***************************************************************************************

Happy Earth Day everyone! And in honor of Earth Day we are reviewing Sara Snow’s new book “Fresh Living”. You may know Sara from an episode of Jon and Kate plus 8 where she comes in to teach Kate more organic recipes. Sara really has become the face of green living. She has two different TV shows, “Living Fresh” and “Get Fresh with Sara Snow” on Discovery Health and FitTv. She also regularly appears on CNN and blogs for treehugger.com.
Sara’s book is a room by room guide on how to turn your home into a green home. If you have never even thought about this before I really recommend reading this book. It gives you an idea on what all you can do around your home, without breaking the bank. In each chapter Sara breaks down each topic to give you a generalized overview of what she’s talking about. For example, she gives you the top 15 plants to have in your home that help clean the air (did you know you should have anywhere between 15 and 20 plants in your home?). Sara also teaches you how to grow your own garden, complete with your own compost, shop organically and cook organically. If you saw the episode of Jon and Kate that I was talking about earlier she has the recipe for those breakfast bars they made (super yummy by the way!).
Now onto the fun part! Like I said before we are giving away a copy of Sara’s book, all you need to do is comment below with one thing that you are doing in your home to make it a green home. If you aren’t doing anything, check out Sara’s website and let us know what you would consider doing! You can also blog, tweet, follow and grab our button for more entries! Now that you’re done, get outside, enjoy the day and have a very happy Earth Day!

  1. I just blogged about the giveaway at:

  2. What a great giveaway! I visited her site and love the ideas of unplugging items, and switching out the lightbulbs.

  3. PS. I have your button and will follow up when I tweet & blog.

  4. Since we live in an apartment we can not do too much. We use the lightbulbs though and unplug appliances. When we leave the house we unplug our TV as well to save energy. Utilities where we live are HIGH as anything so we try to conserve ALL of the time what we can. No lights on during the day, daylight only! I mean, the sun is a natural light so why waste it with the curtains drawn?

  5. Awesome Way to Celebrate the Day! We use the pigtail lights, recycle cans, and I make our own baby food…no empty plastic/jars here! We are also planting a garden so that we can eat fresher! Love the Blog, I have a Button and I follow Daily!

    I recycle cans, dont buy water bottles but rather use plastic bottles over and over…hummmm oh and we use the energy lights. I think that is all I can do at this time as I can barely make it just keeping track of my large family. My trips are waking now..see I dont have much time

  7. Great giveaway! I’m really focusing on minimizing my waste by using totes and reuseable bags or if I have to use a plastic baggie I wash and reuse it. I’m also starting to implement cloths instead of papertowels. Little by little I already feel like I’m making a difference!
    Thanks, vancy31[at]gmail[dot]com

  8. Oh and I’m a follower, too.
    Thanks, vancy31[at]gmail[dot]com

  9. Oh, what a great giveaway!

    I’m composting (not as much as I should, but every bit helps) and have planted 10 trees in my yard with plans for more. We also have a garden. 🙂

  10. Great giveaway! I’m going to try that granola recipe. sounds yummy. i recycle religiously but I’d love to know how to do more around my home. 🙂

  11. We use only florescent bulbs, have a tankless hot water heater, recycle cans & I made my own baby food when the triplets were eating baby food. We also have a garden planted this year.

  12. Hi! Great ideas! Thanks for sharing! We’re trying to be greener too! We make our own baby food and use cloth napkins and washcloths for cleaning up the kitchen (rather than paper towels). We also bring soft kitchen towels to use as placemats when we’re eating out at play groups. This works wonders for eating and makes for an easy clean-up.

  13. We switched light bulbs and use a programable thermostat.

  14. Oh, I SOOOOO want to win this book! One thing that I do is recycling. I even try to get the kids involved. I am SOOO loving the idea of making cloth napkins. My kids are very much into using napkins these days and they go through too many!!!

  15. Oh, and i forgot to mention that another thing I am doing is that I have created a little mini blog within my main blog so that people can follow along to see what I am doing to “green” up our lives. I just started it a few days ago.

    If you can’t tell, I REALLY want to win this book. I don’t think there is anything more I can to to earn extra entries! 🙁

  16. I love Sarah Snow…

  17. We are trying to make the move to cloth grocery bags. There have been a ton of free ones lately so we were able to start our stash with no money out of pocket!

  18. Almost all of our lightbulbs are now CFL’s. Plus our neighborhood just started doing curbside recycling. Woo hoo!

  19. Thanks for sharing this wonderful woman with us! I am recycling with our curb side receycling program…I didn’t know how much before this of our trash is recycable…it amazing. We also save energy by doing our laundry at night in the least peak hours and have turned off the majority of our outside lanscaping water – and putting in water friendly plants in our backyard.

  20. We do lots of things to make our lives greener, we garden, compost, recycle, use cloth instead of paper towels. and we cook at home alot so I would love a cook book.

  21. Sean Patrick and Emma Jane

    We live in an apartment so its tough to do a lot here, but we do unplug things, recycle, and use the lightbulbs.

  22. When I replace a lightbulb I get the energy efficient one.
    I just started cloth diapering my 6 month old twins. I really want to start recycling household items (our neighborhood doesn’t have a program).
    I’m a follower. Love, love this blog and would love that book!

  23. Excited to learn more! We have unplugged alot, especially our older boys’ room! Since we got serious about recycling we don’t even fill up our 2 garbage cans anymore, even with 3 in diapers. We use cloth shopping bags, try to make most baby food. And just started using cloth towels and washcloths for our messes! We’re looking into a greenhouse as well.

  24. I’m a follower and i did a tweet about this giveaway too! I already use my own bags when I go to stores, we also recycle and try to conserve H2O. I am going to try to unplug all electronics that I’m not using (how silly, I never thought of that…oops). Great Giveaway! Happy Earth Day!!

  25. hello! We have your button!
    We cloth diaper in our house, as well as hang clothes outside!

  26. I’m a follower, and we have all the fancy pants lightbulbs, and we buy the majority of our children’s clothes secondhand.

  27. tweet! I TRY to take my cloth bags to the store, but if I don’t, we recycle the plastic bags for lunch bags, garbage bags, wet bags, etc.

  28. Blogged about you as well! I forgot we have a programmable thermostat, too!

  29. I plant many of the vegetables we eat,and recycle on a regular basis. My children know the importance of eating healthy and the value of conservation and practice what they can in their own homes now. I am fortunate that I am able to walk to work,so the use of the car is really kept to a minimum.

  30. We do several things – canvas grocery bags, reuse plastic baby food contaioners for school lunch snacks, sell on ebay what we can’t use anymore, and use recycled cereal boxes and such for mailing.

    See my BLOG for a post on your giveaway too.

  32. Hi again! Love all the ideas! Thanks for sharing everyone! We are fortunate to live in a community where we can make an effort to walk or ride to places rather than using a car. We have only put 600 miles on our car in the past 7 months! If I need some groceries, I just put the boys in their stroller and hike up to the grocery store! Instead of using bags, I just throw the groceries in the bottom of the stroller~ and we’re on our way home again!

    I’m going to make an effort to unplug everything from now on! Thanks for the tips everyone! And can’t wait to try that granola recipe!

    Oh- and yes- I added the button on my blog!!! 🙂 Enjoy your day everyone!

  33. Sorry I’m late, but it’s still Wednesday right? 🙂
