Remember that event we shared with you last month with Target’s Made to Matter family? Several brands like Annie’s, EcoScraps and Mrs. Meyers all came together to showcase simple ways families can live a more green lifestyle. These brands have taught us so much over the last few years here at Small Fry and we love there down to Earth and educational approach. We had to share some photos from the event so you can see what we mean!
First of all, thank you to all who came and said hello to Emily and her family! We love meeting readers and were so thrilled to be at this event, those of you who went know just how great it was. Kid Yoga (we have an awesome post on how to teach your kids yoga at home right here!) They had a whole animal rescue section where you could play, walk, and get familiar with local animals for adoption. One of the hosts, EcoScraps was new-to-us and particularly inspiring. Two college aged kids at an all-you-can-eat-buffet noticed how much food was being wasted and decided to do something about it. They collect unused and wasted food from restaurants and stores and recycle it into dirt! This sustainable soil is one simple switch we can make to a more eco friendly lifestyle, and of course, sold at Target! The boys loved painting their pots and planting their own seeds, obviously not the Frame brothers but you get the idea. 😉More gardening tips, which we loved. Sometimes we forget that no matter how big (or nonexistent) our yard is we can still cultivate and grow our own food in a small way!
They had about 1,000 other things to do with face painting, bounce houses, stations across the giant yard filled with informative and fun things to try out, and of course food trucks galore! For us by far the favorite was the giant bubble station:
It was nothing short of magic to watch and give a whirl. We love when brands pull together to create such a great time for the community and had to share the highlights! The start of a more eco-friendly lifestyle is just that – a start. Pick one new thing to try, switch out a product or two, sign up for a recycling bin. No effort is wasted in creating a more promising future for our families!
