Spooneez, an Eco-Friendly Utensil Carrier

As a parent, I often find myself trying to pack for a multitude of activities for the day. Most importantly snacks, utensils, and little treats. I can not count the number of times I have rolled up little dripping spoons and leftovers only to find myself reaching into a gooey messy later. Or even better, totally forgetting about this until I have to pry it loose from the inside of my bag.

This past weekend I had the great fortune of running across a most wonderful Mom invention called Spooneez. These nifty little utensil carriers allow you to roll up the mess. They are made of BPA, PVC, and Phthalate free laminate which is amazingly durable, machine washable and waterproof. Practical and stylish, the Spooneez comes in a variety of brilliant colors and fabrics. Each carrier has several individual compartments in which to slide your spoons and snacks. You simply fold, roll and secure the tie. When you clean up later you can wipe it down or toss it into the wash. But don't limit yourself to food, Spooneez is designed with versatility in mind. Since it is so simple to clean you can pack toiletries, markers or whatever else you may find commonly oozing in your bags. Try it out and get free shipping, just enter ZOEBFS at checkout.

Organic Plant Magic

As the weather begins to cool, many of us turn our efforts to our final outdoor projects. I have been busy preparing a winter garden, landscaping and prepping container plants for their return indoors. Just recently I found a fantastic product called Organic Plant Magic which is non toxic and chemical free.

This all purpose organic plant food is alive with beneficial micro-organisms and is safe for your family and pets, as well as, your community. Organic Plant Magic can be used on lawns, for landscaping, in gardens and containers. It is water soluble so you can spray it. Each application treats 5,000 square feet. You can also stir it into your potting soil or compost. Giving the roots wonderful nutrients to feed upon. Furthermore, it guards plants from pest and disease. I am so impressed with this family business and their commitment to social responsibility. A commitment thoughtfully incorporated right into their packaging. Yes, even the bag can be composted in your home in just a matter of weeks. I am looking forward to incorporating Organic Plant Magic into my own gardens. Find out more at

Eat Cleaner Wipes for Fruits and Vegetables

Growing up I knew the hands that grew the bulk of the vegetables and fruits we ate. My parents and grandparents carefully cleaned and soaked everything before we "put it up for the winter". However, things are very different for my own family. I rarely know the people who have produced our bounty. Thinking about all the pesticides, bacteria, wax or simply the number of hands that touch our food, I was grateful to discover an all natural food wash called eat cleaner.

Grow Green Industries produces a variety of cleaners that you can use for all of your foods including meats. But what I was most excited about was the biodegradable cloth that can be purchased in bulk or as individuals. The wipes are made of Kosher certified ingredients. You simply wipe the fruit or vegetable and its clean and ready to eat. I tried it out this week and tasted nothing but the apple I was sinking my teeth into. I will definitely be carrying these wipes with me and packing them with my husband and children as well. Get a 25% discount at with coupon code FOEO479291.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Shari Burrell, an active mother of three and a member of the Zoë b Organic team. This week I celebrate my first year with this wonderful company. I am proud to have the opportunity, not only to better the life of my family, but to offer other families healthy alternatives in today's market.

As a child, my brothers and I used to build all kinds of things from cardboard boxes; cars, houses, airplanes. Imagination was the limit. That childhood activity has taken an innovative twist with a new line of furniture developed by French Canadian designers Salome Strappazzon and Mikaël Mourgue. Their new eco-friendly Toy Toy chaise is made from recycled cardboard. These delightful chairs are decorated with environmentally friendly ink and require only the most simple assembly. Children will love working with you and the leftover cut outs from the single piece of cardboard can be used to design a variety of sculptures or toys.
