Mayan’s we’re all screwed in a matter of months, I am still doing what I can to help save the Earth just in case we’re all still here December 22nd.
Even though my kids are little I try to teach them about the importance of recycling, how we can conserve energy, and the importance of doing what we can to reduce our carbon footprint.
Since my kids are all pretty little, this can occasionally be a challenge. I was happy, however, recently when they asked to plant trees after seeing The Lorax. It was great to see them take away a positive message from the film because we had a different result after watching the popular Disney movie, WALL-E, when my then three year old son said that he, “wanted to hurry up and cover the Earth in trash so we could blast off in rockets and live in outer space with robots.”
Kids can be so literal sometimes. So I try to get literal with my message of going GREEN.
Of course this suit offers multiple uses and can be worn with just about anything, anywhere:
After my last post, showing off my super pale skin in an actual bathing suit (which proves I officially have no shame left), an outfit like this helps prevent sun damage and sunburns. It’s got 10,000% UV protection, plus I think I sweat off about 10lbs when I was wearing it (#winning).
Anyway, in honor of Earth Day, I’m recycling these Green Mom photos which, if you’ve been following me a while, may look familiar.
