Noth­ing will moti­vate you more than to start liv­ing a greener life quite like par­ent­hood. Sud­denly the planet is no longer yours, it belongs to the lit­tle peo­ple, the ones who need to swim and climb trees and run through the grass just like you did.

If it’s not good enough for you or your baby, then it’s not good enough for the envi­ron­ment either. Eco­Mom, an Eco-Friendly Baby Prod­ucts com­pany, was founded to address the con­nec­tion between the health of our envi­ron­ment and the health of our chil­dren. Eco­Mom is com­mit­ted to mak­ing eco-conscious liv­ing easy, afford­able, and rewarding.

Eco­Mom has an exten­sive selec­tion of eco-conscious prod­ucts and there is cer­tainly some­thing for every­one, even if you just want to try some­thing new, like a counter top com­post pail for your kitchen. Eco­Mom offers a vari­ety of eco-friendly baby prod­ucts includ­ing organic baby and tod­dler food, organic cot­ton cloth­ing, wood toys, green clean­ing prod­ucts, all nat­ural bath and body prod­ucts for mom and baby, and so much more!!

Founded in August of 2008, Eco­Mom was cre­ated by moms, pro­fes­sion­als, and those who fall into both cat­e­gories. The goal was to cre­ate a resource where moms could shop for healthy, eco-friendly prod­ucts that would pro­mote well­be­ing in their chil­dren. Based out of Los Ange­les, Cal­i­for­nia, Eco­Mom was founded by Bal­aji Gopinath and Jody Sher­man. Today, the Eco­Mom team has expanded to include many oth­ers along with a grow­ing com­mu­nity and large data­base of green prod­ucts for the family.

Par­ents that pre­fer to pur­chase envi­ron­men­tally friendly, health con­scious prod­ucts can appre­ci­ate Eco­Mom. The site is a large col­lec­tion of items that fall into these cat­e­gories, includ­ing edi­ble and non-edible mer­chan­dise. Many other online retail­ers offer some of the same prod­ucts; how­ever Eco­Mom brings them all together into one con­ve­nient shop­ping location.

Eco­Mom sent me a fab­u­lous LOVE Reusable Bags Chill Set in Cos­mic Stripes pat­tern and I totally love it!! I was wish­ing I had this won­der­ful insu­lated set with me while in Jamaica a few weeks ago, it sure would have come in handy!! They have a match­ing set of 3 reusable shop­ping totes that tuck neatly into a 4th insu­lated cooler bag. The LOVE Reusable Bags Chill Set is great because you not only have your reusable totes but also a cooler for meats, and frozen foods plus hot foods too, while you get all your errands run with­out spoilage of food.  The totes are machine wash­able and sturdy and hold up to 60lbs.  These totes stand alone for easy load­ing and unload­ing and are equipped with 3 mesh pock­ets for stor­age and a shoul­der strap for comfort!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Sappho Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

 

JoAnn Fowler is the bril­liant make-up artist and busi­ness woman behind Sap­pho Cos­met­ics and the faces of many seem­ingly flaw­less celebs includ­ing the cast of Twi­light and the L-Word!

While work­ing in film and TV she decided to cre­ate a cos­met­ics line free of syn­thetic chem­i­cals that would feel good and that wouldn’t com­pro­mise on colours. Its almost impos­si­ble to find toxic-free make-up, even in com­mon min­eral makeup that you assume is all-natural.

Jo wants you to know what you’re putting on your body, and Sap­pho Cos­met­ics is the safe nat­ural alter­na­tive to makeup today!

 

“A new, green, eco con­scious, organic based makeup line. Free of syn­thetic chem­i­cals, Sap­pho Cos­met­ics are sexy and look and feel great on your skin. We have dili­gently searched for for­mu­la­tions made with ingre­di­ents that sur­pass the EU stan­dards for safer cosmetics.

Each prod­uct has been cho­sen for it’s purity, ease of appli­ca­tion, qual­ity and beauty. We have found and devel­oped prod­ucts that we believe are truly won­der­ful…. pack­aged for util­ity and recy­cla­bil­ity and made in North Amer­ica. Some have organic con­tent, some are vegan — all are cru­elty, paraben and phtha­late free.

In all cases, Sap­pho Cos­met­ics promises full dis­clo­sure of ingredients.”

Sap­pho Cos­met­ics the col­lec­tion is used on the set of The L Word. The prod­ucts include a chemical-free foun­da­tion, as well as a range of eye­shad­ows, eye lin­ers, lip­sticks, glosses, blushes, and pow­ders in vibrant colours!

 

Sap­pho Cos­met­ics specif­i­cally does not use Parabens and Pftha­lates. Parabens are used to pre­serve cos­met­ics, and pftha­lates are used to soften and make cos­met­ics silky. Both have been linked to var­i­ous forms of can­cer. Sap­pho Cos­met­ics uses nat­ural mate­ri­als for their cos­met­ics and refuses to test their prod­ucts on animals.

Accord­ing to their web­site “Sap­pho Cos­met­ics is all about mak­ing up fear­lessly. It’s about learn­ing how to make up and being as dar­ing as you please but even more impor­tantly it’s about putting prod­ucts on our faces and bod­ies that will not harm us.”

I had the extreme plea­sure of being able to review these prod­ucts, and was beyond impressed with them! I will be order­ing more in the near future, and totally rec­om­mend Sap­pho Cos­met­ics to everyone!!

 

The very kind and gen­er­ous JoAnn from Sap­pho Cos­met­ics has gen­er­ously offered to give one very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win the fol­low­ing from her web­site: A “Dare to MakeUp Fear­lessly Cos­metic Pack­age” which con­sists of ecoLux­u­ri­ous cos­met­ics, which are hand coloured and 100% free of all syn­thetic chem­i­cals! This will include a base (liq­uid or pow­der — as you wish), a set­ting pow­der, a pressed eye­shadow, a loose eye­shadow, a blush and a lip gloss! SWEET!!!!!

 

To Enter:
