Guest Blog Post: Earth Day 2011

Today I am excited to share a guest blog post by Christy Aune from Kids Konserve, a company that makes waste-free lunch products.  Thanks, Christy, for a great piece about the importance of saving the planet by reducing waste.

Kids Konserve Eco-Resolutions for 2011 was about adopting the 5th 'R' – REMEMBER - into our daily life.  I would like to ask if you are writing a piece for Earth Day to REMEMBER Kids Konserve.  Earth Day is April 22, 2011.  Each year on this day thousands of people celebrate the Earth and what it means not only to them, but to the human race as a whole. Others use this day to bring the public’s attention to Earth and the effects our lifestyle is having on the planet. This day is a great day to spend time with your children and teach them more about the environment around them.  Our children are the leaders of the future. It is important that they learn the importance of the environment now, instead of waiting until they have grown.  (http://earthday2011.net/)

When I first shared the news with owners Chance Claxton and Lynn Julian of Kids Konserve about the whale that died in Seattle possibly from ingesting plastic bags their reply was a solemn one, “So very tragic.  Good reminder as to why we are doing this!”  Kids Konserve offers a product BUT most importantly Kids Konserve is a message.  Kids Konserve spreads the word about the importance of REUSE.  The company recently celebrated their 2nd Anniversary and they are driven by the amazing response they have received and warmhearted by the impact that they are making. Kids Konserve continues to grow and become more and more meaningful.
