Father’s Day Gift Guide – Flipflop Wines Review

As I was looking for items to review for Father's Day gift ideas, I was contacted by Flipflop Wines and asked if I wanted to review some of their wines. I thought that would be a great addition to our Father's Day gift guide here at Mama on a Green Mission. My husband and I are not really wine drinkers (or any kind of  alcoholic beverage drinkers, really) but I thought it would be nice for him to try these and for him to have a glass of wine here … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin’ Day 4 – Diapering at Night

As I mentioned the other day during the out and about post, we didn't use cloth at night in the beginning. It terrified me, probably because I read too many stories about people having leak problems. After a few months of cloth diapering, I began thinking more and more about how much I didn't want those chemical filled disposable diapers on my baby, especially at night when he would be in a wet diaper for many hours. I decided we had to make the … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin Day 3 – WAHMIES Wet Bag Review and GIVEAWAY! #clothdiapers

If you saw my post yesterday about going out and about with fluff, you know it is very important to have a good wet bag to take along for outings. WAHMIES makes wet bags, pail liners, cloth wipes and even diapers! They were kind enough to send me a regular size wet bag (approximately 13" X 15") to review and another one to GIVEAWAY! Yay!! They sent a black and white print that is just too pretty! I love it! These wet bags come in a variety of … [Read more...]

Celadon Road Review and GIVEAWAY!

When I had the opportunity to do a review for Celadon Road I found it so hard to chose what type of products I wanted to review, because they have so many! They offer not only cleaning products, but also shower gels, sugar & salt scrubs, mud masks, baby bottles, toys, lovies, gift bags, reusable sandwich bags, shopping bags, and the list goes on and on! Celadon Road is a direct selling company that makes it easier to live a greener life by … [Read more...]

Summer Fluffin Day 2 – Out and about with Fluff

I have to admit (shamefully) that when we first started using cloth diapers, we did not use cloth while out and about or at night. I know, terrible. Not having any prior experience with cloth, we used disposable diapers while out because we just thought it was easier. It didn't take long though for me to adjust to using cloth at home and then I'd say it was only a few months before I started using them while out. We used mostly AIO diapers … [Read more...]

Green Tip Tuesday

Now that it's getting warmer, don't forget to bring along a reusable cup for drinks while being out and about! If you are a coffee person I would hope you already have a hot reusable cup, but they even make them for cold drinks now! They are GREAT and most even have a reusable straw as well! Many times a gas station or store will give you a small discount for using your own cup so don't be afraid to ask! These cups typically cost between $7 and … [Read more...]

Ways to Save on Electricity

We could all use a few reminders on how to save electricity. If you are new to going green you may be wondering how electricity can contribute to the environment. Let me see if I can answer that for you. Most of the time electricity is created by burning coal, which then turns the turbines and creates electricity. The more coal that is burned, the more greenhouse gases are produced. Greenhouse gases contribute to global warming. Too much … [Read more...]

The Cookware Company/GreenPan Review

Ladies, I have an amazing product to share with you today! I absolutely love to cook. My wonderful husband would question that since I don't do it everyday, but when I have the time, I love it! It has been rather difficult for me to find cookware that I love but I have recently found just that...cookware that I am totally in love with! It's called GreenPan and these products are referred to as a "new generation of cookware". GreenPan develops … [Read more...]

There is so much information that I want to include in this review but I am going to try and shorten it so that you aren't reading for 2 hours! This is REALLY worth the read though because this is some GREAT information! I was so happy to find a place like Levana Naturals! First, the owner, Beate, is incredibly sweet and helpful in making sure to educate others on organic clothing. She taught me so much about organic clothing and actually … [Read more...]

Green Tip Tuesday

With the price of gas steadily rising I figured what better green tip than one that will help save the planet AND help save some money? Driving less can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and can save you from putting more gas in your tank before you want to! Ok, well no one really wants to, but before you have to, how about that? :) Before you leave for your next outing think about if what you are about to do can be combined with other errands … [Read more...]

Green Living Festival

I was so excited a few weeks ago when I saw a commercial for a "Green Living Festival" that was going to be very close to us! I couldn't wait to go! I asked some friends of ours if they wanted to go and we were just waiting for the day! Ok, well I was just waiting for the day! LOL LA was sick last week with a fever and it finally went away Friday so we were happy that we would all be able to go! Of course the weather had to not cooperate. It's … [Read more...]

Peter Rabbit Organics Review and GIVEAWAY

Peter Rabbit Organics is a small, privately owned company that was started by a group of five people who had a desire to put children's health first. They wanted to create a snack that was healthy and did not contain sugar or salt. They wanted to know that the foods they ate (and their children ate) contained no artificial ingredient but still tasted good. What they came up with became Peter Rabbit Organics, super tasty food that is produced in … [Read more...]

Green Tip Tuesday – Recycling

One of the changes we are making this year is recycling. Terrible we didn't previously recycle, I know. Crazy that our city charges $10 per month to get the recycle bin to put out with the trash. That makes me mad because it discourages people from recycling. I did find that we can drop off our recyclables on Saturday mornings though, which we do instead of spending the $10 per month. Here are some things we recycle now: Glass - all baby … [Read more...]
