What Green Products Would You Buy with $50?

What eco-friendly products would you buy if you had $50 to spend? Would you invest in quality, chemical-free lunch containers? Would you surprise your child with a super cool (and calming) Buddha Board? Or would you grab a mini crank lantern to use when the power goes out?

Lavish & Lime Offers Eco-Friendly Products Approved by a Review Panel

Lavish & Lime was started by a husband and wife who knew there were eco-friendly products out there, they just were not readily available in Canada. In 2007 they launched their company, and a panel of expert reviewers to find quality, eco-friendly products that are natural, non-toxic, and made in Canada.

I was given the opportunity to shop and review Lavish & Lime so that I could share the experience with you. I chose items that I had been considering for some time.

Notice the professional tissue-wrapped product packaging

 

Reusable produce bags

Reusable cloth produce bags size small and large

Yay! No more plastic produce bags! And the small bag is the one holding 2 heads of broccoli.

 

Reusable snack bags

Reusable snack and sandwich bags with Velcro closure

These are large enough to fit a sandwich or a ziplock baggie full of chips!

Some of my new fave eco-friendly products and my Mom Central gig

So, I have a new gig. Well, not so new as I've been doing it since April. I'm now writing twice a week for Mom Central Goes Green.

You've seen lots of reviews and giveaways here that are sponsored by Mom Central. When they had a call for writers (a paid position) I applied and was accpeted!

The past few years I've dabbled more and more in the green lifestyle and many of the products I've been covering over there I've purchased on my own.

Here are just a few that I've written about lately:

Unbleached Natural Waxed Paper Sandwich Bags

I've traded in my plastic sandwich bags for these and LOVE them. We reused them over and over for dry snacks (chips, crackers, etc). Here's the full review over at Mom Central.

 

Biobag Compostable Trash Bags

Everytime I took out the kitchen trash I cringed. I've reduced the number of plastic bags around here by using reusable grocery bags and switching to paper bags for the kitty litter. So trash was the one place I would see plastic bag after plastic bag. I found Biobag at Whole Foods and feel much better when I bring out the trash. Read my full review at Mom Central.

Reusable Produce Bags

OK, I haven't tried these yet but they are next on my list. That's the 'other' plastic bag I haven't been able to completely get rid of. I will sometimes take one of my reusable grocery bags and designate one for produce but you still have to take the fruits and veggies out and put them on the dirty belt at check-out. Any of you purchased reusable produce bags that you love? Read the full article at Mom Central.

Do you have a suggestion for something I should cover over on Mom Central Goes Green? Do you have a favorite eco-friendly product? Let me know! And stop over there sometime and leave a comment when you get a chance :).
