CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ SmartK­lean Kitchener-Waterloo {Non-detergent Laundry Ball} Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

 

 

 

I was recently given the absolute oppor­tu­nity to review the SmartK­lean Laun­dry Ball. From day 1, I was com­pletely sold on it. I want all of you to just imag­ine doing a load of laun­dry with­out laun­dry deter­gent and get­ting the same results. Being green with­out the actual laun­dry deter­gent ingre­di­ents, plus no more hav­ing to spend hun­dreds of dol­lars per year on laun­dry soap and fab­ric soft­ener!! I know you would be just as impressed as I am with this SmartK­lean Non-detergent Laun­dry Ball!!

 

 

 

Get ready to rock your  laun­dry room because this laun­dry ball is non-detergent and uses ceram­ics found in nature to boost water’s abil­ity to phys­i­cally clean the dirt from your clothes, unlike your stan­dard deter­gents which are made from petro­chem­i­cals derived from crude oil, which mask clean and leave an unnat­u­rally strong scent!

 

“Inno­v­a­tive. Deliv­ers an effec­tive, toxic-free wash with­out the use of soap or deter­gent.
Earth-Friendly, People-Friendly. Derived from earth min­er­als, its active com­po­nents are for­mu­lated to leave no residues behind in the water or fab­rics, mak­ing it 100% safe for peo­ple of all ages and the envi­ron­ment. Ideal for sen­si­tive skin and eczema. Recy­clable, BPA & PVC-free.
Super Eco­nomic. Its full power lasts  up to 365 washes or more! Addi­tion­ally, with­out any foam or residues, it requires no rinse cycle, sav­ing ‘loads’ of water & energy!
Healthy for your wardrobe. It nat­u­rally main­tains the soft­ness, elas­tic­ity and color of the fab­rics. In com­par­i­son to any laun­dry deter­gent, your clothes and linens will last much longer. No more fad­ing, sta­tic cling or stiff fab­rics means no fab­ric soft­en­ers or dryer sheets are nec­es­sary!
Easy to use. Just toss it in the washer with your laun­dry! Com­pat­i­ble with all HE and front loader wash­ing machines”

 

 

 

The SmartK­lean Laun­dry Ball is great because it saves both time and money. It is super easy to use, just sim­ply toss it into the washer with loads of clothes. You can use it for an entire year!! It will do over 1000 washes and save big bucks on laun­dry deter­gent, and is a 100% toxin-free alternative!

 

tat

 

I tried this Non-detergent Laun­dry Ball the first time with a big load of whites. Now we are talk­ing about white t’s with armpit stains of my hus­bands, a white shirt that was spaghetti sauce splat­tered, and just other whites in gen­eral. I was hon­estly amazed with the results after the clothes were washed and dried! They did not have that strong deter­gent smell, and ALL of the stains were gone!! They were whiter and brighter than always!! :)

 

 

I am super impressed with the SmartK­lean Laun­dry Ball and totally rec­om­mend that every­one pur­chase one! It will save you big bucks on deter­gents and you know that your clothes will be clean!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ EcoMom LOVE Reusable Bags Chill Set Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

logo

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.

eco

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!!

ec

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.

ec1

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!!

ecc

Thanks to the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Eco­Mom, 1 very lucky Cool­Canucks reader has the chance to win a $25.00 e-certificate to spend how­ever they want at the Eco­Mom web­site!! SWEET!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Saffron Rouge Quality Organic Bath, Skin, Beauty and Aromatherapy Products Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Saf­fron Rouge has strict selec­tion require­ments for all its prod­ucts to make sure that they are free of toxic syn­thetic ingre­di­ents, syn­thetic col­ors, fra­grances and preser­v­a­tives, and are never tested on animals.

“Saf­fron Rouge is the first beauty retailer in the world to focus exclu­sively on organics.

Offer­ing over 1,000 of the world’s finest organic beauty & aro­mather­apy prod­ucts, Saf­fron Rouge is North America’s #1 online des­ti­na­tion for organic skin care, cos­met­ics and aromatherapy.

In order for a prod­uct to be sold at Saf­fron Rouge, it must meet the fol­low­ing criteria:

1. It must have at least one of the organic body care cer­ti­fi­ca­tions, or pro­vide suf­fi­cient evi­dence to Saf­fron Rouge that they are using cer­ti­fied organic con­tent as much as pos­si­ble.
2. All non-agricultural or processed agri­cul­tural ingre­di­ents in a prod­uct that can­not be cer­ti­fied organic must be on The Green List™. Saf­fron Rouge con­sid­ers prod­ucts that con­tain even one Black List™ ingre­di­ent not accept­able for sale.

This way we can guar­an­tee that all the prod­ucts avail­able at Saf­fron Rouge are free of toxic syn­thetic ingre­di­ents, syn­thetic col­ors, fra­grances and preser­v­a­tives, and are never tested on animals.”

Saf­fron Rouge is a gigan­tic cosmetics/personal care store and extremely planet friendly! Saf­fron Rouge sells only organic and bio­dy­namic per­sonal care prod­ucts. And they don’t just say they sell organic: They hold every prod­uct up to a strin­gent set of tests for purity, qual­ity and effec­tive­ness prior to list­ing the prod­uct on their site. They also list won­der­ful infor­ma­tion about why you should use organic prod­ucts, such as under­stand­ing organic cer­ti­fi­ca­tion or under­stand­ing preser­v­a­tives. They carry an exten­sive range of brands includ­ing Dr. Hauschka, Nvey Eco, John Mas­ters and more!

Every prod­uct at Saf­fron Rouge is 100% organic and made to work won­der­fully on your skin.
With most prod­ucts that claim they’re organic, more than often they’re not. I’m always dis­ap­pointed with prod­ucts that claim they’re organic and in the ingre­di­ents list I find out that they actu­ally aren’t.  Saf­fron Rouge’s prod­ucts are all per­son­ally tested by the own­ers and they don’t list them on the site if they wouldn’t use them themselves.

Saffronrouge.com is my new go to place for all my beauty needs!!

Saf­fron Rouge sent me their hot sell­ing Pri­mav­era Rose Pome­gran­ate Face Scrub and it is amazing!!

“For­merly called “Nat­ural Bal­ance Exfo­li­at­ing Cleanser” — Leave skin radi­ant, soft and more even toned with this gen­tle exfo­lia­tor for nor­mal, mature and sen­si­tive skin types. The NaTrue 70% cer­ti­fied organic for­mula gen­tly sloughs away dead skin cells with round jojoba wax beads that won’t cause micro tears on the skin’s sur­face. Unlike most scrubs, this for­mu­la­tion doesn’t draw impu­ri­ties out of the skin, which makes it ideal for del­i­cate and sen­si­tive com­plex­ions. Organic rose essen­tial oil helps pro­mote skin cell turnover while reduc­ing bro­ken cap­il­lar­ies. Organic pome­gran­ate seed oil con­tains pow­er­ful antiox­i­dants to fight free rad­i­cal dam­age. And sooth­ing organic apri­cot ker­nel oil soft­ens skin for a nat­ural glow. Skill­fully crafted, the pure for­mula is made with the high­est qual­ity of herbs and oils gath­ered in part­ner­ship from a world­wide com­mu­nity of sus­tain­able organic and bio­dy­namic farms.”

I give this com­pany a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend Saf­fron Rouge to everyone!!


This left my skin feel­ing reju­ve­nated and sim­ply radiant!

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Saf­fron Rouge have gra­ciously offered to give 1 very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win this awe­some Pri­mav­era Rose Pome­gran­ate Face Scrub as well! SWEET!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ OtterBottle.ca Insulated Tote Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

You all pretty much know by now how much sav­ing the Envi­ron­ment means to me, and find­ing eco-friendly com­pa­nies is extremely impor­tant to me!

I was delight­fully over­whelmed when I stum­bled across all of the eco-friendly prod­ucts that OtterBottle.ca carries!!

We are now hear­ing it every where – the rea­sons to go eco-friendly, green prod­ucts, save the envi­ron­ment and recy­cle. But what does it all really mean and why do we need to become more eco friendly?

One obvi­ous rea­son is so that we can save our planet. Just think­ing about the enor­mous stash of plas­tic bot­tles that are thrown away every year which can­not dis­in­te­grate into the land.

Another big thing is Sav­ing ani­mals from extinc­tion! So many of the var­i­ous breeds of ani­mals and insects and all man­ner of liv­ing crea­tures are becom­ing threat­ened because of our habits.

And thirdly, Greener, envi­ron­men­tally friendly prod­ucts are much more kinder to our own health!

With that being said, Otter­Bot­tle is cer­tainly a Cana­dian Green com­pany who con­tributes greatly to the well being of our­selves, the envi­ron­ment, as well as the safety of our animals!

By recy­cling we can save energy, land space, money, and at the same time cre­at­ing new jobs, reduce air and water pol­lu­tion and keep our for­est green. Just a  lit­tle bit of everyone’s help can be a big thing!

By recy­cling, our home’s can be clean and we can reuse the same stuff again, and it can save us a lot of money each year.

By work­ing together, we can save our planet and keep it greener.

About Otter­Bot­tle, a blurb from their website:

“Since a very young age, Shan­non Andrukow has been a health enthu­si­ast and envi­ron­men­tal­ist keen on pre­serv­ing the planet for her fam­ily and future gen­er­a­tions. Advo­cat­ing the impor­tance of small steps to sav­ing the envi­ron­ment to friends and fam­ily (reduc­ing con­sumerism, reusing prod­ucts and avoid­ing per­ish­able ones, dri­ving less, recy­cling, turn­ing out lights, reduc­ing water use, seek­ing renew­able energy sources, encour­ag­ing green prod­ucts for the house­hold, buy­ing local, and so on), Andrukow has always prided her­self on her ded­i­ca­tion to help­ing Mother Earth.

After hav­ing kids, she became even more health-conscious and her inner-environmentalist emerged in full force.  Andrukow had been research­ing Bisphe­nol A (BPA) for a num­ber of years (long before Health Canada’s announce­ment to ban BPA) and after test­ing a cou­ple of “sus­tain­able” water bot­tles Shan­non found that she was not sat­is­fied with the look and per­for­mance of those bot­tles. Always a major pro­po­nent of reusable con­tain­ers, the options for a safe and styl­ish bot­tle at the time were extremely limited.

Shannon’s eco-chic diva sur­faced and she not only wanted to make a dif­fer­ence but she also wanted a bot­tle that spoke to her indi­vid­ual style.  Not to men­tion that she also wanted to pur­chase from a Cana­dian com­pany that sup­ported our envi­ron­ment – some­thing that was harder to do than she thought it would be!  There was no such com­pany out there, so she decided to make it her per­sonal mis­sion to cre­ate one.

She finally decided to cre­ate Otter­Bot­tle Inc. when she explored the idea with her hus­band and good friends.  Her close friend pro­vided her with the final nudge that she needed by encour­ag­ing her to pro­ceed with the thought of start­ing a com­pany that addressed all her concerns.

Andrukow devel­oped Otter­bot­tle Inc.– the name was born out of her desire to find a name that rep­re­sented some­thing pure, healthy and, of course, Cana­dian.  The otter, an ani­mal that lives in the water that we all need to pro­tect, was a per­fect fit.  What bet­ter than to have a com­pany name that is vir­tu­ally impos­si­ble to forget!

For Shan­non, found­ing Otter­Bot­tle Inc. has allowed her to do what she loves most in life; spend her days at home with her kids and make a dif­fer­ence for the earth that she wants to preserve.”

I was sent to review one of their won­der­ful new Insu­lated Tote Bags — no more using aim­less amount of plas­tic bags! They are intended to be reused repeat­edly to replace the use of hun­dreds of HDPE plas­tic bags.

Prac­ti­cal, Col­lapsi­ble, Com­pact and Reusable — Shop­ping and Reusable Insu­lated Tote Bags are styl­ishly durable and come in a vari­ety of colour­ful multi-patterns and designs.

I totally love mine and know that you will too! The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Otter­Bot­tle have gra­ciously offered to give 1 very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win an Insu­lated Tote as well! SWEET!!

CoolCanucks Review of SMQ Organics Pure Collection Organic Bamboo Fitted Crib Sheets!!

Friday, May 28th, 2010

 

bamb

“We are a Designer, Man­u­fac­turer, Whole­saler and Retailer of Deluxe Organic Hand­made Crib Sheets and Accessories.

Owned and oper­ated by a local Mom of two and Entre­pre­neur in Toronto Ontario Canada.

When my first baby was born in 2006, I started mak­ing my own organic crib sheets because I wasn’t happy with the qual­ity of what was cur­rently on the mar­ket. I believed that my baby deserved the best and so does yours.

To make a long story short, we man­u­fac­ture the finest crib sheets in the world.

No expense is spared when select­ing the high­est qual­ity fab­rics for our Crib Sheets. You won’t find a softer sheet anywhere.

All of our prod­ucts are hand­made in Canada with ten­der lov­ing care and the utmost atten­tion to detail.

We source Organic and other Eco Friendly fibers from as close to home as pos­si­ble. Our cur­rent lines include Organic Cot­ton, Bam­boo and Soy.

Smq Organ­ics does not use any fac­tory pro­duc­tion at all. So, our qual­ity is guaranteed.

We never make more than 100 of the same sheet and often offer Lim­ited Edi­tion Sheets (less than 25), so your sheet will be almost as unique as your baby.

We’re so proud of our sheets that we offer a Life­time Guarantee.

Organic bed­ding is more com­fort­able, lasts longer, repels dust mites and mildew, and doesn’t have any of the harm­ful chem­i­cals habit­u­ally used in tra­di­tional bed­ding — tox­ins that  steadily weaken our immune sys­tems and cause addi­tional prob­lems to allergy sufferers.

Organic prod­ucts in all facets of daily life are on the rise…and for good rea­son. Many peo­ple real­ize what chem­i­cals are in nor­mal commercially-produced food and are mak­ing the switch to organic, but what about your bed­ding? Tra­di­tional bed­ding is made out of cot­ton, often mixed with polyester.

Smq Organ­ics sent me a really gor­geous soft Organic Flan­nel Fit­ted Crib sheet to review and we love it so much!

Why should we use organic bed­ding for our­selves or for our babies? If you’re not already con­vinced, con­sider this: the chem­i­cals used in non-organic house­hold items are eas­ily stored in the body and dis­rupt the func­tion of the endocrine sys­tem. While it may be impos­si­ble to com­pletely elim­i­nate these harm­ful chem­i­cals in mod­ern life, it is easy to elim­i­nate our most acute expo­sure to them. To recap, with organic bed­ding you will get lux­u­ri­ous com­fort, dura­bil­ity, mildew and fire resistance…all with­out any man-made chem­i­cals at all!

I give Smq Organ­ics a huge thumbs up, and totally rec­om­mend this great com­pany to everyone!!’

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Eufora International Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

eufo

 

I recently stum­bled upon Eufora Inter­na­tional and became intrigued with all they had to offer. I instantly wrote the com­pany who agreed to do a review and give­away with Cool­Canucks, and I was beyond impressed with this company’s cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time for starters — it was beyond outstanding!

After devot­ing the last 10 years to cre­at­ing eco-friendly prod­ucts, organically-driven hair care man­u­fac­turer, Eufora Inter­na­tional, real­ized it was time to revamp their image to bet­ter reflect their com­mit­ment to high-quality, healthy, environmentally-conscious beauty. All Eufora prod­ucts are based in or con­tain an active amount of Cer­ti­fied Organic Aloe Vera Gel, which con­tains all 22 Amino Acids. In addi­tion, Eufora uses the most advanced botan­i­cal ingre­di­ents avail­able that have sci­en­tif­i­cally been proven to ben­e­fit the hair, scalp and skin, as well as pure essen­tial oils to fra­grance all prod­ucts for an aro­mather­apy expe­ri­ence. Eufora’s unique blends of botan­i­cal, vit­a­min and other non-carcinogenic ingre­di­ents deliver per­for­mance that exceeds the high­est of expectations.

Eufora is the only salon pro­fes­sional prod­uct line to pro­vide cer­ti­fied organic Aloe Vera in the opti­mum qual­ity and con­cen­tra­tion required to deliver its true power.

Eufora hair and skin prod­ucts uti­lize the secret beauty ingre­di­ent, Aloe Vera Gel, to offer a selec­tion of the finest pro­fes­sional hair care prod­ucts and advanced body care for­mu­la­tions. Eufura hair sham­poo and con­di­tion­ers con­tains nature’s best kept secret — Aloe Vera Gel. Using this plant, along with aro­mather­apy oils, Eufora has been able to cre­ate spe­cific sham­poos for thin, fine hair to dry, curly hair.”

I had the extreme plea­sure of being able to review the Eufora Urgent Repair Replen­ish­ing Treat­ment, and this stuff is truly amazing!! 

This fab­u­lous prod­uct is an intense replen­ish­ing con­di­tion­ing treat­ment for chem­i­cally or envi­ron­men­tally stressed hair. Reg­u­lar use helps restores the inner struc­ture bring­ing back health and vital­ity to dry and dam­aged hair. Will not weigh down the hair. After one week of it’s usage I defi­nately noticed a dif­fer­ence in the struc­ture — my dry and brit­tle dam­aged hair regained life and I could not be hap­pier!! I really rec­om­mend this fine prod­uct to any­one! You can actu­ally feel it tin­gle and know that some­thing amaz­ing is hap­pen­ing! Urgent Repair is inten­sive for your needy hair.

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Envirobottles Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Thursday, March 11th, 2010

     

    You all pretty much know by now how much sav­ing the Envi­ron­ment means to me, and find­ing eco-friendly com­pa­nies is extremely impor­tant to me!

    I was delight­fully over­whelmed when I stum­bled across all of the eco-friendly prod­ucts that Envi­ro­bot­tles carries!!

    We are now hear­ing it every where — the rea­sons to go eco-friendly, green prod­ucts, save the envi­ron­ment and recy­cle. But what does it all really mean and why do we need to become more eco friendly?

    One obvi­ous rea­son is so that we can save our planet. Just think­ing about the enor­mous stash of plas­tic bot­tles that are thrown away every year which can­not dis­in­te­grate into the land.

    Another big thing is Sav­ing ani­mals from extinc­tion! So many of the var­i­ous breeds of ani­mals and insects and all man­ner of liv­ing crea­tures are becom­ing threat­ened because of our habits.

    And thirdly, Greener, envi­ron­men­tally friendly prod­ucts are much more kinder to our own health!

    With that being said, Envi­ro­bot­tles is cer­tainly a Cana­dian Green com­pany who con­tributes greatly to the well being of our­selves, the envi­ron­ment, as well as the safety of our animals!

    By recy­cling we can save energy, land space, money, and at the same time cre­at­ing new jobs, reduce air and water pol­lu­tion and keep our for­est green. Just a  lit­tle bit of everyone’s help can be a big thing!

    By recy­cling, our home’s can be clean and we can reuse the same stuff again, and it can save us a lot of money each year.

    By work­ing together, we can save our planet and keep it greener.

    About Envi­ro­bot­tles, a blurb from their website:

    “We, at Envi­ro­bot­tles, are con­cerned about the many issues sur­round­ing our health and safety and the impact plas­tic and other dis­pos­able and toxic items have on our envi­ron­ment. There­fore, it is our man­date to pro­vide the con­sumer with prod­ucts that are afford­able, easy to use, reusable and yet, by their every­day use, will make a dra­matic impact for the bet­ter on our environment.

    We have been in busi­ness since 2003.

    We are fam­ily owned and oper­ated and have evolved and changed as we have become more edu­cated and aware of the need for the prod­ucts you will find on Envirobottles.ca. We do our very best to pro­vide our cus­tomers with hon­est and reli­able ser­vice, valu­ing every client who puts their trust in us by plac­ing an order whether it be big or small. We appre­ci­ate everyone.

    From our stain­less steel bot­tles to glass baby bot­tles, Wrap-N-Mats to soy can­dles our prod­ucts will assist you in becom­ing part of the move­ment towards cre­at­ing a greener earth and a brighter future. We are always look­ing for new and inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts and infor­ma­tion that ful­fill our man­date so check our web­site often to stay current.

    In 2009 we became Cana­dian dis­trib­u­tors for 2 eco friendly prod­ucts: Wrap-N-Mats, the resuable sand­wich wrap­per and place­mat in one and Drop-Guard glass baby bot­tles, with a per­ma­nent sil­i­cone sleeve these glass bot­tles become shat­ter­proof.  We look for­ward to pro­vid­ing these fine prod­ucts in the mar­ket­place.“
     

    I was sent to review the won­der­ful ‘Wrap-n-mats’ along with a Wrap-n-mat Pouch, a drop guard baby bot­tle, and a few other good­ies that were included in this great GREEN pack­age! No more using aim­less amount of plas­tic bag­gies, as the wrap-n-mat is a fan­tas­tic inven­tion that let’s you wrap your sand­wich over and over again!! The wrap-n-mat pouch is also a neat lit­tle prod­uct as well for car­ry­ing crack­ers, pret­zels, snacks, what­ever! Phe­nom­i­nal! I totally love them!!

     

    Is that not the neat­est idea ever?? They come in many colours and fab­u­lous designs!

     

    I only wish I’d have found Envi­ro­bot­tles a long time ago!

    Envi­ro­bot­tles car­ries an exten­sive line of Eco-friendly prod­ucts that are designed to please! Have you checked out their fan­tas­tic line of Drop Guard baby bot­tles yet? If not, please do so by click­ing here!

    “Drop-Guard uti­lizes an inno­v­a­tive design tech­nol­ogy to pro­tect infants and tod­dlers from bro­ken glass.


    •Drop-Guard’s glass con­tain­ment sys­tem is the safety par­ents look for with glass baby bot­tles.
    •Our sil­i­cone sleeve is a per­ma­nent acces­sory on the baby bot­tle cre­at­ing a maintenance-free alter­na­tive
    •Sil­i­cone sleeve con­tains all the GLASS and LIQUID.
    •Per­ma­nently adhered directly to the bot­tle, does not wear off.
    •Bac­te­ria and germs can­not get between the glass and sil­i­cone.
    •Eas­ier to han­dle and less slip­pery to par­ents and babies.
    •Microwave and dish­washer safe.
    •Envi­ron­men­tally friendly, non-toxic and recy­clable.
    •Crys­tal Clear over-mold, can­not tell it’s shat­ter­proof until you touch it.
    •nip­ple is sil­i­cone
    •EVENFLO BOTTLES”

    Envi­ro­bot­tles also car­ries drinkware, pro­mo­tional items such as tote bags, recy­cled pens, golf balls, and much more!!

    Also find eco-friendly prod­ucts there such as the can crusher which is one funky lit­tle handy gad­get that is per­fect for schools, restau­rants, etc!

    A huge kudos goes out to Envi­ro­bot­tles for their EXCELLENT eco-friendly prod­ucts, I totally rec­om­mend this com­pany to anyone!!
