Organic Towel Set from the Turkish Towel Company Review and Giveaway

>> Thursday, September 30, 2010

organic towels I have been wanting to upgrade my towels. They make such an impression in a bathroom! I have also been looking for an organic cotton towel set and I found the perfect combination of eco-friendly and luxury at The Turkish Towel Company!

First, if you are like me, you may wonder, why Turkish cotton? Well, Turkish cotton is a premium cotton that has extra long fiber and is grown in the small but productive Aegean region. "Using longer fiber cotton in spinning yarn means fewer joins. Fewer joins results in stronger and smoother cotton threads. Turkish Cotton becomes even softer, fluffier, and more absorbent with successive washings." So these are quality towels that should last and last and feel great!

Now, why organic cotton? It turns out that cotton is so important to be organic not just because we touch the fabric against our skin but also because cotton is one of the most insecticide dependent crops! That means that about 25 percent of the world’s insecticide use and more than 10 percent of the world’s pesticide goes to cotton crops! So we can really impact the amount of chemicals entering our environment by choosing organic cotton.

When you can have organic and luxury combined, even better! So check out this sweet 100% certified organic towel set I got from the Turkish Towel Company. They are super soft and nice and fluffy! They are also smooth and a little shiny. They feel great. In fact, I almost feel like I should be saving them for special occasions! They are generously sized as well. They are available as a set or by towel type. Organic bath mats are also available at the Turkish Towel Company.


Naturally soft, luxurious and plush, these towels are made from 100% organic cotton, free from chemicals and pesticides. Be good to the earth and gentle on your body!


Go ahead and check out The Turkish Towel Company to buy luxurious organic (or conventional) bath towels and robes! You also have a chance to win a set right here, right now!

GIVEAWAY DETAILS:
The Turkish Towel Company has generously agreed to give one lucky winner one Organic Complete Bath Set, a luxurious, plush towel set made from 100% organic cotton, consisting of 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels, and 4 washcloths ($160 value).

I Wish I Traveled As Much As My Food! Why buying local is important!

>> Sunday, September 26, 2010

This is a guest post by Diane from Turning Back the Clock One Eco-Friendly Step at a Time Blog. I love her blog and I am sure you will to so go ahead and check it out!


I am always looking for educational opportunities to share with my children during the day and a trip to the grocery store is a geography lesson all by itself. Apples from New Zealand, oranges from South Africa, and grapes from Chili...the list of countries goes on and on. We hear every day how we live in a 'global economy' but what price to we pay for transporting our food halfway across the country before we eat it? There is a wonderful resource that you can read that is published by the National Resource Defense Council that goes into great detail about this topic. I am going to bore you with a couple of statistics...stick with me for just a minute!

According to the Center for Health and the Global Environment, food that is allowed to ripen on the vine is more nutritious. Since food that is coming from across the world cannot be allowed to ripen on the vine, it's nutritional value is lacking compared to locally grown produce.

According to the NRDC: "Imports by airplane have a substantial impact on global warming pollution. In 2005, the import of fruits, nuts, and vegetables into California by airplane released more than 70,000 tons of CO2, which is equivalent to more than 12,000 cars on the road."

Obviously, the increased air pollution caused by food transportation has an impact on the allergy and asthma rates in this country. Just one of many ways that air pollution impacts our health!

Okay, enough statistics! You know those apples, grapes and oranges I mentioned earlier? Those are all items which grow in my region! I live in Central Georgia. North Georgia has apples, Muscadine
grapes grow wild all around my town, and Florida (only a few hours away by truck!)is probably one of the most prolific orange growing regions in the country! So why is my food making a trans continental journey?

One big problem is that we Americans are slightly spoiled. (really?) We want asparagus in August and apples in February. If we want zucchini in March we are going to need to import it from somewhere hot since it will not grow in the U.S in March. One important aspect of eating a more locally grown diet is learning to appreciate and enjoy the produce that is in season!

So, what does this mean for my
weekly shopping list? I still have a family to feed, right? What I try and do is buy as close to my home as possible. If it is a choice between North Carolina blueberries or California strawberries, this week...we eat blueberries.

I choose organic foods whenever possible. There is a great article put out by the Mayo Clinic all about organic food. I won't go into detail but the effects of pesticides and fertilizers from traditional farming range from the Dead Zone in the Gulf of Mexico to possible increased risks of cancer, neurological issues and possible hormone imbalances. These are all things listed by the Environmental Protection Agency as possible results of pesticide exposure. Since my family is obsessed with bananas and I cannot find bananas growing locally, I choose
organic, which I can easily find in my local Publix. It's not local, but I like to think I have reduced my carbon footprint a little bit by buying organic.

Shop your local farmer's markets! Here in Georgia, zucchini grows like a weed in the summer. Farmers are practically GIVING it away! If you would like to find a farmer's market in your area, check out Local Harvest.org. Learn to preserve your summer bounty either by canning, freezing, pickling, etc. I recently got a book called Put 'Em Up by Storey Publishing to help me learn to preserve the items I can find in season. I will be reviewing and offering a giveaway of this book in a couple weeks so keep your eye out on my blog if you are interested in reading it! Peppers and onions can be sliced and/or diced and frozen back in convenient quantities for use in winter recipes. Last year, I stocked up on peaches and after removing the skins and slicing (15 minutes TOTAL for 3 pounds!) I froze them and made peach crisp several times over the winter. It does take some planning but it is not difficult to do!

Find a farmer! Use Local Harvest to find meat and poultry farmers, as well as produce. Some farmers require that you buy in bulk but if you can't afford it or don't have the room in your freezer, find a friend to buy a share with you! Nothing compares to the taste of grass fed beef!

There are so many more issues surrounding our food production system than I
have touched on in this article. The recent egg recalls have brought to light the
horrors of factory farmed eggs, however local legislation (at least here in Georgia)
makes it impossible for us to take control of our own egg production by raising
chickens. In my county, I can't have even ONE chicken unless I own *3 ACRES*
of land. Other issues like the increased resistance of bacteria to antibiotics has
been attributed to the massive use of antibiotics in livestock. Food born illnesses
are on the rise. Not to mention the humanitarian issues surrounding the raising of factory farmed animals.

Have you ever told your young child "Don't put that in your mouth, you don't know where it has been!"? I think more people need to take this same advice when it comes to the food they eat!

Kids Playing in the Dirt and Mud

>> Saturday, September 25, 2010

We spent the morning at the Nature Center. Again. They love that place. Today we spent lots of time at the dirt playground watching our kids playing in the mud. I don't know the official name but that is what we call it! They love making dirt pies, dirt gardens, and dirt volcanoes. I love seeing them pretend and have fun with "mother earth"!



I am thankful that we have that great muddy resource for our kids nearby. I remember that I loved playing in the mud too when I was little. In fact, I have one vivid memory of making a really amazing series of interconnecting dirt tunnels so that our imaginary boats could sail around my friend's backyard. We were so proud when we showed her mom. Her mom was not so proud that we dug up her backyard. So again what a great resource to have. Then we can wash the kids down at the water pump and get in the car and go home to our mostly mud-free yard!

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar and set aside. In a medium bowl mix beaten egg with orange juice, orange zest, butter and hot water.

Cugolino Wooden Marble Run From Oh! Toys Encourages Creativity and Building Skills

>> Friday, September 24, 2010


I like marble runs but I love the Cugolino Wooden Marble Run. It is awesome because it is more than just watching the marbles roll. It is building. It is a great collection of wooden blocks in different shapes and colors that can be arranged in endless possibilities. As you can tell, it is fun for the parent as well as the kids! And to me, that not only shows that the toy is engaging the brain and developing it but also provides a fun way to interact with your kids and let them see you building and creating too! My kids and I have tons of fun with the Cugolino wooden marble run.



Cugolino wooden marble run is specifically aimed at children 3 and over. Cugolino is free form, allowing for not only different shapes and colors, but a range of new concepts that come out in the supplemental sets like Cugolino Pop (with little trampoline blocks), Cugolino Magic (with hidden magnets), and Cugolino Hit (last year’s new set, which uses physics to create a Rube Goldberg-esque catapult for the marbles). And coming soon, musical blocks with built-in, but interchangeable chimes that ring as the marble passes over them. How cool is that?!


Check it out in action!


Why buy it: Experience the thrill of marbles rolling through your construction, the effects of gravity and unforseen effects. Cugolino places no boundaries and needs no rulebook. Just unpack and start playing!

Features of Cugolino Wooden Marble Run:
* Holds child's attention, even those with ADHD or autistic issues.
* Engages the child’s brain on solving the kinetic challenge of making a track, however simple or complex, that will successfully allow the marble to run the distance.
* Beautifully made and extremely durable
* Super fun for children and parents to play together.
* They grow with the child – that is, a 3 year old will play with it in a certain way, then in a more sophisticated way at 4, etc. – up to 12 or beyond).
* You can add on some of the cool sets like Cugolino Pop to keep challenging your child. (Or drop hints like crazy for grandparents, aunts and uncles as the holidays approach for those add-on sets!)

video

Cugolino wooden marble run is unique and really encourages creativity, planning, and learning all at the same time. I love how the natural wooden blocks fit together in all kinds of configurations to create sliding, bouncing, and twisting runs for the shiny marbles. Looking for a fun, educational toy for a Christmas present? You know what I suggest- The Cugolino Wooden Marble Run from Oh! Toys.



I was provided with the Cugolino set in the hopes that I would share my honest opinions. The opinions expressed are my own and those of my children.

"The Magic Violin" Children's Picture Book Review and Giveaway

>> Thursday, September 23, 2010

I recently discovered the author Mayra Calvani. She writes books for young children and middle-grade readers. I was lucky enough to receive one of Mayra Calvani's picture books to read my little bookworms.

I chose The Magic Violin for my kids because Sierra has expressed some interest in playing the violin and I thought it would be a good way to explore that further. Leo is also studying music in his pre-school class right now so I thought it would be great for him to read a story with a sting instrument in it.

This book reminded me of my experiences playing the violin when I was little and my relationship with my teacher. I really enjoyed reading it with my kids. I liked that the pictures and the words were very balanced so that there were enough pictures to interest my three year old and enough words to interest my 5 year old and I. For me, what I liked about it, is that it captured that sometimes things you want to do can be a lot of work and discouraging but a dose of self belief and practice can make them possible. And it did all that without being at all pedantic. In fact, there is a bit of magic and mystery mixed in for a very entertaining story that my kids really enjoyed. We also enjoyed the illustrations.

This book would make a great gift for a child in your life. You can purchase it at Amazon or you can enter for your chance to win it!

GIVEAWAY DETAILS: The winner will receive an autographed copy of The Magic Violin, by Mayra Calvani.

Giveaway Dates: September 23- October 5, 2010 Midnight CST

To Enter This Giveaway:
Do one or more of the following and post a comment below about each action you took. Each comment will count as a separate entry so your chances of winning increase but only the #1 entry is required.

Go Green with a Natural Clothing Company $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway

A lot of people take the first steps to going green by recycling and eating organic. Some people do not even realize that there is such a thing as organic clothing. Are you ready to find out more about eco-friendly clothing?

Organic agriculture protects the health of people and the planet by reducing exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with serious health consequences, from asthma to cancer. Cotton is actually a very important thing to buy organic because cotton uses approximately 25% of the world's insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides! The Environmental Protection Agency considers seven of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton in 2000 in the United States as "possible," "likely," "probable," or "known" human carcinogens! So organic clothing makes a huge difference!

Other eco-friendly green clothing fibers include hemp and bamboo. Hemp is one of the most useful and environmentally friendly materials found. Hemp uses considerably less water than cotton and is resistant to pest thus it does not herbicides. Hemp is classified as an Eco textile meaning it requires less energy, produces less carbon and, therefore, creates less pollution than other forms of fabric manufacturing. Bamboo has recently been gaining popularity as a sustainable fabric as it does not require pesticides, regrows quickly after a cutting, and absorbs 35% more carbon dioxide than an equivalent stand of trees.



Natural Clothing Company offers organic clothing made of hemp, cotton, and bamboo fibers which spare the planet a lot of insecticide and pesticide. Natural Clothing Company offers quality pieces that are timeless in fashion and style so that you do not have to replace them when the fad is over. You will find clothing made from fibers that are healthy, breathable, easy to care for, and luxurious in quality.
















GIVEAWAY DETAILS:
Natural Clothing Company is offering one $50 Gift Certificate which may be used toward their line of organic men's, women's, children's and baby clothing.

Giveaway Dates: September 23- October 7, 2010 Midnight CST

To Enter This Giveaway:
