What on Earth?!

Posted on 04.19.13 – Lifestyles, Style

Celebrate Earth Day in style on Monday, April 22 by showing your commitment to our planet with a work-day lunch of eco-friendly products that are good for the planet—and for you.

Pack your lunch in a soft, but strong bamboo lunch bag, made from quickly regenerating bamboo fibers. And don’t forget to bring your drink in a reusable bottle like the Klean Kanteen, which will help reduce the estimated 50 billion plastic bottles Americans purchase every year. Tackle your mid-morning snack attack with Way Better multi-grain tortilla chips made with golden flax, quinoa, brown rice and broccoli, chia and radish seeds. Then chase down all that goodness with a refreshing glass of caloriefree ginger and lemon peel herbal water. When it’s time to fight off that mid-afternoon sinking spell, drink some dandelions. That’s right, dandelions. Instead of cursing the yellow demons, enjoy Dandy Blend, a herbal beverage made from dandelion root extracts, which when mixed with a little hot water makes anything from “a pleasant, nutty roasted tea to a rich, strong espresso.”

After all, what would April be without dandelions?
