a dash of motherhood… a sprinkle of homeschooling… and a pinch of photography ( with a side of compassion )

#InYourPalm

Did you know you that Palm oil is found in over 50% of processed foods (candles and grooming products as well) and  this is destroying the rainforest where many animals live and affecting the local people that live there as well?

Here is great information about palm oil and what you could do to stop this at rainforest rescue 

Remember “Every dollar you spend … or don’t spend… is a vote you cast for the world you want.” so let’s send a strong message!

The power is In Your Palm!

homeschool weekly photo challenge ~ fav book

Favourite books… well that is a hard one as it depends on my mood and the kids as well… but here is a small sample 🙂

These books are great for teaching kids ethics and environment  and my kids love them, the author uses short stories  🙂

Rainforest Alliance

What a great symbol to look for on products !

Their mission ( according to their site ) ;

“The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior.”

How awesome is that ???

They also have a neat kids section here … which I plan to cover with the kids as part of a homeschool project in the coming weeks.

have a great week!
