CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Splendipity Organic Ultra Soft Blanket and Burp Cloth Gift Set Giveaway!!

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

 

 

 

The col­our­ful aes­thetic and heart­warm­ing ethic of Splendip­ity was born out of the tal­ent and ded­i­ca­tion of one cre­ative mom, Susan Kiley. Over the years, Splendip­ity has matured, refin­ing the essen­tials of its char­ter mis­sion and blos­som­ing into an extra­or­di­nary force in the children’s organic prod­uct line.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Splendip­ity’s items are so soft, and made from Organic cot­ton. The cot­ton in the blan­ket and burp cloth set that I received to review feels like it is dou­ble sided, with an extremely soft fleece type feel­ing on the inside.

Splendipity’s items are def­i­nitely made of high qual­ity which lasts not only through every day washes but also through sev­eral kids! You can shop com­fort­ably online from the com­fort of your own home where every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on their web­site to make shop­ping with them a com­plete snap! You will also find that their prices are extremely low and rea­son­able, which is an added bonus!!

 

 

They use organic cot­ton that con­veys the company’s ded­i­ca­tion to work­man­ship, cre­ativ­ity and global social respon­si­bil­ity. Not only are these items fash­ion­able, they are also eco-friendly! Also, 5% of all prof­its are gen­er­ous given to var­i­ous children’s char­i­ties, with SIDS being their top charity.

“Our num­ber one com­mit­ment is our con­tin­ual sup­port of SIDS, a won­der­ful non-profit orga­ni­za­tion that works to reduce the risk of future infant deaths, sup­port fam­i­lies who have suf­fered a loss, and fund med­ical research so that no new fam­i­lies have to endure the pain of los­ing an infant.”

 

 

 

 

I give Splendip­ity a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend them to every­one!! Their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time were also beyond out­stand­ing for the Organic Ultra Soft Blan­ket and Burp Cloth Gift Set that they sent me to review! One can­not ever go wrong shop­ping at Splendip­ity, be assured!

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 ~ Lit Cosmetics Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Friday, May 27th, 2011

These glit­ter cos­met­ics are truly amaz­ing. I would rec­c­om­mend them to any­one! I have owned other big brand name Glitter’s and none of them even come close com­pared to Lit cos­met­ics glit­ter. First of all the glit­ter is VERY pig­mented, and they are very true to colour. This is what I seen in the pack­age that I received. I was very excited!!

The Amaz­ing thing about the Lit cos­met­ics Glit­ter Base is that it really does NOT allow the glit­ter to crease on your eyes. And It can also be used as a base for eye­shad­ows which is what I tried for a day and your eye­shadow lasts all day and night (until you take it off of course.) It enhances the colours of the eye­shad­ows, and I have also used it under my blush and it works with that as well! This is amaz­ing! I love this stuff!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to any­one who loves glit­ter and wants it to last all day long!

Lit cos­met­ics insists that with No Glit­ter there is No Glory!!  Start your LIT expe­ri­ence off with one of their great kits that include every­thing you need to add some glitz your look right up!  These nat­ural, water-based prod­ucts are alco­hol, paraben and Propy­lene Gly­col free.  LIT Cos­met­ics are hypoal­ler­genic and ideal for sen­si­tive skin. This fun, excit­ing prod­uct is easy to use and suit­able for every­one.  Bring some sparkle to any party with LIT Cos­met­ics or put them on your giv­ing list for some­one spe­cial and deserving!

Lit Cos­met­ics glit­ter is amaz­ing because unlike other glit­ter bases this one is com­pletely organic, and when it’s on you don’t even feel the glit­ter is there. No sticky, itchy, fly every­where mess. Best of all the patented water-based glit­ter base will last you for years. It’s a bang for your buck and a real defi­nate “must have.” They have the best cos­met­ics out there by far! Also note: ship­ping is just $10 any­where in the world!

Who Should Wear Lit Cos­met­ics
Our “tar­get mar­ket” is vir­tu­ally every­one. Lit prod­ucts are prac­ti­cal for all ages, both sexes and every skin tone. Our prod­ucts are worn by every gen­er­a­tion: daugh­ters, moth­ers, and grand­moth­ers all wear Lit! You will fall in love after the first appli­ca­tion and really what it comes down to is: “girls just wanna have fun!”

Along with every­day wear, Lit Cos­met­ics is per­fect for:

•Fig­ure skaters
•Dancers
•The­atre per­form­ers
•Cir­cus per­form­ers
•Cheer­lead­ers
•Face paint­ing
•Cos­tume par­ties
•Hol­i­days
•And much more!

HISTORY
The Birth of Lit Cos­met­ics
The idea for Lit has roots back in 2001 when Jodie Perks, the owner/inventor of Lit Cos­met­ics, was sling­ing drinks in the night clubs around Cal­gary. Hav­ing always been a fan of fun makeup and a lit­tle “bling, bling”, Jodie felt the need to be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from the rest of the girly girls serv­ing up drinks. That’s when she hit on the idea of glit­ter eye makeup!

The basic con­cept was sim­ple; sparkles give a look of opti­mum colour inten­sity and light reflec­tion at all times of the day and into the night. Jodie had finally hit on a cool makeup to match her flashy personality!

After look­ing into the prod­ucts on the mar­ket there was sur­pris­ingly no decent glit­ter eye shad­ows to be found, thus Jodie was forced to take mat­ters into her own hands and began exper­i­ment­ing. Long hours and months of test­ing in her “top secret” base­ment lab eval­u­at­ing the pros and cons of all other glit­ter prod­ucts she exposed a num­ber of flaws, the most obvi­ous being the appli­ca­tion process and the adhe­sive. With time and deter­mi­na­tion, Jodie devel­oped a won­der­ful adhe­sive that holds, is com­fort­able and keeps the bril­liant shine of the glit­ter, as well as a whole new appli­ca­tion process for an excit­ing loose colour cos­metic line. Since 2001, Lit Cos­met­ics is now not only a bar-star prod­uct but has grown into a makeup that can be worn by any­one of any age at anytime—and that’s how Lit was born!

Why Lit is Dif­fer­ent
“No glit­ter, no glory” is our motto—fun, yet true. Being in “glit­terol­ogy” (the sci­ence of glit­ter) for 6 years we have improved glitter/loose colour makeup as it is sold in the mar­ket today. With our liq­uid adhe­sive now per­fected, we have also bro­ken down our pig­ments into 4 dif­fer­ent sizes and 4 dif­fer­ent varieties-Lit sim­ply spe­cial­izes in glitter/loose colour makeup. Remem­ber: There are no rules when it comes to Lit! From a sin­gle colour high­lighter to hav­ing 10 shades blended over your eyelids-we dare you… Let the fun begin, and your cre­ativ­ity soar!

What is the Vision of Lit Cos­met­ics?
Other than want­ing to “glit­ter the world” it has always been our dream to change the way peo­ple per­ceive or think about glit­ter makeup. Our vision was to cre­ate a good qual­ity, sexy new makeup line unlike any other that is fun, excit­ing, easy to use and suit­able for every­one. Whether it’s a day at the office or a spe­cial night out, glit­ter is the per­fect com­pli­ment to your look. Get noticed, get con­fi­dent — get Lit!

A Note To Cus­tomers
Hello fel­low Lit Chicks and we can’t for­get about those Lit Dudes out there, it is now time to have fun and be cre­ative with your make-up, acces­sories and fashion—to real­ize that girls do just want to have fun, as Cyndi Lau­per preached to us in the 80’s. Life is way too short to be bor­ing or to sim­ply be bored. Don’t be one of those girls who says, “Oh, that looks great on her but I could never pull it off.” You know who you are, and there are a lot of you because I hear it every sin­gle day! So don’t be blocked by your­self, break though and be bold, be beau­ti­ful. This next bit of infor­ma­tion may sound a lit­tle odd but it’s true, and all the present glit­ter girls of the world know this lit­tle secret and I believe in it as well: glit­ter is good for the soul. Some­thing hap­pens when you add a lit­tle glit­ter to your day. It gives you a smile, a good energy and just pumps you up and makes you feel glam, bam, thank you ma’am! So give Lit Cos­met­ics a try and enjoy every­thing you get out of it, like I have for the past 11 years! My final piece of advice for you is to stay young and try not to take things so seri­ously all the time, there is no age limit for glit­ter so you old gals like myself get it goin’ on and always remem­ber, “no glit­ter, no glory!”

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Lit Cos­met­ics have gra­ciously offered to give 1 very lucky Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win a Mini Me Lit Kit! 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 ~ Raw Gaia Organic Skin Care Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Raw Gaia is the world’s first range of liv­ing skin care products.

Every­thing they make is organic, cruelty-free vegan and free from any chem­i­cals. They only use truly nat­ural ingre­di­ents such as organic cold-pressed but­ters and oils, essen­tial oils and flo­ral waters.

They make all their prod­ucts by hand, through a spe­cial low tem­per­a­ture process. In this way, their prod­ucts retain all the life energy, antiox­i­dants, vit­a­mins and min­er­als in the ingredients.

Because their skin care prod­ucts have a liv­ing qual­ity to them and they are absolutely pure, they are really good for the skin and have won­der­ful mois­tur­is­ing and nour­ish­ing qual­i­ties. They’ve had an amaz­ing response ever since they started and in fact, their prod­ucts have been fea­tured in many mag­a­zines includ­ing Organic Life, Top Sante, Vogue, Brand New You, Nat­ural Health, Women’s Fit­ness, Pos­i­tive Health and Lifescape. Their prod­ucts are avail­able through their online store and in many health food shops, online stores and beauty salons, in over 14 countries!

Raw Gaia is a com­pany built on solid eth­i­cal, envi­ron­men­tal and ani­mal wel­fare prin­ci­ples. They are also the first skin care com­pany in the world to have adopted an “eth­i­cal mar­ket­ing” approach to beauty and age­ing.
Try Raw Gaia and expe­ri­ence the nour­ish­ment that only some­thing as nat­ural, alive and pure as Mother Earth can give!

I was sent to review their amaz­ing MSM Beauty Cream and it is absolutely phenomenal!

“A mag­i­cal cream that helps to pro­mote a vibrant and smooth com­plex­ion MSM Beauty Cream is espe­cially good for mature skin, dam­aged tis­sue and heals scars since it is made pri­mar­ily of MSM, known as The Beauty Min­eral (read more about MSM).

Ingre­di­ents: In addi­tion to MSM, Raw Gaia’s MSM Beauty Cream is made with:

Suit­able for all skin types, espe­cially good for mature, tired or dam­aged skin.

Here are some com­ments from peo­ple that have tried the MSM Beauty Cream:

“Thanks to the MSM Beauty Cream, my skin now feels really soft. Some of the blem­ishes on my skin and dark patches under my eyes have gone. My skin also feels firmer.” Julie, London

“After using it just once my skin felt softer and smoother, it’s fan­tas­tic! It’s fab­u­lous to know you are using some­thing so nat­ural and so in har­mony with Mother Earth.” Tina, N E Lincolnshire

For Best Results: Use a very small amount at first. You will grad­u­ally find the amount that works best for you. To give your face a nice silky feel you can either apply the mois­turiser to a wet face or mist one of our flo­ral waters after applying.

Please note that the MSM Beauty Cream may feel slightly gritty when you first use it. This is nor­mal and sim­ply due to the MSM flakes in the cream which are quickly and eas­ily absorbed into the skin where they do their won­der­ful job!

Please note: Preg­nant women should not use this cream since it con­tains essen­tial oil of myrrh, which is said to cause uter­ine contractions.”

You now have the oppor­tu­nity to try out this great MSM Beauty Cream for your­self thanks to the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Raw Gaia!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Preston Cosmetics North American Hemp Co. Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Nat­ural skin care is the care of the skin (the largest organ of the body) using naturally-derived ingre­di­ents (such as herbs, roots, essen­tial oils and flow­ers) com­bined with nat­u­rally occur­ring car­rier agents, preser­v­a­tives, sur­fac­tants, humec­tants and emul­si­fiers (every­thing from nat­ural soap to oils to pure water). The clas­sic def­i­n­i­tion of nat­ural skin care is based on using botan­i­cally sourced ingre­di­ents cur­rently exist­ing in or formed by nature, with­out the use of syn­thetic chem­i­cals, and man­u­fac­tured in such a way to pre­serve the integrity of the ingredients.

As a result of this def­i­n­i­tion, many peo­ple who use nat­ural skin care prod­ucts, turn to Pre­ston Cos­met­ics for their all-natural cos­met­ics and envi­ron­men­tally friendly per­sonal care products.

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics cur­rently car­ries the ever pop­u­lar brand called “North Amer­i­can Hemp Co.” as to which all of these fan­tas­tic prod­ucts are cur­rently avail­able to pur­chase. High qual­ity cos­met­ics at unbe­liev­ably low prices!! North Amer­i­can Hemp Co. is the first all nat­ural per­sonal care prod­ucts made with cer­ti­fied organic hemp seed oil!

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics is thrilled to announce 2 won­der­ful brands launch­ing in the Spring/Summer of 2011 called “Hush” — the nat­ural evo­lu­tion of salon pro­fes­sional hair care, and “Boo Bam­boo” — Nature’s fastest grow­ing plant has been har­nessed into a col­lec­tion of hair prod­ucts that’s guar­enteed to make your hair strong and glo­ri­ously shiny in no time flat!!

In the Fall of 2011 be sure to watch for Pre­ston Cos­met­ics — prod­ucts that are renew­able, rare, exotic, and mirac­u­lous!! How exciting!!!

Cos­met­ics nowa­days are con­sid­ered for both men and women. Nat­ural and organic cos­met­ics are fast becom­ing a trend in the indus­try. “Going green” for the envi­ron­ment has influ­enced the lifestyle of many peo­ple includ­ing their choice of make up, cos­met­ics, and skin care products.

Ide­ally and in gen­eral, all-natural and organic cos­met­ics are not tested in ani­mals and they do not con­tain chem­i­cals. Con­stant use of chemical-based make up on the face or skin can be harm­ful. Nat­ural cos­met­ics con­tain plant oils and extracts, barks, spices and dif­fer­ent oils from flow­ers. Elim­i­na­tion of unnat­ural ele­ments from your face and body can improve your com­plex­ion and skin condition.

Organic cos­met­ics appear the same as chemically-based cos­met­ics. They also come in var­i­ous colours and can enhance a woman’s beauty. The advan­tages of using nat­ural make up include health­ier skin and bet­ter com­plex­ion. The dif­fer­ence will become notice­able as you con­tinue to use pure organic cos­met­ics. Do your own research and dis­cover the ben­e­fits of using nat­ural beauty prod­ucts for your face and body.

Pre­ston Cos­met­ics was extremely kind and gen­er­ous in send­ing me a huge box filled with fab­u­lous prod­ucts from North Amer­i­can Hemp Co.! I was ecsta­tic when it arrived and saw all of the great prod­ucts in that box!

Included was hemp hang­nail helper — hand & nail cream, linoleic line lift­ing face cream, area 369 hair serum, organic oil oasis scented body oil mist, smooth cleanse smooth­ing sham­poo, and smooth seal smooth­ing con­di­tioner, all in full size!!!!! Also included were many trial sized sam­ples of the sham­poo, con­di­tioner and area 369 hair serum to make trav­el­ling much eas­ier!! I was beyond impressed with the gen­er­ous amount they sent me to try, and the deliv­ery time and cus­tomer ser­vice skills were also outstanding!!

Hemp is one of the most ver­sa­tile plants known. It can be grown in most cli­mates, is drought resis­tant, requires lit­tle fer­tiliser, min­i­mal pes­ti­cides or her­bi­cides, and has a range of uses. The seeds can be used as food and fod­der, and can be processed to pro­duce hemp oil. The stalks pro­vide fibre for tex­tiles, cloth­ing, rope, paper and build­ing prod­ucts. The bulk of the woody stalks can be used for paper, ani­mal bed­ding, and plas­tics. The hemp plant bio­mass can be used to pro­duce fuel. Any­thing that trees/timber can be used to pro­duce, hemp can pro­duce and more, includ­ing house construction!!

I give Pre­ston Cos­met­ics a huge thumbs up, and defi­nately rec­om­mend them to everyone!

The very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at Pre­ston Cos­met­ics have gra­ciously offered to give 1 VERY LUCKY Cool­Canucks reader the chance to win the exact same box chock full of items from North Amer­i­can Hemp Co. that I was sent to review! SWEET!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Nature’s Path Organic Foods Love Crunch Cereal Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

SPREADING THE LOVE ONE SPOONFUL AT A TIME

Nature’s Path Empow­ers Con­sumers to Fight Against Hunger with New Love Crunch Granola

Rich­mond, BC– Where’s the love? Nature’s Path Organic Foods is sup­port­ing Food Banks Canad­aby bring­ing the love to your break­fast table, and to peo­ple in need across the coun­try.  Nature’s Path Love Crunch, a deli­cious dark choco­late gra­nola, is a lim­ited edi­tion cereal that helps con­sumers take part in the fight against hunger.  Inspired by a true-life love story and phil­an­thropic endeavor, for each box of Nature’s Path Love Crunch sold, another box is donated to Food Banks Canada*.

Born out of love and a pas­sion for both cereal and phil­an­thropy, Love Crunch was cre­ated by Arjan Stephens, Exec­u­tive VP of Sales and Mar­ket­ing for Nature’s Path and son of Nature’s Path’s founder, and his wife, Rimjhim as a wed­ding favor for those who helped cel­e­brate their mar­riage.  In lieu of wed­ding gifts, the two asked that their guests do a vol­un­teer com­mu­nity project and post to a project page which they aptly named “The Expe­ri­ence Giv­ing Project.”  The result was count­less acts of kind­ness and good in local com­mu­ni­ties worldwide.

The cou­ple and Nature’s Path then joined forces to bring this wed­ding favor to life as a tasty cereal that will help change our com­mu­ni­ties one spoon­ful at a time.   “We at Nature’s Path are so excited to see this project come to life as it is near and dear to our hearts,” said Arjan Stephens, Vice Pres­i­dent of Mar­ket­ing and Prod­uct Inno­va­tion for Nature’s Path.  “By pur­chas­ing Love Crunch you can expe­ri­ence giv­ing by help­ing fel­low Cana­di­ans who are strug­gling to put food on their tables.”

Nature’s Path Love Crunch is the per­fect mar­riage between the whole grain good­ness of flax gra­nola; the sweet­ness of straw­ber­ries and the tart­ness of rasp­ber­ries; and the deca­dence of coconut and dark choco­late chunks.  Like all Nature’s Path prod­ucts, it is cer­ti­fied organic, which means it doesn’t con­tain arti­fi­cial preser­v­a­tives, addi­tives, genet­i­cally mod­i­fied organ­ism (GMOs) or syn­thetic pes­ti­cides.  Love Crunch also bears the new Non GMO Project Ver­i­fied Seal, which lets con­sumers know that the prod­uct has passed a rig­or­ous, inde­pen­dent ver­i­fi­ca­tion process and is the best choices in order to avoid genet­i­cally mod­i­fied organ­isms (GMOs).

Did you know?: Nature’s Path has raised over $300,000 in cash and food for the Greater Van­cou­ver and Rich­mond food banks through their annual Com­pas­sion Into Action fundraiser. In 2010 we donated a total of $1,000,000 in cash and food prod­ucts to food banks across North America.

Did you know?:  Nature’s Path recently pur­chased 2,240 acres of fer­tile Saskatchewan farm­land while part­ner­ing with local organic farm­ers on a coop­er­a­tive crop-share basis. This rep­re­sents our lat­est ini­tia­tive to increase organic crop­land and sup­port fam­ily farms.


Cere­als and grains play a large part in most people’s diets. Cere­als can be both nutri­tious and delicious.

What is “organic”? Organic means food that is grown with­out the use of pes­ti­cides, her­bi­cides and chem­i­cal fertilizers.

Why eat organic vs. con­ven­tional grown foods?

Some rea­sons are:
•higher nutri­tional con­tent
•less tox­ins
•bet­ter qual­ity
•bet­ter taste

I had the extreme plea­sure of being able to review this new Love Crunch Cereal from Nature’s Path Organic Foods and it is beyond scump­tious! Right down to the bot­tom of the box our entire fam­ily went in just a mat­ter of 2 days!! IT IS that tasty!!!!! It cer­tainly is the BEST Organic Cereal we have ever tasted!

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 ~ 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!!
