Comments Off on Girls Gone Green

With Spring Break behind us, say goodbye to Girls Gone Wild and hello to Girls Gone Green !  This new book is an inspirational collection of stories about real girls using their lives, time and talents to make a difference in the environment (and the world!) every day.  Whether they’re organizing beach cleanups, creating non-tox cosmetics or encouraging their community to switch to wind power, these green gals walk with tiny footprints and will inspire you to do the same.  The book’s author, Lynn Hirshfield, has worked on some of our favorite Green Screen picks, like Food, Inc. and An Inconvenient Truth , which inspired her to write the book.  Girls Gone Green is page after page of bright colors, fun stories and lots of great tips and ideas on how to become greener girls and guys ourselves.  Whether you’re a tween, a teen or somewhere beyond, we think you’ll find this book to be as sassy and cool as we did.  Check it out !

Comments Off on The End of the Line

According to the scientific journal of Nature, 90% of the world’s biggest fish are gone.  But where did they go?  This is the question director Rupert Murray sets out to explore in The End of the Line and the answer is quite simple – we ate them.  Narrated by actor and activist Ted Danson and making it’s premiere at Sundance, The End of the Line takes a compelling yet sobering look at humankind’s excess consumption of fish and the effects it’s having on the planet.   Murray weaves fantastic interviews from leading experts with stunning photography of our underwater world.

Comments Off on Tutorial: Stenciled Bean Bags

I like to make educational toys for my girls– matching games from their artwork , file folder games, extension activities for the books they read, anything that will allow them to incorporate what I want them to learn into the pleasures of their lives. These particular bean bags were inspired by my three-year-old, who hasn’t yet memorized her numbers. Sure, she can count on her fingers and plays a mean game of Uncle Wiggily, but sit down long enough to figure out the difference between a 5 and a 9?
