If the Lorax speaks for the trees, what do you speak for? (giveaway)

The Lorax GiveawayWe are a family of Seuss-a-holics and as an eco-mama how could I not write about The Lorax?  When I first read The Lorax I knew that I had to share it with my kids.  I can remember the last time that I read it to my son a few years ago on Earth Day (we borrowed it from the library back then).  I’m not sure who the story touched more – me or my son.

You can only imagine my excitement when I heard they were making The Lorax into a movie!  I have a date with my kids later this week to watch it on the big screen and I’m going to spend the rest of the week making Lorax inspired crafts and recipes with them.

If you aren’t familiar with the story it’s about the Once-ler who finds these amazing truffula trees and decides to chop them down to make Thneeds.  By the end of the story there are no more truffula trees left and all of the animals in town have had to leave to find food, clean air, and fresh water.  It’s a very sad story about consumerism and how we constantly abuse our natural resources to make Thneeds (things we need).

At the end of the story we are left with this lesson:

“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” -The Lorax

I like to think that I care a whole awful lot – I hope that I do!  What do you speak for?  The trees, the animals, the oceans, the babies, yourself?  Whatever it is that you speak for I hope that you care a whole awful lot too.

This past weekend at Blissdom I had the pleasure of meeting The Lorax.  He was a furry little fellow who didn’t say a whole awful lot but I think I heard him say “Thank You!”  There was a lot of Lorax fun at Blissdom including a copy of the book for my kids, a Lorax themed party, and a fun new t-shirt.

    I care a whole awful lot that my children grow up happy and healthy and that they have a peaceful and beautiful environment to do so:)

    I care about my family, I care about making a positive impact on their future and the planet. I care about cloth diapers, healthy choices and making small changes everyday to improve our carbon footprint and our health. I care about smiles and health and happy memories in the making.

    I care about my family and our future on this earth. Teaching my kiddos young how to have a smaller carbon footprint growing up in a big family!

    I care about not leaving a bunch of trash when it could easily be done differently (aka. using cloth diapers vs. disposable or reusable shopping bags).

    I speak for cloth diapers by being a cloth diaper circle leader with the RDA. I am also passionate about living toxic free and eating organic as much as we can. :-)
