We’re Moving to A New Shiny Happy Blog!

You heard it right – ecosumo did some upgrading to its blog so that we could organize content better, share content with more social media venues, and make things just a wee bit easier on us to manage.  So as of RIGHT NOW, we’re going to start posting our content at – dun, dun, dun! – www.ecosumoblog.com.

One awesome new part of www.ecosumoblog.com is that it is prepped (not active, but the foundation is there) to have a whole community profile system where you’ll be able to interact with other community members – share green tips, network with other eco-netizens, and even coordinate to meet up in the real world for grass roots efforts to do things such as plant trees, create a gardening commune, and a zillion other tree-huggy hippie love child save the planet stuff that we love!

We’ll have all the same categories and all the content from this blog is moved over there already so you can still research all our previous content.  This blog will be kept live for a few months while we get www.ecosumoblog.com indexed with the search engines.

And the People Said Let There Be More Sacks…And There Were.

You heard us – we have more reusable sacks for all you eco-conscious aficionados out there with a diehard penchant for looking sweet while you refuse to waste.  We’ve added quite a few new reusable bags to the line – each of which can be utilized for shopping of any sort, traveling, or just plain sported for an evening out with friends.

All these sax are lightweight, portable, and waterproof.  Each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags, thanks to reinforced seams.  The Graphic Series Pouch is a great way of purchasing all 5 bags at once. The pouch is small enough to fit into a glove compartment or a medium to large handbag.

Check ’em out!

1. The Animal Planet Pouch: Lions and Tigers and Bears…well, dogs and wrens and butterflies is more like it.  And they’re exquisitely multi-colored and a holistic reminder of some other beasties that inhabit this planet we too often take for granted at their expense.  Get the 5 pack (equivalent to 10 plastic shopping bags BUT THESE ARE RESUABLE!! REUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBLEEE!!!)

2. Candy Bag: Sure, you can fill it with candy.  This retro unit would make Mary Tyler Moore smile and throw on a pillbox hat.  Rock out with the colors of royalty (purple and black) with some bold Mondrian style over your shoulder.

3. La Boheme: Take it to the opera, pal!  Dig on this sack inspired by a fusion of the romanticism of Bohemia and the ideals of the Art Nouveau movement.  This new style is pushing conventional boundaries, breathing new life into eco-friendly products with the focus on beautiful design and reusability; bringing art not only into everyday life but an eco-conscious life.

Vacation Idea: National Forest Foundation

Summertime Rolls are here and we want to encourage you to get some wilderness bliss into your life by taking yourself and/or your family to one of America’s gorgeous national forests.  One top-notch tool to help you with all the planning needs is the National Forest Foudation website.   Not only are they extremely transparent about funding and their charter, but they have a dynamite Carbon Emissions Calculator, a state-by-state Locate A National Forest interactive map.

Take some time to poke around the website – especially under the Conserve and Connect headers – to find out about all sorts of great initiatives you can get involved in.  And don’t neglect planning a vacation or even weekend getaway to your nearest national forest – its a great getaway, your money supports keeping those forests maintained for the public, and aren’t you tired of Mickey Mouse, pink eye, and $7 ice cream cones already?

Peace…ecosumo
