This past September, my family and I went on our very first family vacation in years. I can't remember the last time we went on a trip that lasted longer than a weekend and didn't include driving for ten hours. We flew to Southern California for my cousin's wedding and took the children to Disneyland for the first time. The entire family was so happy to be someplace else other than our 100-degree home state that we didn't want to leave. Our vacation lasted almost seven days, but it took months of planning, making sure it worked within our teeny tiny budget and most importantly, within our sustainable lifestyle. So how does a family of 5, including a baby who is still in (cloth) diapers enjoy the beaches of the West Coast and the magical kingdom without straying (far) from our mission to stay green and live healthy? Let me tell ya - it wasn't easy, but we did it!
In the coming weeks, I'll be adding several posts about our trip, sharing with you how we continued our green and healthy lifestyle, showing how you can do the same, and including lots of reviews on the wonderful products sponsored to us for a wonderful vacation. Until then, let me share with you the links of the people and companies who helped us keep our carbon footprints smaller while being away from home:
