Can you believe this is the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day? Do you think things have gotten better or worse? The Kids are Grown, Now What?, Planet Weidknecht and Going Crazy, Wanna Go? are bringing you this giveaway hop. Each participating blogger is holding a giveaway for an earth friendly product worth at least $20.  Go forth and enter all of these wonderful giveaways and let us know what you are doing to celebrate Earth Day 2012!

Thanks for participating Grandma Juice Readers! This is not simply a one day type deal we should be concentrating on, right? Everyday we can ALL do just 1 or 2 simple things to help the Earth! Grab that candy wrapper you see walking down the street and toss it in the garbage. Just because the kid who ate it was to lazy to do that, you aren’t! I know you guys aren’t lazy! Do you separate your garbage from recyclables at home? We do! And, we give Ethan .50 a day extra on his allowance to empty the container of recyclables and take it out to the can in the garage. Do you encourage your kids to be Earth conscious? 
For my part in the Earth Day Birthday Giveaway, I’m doing something just a bit different. I’m going to giveaway a $20 AMAZON cash code! I’m hoping you’ll use it to buy some of the items I’m listing below that they sell on AMAZON to help do your part too! 
Let’s see some of the cool things they have!


Look at this awesome bowl!! (I may be buying this for myself, so if you want it, I hope they have more than just 1) It’s Handmade. Recycled magazines are cut, folded into thin strips and then rolled into small spirals. The spirals are glued to the outside of a bamboo bowl and treated with a food-safe, water repellant coating. Great for fruit or salad. 9"diameter, 4 ½"h. Totally cute, environmentally friendly and completely usable! Summer BBQ’s are coming up. Wouldn’t that look great filled with a fruit salad!!

Here’s a super fun looking book to help plan for all the kiddo’s parties and celebrations! How much money do you think you’ll SAVE by using the ideas in here? Why spend all that $$ to hire a clown who scares the small frys when you can do these! Naturally Fun Parties for Kids gives parents distinctive ideas and complete plans decorations, activities, recipes, and more — for celebrating with their families throughout the year. All 16 parties, 4 for each season, are inspired by nature, are cost effective, utilize recycling and other sustainable practices, and are incredible fun for all! From a fabulous homemade, all-natural spa party filled with floral-scented foot soaks and chocolate facials to a morning gathering in pajamas for a party with pancakes galore, there’s a party here for every personality. Cool idea, right?

Any crafty types in the house? I am so NOT crafty but looking through the pages of this beautiful book, I’m thinking there’s things in there that even I can make look good! And you know I’m totally showing it off when I do… watch for that post! “Eco Craft” delivers the goods in style with 30 truly beautiful home decor projects that elevate environmental consciousness to inspiring new heights. Every idea is amazingly clever: who would ever have imagined that plastic six-pack can holders could become a chic Moorish-inspired filigree tri-fold screen? Or that glass baby-food jars would make a charming candle chandelier? Every project features at least one beauty shot in a modern home setting and handy icons spotlight key techniques, materials and the estimated time to complete each one. Who knew taking care of the planet could look so good?

Ethan liked this! He decided he wanted us to buy this and ditch the one we have. See, even 5 year olds know what’s up!

OMGLEEE!!!! I just stumbled into this right before I was going to stop. SO CUTE!! Made in USA using new LEGO pieces and encrusted with Swarovski Crystals. Clasp is actually the Legos! It comes gift wrapped and is also available in red, green, gray… SWEET!!!

Also… Here’s a link to some super cute upcycled clothing and accessories. Just stay away from that Sock Monkey Scarf… It’s ALL MINE!
