Thanks Phone Solar Charger, You've Saved My Life.

Look at that kid up there.
He loves, loves, loves his amusement parks.

What better time of year, than summer to visit the amusement parks?
I'm a genius, no?

This was taken recently at Storybook Land in Egg Harbor Township, NJ.
Almost to the shore.
No, wait, it is the shore.

It's a hike from my house is what it is.

Of course, we set out in the morning and I didn't have my phone charged.
Yes.
Yes.
I know.
Thankfully I was able to charge it with a phone solar charger

This added to my promise to the family that we were going to go greener this summer.
We really don't have much money to take the kids anywhere fancy or far so we are doing Staycation.

To save on money & be green I:
1.  Pack our lunch in reusable containers, including reusable water bottles.

2.  Bring a reusable bag with us to put dirty linens in (i.e. cloth napkins, utensils, the icky containers)

3.  Of course, we gave the van a good once over, so we don't make it work harder than it should, thus cutting out the admissions etc from leaking in the air.

4.  Also I vowed, unless on the highway, we drive with the windows down.  Not going to lie, this has been the toughest one for me.  I looooooooooooooove my air conditioning.  As does the 5yo who tells me he needs fresh air as the air from outside hits him.  Ha! The child should have grown up in the 70's...I remember no air & having to go on even/odd days to get gas due to the gas crisis.  Did I just give my age away?

I digress.

About 15 minutes into our ride, my phone just shut itself off.
Yep.
Kaput.

So I broke out the phone solar charger and by the time I got to our destination my phone was good to go.  We even charged the kids on the way back.   Thank goodness for solar power...helps with being green.

Tell me what are you doing when traveling this summer? How are you going to make it as green as possible?
