In Get Hats, Latest News, The Multi-Slouch on November 4, 2011 by sioso

November marks the beginning of sometimes crazy consumerism leading up to the Holidays.

Mama puts forth a triple challenge: THIS HOLIDAY (check this video out) and

  1. DO SOMETHING – random and kind for someone else (near or far)
  2. GO GREEN- reuse/ recycle /repurpose EVERYTHING POSSIBLE (incl. wrappings)
  3. BE MINDFUL- Make something or Buy something locally handmade (hint – hint)

WHERE TO FIND Mama…
