Treat Yourself to Eco Friendly Jewelry for Earth Month

Treat Yourself to Eco Friendly Jewelry For Earth Month

Thank you to Ecotopia for sponsoring this post. 

Happy Earth Month! Don’t you think April is the perfect month to celebrate our beautiful planet? With plants bursting out of the ground and flowers beginning to bloom – it’s nature’s way of saying Hey – don’t forget all that I do for you!

And while I’m not a big fan of buying more stuff just because of Earth Month, I do think it’s a good time to reflect on the choices we make when we do purchase things. I talk a lot about mindful shopping on this blog – asking questions like Do you really need this? Can you reuse something you already have? Is there a more earth friendly option? 

But let’s be realistic here- sometimes it’s fun to buy something nice for ourselves. A little splurge. For me it’s jewelry or beauty products. I feel best if it’s something earth friendly and artisan-made though, instead of cheaply made stuff you can get anywhere.

Not to twist your arm, but Ecotopia, a web store specializing in handmade, eco-conscious products (and one of my blog sponsors over the past year), has some really beautiful and unique eco friendly jewelry on their site – and a lot of it is on sale for Earth Month!

The prices are very reasonable – and shipping is a flat rate of $5.95 (or free over $100). I have to admit, I’m coveting a few of these items myself! Plus thinking about gifts for later – because it never hurts to shop ahead.

Take a peek! Or just jump over to the sale pages for recycled glass and wood jewelry.

Elements of an Eco Friendly Kitchen: Countertop and Tiles

Eco friendly kitchen via mindfulmomma.com

Designing a new kitchen is something I have dreamed about for a very long time. Long before I owned my own home, I subscribed to magazines like Metropolitan Home (anyone remember that one?) and oogled over photos in the New York Times Home & Style sections. I've kept folders full of inspirational ideas and more recently become … [Continue reading]

This post is sponsored by Modern Kids Design. Shopping. When was the last time you really felt good about it? Sure, you get the products you need and want, but does your purchase lead to any greater good for the world? Seems like more and more people are asking this type of question before they shop. I know I am. I feel better when I … [Continue reading]

Fair Trade Jewelry from Faire Collection www.mindfulmomma.com

Let's face it. Unless you live in California or Arizona, it's been a long, tough winter. Here in Minnesota, school is closed for the 8th time this year due to extreme weather. I feel the need for an escape - even if it's just in my imagination! I'm heading to the beaches and jungles of Vietnam and Ecuador. Want to come … [Continue reading]

Greener Holiday Cards From Pear Tree Greetings {Giveaway!}

PTC Happy Holidays card www.mindfulmomma.com

The first snow of the season arrived a few days ago. I have to admit I was a bit crabby at the sight of it. Not that I didn't appreciate the beauty of the bright, white snow glistening on top of the cheerful, Fall leaves. The transition from Fall to Winter is always hard for me. Is it hard for you too? In Minnesota we only go about 6 … [Continue reading]
