Happy Earth Day! Earth Day is a good time to reflect on the choices we make in our everyday lives, and to commit to doing more in the future. Here at MudHollow, we strive to keep our products, packaging, and shipping as environmentally friendly as possible, and are always looking for ways that we can take it a step further.
Earthday.org is a wonderful resource to help take the next step to getting involved in the care of our planet. There is an interesting footprint calculator, they list several ways to get involved in various campaigns, and you can upload your photo to be part of “The Face of Climate Change” photo mosaic.
In celebration of this important day, we are going to be giving away a Little Felt Animal!

I really enjoyed reading all your comments about the activities you do to protect the Earth!
Congratulations to our winner: Beccijo!
How Lovely! We eat locally and organic, walk to school, shop second hand, conserve water and energy among many other things!
Seems like you have it pretty well figured out – so wonderful to hear people really being conscientious in their daily choices!
gorgeous, my 4 year olds ‘thing’ at the moment is eating only food that comes without rubbish….. so I’m trying to keep up with cooking for her with minimal packaging, opting for paper over plaastic wrppers. We’re also upping our home grown food. 🙂
I love that your little one is already making those choices! It takes some adjusting to, but so worth it for both the planet’s health, and our own! Thanks for sharing!
I’d love to win a little critter. I am recycling more and more to help the earth . Also I don’t drive much to help save the world of all that nasty pollution. I pick up trash inm neighboorhood and use reuseable bags too. Thank you for the very cute giveaway.
Sounds like you are doing a lot to help the environment – that is awesome! Thanks for posting!
Thank you, I am trying everyday.

I am leaving the lights OFF as long as I can today 🙂
That sounds like a great way to spend the day, and great for saving energy 😉
I have been composting my food scraps, lugging all my recyclables to the recycling center with the kiddos to show them how much we can reduce our trash, and looking at electric cars for our next vehicle to reduce our footprints! 🙂 Would love to win a little critter…they are sooooo adorable and were a treasure to the whole family this past Christmas! Thank you!
Me, Me, pick me even though I have bought most of them!!
Congratulations! You are the winner of our giveaway!
I need animals!!! 🙂
Your new little pony Winslow was in my mind as I created the new Little Felt Horse 😉
I’m trying to reduce the amount of packaging I bring into the house. It’s just crazy how much trash we make!!!! I’m looking at produce bags and plan on making beeswax cloth, to use instead of plastic! Would love to win one of your lovely animals!!!!!
I love the idea of beeswax cloth – do you have a tutorial or guide you will be following?
I am trying to use reusable bags more often and I reuse all my envelpoes and boxes for shipping;)
These little critters are so adorable!! We do all kinds of things to help the earth, organic garden, compost, recycle and use reusable totebags while shopping. thanks for the chance!
These felted animals are adorable. This year, to protect the planet I will continue to live making conscious choices as I have over the last 18 years. Eating organic food, reusing as many things as possible, for example as well as using cloth diapers for my baby once he is born in the next couple of weeks.
A new baby – how exciting!
Great! My plans are to learn beekeeping. In fact, I already started. ..
It’s wonderful that you will be taking this step! I love bees (and honey)!
So cute..my daughters would love them. We do our share to help the earth..we compost, grow food, recycle, use cloth grocery bags, cloth diapers..among other things! Definitely try to do our part. <3
So cute, we’d love to win!
Tweeted as well!
I shared on Facebook. These animals are sooo cute and beautiful.. .
Would love to win! Thanks for the chance 🙂 We recycle, compost, grow our own food, raise our own chickens, have our own honey bees, re-landscape our yard with only useful or edible plants, walk places, buy used clothing, books, household items and furniture…and the list goes on 🙂
Wow, that is quite an impressive list! Someday I hope to have the ability to raise chickens and bees, and have a bit more space for gardening.

What charming felted animals looking after their organic garden – delightful. We are continuing to grow our own veggies (without chemicals) and are seeing some lovely results. Have p/v panels & solar hot water system. Also recycling and reusing items.
Hopefully not too late~ these are darling!! My earth protection plan for the next few days is to install a rain barrel under the newly constructed horse shelter for drinking water (for the horse) and water for the garden :o)
Adorable! My kids are obsessed with little animals.
My favorite eco-friendly thing that we do is that we buy most of our food in bulk with our neighborhood buying club. We cut down on packaging, are able to afford to buy mostly organic due to group discounts/wholesale pricing, get to know our community, support local farmers and businesses and keep our money within our city!
neighborhood buying clubs (and CSA’s) are wonderful! I really hope this movement grows quickly so that there are even more options for people!
SO we are trying to grow some of our food in the backyard. We have 2 sq ft gardens this year and an in ground bed. We’re composting & hopefully will get a couple of rain barrels. Mostly I just want to impart a love of our earth to my boys and teach them local is good, as local as your own backyard even. Shared on FB.
Super cute! Our kids would love this! 🙂
