Celebrate Earth Day with Magnolia Cupcakes!
Happy Earth Day! I was thinking about how to celebrate Earth Day and realized Bryan and I are already pretty good citizens of our planet. We recycle nearly everything, use "green" light bulbs, reuseable grocery bags, take short showers and turn off the water while we brush our teeth. I mean, that's a start, right? I also planted a tree on Earth Day when I was in the fifth grade, so my karma should be good there. That said, I'm going to celebrate Earth Day this year by walking -- not driving -- about 1/2 mile from my house and getting an Earth Day-themed cupcake from Magnolia Bakery ($3.25/available in vanilla or chocolate with buttercream frosting). I'll be indulging my sweet tooth and helping the planet at the same time, as for every cupcake sold Magnolia Bakery is donating $1 to the “Plant a Billion Trees” organization, an major restoration initiative launched by the Nature Conservancy to restore Brazil’s Atlantic Forest. It doesn't get sweeter than that. (Photo credit: Magnolia Bakery)
