Happy Earth Day!

El Pescador State Beach in Malibu, CA

I've also been a recycling addict. My co-workers used to tease me for carting boxes of discarded paper from the office to home just so I could recycle them. In addition to recycling, there are plenty of things you can do. The list below was provided by my brother, my official resource management/ environmentalist connoisseur.
  • buy organic, but also buy local; if you live n NYC and you buy some organic strawberries from CA, it might be good for your body, but remember the fuel required to get those berries to you. Barbara Kingsolver writes in her book, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life" that the transportation of 1 calorie worth of perishable fruit from CA to NY requires ~87 calories in fuel
  • buy what's in season, or better yet garden, and freeze/dehydrate/can excess
  • if you're a meat-eater, eat vegetarian a couple times a week
  • replace incandescent bulbs w/ CFL's or LED's
  • it's impossible to completely rid your life of plastics, but at least cut their use down (buy in bulk avoiding excessive packaging, use your own tote bags when shopping, etc.). many plastics are proving to be bad for your health, are a petroleum product, and they don't break down well/at all, etc.
  • compost; many municipalities offer free or greatly reduced in price, compact and easy to use composters; or build your own (not that hard to do)
  • apply "eco-mindset" to purchases; not just relating to the products/manufacturers/country-of-origin themselves, but the companies distributing/selling them (it's not fair to blast China for their lax regulations while also buying their products on the cheap)
  • walk/bike/carpool

dreams never end

Our newest project, vintage!
I've been hunting for treasures since I was a little girl, spending entire weekends going from yard sale to yard sale with my mom. I fell in love with finding unique pieces, each with it's own story to tell. But it has now come to the point where I need to start unleashing my collection, and so begins "dreams never end".

New Limited Edition Styles

One of my favorite things about doing the screenprinting in house for Every Little Counts is having the freedom of experimentation. Unfortunately, up until now we haven't too much time for this. BUT, there will definitely be more in the future!
Limited edition styles are available exclusively in our Etsy shop.

Etsy Love: deedoubleyou

I am so happy I stumbled onto the Etsy homepage at the moment this lovely Etsy shop was featured. Head adornments are quite popular right now, but I am especially fond of this Canadian line. Way more interesting than your straight-up headband with an almost turban- like quality minus the often intimidating ostentatiousness, practical for everyday, and affordable!

Featured above: One-of-a-kind Coral & Nude Headband, $20
Josephine Head Wrap in Grey, $15

p.s. Danielle at deedoubleyou is hosting a giveaway on her blog for the Josephine Headwrap! I am sort of reluctant to share this information for purely selfish reasons, only because the more people I tell, the less of a chance I have at winning! But, nevertheless, click here for your chance to win. But you only have until midnight tonight to enter!
