I try to be green by doing the big things, recycling, composter, rain barrel, gardening, CSA farm. There are little things you can do too, and by little I mean little like Figs & Ginger's wee little earrings. As a green business they use recycled metals, post consumer paper, bio- degradable supplies etc.
In honor of Earth and Arbor Day, Figs & Ginger are doing something amazing... their first annual Earth Day Giveaway. If you plant a tree and send them a picture of it, they will send the first 50 people a tree necklance and fawn earrings. After that the following 300 will get fawn earrings. (they can be used as tie tacks for the guys who plant!)
How. Cool. Is. That?! I love cute jewelry. I love trees. What's not to like? My parents are always planting trees around their house... dogwood, plum, apple. So Aaron and I planted a new little peach tree in our back yard.
I think we are going to have to put a small fence around it because Oscar has already tried to "water" it for us.
Be sure to check out the Figs & Ginger Earth Day Giveaway and plant a tree!
