Why should you plan a visit? Well the California Academy of Sciences is the greenest museum in the world with a four-story rainforest (below), coral reef exhibits (yes it has a aquarium), a 2.5 acre living roof of native San Francisco plants (poppies, lupine and more!).

Did I mention there is a towering T-Rex skeleton (rawwrr!), a colony of African penguins, a fully-immersive digital screen by which to fly to the farthest reaches of the Universe? These are just a few of the highlights of what you can see when you visit the new Academy!

AND did you know they have a super cool skulls exhibit going on right now? They have a visitor wall that has over 400 sea lion skulls plus many more land and marine animal skulls for you to see and some you can touch! See some cool pictures from the Cal Academy website on this exhibit below:

What are PeopleTowels?

If you would like a more in depth analysis of the product, click PeopleTowels Review to read my review from a previous blog post. Here is a quick summary below:

PeopleTowels are the newest concept in sustainability, inspired by the Japanese who have been using reusable, personal hand towels for decades. Reusable PeopleTowels are a small eco-friendly lifestyle change that everyone can do to reduce their carbon footprint.. –PeopleTowels website

Perks about the product:

  • Light-weight fabric (100% organic fair trade cotton) is absorbent and dries quickly.
  • Designs are printed with eco-friendly dyes.
  • Hangtags allow you to clip or loop your PeopleTowels to your backpack, purse, belt loop, etc…
  • Machine washable.
  • Come in a variety of designs, something for everyone!

Versatility of PeopleTowels:

  1. Pack PeopleTowels with your lunch: Whether you are a student, an employee or have kids in school, packing one with lunch is a great idea! Forget the napkins and BYO PeopleTowels instead to instantly make your lunch eco-friendly chic! 🙂
  2. Attach PeopleTowels to your belt loop or wrap one around your wrist: You’ll never get caught in the restroom without one to dry your hands after washing up! And wrapping it to your wrist works great as an alternative to a sweatband for rock climbing, running, gym…you name it!
  3. Take PeopleTowels with you to the store: Clip one to your reusable grocery bag and show your pride in your sustainble lifestyle … in style!
  4. Get a PeopleTowels for your dog: This one deserves a post all on its own, from muddy feet to slobbery mouth, having one for your best four legged friend (or three legged in my case) is a must!
