The Real Price of Your Bottled Water

I think most people would agree that water is vitally important to good health.  After all, our bodies are mainly comprised of it.  And we need to replenish it frequently because it’s used by our muscles, organs and tissues and we lose water through perspiration and waste elimination.  But while modern day society has embraced the concept of drinking water regularly, we have created a whole new set of problems for ourselves.

When I was a little girl, drinking water meant you needed a…

Why is local search engine optimization essential for your business?

June 12, 2012, by Bassem Ghali, Green Lotus

We are all noticing more local search results “7-pack” posted at the top of any major search engine results page. Does this mean You can rank higher than your competitors by simply listing your business address, and phone number, on Google, Bing, Yahoo local center? YES, if you do it right! Don’t worry though; I’m listing best practices for…

Confessions of a Not Always Been Green Mom

I have a confession to make:  I was not always a Green Mom.  Just like I wasn’t “born” being a mom, I wasn’t born being green either.  Growing up, I ate vegetables out of a can, drank water out of the hose on hot days, and consumed waaaaay too much sugary cereal.  As a teen, I sprayed too much hairspray from an aerosol can, threw things away without thinking, and drove every chance I got, even if I was only going down the block.

When I did become a mom, my attitude…

Green Moms in Winter - Braving the SubZero Temperatures

Boy, what a difference a couple days make!  This past weekend, I was so excited that temperatures were warm enough to run errands on my bicycle.  Not so this morning.  This morning, we were greeted with a wind chill of -14 degrees.

For those of you who are not sure what a “wind chill” means, that is the number assigned to what the temperature feels like if you factor in the wind.  For those of us here in the Midwest, it just means brutal cold! And while yes, we should expect…

Truly Green Christmas

Nothing makes me feel quite as sad as the trash collection days that immediately follow Christmas Day.  It’s pretty rare that our trash can is even full, and yet I see such an abundance of trash up and down our street as people bring their cast offs to the end of the driveway, waiting for the trash collector to come and haul it all away.  Bags and bags of torn wrapping paper, bows and torn cardboard gift boxes; oversized cardboard boxes that once held toys and gadgets…

Trick or Treat for Busy Moms

Fall feels like it has officially arrived when pumpkins begin to make appearances on front steps.  It is especially fun to see the transformation from robust orange vegetables to scary faced creatures staring back with illuminated geometric eyes and wide mouthed grins.

With this hello to fall comes the…

Are You Worried About GMO Food? Big Tumors in Rats Fed GMO Corn

I'm hesitant to feed my family genetically engineered food (GMO), and now I have even more reason to avoid that kind of food engineered in a lab, some of it containing built-in pesticides like Roundup.

Now to today’s big news: Massive mammary tumors, kidney and liver damage, and other serious problems were found in rats that were fed GMO foods according to the…

Book Review: The Adventures of Zeppi: New Friends (book 1)

In the middle of the night, a mysterious red truck races down Happy Town. Its cargo? Cages filled with penguins on their way to be shipped to another country. Suddenly the doors fling open and one cage rolls down the street and lands in a garden. From it, a little penguin steps out fearfully, awed at the world around him. Up…

Baby Led Weaning (BLW) Round 2 and 2.5ish

I like to say "round" instead of stage or trial, since we're in this for the long baby led weaning fight.  We'll be patient and we'll be diligent in our efforts.  I say "we" but it is really like a boxing match- it all depends on the other person (in this case: Bambina).  Even though I'm being a rebel by skipping all the purees and cereals, I am taking the usual 3-4 days in between introducing new foods in case there are any funky allergic-like reactions.

Sillyboy, as an infant,…

Moms & Daughter's Need Safe Cosmetics

I am a mom just like you.  I offer alternative cosmetics that are "paraben" & cruelty free.  Chemicals in cosmetics that are bought retail are not as safe as you think. Therefore, I am on a mission to buy and offer cosmetics/skincare that is safe and effective for myself and my daughter.  Please see EYE ON GREEN MAGAZINE. I publish this online organic/green beauty guide to let all know that there are better, and safer choices out there. My Website EYE ON BEAUTY also offers lip…

Every Day is Boxing Day

Boxing Day used to be a high point for many of us parents. After a year of buying full-price retail items and perhaps getting some items on sale every so often, this one day of the year promised to relieve us from the financial strain of raising children in a modern world. Kids, after all, are expensive.



While the holidays proved to be a high point of the year, let's face it: getting a snowsuit or new running shoes for our children at 60 per cent off was almost too much to bear.…

Mood Lighting with CFL Lights

Much to my chagrin, we are now in that time of year when days are getting noticeably shorter (I almost feel the vitamin D leaving my body as I type…). The lights in the house will indubitably get turned on earlier in the morning and earlier in the evening. I never used to think about how much energy a light bulb consumed but now, in trying to conserve resources, I do think about it every time I turn on a light.

It’s a good time of year to let you know about a product that I just…

Easier and Greener Leaf Pick-Up - dSolv

I will admit that I do not have much use for an eco-friendly leaf pick up and biodegradable bag as I live in Southern California, but I do remember that while growing up in Canada, raking the leaves before the first snowfall was a task for the entire family.

Dsolv bags makes this chore a little bit…
