An hour of effort can lead to a better world. Check out 5 things you can do to take care of the earth. We are all called to do our share to help the environment. Some eat organic. Others participate in community clean ups. Most of us recycle. There are so many wonderful ways to care for our planet. Here are a few that take little effort—and even better—very little time, yet make a (better) world of difference. Get the Hang of ItThe dry cleaning industry goes through about 3.5 billion wire hangers a year. That’s about 200 million pounds of steel dumped in landfills.

Retailer Spotlight: Green Eileen For 30 years, Eileen Fisher has been making great clothing. She’s also donated millions of dollars to non-profits, environmental causes and organizations that support women and girls empowerment and education locally, nationally and internationally. Fisher has furthered what she calls her “social enterprise” by launching a second Green Eileen recycled clothing store in Seattle (the first opened in Yonkers, New York in 2011). There she resells gently worn Eileen Fisher clothing contributed by customers and employees. If it can’t be resold, the company finds its next best life. The clothing is made to last so if a donated sweater has a hole, for example, it may be remade into a child-size garment. It’s an... Continue Reading →
For the last 138 years, the White House has hosted an Easter Egg Roll where kids race across the South Lawn rolling an egg with a long wooden spoon. This year was different from all others—this year my family and I were among the 35,000 guests. Free tickets for the White House Easter Egg Roll are made available every year for six days in February through a lottery system on the Recreation.gov website. The last two years, we signed up with no luck. Thanks to some wonderful cousins with White House connections, we scored three tickets. We found out Thursday March 24; thirty-six hours later we started our 11-hour drive to DC. The White House Easter Egg Roll... Continue Reading →
March is National Nutrition Month so we asked our LooHoo community how they bring nutrition into their home. Almost everyone agrees: Fresh is best. Whether it’s a bowl of fruit or veggies at every meal, nutrition begins in the home and not by eating out. While some support local growers at farmers markets, others grow their own produce (kids in tow!) or have joined a CSA—Community Supported Agriculture—for regular delivery of local seasonal produce. Want to check out how others are making healthy food choices? Whip up a delicious smoothie, take a seat and read on. Plan it Out “Meal planning and lots of fresh veggies.” - Ruth E. “I work really hard to meal... Continue Reading →
If you’ve heard of coconut milk barista-style creamer, grass-fed yogurt or raw chocolate that’s organic, vegan, gluten free, soy-free and low-glycemic, you’ve likely visited Common Ground Grocery. For the rest of the health- and environmentally-conscious, a virtual visit to the Bloomington, Illinois market is in order. Common Ground Grocery opened in 1977 offering as many organic and locally grown items available. There wasn’t much at the time, but there was a need. Katha Koenes, who worked for the market for eight years before purchasing it in 2000, says the number of suppliers has grown considerably. “While ‘buying local’ and organic products aren't really new ideas for us, I'm happy there is more of an awareness in...
