Tips To Limit Or Reduce Exposure To Plastic

When it comes to convenience, accessibility, and affordability, few materials beat plastic. It’s everywhere and has such a wide range of uses, especially in the kitchen. But plastic isn’t without its negative side. There are loads of chemicals that go into the making of plastic, and those chemicals don’t always stay where they are supposed to. Some leach out, and they may leach into our bodies, affecting brain, behavior, and glands in both children and adults. So if there’s no escaping plastic and no stopping the leaching of harmful materials,…

Grab A Free Starter Plant And Winter Park Honey Samples At Green Umbrella

I like to “think” I have a green thumb, but truth be told, I have not been able to grow tomatoes in Florida. Despite many unsuccessful attempts, I still find myself planting seedlings each year with similar disappointing results… too much sun exposure. I have even tried container gardening with hopes of relocating my plants during the day to avoid over exposure, but that still has not proven to be successful. Recently, I learned about a sustainable living showroom in Winter Park called Green Umbrella. They offer a free starter…

Simple Green OXY DOG and BIO DOG Pet Stain & Odor Remover Review & Giveaway

I have a VERY stinky golden retriever! I swear, Bailey goes outside and rolls in yard delights just to make me mad. I’m not sure if she does this because she enjoys having a bath or because she loves being gross, but it drives me nuts. My son calls her “Mudbud” the golden retriever puppy from the Buddies movies that is always in trouble for rolling in the mud. Thankfully, Bailey has a doggie door so she can come and go whenever! Best part of all…her area does not co-mingle with…

Teach Kids About Sustainability and Go Green With The Gigglin’ Garden Gang #GoGreenNGiggle #CBias

Some of my best childhood memories involve playing in dirt while my parents planted their garden. We didn’t buy many fruits or vegetables at the grocery store, instead we grew them! I can remember sneaking into my mom’s strawberry patch and stuffing my face with berries until I had a tummy ache. My parents definitely passed along their love for growing which is a valuable lesson my husband and I are also sharing with our son. We have been organic container gardening for several years and our little guy loves planting,…

Snackaby Reusable, Washable, Green Snack & Sandwich Bags Review & Special Offer

Nothing pains me more than using disposable baggies when packing snacks and lunches! Too many times they are just tossed into the trash after one use.

My son and I are…
