Natural Train Letters – made in USA

How fun is this!!!??? You can get the train personalized! Growing up nothing ever had my name on it and I was always disappointed after searching endlessly and my name would never be there. I am not sure why personalized gifts are always so exciting but I feel like it adds a little something to the purchase.
You can show your support for the planet with an ethical and safe toy for your child or if you are giving it as a gift. You can never go wrong with that! The Name Train is also made in the USA which as you know is becoming more and more important by the day. Support our country and products made in it. The more we purchase the more opportunity we have to bring manufacturing back to our nation.  You can also recycle the train when you are finished with it.
You can use up to 8 letters which is pretty awesome if you ask me. Get a personalized Name Train. Engine, caboose, and 3 letters of your choice (add more letters for $4.75 each)
Ages 3+, made from hard maple with non-toxic finish.
Made in USA

You can find this an other great items at Our Green House.

Green Cupboards

It seems I have been slacking on my hunting down green businesses. I have been a bad beagle! I didn’t want to continue to disappoint so I have found GreenCupboards.com. I have written a few articles on items I have found at their store. GreenCupboards.com offers a wide variety of items such as toys, grocery items, outdoor, office and even electronics. I know many green retailers may sell green products but their values are lacking. GreenCupboards.comgoes out of their way to assure their customers that they are as legitimate as their products.

About GreenCupboards.com: Green Cupboards is a leading online retailer of eco-friendly products for homes and businesses. Based in Spokane, Washington, the company was the winner of a regional university business plan competition and was subsequently co-founded in 2008 by Gonzaga University graduates Josh Neblett, Sarah Wollnick and their Adjunct Professor, Tom Simpson.
Struck by the lack of one-stop shopping alternatives for eco-friendly merchandise, the co-founders set out to create a customer-centric brand and streamline the way people buy green. Greencupboards targets consumers who strive to do the right things to sustain the planet, yet are challenged to find a broad selection of eco-friendly products that work and cost about the same as a their non-green counterparts.
GreenCupboards offers the vastest array of thoroughly vetted eco-friendly products of any e-retailer in our market. We currently provide approximately 15,000 unique items from over 600 suppliers. Critical to our mission, we endeavor to provide an easy, fun and educational shopping experience, over-the-top customer service and competitive prices. To date, we have satisfied the purchasing needs of over 100,000 consumers.
GreenCupboards employs over 50 youthful, zany and eco-friendly minds. Our culture is as dynamic as the shopping experience we deliver.

The summer is coming quickly and the one thing I absolutely despised about it was bug bites! Most repellents are super gross but not miessense! Description: Every single ingredient in miessence certified organics line of products is beneficial to your skins health. Not only is every ingredient safe (in fact, edible) but every ingredient does something great for your skin right down to the preservatives and antioxidants.

Products are also cold-formulated so precious oils are never exposed to damaging heat.

I have compiled a list of products I hope you appreciate just as much as I do.

1. Nature’s Inventory  Wellness Oils are produced in the USA instead of exporting to China as many businesses do for cheap labor. Nature’s Inventory prides themselves in creating jobs for US citizens. Even more importantly Nature’s Inventory Wellness Oils are an excellent alternative to ingesting tons of toxic chemicals. Many people are wary of Eastern medicine, if you are one of those people start small. They offer wellness oils for Sweet Dreams which was developed because an employees daughter was having nightmares. Rub a few drops on your neck and chest instead of chugging down a of bunch pills. If your dreams are in fact sweet move on to their Back Soothe Wellness Gel and see how it feels. No harm in using products that come from nature.

2.Houndstooth 100% Recycled Polyester Dog Collars  These Westminster Pet Products earth-friendly collars are made in America using recycled plastic bottles, so less energy and petro-chemicals are used to produce the yarn.

The Westminster durable collars feature an assortment of sizes and colorful printed patterns, all of them proudly made in America. The Collars are also available in Small Dog & Cat sizes, and in an assortment of other colors and styles.
