Adult Eco Easter Basket

  • Fair Trade Basket. Use a fair trade basket as an Easter basket and then reuse the basket for something else.
  • Towels as filler. Instead of using the "grass" that is usually in Easter baskets, substitute for dish towels that can later be reused.
  • Organic Delish Fish. The popular Swedish style fish candies in organic form.
  • Silione Food Bags. These always come in handy when storing food on the go. Great for lunches.
  • Eco Wine. The Crossings is a brand that my husband really likes and I didn't know it was an eco wine until I was doing research for this post.
  • Eco Dying Kit. Have fun dying eggs with this eco dying kit.
  • Face Wash. Who doesn't love a good, eco face wash?
  • Eco Modern Concierge Gift Certificate. Give the gift of getting stuff done. Hire a professional organizer or personal assistant to tackle that to-do list. 
  • Eco Hammock. Spring is the perfect time to whip the hammock out and this eco version looks fun. 
  • Organic Gardening Book. Spring is the perfect time to get started on that organic garden.
  • Organic Cold Brew Coffee. Cold brew coffee perfect for those hot days ahead and it is earth positive.
  • DoTerra Purify Essential Oil. One of my clients made a cleaning solution with this oil and it smelt amazing.

Shoe Closet Organization: Before & After

Being a professional organizer in Houston you see all kinds of different closets from big to small. This small closet has just a little space for shoes. The most under utilized space is usually vertical space. So we used shoe boxes for most of the heels /dressy shoes and more sandals / casual shoes we left in the open. How do you like to organize your shoes?

5 Things to Organize This Weekend

Here are 5 things that you can organize this weekend:
  • Your water bottles. Most of us have SO many. Downsize on them.
  • Your Tupperware. If it doesn't have a matching top or bottom get rid of it.
  • Garden supplies. Spring is here time to purge old garden supplies that no longer work, are broken or are dry rotted.
  • Get rid of extra pens and pencils you no longer use.
  • Socks with no matches.

Made in the USA: Linne Beauty

I got these products in one of my Beauty Heroes boxes. I love that they are made in the USA. I am not a huge fan of the body wash, but really like the face wash and you can also use it as a mask. Do you have any favorite eco beauty products?

5 Eco Changes you Can Make This Weekend

Below are 5 simple things you can do this weekend to help you on your journey of becoming more eco.

  • Change your light bulbs to LED. Ikea and Home Depot have affordable LED bulbs. 
  • Bring your own bags to the grocery
  • Start recycling if you don't already. Find out if your neighborhood trash company picks up recycling or where the closest recycle center is to you.
  • Don't overbuy. When you overbuy you produce more waste, so try to be mindful of what you are spending your money on. 
  • Turn off the lights. When you are not in a room, turn off the lights.
