While I am far from being a 100% environmentally-friendly mom, I do try to do what I can to do my part. Whether it's buying non-toxic cleaning materials to recycling - every little bit helps. So, I'm always on the lookout for products that help me become a more responsible consumer.
I was browsing Target one day (which happens a lot), I came across this cute notebook ($3). I fell in love with the colors (think shabby chic garden). What's special about this notebook is what it's made from or rather what it's not made from. The notebook, from Mara-Mi is made from 100% stone. You can feel the difference immediately - the paper has a super soft texture and doesn't tear easily. In fact, it tears similar to a disposable vinyl tablecloth - it's super durable. I love the way the pen writes on it, too. And the cute design is very cherry and bright, which helps when you're writing your "to-do" lists...if only it would make completing the list easier.
