we’re just a little more than a month away from the end of our school year, and that means it is project time in the kinnaird house. charlie is working on a major science report dealing with climate change and global warming; very fitting considering that april is earth month, and earth day is just a week away.

helping charlie with his research has been eye opening. our planet is warming. droughts and storms are more severe. the oceans are changing. ice is melting. animals are losing their homes.

what started as a coast to coast rally for a healthy, sustainable environment has turned into “the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people” ~ earthday.org

there are many ways we can do our part. we can reduce our waste, start composting, and stop using disposable plastic. we can recycle more and stop all the annoying junk mail that comes to us every day. reduce our carbon footprint, shop locally  when possible, and when making trips to the grocery store, we can build a better cart by purchasing healthy products from brands that produce responsibly.

during the month of april, safeway has teamed up with whitewave foods and earthbound farms for the every cart counts promotion. build a better cart by loading up with all of your favorites from earthbound farms, silk, horizon, so delicious, vega and simply pure and safeway may buy your entire cart.

every cart counts

one of my biggest concerns when it comes to the kids’ health, is that they don’t eat enough greens. so I try to sneak them in whenever i can, and what better way than with a thick and delicious berry green  smoothie bowl.
