Journaling and planning with Ecojot

Are you a journaler or planner like me? Do you prefer the spiral spine so you can flip pages over without tearing or messing up your pages? If so I have found the company for you! Ecojot is a family-run business that makes beautiful journals and creative planners. The paper is 100% post-consumer recycled and made in Canada. The inks and glues used in them are based with veggies. If the planner or journal uses boards, then it comes from a sustainable company in North America. The company has won an award for being Earth friendly (Ancient Forest Friendly and Order of the Forest Award). On top of that they have campaigns in which they participate in Buy 1/Give 1 in which they donate books to kids in need all over the world. You get what you need to write in or plan life and kids get books. Seems like a win-win situation to me! Check Ecojot out on their website or pick up their products in a retailer near you. I purchased mine in Barnes and Nobel.


How your grocery list can make a difference.

If you are picking out a new salad dressing, pasta sauce, or frozen pizza at the grocery store why not choose one that is organic and helps out someone else? Newman’s Own does just that. Newman’s Own products are organic products made of the highest quality. They even have organic food for your pets.  Now, they don’t carry everything that is on your grocery list, but you can substitute a few of items from your list and make a difference.

How will you make a difference? Well, Newman’s Own give 100% of their profits and royalties to charities across the globe through the Newman’s Own Foundation. According to their website, the foundation has given away almost 200 million dollars to over 1000 charities since 1982. All of that money has been given away and helps out someone because people choose to use their … let’s say pasta sauce instead of their normal brand. It is an easy switch in order to support others in need.

Check out all the ways you can switch to support on their website Newmansown You can even read and watch videos about your switching impacts others.
