This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to winner Lisa W.! Last holiday season Oprah gave Shaklee natural cleaning products her nod of approval in her “Favorite Things” show, and now, after trying the Shaklee Basic H2 cleaner myself, they are getting the Crunchy Domestic Goddess nod of approval as well. The Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate is some powerful stuff with a lot of uses – from cleaning windows, tile and bathtubs, to wood floors, stainless steel and ovens and the list goes on. The 16 oz. bottle of concentrate comes with three spray bottles labeled for “all-purpose cleaning,” “windows and mirrors,” and “degreasing.”Read More →

All of Lily’s Garden Herbals natural household products are homemade, non-toxic, contain NO chemical ingredients or synthetic preservatives, are biodegradable and never tested on animals. Her ad is located in my left sidebar. Welcome, Lily’s Garden Herbals!

There’s a new review site for the eco-conscious among us called Green Mom Finds. The site was created by Cristina and Izzy, and has four other moms (including myself) who contribute reviews on all of the great green things we’ve come across on our mothering journeys. I’m honored and excited to be apart of this site and wonderful group of women. With all of the uncertainty about whether this or that product is safe, it’s nice to know there’s a place you can go to and find green items, tips and resources that other moms have tested and recommend. Check it out. I think you’llRead More →

Cross-posted at BlogHer: BlogHers Act. It’s just over a month now until the release of The Business of Being Born to DVD a la Netflix* on Feb. 12, and I, for one, am counting the days. There are 36.

A few weeks ago I posted my holiday toy gift guide for kids, but now is the time to start thinking about yourself and all of the women (friends, aunts, grandmothers, mothers, sisters) on your list, because let’s face it, we women deserve some great gifts too! :) In keeping with the crunchy spirit of reducing, reusing and recycling, I’m happy to say that most of the items in my girly gift guide are green (good for the environment). These gift ideas aren’t just for Christmas and Chanukah, they also makeRead More →
