  3. Earth Day is special to me because I have 4 kiddos I love sharing nature with! We do our part in many ways, but one is our small cloth diapering business, ZooNique Baby. :)

  4. Earth Day is, in part, special to me because it's my hubby's birthday. But, it's become more special now that we have a daughter to share our love for nature and the earth with. We look forward to showing her what the world means to us and hopefully watch her grow into her own little tree hugging self!

  7. This is a fantastic giveaway. I found you from Betz.
    Earth Day is a day to be reminded what we hope to live...a greener lifestyle filled with natural materials in our home, real food in our bellies, and responsible and sustainable consumption. It is a wonderful day to celebrate the progress of everyone, and be inspired by others. This year we are getting the plastics out of our life. So far this has been a difficult task...but we are working on it! happy Earth day.
    BTW, I have been looking for "car" fabrics for my son's quilt (which is still in my head...) yours are perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am loving this fabric! I am also a follower now!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I like Earth Day because it reminds people that we can make a difference with the choices we make. I am trying to stop buying cheap clothing that has to be thrown away after a season. I am trying to buy from responsible manufacturers and I'm also making my own clothes so they will last for years!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love Earth Day because I love all things "green". With one little girl and twins on the way, I want to make the world a better place for them!

  11. I'm using less plastic and more glass.

  12. I like Earth Day because it reminds me how important nature is to my kids who love the outdoors and cute woodland animals (like the squirrels in Circa50 who will be in a woodland animal quilt as soon as the fabric is out)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've enjoyed Earth Day products as of late...I love that there are options to buy "green" toys for my boys, and "green" fabrics and cleaners to use in my home that won't harm us and still keep our planet a little cleaner.

    I would be so excited to win! This fabric line would make a perfect quilt for my July baby! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks! Earth Day has become more special to me as I grow older and realize what harm we do as we pass thru. I recycle more, use less and use organic whenever I can!

    I'm going to follow your blog as well!

    ReplyDelete
  25. First time that I did all three...Just tweeted, that's how bad I want to win.

  31. Earth Day is special to me because it makes me aware of how fragile our Earth is, and how important it is to protect our natural resources so they will be there for our children's children. I am recycling, gardening and doing some composting.

  32. Love this. I'm a follower and liked you on facebook. Nobody really follows my tweets so it really doesn't count as much.

    And this year for Earth Day I'm building raised beds to have a better chance and growing something edible in my vege garden. (The last couple of years have been less than awesome. But I am determined this year. And I'm doing sheet composting, which means no bagged soil.)

  34. I will tweet this! I will add you on face book!
    Earth day is very important everyday. I have children and 1 grandchild. Our planet is our home we need to care for her! I have a garden and am starting a compost pile this year!
    I would use your fabric to make a bag to carry groceries/purchases in. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I feel Earth day is a day to realize that our actions, (even small ones), make a difference to the world around us. From picking up our trash, to using reusable grocery bags, to utilizing natural pest controls instead of insecticides. Every little bit that we do can, and will make a difference.

    ReplyDelete
  38. And I just "liked you" on facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I liked you on Facebook.
    And Earth Day is special for me because it is my sons birthday. We just planted a few new trees in the backyard, hopefully to cut down on the air conditioner use in the summer time. they will also make nice hammock holders when they get bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Earth Day is extra special this year because my daughter is now 3-years-old, and she is really starting to understand the concept of recycling, conserving, and protecting nature. I plan on going on a nature walk with her tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Earth Day is important to me because it helps raise awareness in all of us to be more mindful of the impact of our actions and everyday activities.

  45. Earth Day is special to me because it brings more awareness to how lucky we are. We are big recyclers, actually today was our pickup day, and our compost bin is always in use and trying to teach my daughter what goes where!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Earth Day has really made me think about my own habits and what I can do to make a difference.

    Those fabrics are gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm making an effort to buy more green products-cleaning, paper products, etc.
    Thanks for the chance to enter your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Earth Day is special to me because I love plants, gardening, and wilderness. I'm continuing with my efforts to not buy anything new unless I absolutely cannot make do with something I already have, or can buy second hand, and by trying to buy mostly in season foods, grown as locally as is reasonable. This requires more patience and thinking, but is a great penny saver too. I think its about balance - you don't have to give up your lifestyle, you just have to change how you achieve it.

  61. earth day ... reminds people of all the reasons why being kind to our earth is important - hopefully a mini celebration of how good the earth is to us. LOVE the fabrics (current and upcoming) = I WILL be a follower (in just one second)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm a bit of a tree hugger so my hope is with every passing earth day more and more people become more concerned about our planet.
    We're going garbage collecting!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow, congratulations on such a beautiful new release! My three year olds have started picking up trash that blows onto our land, especially plastic bags and wrappings that might entrap birds. They are so earnest about protecting the small creatures--it warms my heart!

    ReplyDelete
  64. It's cheesy, but every day is earth day for me. I filled up my car's gas tank in January ... and it's still half full. I bike, buy all used clothes, grow some of my own food, etc. I just wish the mainstream world would care more about the state of our fragile marble -- and not just on earth day. Sometimes it's hard to keep up the enthusiasm, though seeing more and more fabric companies going to organic cotton is certainly motivating for this quilter.

  70. Earth day is special to me because it like a fun party day to celebrate nature. It kind of renews my vow to be good to the earth during the year. I love feeling like I'm part of a fun conspiracy to clean up and love the planet!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Happy Earth Day! I recently switched to a more "eco friendly" feminine product so I don't throw anything away every month!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Earth Day to me is about the little things. Its remembering to conserve water, recycle more and reuse items. I love discovering ways to reuse things. Your fabrics are fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love that Earth Day reminds us all to come together to remind one another of what is important: biodiversity, taking care of our earth, consuming less and consuming wisely, etc. For Earth Day this year, I plan to make some repurposed/upcycled projects to give to friends and family and plant green, growing things in my garden.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I follow your blog! I love your fabric designs, and am glad your giveaway brought me to you!

    ReplyDelete
  75. What's we do on earth day is get out in our yard and plant flowers, veggies, everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint! Love your fabrics!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Today, Earth Day, has been car free for me and I'm working toward more care free days this summer. Oh, and I do follow you on twitter.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Down under in Australia today it is an unseasonably warm 27 degrees celcius, so I am walking to the beach with my 3 year old daughter for a splash and some shell foraging. What better way to celebrate Earth Day! The fabrics are beautiful and have just become a follower via RSS feeds. Thankyou, Pam x

    ReplyDelete
  78. Earth Day this year is about giving away a lot of our extra things via Freecycle. We are moving next week, and the more we reduce, the less waste we make in the move. Keeping our still good mattress, diaper pail etc out of the landfill just helps everyone out.
    PS- I posted links to your upcoming fabric line on a couple FB submarine wives groups. I love submarine fabric for my future submariner toddler!
    I will become a FB fan of you too.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Happy Earth Day. We have been planting flowers and will be planting 2 new trees.

  80. I will be recycling everything I can get my hands on and creating items made with recycled goods.

    ReplyDelete
  81. and I "like" you on face book

    ReplyDelete
  82. For Earth Day, I'm staying home and sewing (what a sacrifice, right?) But seriously, I'm very careful to limit my driving to what's absolutely necessary and mapping out my errands so I can knock out a bunch of "to do's" at once. Earth Day should be celebrated everyday, but it is a good reminder to take care of our mother earth.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I plan on celebrating Earth Day and every day by simplifying and living with less.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I have just been won over to paying a bit more for organic cotton after seeing your designs! Besides that, I bring my shopping bags to the grocery store :)
    Seriously, I am almost crying over how cute of a quilt I could make with your stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Tweet tweet - http://twitter.com/pugkayaker

  86. I'll be going barefoot for the day, recycle more than ever, turn the lights off, unplug as many things as possible, and spend the day outdoors- enjoying the simple things. (: Earth Day brings everybody together to help the Earth- it's very meaningful and too special to not contribute to. (: I'm a follower and I liked you on facebook. (:

    ReplyDelete
  87. Wonderful giveaway, can't wait to see this new line!! Earth day and everyday, we recylce everything we can, and all food scraps go to Ruby our pet pig!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Earth day is special because so many folks are focused on being green. I try to make a difference in as many small ways as I can every day.

    Thanks for the great contest, these fabrics are so cute!

    I also became a follower of Birch Fabrics and Tweeted about this.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Earth Day is special this year because the kids have gotten all excited about it at school!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Every Day should be Earth Day! It's special to me because it reminds everyone that we all need to work togeher to be kinder to the earth. I planted a tree and I will continue making and selling green accessories in my Etsy Shop. :)

    This blog hop is awesome! :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. Earth day is to remind us to live responsibly. We should never take clean air, water, or any other natural resource for granted.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I hate waste! So today is a good reminder of that! I try and find creative uses for things...old clothes into quilts, etc. :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. while earth day is a day where i hope to bring awareness to being good to the earth, i do try to help out on an everyday basis. i am planning some earth-friendly crafts and activities with the kids, it's important for them to understand!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I will probably spend the day outside working on my garden!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Earth Day is important for me as it means lots of people coming together and having fun while working to help the community and the environment.

    I'm doing my part by working on using fewer resources at home - turning off everything I can, using less heat, using less water, re-using more items, making things myself instead of buying, etc. Love the "Freeze Yer Buns Off" challenge!

    Oh, and I did all 3 of the extra items - follow, like, and tweet!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I did a recylcing project with my son to celebrate Earth Day! Love these fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  97. As simple as it is, Earth Day is special for me because it is a day that the global conscience is all about our home and preserving it. I want to make a difference this year by not drinking bottled water anymore. I am a follower and I'll get my mother hooked too; she loves quilting. About to like it all on FB.

    ReplyDelete
  98. well I only just found you thanks to Ink & Spindle and now have ANOTHER site to add to my ever-growing fabric obsession. Oy.

    Am loving all of it, the new ranges especially!

    I'm now a follower and a 'liker' on Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm using this Earth Day as a reminder to take stock of my daily habits--using reusable shopping bags, taking a cup to work instead of using styrofoam. Little things that hopefully add up!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Thanks for the chance to win your fabulous, eco-friendly fabric...which I LOVE!!! The prints are just so amazing!
    Earth day should be everyday! I try and make a difference in any way that I can every day, but today I actually got to take my daughter's entire kindergarten class on a nature walk for fun AND to pick up the garbage that people had left behind. It was a great opportunity to talk to the children about why it is important to keep our earth clean and our bodies healthy. Kids are like sponges and the earlier they learn, the more they are aware. It was a great day!

  104. I have a huge stack of my hubbys old golf shirts that I am going to cut up as PJ pants/shorts for my 4&8 year olds. Thanks for the giveaway!

  105. I teach high school German and will definitely raise awareness for all of my students. We are having an Earth Day poster contest. The unit we are focusing on right now is the environment. I love teaching a topic that I am pesonally passionate about! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  106. On the very first Earth Day, took my babies and the dog to the park to join a community New Game, rolling a huge earth ball maybe 6 feet diameter around and throwing earth frisbies and singing Simon and Garfunkle. Since then, always plant a new tree(s). This year called the tree man, Peter, to groom and strengthen a 100 foot ash tree we got from the Arbor Foundation about 25 years ago as a take-home from kindergarten twig on Earth Day. My children and their cousins think it's some sort of religious holiday. (Which, of course, it is.)

    ReplyDelete
  107. I am so excited to see more companies with organic fabric. What a great step forward. I'm remembering my reusable bags, composting and spending more time outside this week with my children by taking part in TV turnoff week.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I love that Earth Day truly has covered the gambit now. I write a wedding blog and am making a conscious effort to make my wedding eco-friendly and trying to reduce our carbon footprint.

    P.S. My wedding is where I would use these fabrics. I love making fabric flowers!

  112. Earth day and every day - try to grow my own food - clean my chicken coop, add it to the garden, improve the coop, start some plants, learn more about growing, try to buy things without too much packaging, try not to buy things, recycle, recycle, reuse and recycle. Sadly I haven't found a way to get away from driving a car....

    ReplyDelete
  117. I love the fact that I will be contributing to make a better future for my children and grandchildren on earth. It gives me time to spend gardening our organic plants together too.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Earth Day every day! always have a cloth baggie in my purse and plenty of tote bags in the car. And I love running recycle clubs with kids - trying to get the next generation involved and hoping they'll have some influence on their parents!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Being a teacher, the best part of Earth Day is teaching the next generation about what we can do for the earth.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Love these fabrics! I'm not religious, so I love earth day because it a holiday I can believe in - celebrating our earth! I've been trying to come up with some sort of Earth Day tradition to do with my son.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I love Earth Day for 2 reasons, the first being the obvious, but the second, for the creativity that it evokes from so many people who recreate beautiful things from what otherwise would be tossed away.
    I am so happy to have found your fabric...I have been spending night after night trying to find organic and hand printed fabric that would be great for all of my current projects (and some more that I am going to think up after I finish entering all these giveaways!) I am a follower and a facebook fan :)

    ReplyDelete
  125. Thanks for the chance to win your fantastic fabric! Tomorrow I plan to take care of the Earth by doing the little things I am trying to make routine; unplugging things that aren't in use (TV, computer, mixer), putting on a sweater instead of turning up the heat, turning off lights, not running extra water. If I can make these things routine, then I can really make a difference.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I already liked you, but now I do on facebook.

  128. What an amazing giveaway! Fantastic prints!

    ReplyDelete
  135. Earth Day is a chance for us to even out some of that bad karma and do something nice for the earth for a change. It's a reminder to us that it *does* matter when we go to the trouble to recycle that bottle instead of putting it in the trash because it's easier. This Earth Day I think I'll try to talk my boss into doing more recycling at work! Thanks for the giveaway -- the fabric is so adorable.!

  137. Earth Day is always a special day for me, because I work with children birth to five years. We plant seeds, walk barefoot outside, feel the sun and breeze on our skin, and smell the dirt. We pick up special rocks, admire and smell daffodils blooming, feel the rain on our faces and stomp in mud puddles if that's the weather. We compost our food scraps and unbleached paper towels for our garden. We recycle our yogurt cups. We listen to the birds call and find tiny insects in the grass. I know how lucky I am to see the Earth through the fresh eyes of children every day.

  139. I like Earth Day because it gives me a chance to advertise more openly about being green. My co-workers will recycle & it's an excellent marketing opportunity.

  140. Oh wow, am totally in love with your new lines!! The wales are especially adorable! Panting at the thought of winning the fat quarters of your awesome fabric! LOL
    Earth day is special to us this year, as my husband is in a line of work where the banks want him to throw everything in the dump. He has worked hard, and hundreds of extra hours to make this process more earth friendly, finding ways to recycle, or give these items to those in need instead of heaping them in land fills. Insteaed of letting the government run banks take a back seat approach, I admire him for going the extra mile and educating his clients in other ways of doing "business as usual"!

  143. Earth Day reminds me that even the little things (like remembering to turn the lights off when i'm not using them) are important! Thanks for the great giveaway! I'm super excited for the circa 50 collection to arrive! I'd be even more excited if I won them in a giveaway!

  145. I try to practice being nice to the Earth every time I go to the store. I consistently use my reusable bags instead of plastic. I am very proud of my small contribution. I also try to spread this idea among my friends. My daughter is doing this, too!

    I really do think Earth Day is everyday. My husband and I both work in the enviro world -- and met doing so. We love this planet.

    I'm celebrating this year by getting away from my screen and breathing fresh air.
