Noodle & Boo made in the USA

Green: Noodle & Boo

Shop Noodle & Boo! 100% Natural and made in the USA.

Noodle & Boo is a skin care company for Mama and baby. The creator of Noodle & Boo,Christine Burger, wanted to help out her child who has seriously sensitive skin. In the process of wanting to help her baby she also wanted to help all children who suffer from one ailment or another. Noodle & Boocreates products that are all natural, organic when possible and free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, PPG’s, GMO’s, dyes, triclosan, and formaldehyde donors. The products are made in recyclable/biodegradable packaging and significant portions of profits are donated to various children’s charities. Let it also be said that the items are made right here in the U.S.A.

I know you are tired of me saying it but I will say it again! It is our responsibilty to support businesses that make a point of being green as well as being American made. We can fix many a problem if we get back to manufacturing products ourselves and not importing everything. We need to be able to sustain ourselves and not have to depend so heavily on other countries to do the “dirty” work. Our laziness and selfishness has put us where we are today and businesses like Noodle & Boo can help us move passed that and get on to bigger and better things.

Noodle & Boo - giving back.

I always stress the importance of American Made products! Furniture is no exception. I know it may be difficult to find but possibly you aren’t looking in the right places. Oompa.com has Room Decor & Furniture all made in the USA! I will admit some of the items are pricey but combined with their green outlook on products I think it is worth it to spend a little extra to have environmentally safe products in your home.
We know bamboo is one of the most sustainable and environmentally sound building materials the Earth has so it is important to purchase big items such as furniture that is made from bamboo. If more people purchased furniture made from sustainable materials such as bamboo it would drive the prices down and possibly force larger companies to begin to use bamboo in their products as well.
Although sustainability is extremely important around the world even more locally I feel that purchasing American made products is just as much of our responsibility. Not enough products are made here in the USA and if we want to fix our economy we should support our workers and their products. This can only benefit all of us if we stick to our guns. You have heard about purchasing locally or being a locavore so why not when possible be a “locavore” for our country! The more we purchase products displaying MADE IN THE USA the more items can be made in the USA. It only makes sense!
