CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ ChicoBag Reusable Bags Review & Giveaway!CLOSED

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

ChicoBag_logo_

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic – espe­cially plas­tic bags.


The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entangled.


They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.

The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife.


Thanks to ChicoBag Reusable Bags, there is no more need for this DREADFUL plastic!!

In 2004, ChicoBag Pres­i­dent Andy Keller went to his local land­fill after doing some back­yard land­scap­ing, and was shocked by the num­ber of plas­tic bags he saw. On the way  home, he noticed plas­tic bags caught in trees, stuck in fences, blow­ing along on the ground. He vowed that day to stop using plas­tic bags, and using a sec­ond hand sewing machine, began work­ing on what would become the first ChicoBag.

All of ChicoBag Reusable Bags are neatly cat­e­go­rized and also come in an exten­sive array of fash­ion­able designs and colours mak­ing shop­ping a com­plete snap! Not only are these bags eco-friendly, they are eco-chic to boot!!

ChicoBags are made from recy­cled mate­ri­als includ­ing pop bot­tles into bags that are both func­tional and stylish!

I was sent the CHICOBAG MESSENGER10 rePETe with a great waist strap to review, and one lucky Cool­Canucks reader will win one of these sweet bags as well, cour­tesy of the kind and gen­er­ous folks over at ChicoBag!! SWEET!!

CoolCanucks Review of Organically Grown 100% Organic Cotton Baby Girl Onesie!

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

 

Have you ever actu­ally felt 100% organic cot­ton clothes? They are unbe­liev­ably soft. And, just the mere fact of know­ing you have done the envi­ron­ment some good gives you a sense of respon­si­bil­ity. Organic cot­ton clothes are made from organic cot­ton, which is cot­ton pro­duced, or har­vested, with­out any pes­ti­cides, chem­i­cal fer­til­iz­ers, or genet­i­cally mod­i­fied (GMO) seeds.

Peo­ple buy organic clothes for a lot of dif­fer­ent rea­sons. Some peo­ple buy organic cloth­ing because it makes them feel bet­ter know­ing that they are doing some­thing main­tain their health and the plan­ets health. Oth­ers buy them because they pos­sess more aes­thetic appeal. The dif­fer­ence between nat­ural fab­ric and unnat­ural fab­ric is the way it has been grown. Cot­ton that is grown with the use of pes­ti­cides is con­sid­ered unhealthy and haz­ardous to the envi­ron­ment and human health in general.

When peo­ple use pes­ti­cides to grow their plants, they are harm­ing more than many of us real­ize. The chem­i­cals from pes­ti­cides can eas­ily seep into the ground and get into our drink­ing water, which is why there are so many warn­ings about drink­ing tap water. Every­one should buy organic cloth­ing because it helps to make a state­ment to sell­ers. Did you know that cot­ton is cur­rently the most widely sprayed crop in the world? There is no other plant in exis­tence that is as weighed down with pes­ti­cides as cotton.

 

 

Organ­i­cally Grown Baby– a new line of high qual­ity, 100% organic baby cloth­ing are irre­sistibly adorable and you will want to have your baby wear them!

Organ­i­cally Grown Baby apparel line comes in sizes new­born to 9 months and is made from super-soft brushed jer­sey and terry velour organic cot­ton. Their adorable three piece sets con­sist of baby gowns, body suits, jack­ets, pants, blan­kets and hats that are afford­ably priced from $20-$38!

 

 

Organ­i­cally Grown is a 100% cer­ti­fied organic cot­ton lifestyle brand that brings safe, afford­able organic worker friendly prod­ucts to the global marketplace.

Organ­i­cally Grown Group has moved beyond baby cloth­ing. They now have divi­sions for:

•Chil­dren
•Men
•Women
•Home décor


The com­pany believes strongly in the con­cept of organic fab­rics, as well as edu­cat­ing con­sumers about the ben­e­fits of an organic lifestyle. Their organic line of baby cloth­ing is con­sid­ered to be high qual­ity as well as afford­able by most consumers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Their entire col­lec­tion of baby cloth­ing is made of 100% organic cotton.

Organ­i­cally Grown sent me a 100% Organic Cot­ton Baby Girl One­sie to review, and it is beyond fab­u­lous! So soft, so adorable, so cud­dly!! Lit­tle Caleigh looks so styl­ish and eco-chic!

 

I am totally impressed with Organ­i­cally Grown, and they get a huge thumbs up from me! Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time were beyond out­stand­ing as well!!

Be sure to become their Face­book Friend by click­ing here, or even fol­low them on twit­ter for new and upcom­ing spe­cials and deals!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Fill Your Own Raining Cats & Dogs large lunch kit Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Fill Your Own is a great Van­cou­ver Canada com­pany that is extremely envi­ron­men­tally con­scious. From stain­less steel water bot­tles, plastic-free food con­tain­ers, reusable lunch bags, fold­ing shop­ping bags and litter-less lunch kits — you are sure to find every eco-friendly prod­uct you are in search of!!

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 Fill Your Own 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, Fill Your Own 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 Fill Your Own, a blurb from their website:

“Two years ago, our fam­ily was look­ing to become a greener house­hold. Not find­ing what we wanted in a reusable water bot­tle, we designed our own. We wanted our bot­tles to be prac­ti­cal for every day use, healthy, safe and eco-friendly. We also wanted being ‘green’ to be fun and stylish.

The result was our stain­less steel water bot­tles which fea­ture beau­ti­ful art­work by Cana­dian artists. In addi­tion to being reusable, our water bot­tles are fur­ther off­set by Gold Stan­dard car­bon cred­its for a ZERO car­bon footprint.

With the suc­cess of our water bot­tles, we’ve expanded our line of prod­ucts to now include stain­less steel food con­tain­ers, reusable lunch bags, litter-less lunch kits and com­pact shop­ping totes.

We believe that every­one can take a step towards greener every day liv­ing, and we’ve made it eas­ier to take the FIRST step.”

I was sent to review one of their won­der­ful hot sell­ing Rain­ing Cats & Dogs — large lunch kit and absolutely love it!! No more using aim­less amount of plas­tic bags to pack my sand­wiches, snacks, or even to carry my lunch in! These super lunch kits are intended to be reused repeat­edly to replace the use of hun­dreds of HDPE plas­tic bags that end up lay­ing in the land­fill for years on end!! These are the best lunch kits I have ever used in my life!

Prod­uct Fea­tures
– Includes: 18/8 stain­less steel Lily Seren­ity water bot­tle – 500ml, 8oz and 16oz stain­less steel food con­tain­ers, and a 100% rPET lunch bag

-  NO waste, NO garbage. Litter-less lunches in reusable con­tain­ers pro­duce zero waste.

- NO more ‘brown bag­ging it’. Litter-less lunches are great for kids and adults.

- Fun designs by Cana­dian artists

- Sus­tain­able for the envi­ron­ment and eco­nom­i­cal for the wallet

- Car­bon neu­tral: man­u­fac­tur­ing and end-to-end ship­ping are off­set with Gold Stan­dard car­bon cred­its for a ZERO car­bon footprint

- Care & Use Instructions

I give Fill Your Own a HUGE thumbs up, and rec­om­mend this great com­pany to everyone!

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.

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 Organically Grown Organic Cotton Boys “Polar Bear Stripes” Coverall!

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

 

Have you ever actu­ally felt 100% organic cot­ton clothes? They are unbe­liev­ably soft. And, just the mere fact of know­ing you have done the envi­ron­ment some good gives you a sense of respon­si­bil­ity. Organic cot­ton clothes are made from organic cot­ton, which is cot­ton pro­duced, or har­vested, with­out any pes­ti­cides, chem­i­cal fer­til­iz­ers, or genet­i­cally mod­i­fied (GMO) seeds.

Peo­ple buy organic clothes for a lot of dif­fer­ent rea­sons. Some peo­ple buy organic cloth­ing because it makes them feel bet­ter know­ing that they are doing some­thing main­tain their health and the plan­ets health. Oth­ers buy them because they pos­sess more aes­thetic appeal. The dif­fer­ence between nat­ural fab­ric and unnat­ural fab­ric is the way it has been grown. Cot­ton that is grown with the use of pes­ti­cides is con­sid­ered unhealthy and haz­ardous to the envi­ron­ment and human health in general.

When peo­ple use pes­ti­cides to grow their plants, they are harm­ing more than many of us real­ize. The chem­i­cals from pes­ti­cides can eas­ily seep into the ground and get into our drink­ing water, which is why there are so many warn­ings about drink­ing tap water. Every­one should buy organic cloth­ing because it helps to make a state­ment to sell­ers. Did you know that cot­ton is cur­rently the most widely sprayed crop in the world? There is no other plant in exis­tence that is as weighed down with pes­ti­cides as cotton.

 

Organ­i­cally Grown Baby– a new line of high qual­ity, 100% organic baby cloth­ing are irre­sistibly adorable and you will want to have your baby wear them!

Organ­i­cally Grown Baby apparel line comes in sizes new­born to 9 months and is made from super-soft brushed jer­sey and terry velour organic cot­ton. Their adorable three piece sets con­sist of baby gowns, body suits, jack­ets, pants, blan­kets and hats that are afford­ably priced from $20-$38!

 

Organ­i­cally Grown is a 100% cer­ti­fied organic cot­ton lifestyle brand that brings safe, afford­able organic worker friendly prod­ucts to the global marketplace.

Organ­i­cally Grown Group has moved beyond baby cloth­ing. They now have divi­sions for:

•Chil­dren
•Men
•Women
•Home décor


The com­pany believes strongly in the con­cept of organic fab­rics, as well as edu­cat­ing con­sumers about the ben­e­fits of an organic lifestyle. Their organic line of baby cloth­ing is con­sid­ered to be high qual­ity as well as afford­able by most consumers.

 

 

Their entire col­lec­tion of baby cloth­ing is made of 100% organic cotton.

Organ­i­cally Grown sent me an Organic Cot­ton Boys “Polar Bear Stripes” Cov­er­all to review, and it is beyond fab­u­lous! So soft, so adorable, so cud­dly!! Lit­tle Sammy looks so styl­ish and eco-chic!

“Winter-ready stripped cov­er­all with a cute polar bear embroi­dered on the belly. Long sleeved with lay­ered look. Free of tox­ins and chem­i­cals to keep your baby safe, and softer than ever before. Comes with dec­o­ra­tive padded hanger and 100% cot­ton guar­an­teed. You will feel good buy­ing, your baby will feel good wear­ing it! Makes a won­der­ful gift as well!”

I am totally impressed with Organ­i­cally Grown, and they get a huge thumbs up from me! Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time were beyond out­stand­ing as well!!

Be sure to become their Face­book Friend by click­ing here, or even fol­low them on twit­ter for new and upcom­ing spe­cials and deals!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest — Ecoland Organic Clothing Women’s pamper yourself gift set Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

Tracy is an apparel designer and mother of two girls. A few years ago, her life changed when she and her fam­ily began fol­low­ing an organic life style.

She found that it gave us tremen­dous energy, both phys­i­cally and men­tally. Tak­ing care of our health and pro­tect­ing the nat­ural envi­ron­ment felt great. Feel­ing inspired to share this good con­cept with every­one, she started Ecoland Inc.

“Our first brand for babies, “Ecoland for Angel”, is made exclu­sively from the high­est qual­ity 100% organ­i­cally grown cot­ton, which is cer­ti­fied by SKAL. All of our gar­ments are sus­tain­able processed and sewn in a sweatshop-free envi­ron­ment.  Our next lines, “Ecoland for Kids”, “Ecoland for Her”, and “Ecoland for Him” are made with the same high stan­dard as our baby brand.

Our phi­los­o­phy at Ecoland is based on sim­plic­ity. This is reflected in our line, which is pure and clean, with­out unnec­es­sary print­ing, trim­ming, embroi­deries, and appliqués, etc. Ecoland pro­duces qual­ity prod­ucts that will never go out of fashion.

Per­son­ally, I have been deeply involved in char­ity and social well­ness vol­un­teer activ­i­ties, espe­cially in the envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion area.  I believe that liv­ing an organic lifestyle is the most impor­tant thing we can do to help pro­tect our health and envi­ron­ment. I sin­cerely invite you to join us to pre­serve our mother earth!”

Have you ever actu­ally felt 100% organic cot­ton clothes? They are unbe­liev­ably soft. And, just the mere fact of know­ing you have done the envi­ron­ment some good gives you a sense of respon­si­bil­ity.

There is no other plant in exis­tence that is as weighed down with pes­ti­cides as cotton.

Ecoland Inc car­ries all sorts of phe­nom­e­nal eco-friendly and eco-chic styles of cloth­ing. Choose from many dif­fer­ent pieces of Organic cloth­ing such as bras, tank tops, socks, under­wear, draw­string pants, gloves and so much more all for babies, chil­dren, men and women! Every­thing is so rea­son­ably priced and neatly cat­e­go­rized on their web­site to make shop­ping with them a com­plete snap!!

Ecoland Inc. sent me a GORGEOUS Women’s pam­per your­self gift set which con­sists of a 4 piece set of organic cot­ton pajama set (Top and bottom’s) as well as
organic mois­tur­iz­ing socks and gloves all in the colour Nat­ural. They are so com­fort­able and unbe­liev­ably soft to the touch — you feel just like a princess when wear­ing them!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Planet People iQ cleaning system Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

Our Frag­ile Planet…
We all live on our planet Earth, and the major­ity of us just seem to con­sume and destroy instead of giv­ing back to our planet and mak­ing sure it stays in great con­di­tion for future generations!

It is some­thing that both­ers me and that is why I am more than ecsta­tic for Planet Peo­ple and their Earth-Friendly clean­ing prod­ucts that are cre­at­ing aware­ness about this issue!

The win­ning for­mula
“Who says envi­ron­men­tally smart clean­ing prod­ucts can’t be effec­tive? We believe that smarter clean­ing means not hav­ing to make a trade­off between eco-friendliness and per­for­mance. So we’ve devel­oped clean­ing solu­tions made from plants and other nat­ural sources that are non-toxic yet out­per­form lead­ing products.”

Scents-ible prod­ucts
“iQ prod­ucts are envi­ron­men­tally sen­si­tive and highly effec­tive – and they smell great too. Each prod­uct has been for­mu­lated with light, pleas­ing fra­grances to enhance the clean­ing expe­ri­ence. But to hold true to our com­mit­ment to green tech­nolo­gies, each fra­grance is care­fully screened for envi­ron­men­tal impact and safety like all iQ ingredients.”

Some say the 21st cen­tury is the cen­tury of envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion. It is easy to see why. Envi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion and eco­log­i­cal destruc­tion have reached a point that they are seri­ous threats to the health of mankind. When we do our part to pro­tect the envi­ron­ment, we give future gen­er­a­tions a fair chance to live peace­fully and work hap­pily on a healthy and thriv­ing planet.

In our daily life, we are engaged in all kinds of activ­i­ties that would dam­age the envi­ron­ment. We dump trash on earth, use chem­i­cals that are poten­tially poi­so­nous to other crea­tures, and our cars release pol­lu­tants into the air. Now is the time to stop this non­sense and rally together to save our planet!

We’re Planet Peo­ple
“In an age of “green­wash­ing”, where it seems every man­u­fac­turer claims to have peo­ple and planet-friendly solu­tions (even if they have skull-and-crossbones on the label), we are com­mit­ted to bring­ing truly environmentally-preferable solu­tions to the mar­ket. And just to make things really excit­ing for our sci­en­tists, we’re focused on the tough­est clean­ing and home health chal­lenges out there…

Moldy sur­faces, sticky kitchen messes, grimy decks and patios, dirty bath­rooms … we take on any sur­face with high per­for­mance solu­tions that you can feel good about using. That’s because they con­tain only non-toxic and envi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able ingre­di­ents that are safe for both you and the planet.”

I had the plea­sure of being able to review the entire Planet Peo­ple iQ clean­ing sys­tem and let me tell you, they are extremely phenomenal!

iQ All-Purpose Cleaner

This high per­for­mance cleaner cuts through grease and grime and leaves a streak-free fin­ish with no residue.

Fra­grance Green Tea
Ingre­di­ents Coconut derived sur­fac­tant, sodium glu­conate, bak­ing soda, potas­sium hydrate, fra­grance, colour­ing, water.
Sur­faces Coun­ter­tops, stain­less steel, appli­ances, fix­tures, fur­ni­ture and any other sur­face not nor­mally harmed by water.
Also try: iQ Bath­room Cleaner
iQ Glass Cleaner
iQ Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner

You will also be beyond impressed with your Planet Peo­ple iQ clean­ing sys­tem as well, as the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Planet Peo­ple have gra­ciously offered 1 iQ clean­ing sys­tem to one lucky Cool­Canucks reader!! SWEET!!!!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Miss Malaprop Review & $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Miss Mala­prop owner and founder Mal­lory Whit­field is a proud res­i­dent of New Orleans, Louisiana. Miss Mala­prop fea­tures many gifts inspired by New Orleans and made by New Orleans based artists. Miss Mala­prop is cur­rently donat­ing a per­cent­age of all sales (both online & in per­son events) to help with cleanup efforts related to the recent Gulf of Mex­ico BP oil spill dis­as­ter which makes me so proud!!

Miss Mala­prop is where mod­ern hand­made meets sus­tain­able design. On my web­site, I spot­light the best in inde­pen­dent design­ers & artists, eco-friendly and sus­tain­able prod­ucts, New Orleans & Gulf Coast based busi­nesses and issues, and peo­ple & orga­ni­za­tions who are work­ing to make the world a bet­ter place.

“My own cre­ations reflect those same prin­ci­pals. I began sell­ing my cre­ations under the name “dis­man­tled designs” in 2004, after arriv­ing home from a study abroad pro­gram in Lon­don where I saw the amaz­ing artists at Por­to­bello Mar­ket and where I was inspired to begin sell­ing my own recon­structed cloth­ing & accessories.

My designs are all one-of-a-kind, hand­made and orig­i­nal. Most are made from used or vin­tage cloth­ing, or rem­nant fab­rics and trims. Each piece is meant to have a slightly unfin­ished, rough-hewn, well-loved look about it. I hope you enjoy!”

Shop­ping at Miss Mala­prop is a com­plete snap, as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left all at extremely low, unbeat­able prices!!

The exten­sive lineup of prod­ucts include:

  • Gifts

  • Bath & Beauty
  • Cloth­ing
  • Home & Decor
  • Jew­elry
  • Make It
  • Paper
  • Fair Trade
  • Hand­made
  • Organic
  • Recy­cled
  • Miss Mala­prop is defi­nately your one-stop shop for all of your eco-friendly and eco-chic prod­ucts! I was sent some of her mag­ni­fi­cient Pra­lines and Cream Soap — Milk Soap with Pointe Coupee Pecans and it is BEYOND heav­enly! The smell is divine and sen­sual — smell the won­der­ful relax­ing aroma and just let your senses guide you!

    I had the oppor­tu­nity of being able to review one of these famous 9 oz Stain­less Steel Baby Bot­tles from organ­icK­idz™ and they are sim­ply amaz­ing! I have to say that I would not use any­thing else. They are very easy to clean, and I have never had a problem.….and I LOVE the designs,  they are so much eas­ier for my son to hold then other bot­tles I have tried along the way.  He has dropped the bot­tle a cou­ple of times and they do not break!!! I give organ­icK­idz™ Stain­less Steel Baby Bot­tles a huge thumbs up and totally rec­om­mend them to everyone!
