Photo Black Friday

So, how are you spending your Black Friday? Have you hit up the doorbuster sales, or are you choosing to avoid the shops and spend a little time in nature? Or are you decorating for the holidays?

I personally can't wait to get some decorating done this weekend, and hopefully getting our tree!

As I'm currently in an airport en route back home, I'm thankful for the time I got to spend in nature this past week. It's been a nice break from the day-to-day routines, and I'm feeling recharged for the holidays.

How is your Thanksgiving break going so far? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Thanksgiving from Eco Cajun!

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all! I hope you are all having a joyous holiday, however you may be celebrating.

There's so much negativity in the world that can consume us, but today, think about what you're thankful for. There's still a lot of good, immediately around you and all over the world.

Every year, I say I'm thankful for all of you who read and follow along, and most importantly, follow eco-friendly principles in your own life. I'm thankful for the environment and everything it gives to us, and I'm thankful for those who are dedicated to protecting the environment.

In case you missed it last week, check out some tips on how to celebrate Thanksgiving and the following big shopping days sustainably!

Now, back to prepping for Thanksgiving dinner!

Stretching the Life of Candles

My husband and I love to keep a year-round supply of candles in the house, so we pretty often have a collection of candles that are almost-fully burned out.

But instead of throwing out glass jars that have a little bit of wax left in them, my husband has embraced an awesome repurposing project - combining the wax to make new layered candles!

Photo Friday | Why Are You Littering?

I know we're all gearing up for holiday mode, so I'll keep it short and sweet today!

A few weeks back on Instagram, Polly from Green Indy Blog shared this sign from NICHES Land Trust in Indiana. The organization works to protect public lands in their area, and recently put up new signs for litter prevention.

NICHES' mission is to protect, restore and sustain northern Indiana’s ecosystems by providing habitat for native species and offering natural places for education, appreciation and enjoyment of current and future generations.

I'm quite a fan of snark, and this sign makes me laugh every time I see it. It's sadly true, and hopefully it makes people stop and think a minute about why they may be littering. Thank you to NICHES for bringing a little humor to a serious problem!

If you're gearing up for some Thanksgiving week travel, I hope you have a safe and fun time. Be patient and be thankful this week. :)

Planning Your Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving Weekend

Are you guys ready for Thanksgiving and the official start of the holiday season? Yeah, me either. The holidays are one of my favorite times of the year, and while the 2017 holidays will be very bittersweet for me, I'm choosing to focus my efforts into the things I love. I'm so ready to put our Christmas tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving!

I've got some fun content planned out for the holiday season - be sure to come back the week after Thanksgiving to check out some new holiday shopping gift guides! I'm so excited to share some eco-friendly and fair trade gift ideas for anyone on your list.

But first, let's talk about how to have a more sustainable Thanksgiving.
