Saturday, June 11th, 2011


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 Review of!

Sunday, February 28th, 2010


Novica is one of the lead­ing fair trade arti­san web­sites. Novica works with National Geo­graphic to give tal­ented arti­sans around the world a place to express their artis­tic tal­ents and pro­vide access to the world market.

Novica, in asso­ci­a­tion with National Geo­graphic, sells prod­ucts — home decor, jew­elry, apparel, gifts and more — made by arti­sans from Asia, Africa and Latin Amer­ica. Artists post their work on the Novica site for free; Novica allows them to set their own prices. The com­pany makes money when a piece sells, and goods ship directly from the coun­try of origin.

The online com­pany gives you the oppor­tu­nity to learn about the artists lives, explore fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tures,  and browse more than 30,000  unique gifts includ­ing green gifts, Gifts for her, apparel, home decor, beau­ti­ful hand­made jew­elry, Turquoise Jew­elry, Sil­ver Neck­lacesUnique Gifts, carved wood fur­ni­ture, gifts for mom, and soooooooooo much more!



Novica was designed specif­i­cally to give artisan’s a chance to sell their designs. This is such a great site. I was thor­oughly impressed with the designs that they offer! They offer any­thing from sil­ver jew­elry to home decor that are hand­made. They also offer gor­geous neck­laces! These arti­sans are truly gifted!

Each of the artists have a bio that you can view to get an inside glance at the per­son from whom you are pur­chas­ing from.

We want to give artists and arti­sans around the world a global plat­form to express their true artis­tic tal­ents and to spur their cre­ativ­ity. And, we want to pro­vide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great val­ues that only the Inter­net infra­struc­ture can allow.

At the deep­est essence of our phi­los­o­phy, we want to cre­ate a bridge between you and the many tal­ented arti­sans across the globe.

We want you to know about who you’re buy­ing from. We want you to feel that attach­ment to the prod­uct and to the hands that cre­ated it.”


Every­thing that sells is com­pletely gor­geous and made of high quality.

I was sent two really gor­geous unique hang­bags to review, and absolutely love them both!

Their deliv­ery time as well as their cus­tomer ser­vice skills are also beyond outstanding!!

“Mighty and regal, ele­phants cel­e­brate Thailand’s artis­tic her­itage in a design by Jiap Roj­jana. The bro­cade adorns a cot­ton shoul­der bag trimmed with rain tree wood and a coconut shell but­ton. The lined inte­rior fea­tures a prac­ti­cal pocket.”

“Embroi­dered in pre­cise pat­terns, hill tribe motifs form col­or­ful stars. Ancha­lika Cham­nan works with locally grown or pre­pared mate­ri­als to craft this chic shoul­der bag. The cot­ton motifs are applied to hemp, while lon­gan wood hoops attach the straps.”

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

I want to thank for let­ting me be part of their review!!
