It's Not Easy Being Green...

It's not easy being green; but we sure try. For our Earth Day post we are going to talk about what we do for our part of saving the Earth. We aren't as green as our buddy Stubby, but we always get great ideas from him, so if you ever want to know how to do more check out his blog!

Our mom uses her reusable bags when shopping. She is becoming a freak about them, she has a bunch and she has been giving them as gifts to people too. Every bag counts guys' so always try and use reusable bags to help our planet.

Today she bought a small size one at Whole Foods designed by Sheryl Crow, for only .79 cents. And she got a free regular size bag for shopping there during Earth Day!

Her favorite bag she bought when she went to watch her Oakland A's play baseball.

Mom's gift to our house for Earth Day was a Brita Pitcher, she hadn't been buying small water bottles for a very long time because she has a Sigg but she had been buying gallon size water. She decided it was time to stop that, so we have a Brita now and we LOVE it. We are now getting our water bowel filled with filtered water too! (mom read somewhere that filtered water might help with Oakley's tear stains, we don't know if it's true but we're hoping).
Mom will use any excuse to spend money. BOL.

Mom picked up this magazine while out today. The cuties on the front grabbed her attention, but it looks like it will have some articles on natural and GREEN stuff for us doggies so if she reads something interesting she will definitely share.

Happy Earth Day!

Lots Of Licks,

Oakley and Swisher


  1. Hi Oakley & Swisher! You guys make me so proud. I'm lucky to call you my friends!

    Your mom is really getting the hang of this green stuff. My mom is a freak about the bags too. She has been known to walk out of a store carrying stuff in her arms if she forgot a bag.

    Tell your mom not to forget to recycle the Brita filters. It took a long time to get Brita to take them back because we cannot have them in landfills. Have her email me if she needs info.

    Thanks for the shout out on my blog. You guys rock!

    Happy Earth Day!

    Stubby xoxo

  2. I've got that very same small Whole Foods bag! I walked up to the store by me last year just to check them out (I'd been into Whole Foods before, but not this one) and ended up buying a few things, so I, too, picked up the bag for 79 cents! Way to go on getting greet guys!!
