Little Beetle Organic Cotton Learners

It is potty training time in our house with our 2 years old Sophie. I found the perfect training pants, they are 100% certified organic, fair-trade cotton velour. What sold me on them was the snaps on both side, when you have a #2 accident, it is perfect! With 3 layers of cotton, they will absorb a lot. I also love their softness.

The sneakers are made with 100% Fair Trade-certified organic cotton canvas upper and tough rubber sole. The sole is produced and stamped with FSC-certified all natural and sustainable rubber. That means the rubber was actually tapped from a tree in a well managed and growing forest instead of being made from chemicals like other rubber products. All dyes used on the canvas are PCP and AZO free.

The American Ducki by Dano2

Finally a well designed, safe bath duck toy. Dano2 sent me a free sample of Ducki, their new bath toy. It is PVC-free, made with FDA-compliant medical grade materials. It is of course BPA- and Phthalate-free. It has a clever hatch on the bottom that opens for cleaning and allow it to air out at the end of each bath. So no yucky stuff growing inside it. I love it. Sophie, my 2 year old is delighted to have her bath ducky back.

Genetically Modified Food

Do you know that "between 60% and 70% of multi-ingredient foods in the United States may have been made with "biotechnology crops", meaning GM crops", according to an e-mail i received from Kellogs after inquiring if they use GM foods for their cereals. "Like most other food makers in the nation, we buy the ingredients for our foods on the open market and it is likely that these ingredients could have biotech content in the same proportion that it occurs in the national supply.". What drove me nuts about the response was that they don't openly say they buy GM food ( like they would not know). In Europe, they have to label on the package if GM ingredients was used. Why not in the US. Check out The Non GMO Project for more info on GM food and their risks and how to avoid them.
