Between 2011 and 2012, the average school size was 146 students across all private schools. Yet no matter the school size, many schools are now looking for ways to create more eco- and health-friendly school environments. And one charter school recently proved just how easy it can be to make a difference to protect the earth and students. The River Valley Charter...
Stainless steel is a great finish to have in our kitchens, but it sure doesn't seem stainless. This material sure shows a lot of wear and tear, and it seems that those little fingerprints and food smears show up within a blink of an eye. But unfortunately, like many other industrial options, stainless steel cleaners are usually filled with plenty...
Max & Ola Eco-Friendly Baby Moccasins
Have you heard of Max & Ola’s? If you have a little one, this is a company worth checking out. Their welcome page lured me in: "Just as we must protect and care for our earth, so we must protect and care for our children. Whatever is safe for our environment is often safe for our children as well. At Max & Ola's,...
RACOP RS2 for Cleaning Dust, Pollen and Bacteria
Dust mites gross me out but they are everywhere, especially on mattresses. A single mattress can have up to 10 million dust mites. For someone who is allergic, that spells misery. Now think of the dust mites on your upholstered chairs, fancy throw pillow or drapes. These are all items in your home that you cannot easily clean or...
Tom’s of Maine Rapid Relief Toothpaste
According to the WebMD, 1 in 8 adults have sensitive teeth. If you’re one of these adults, you understand how it feels when you bite into something cold and there’s a twinge of pain. I fall into this category and it’s probably because years ago I went a little too far with over the counter tooth whitening, when it...
BISSELL PowerForce Helix Vacuum Giveaway
Summer is around the corner and this means three things. I will waste my breath saying, take off your shoes, wipe your feet in the garage and wipe the dog’s paws. There will be dirt tracked in and lots of it. Probably black dirt from the garden too. Family will be coming to town because the weather is nice...
8 Ways to Use Vinegar for Laundry
Sunday is my day of laundry. I know it is supposed to be a day of rest but after church, I grocery shop and then begin baking and cooking and packing lunches for the week ahead. In between the cooking, I am doing laundry. You know the drill. Sorting, washing, drying, folding and then putting it away. Only to...
Stonyfield Organic Fruit Snacks
My children have always loved those fruit chewy gummy snacks. You know the ones I’m talking about, right? Well, I think my kids have always loved them because they feel like they’re eating candy. The issue is, the sugar content and ingredients for some of those fruit chewy gummy snacks aren’t so good. In fact, some of them are...
The George Foreman Contact Roaster Review
I’m not one to have 100 appliances stuffed away in a closet. I like to have a kitchen counter that’s neat and tidy and if I have an appliance, I want to use it. I want to use it often, like my crock pot. When the George Foreman™ Contact Roaster arrived for me to review, I was skeptical. I...
Quick and Easy Homemade Frozen Yogurt and Ice Cream
Who doesn’t love ice cream? How about frozen yogurt? I’m a fan of both. This is why I screamed Y-E-S when Stonyfield Farms asked if they could send me a YayLabs! SoftShell Ice Cream Ball™ to make some delicious frozen yogurt and ice cream with! I let this be a surprise for my kids and they were thrilled when it...
DIY Wood Scratch Remover
We've had our bedroom dressers and end tables for almost 11 years. They’ve been beaten up over the years, like most furniture. Scratches, dings and marks from who knows what. I’ve done a good job at covering up most of the damage with “stuff” but I know what’s hiding under my pile of books and it bothers me. This...
Unique Gift Ideas and Eco-Inspiration This Holiday Season
The clock is ticking and if you’re like me and you don’t like to wait until the last minute, your making your shopping list and checking it twice. I like to be organized during the holiday season and make the month of December as stress free as possible. I’ll never forget the Christmas Eve my sister called me frantic...
Petoskey Stone Gift Ideas #Michigan #Petoskey #Gifts
The Petoskey Stone is Michigan’s official state stone and a stone you’ll only find in Michigan. The rock is actually a piece of fossilized coral from over 350 million years ago! You might have heard of this stone because of the notorious photo of President Obama, holding a Petoskey Stone while on the phone. I actually grew up looking...
Luma Comfort AP400W Air Purifier Review
Home renovation can be exciting but in my experience is also means drywall dust. Drywall dust means vacuuming, sweeping and dusting. Repeat daily for the rest of your life! Slight exaggeration but that is how I feel right now. Luckily, I was sent a Luma Comfort AP400W Air Purifier and boy what a difference it has made. We actually...
Minute Maid Juice Bars Review
Yesterday I shared with you how my family has been taste testing a variety of frozen treats this summer. We’re even making our own and having fun experimenting with different recipes. The kids love to see whose taste better! I was recently asked to review the Minute Maid Juice Bars and after doing some research to learn they’re low in...
I have some holiday money that has been burning a hole in my pocket and believe it or not I keep eyeing a Dyson vacuum. You’re probably thinking I’m nuts. I've been drooling over one for some time now. I've read the reviews; I've asked on Twitter and talked to other mom’s about them. Honestly, I felt guilt paying...
Children tend to break things. Just the other day my daughter dropped our Xoom tablet and broke it. We went 2 years without a protective case and it withstood several drops and bangs but I should have known that there would be a final drop and a new tablet on our horizon. There tends to be very little built...
A few weeks ago the kids had spirit day at school and my kids loved getting into the blue and white spirit of homecoming and cheering on the football team. I remember these days fondly and love how my kids are experiencing this excitement. We were lucky to have been sent some new Piggy Paint nail polish colors, which...
I don’t have a baby anymore (Sniff! Sniff!) Though I've expressed my desire to maybe have another one (Shhh, don’t tell my husband!) I'm without a baby on my hip and no longer carrying a diaper bag. When I received the Green Label urban style bag by LASSIG I knew immediately that my sister, Amy and her daughter Cora...
Women love shoes. Women love to wear shoes that are stylish and comfortable. At least this woman does. I am notorious for packing shoes that will look great with my suit, dress or outfit when traveling and end up with blisters, sore legs and my feet up at the end of day. I can’t even tell you how many...
