Green living? Advertise it!
Summer's the perfect time to advertise our green intentions, don't you think? First of all, for those of you with kiddos who are not yet potty trained, there's nothing like a brightly colored or patterned cloth diaper to instigate conversations about green living, right? In the summer, you don't have to cover up those adorable diapers, so every time you go out, your little ones are walking, or crawling, advertisements!
This is the time to put on some organic cotton or bamboo t-shirts with green messages, too. The goal is to prompt dialogue about the whys of eco-friendly products and the hows of environmental living. When someone finds out I'm "Green Grandma," the questions start immediately. But you don't have to be a green living blogger to engage in these conversations. It's up to all of us to start spreading our message.
Did you know that Cafe Press has a huge line of eco-friendly products displaying green living messages? Like this 100% organic cotton onesie:
Or this stainless steel reusable child's drinking bottle:
I personally like this 100% organic cotton jersey T:
Or this Made in the USA organic kid's shirt:
This bag isn't made from organic materials, but still is a good way to get your message out (generally, bags like this are made from canvas):
The other cool thing about Cafe Press is their Design Your Own section, with an amazingly wide array of products available to add your own logo, design, or photo to.
It's really worth checking out. I'm looking forward to having some custom made GG merchandise made. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
Of course, not all of their products fall into the "eco-friendly" category, so you'll have to put the term you're looking for into their search bar. If you type "organic," anything with the word "organic" in it will pop up. Just because an item is about organic, doesn't mean the material to make it is. For instance, a shirt might have an organic message, but not be made out of organic cotton. Just click on the product description to be sure.
Remember, this is the time to advertise your stand on environmental issues. Take advantage of it!
