Here’s Why You Should Try Liquid Chalk Markers-Bonus Giveaway!

Don’t you hate writing with messy, dusty, chalk that gets all over your fingers?  I remember in college one professor hated to write with it, any time he absolutely had to, he would always say that he was risking getting cancer to write on the board.  He was talking about the chalk dust.  Anyway, with most chalk boards you don’t have many options besides using white or colored chalk. If you’re looking for an easier option, one that is colorful, neat, non-toxic, eco-friendly and FUN…I have the answer. Fun Chalk, Liquid Chalk Markers take chalk to a whole new level.

I recently test drove the 8 piece broad liquid chalk markers. There is a little trick to get them started.  First you push down on the tip to release any pressure, then you shake it vigorously and then depress the tip while holding it on a piece of paper until you see the color filling the tip and it flows.  After that, it is time for fun!

I used them on my black dry erase board and they worked great!

Cate & Levi, People Puppet Review & Giveaway!!!

My little ones love puppets, so when I was asked by Cate & Levi to review one of their new People Puppets, I was thrilled.  I chose the fireman and he arrived quickly.  He is a hand-made, one of a kind 12″ puppet made of sustainable, reclaimed wool.  Cate & Levi gets their reclaimed wool from discarded sweaters that would have been filling a landfill if not used. All their toys are made in Canada.  It just took me putting it on my hand to make giggles galore arise from my kids.  Soon they wanted a turn making the fireman talk, dance and sing.  Puppets are such a creative way for kids to express themselves and Cate & Levi have such a great selection of animal puppets as well.  If you are looking for some great quality puppets that your kids will just have a ball with, check out Cate & Levi.  The People Puppet Collection includes a fireman, pirate, nurse and a princess.  You can feel great about purchasing these eco-friendly puppets for your child.

Cate & Levi is sponsoring a giveaway on Mommy Ramblings.   One lucky blog reader will win a puppet of their choice.  Thanks Cate & Levi for the review puppet and for sponsoring this great giveaway on Mommy Ramblings!!!  Open to US and Canadian residents.

ellaWrap Review & Discount Code!!!

There is just so much to do during the holiday season.  Wrapping gifts is one thing almost all of us have on our lists.  We spend so much time wrapping presents and after the presents are opened we throw bags of it away.  It is very wasteful when you think about it. Recently, I was sent some ellaWraps to review.  With ellaWraps there is no tape, no cutting, no paper, no ribbons and no waste.  It is so easy to just put the gift in the ellaWrap and tie with the attached ribbon.  The ellaWrap can be reused again and again unlike wrapping paper.  Just one ellaWrap, passed along over the years, can preserve our natural resources, while also providing a way to preserve your memories – each ellaWrap comes with a gift journal to record the special memories from each gift-giving occasion.

With lots of great styles there are ellaWraps for every occasion.  ellaWraps come in different sizes and are very well made so they will be able to be used year after year.  I am placing ellaWrap in our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide in the section Products To Help You This Holiday Season.  I was able to put some children’s sunglasses and a stuffed toy in the bag and with a quick tie of the ribbon I was done.  The gift looked cute and festive and the best thing is that the wrap does not wind up in the trash.  If you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint, then take a look at the ellaWrap.

ellaWrap is giving Mommy Rambling’s readers an exclusive discount code of EW26 that will discount 10% off a buyer’s total order at www.ecowrap.com. The code is active until Friday, November 11th.

Bambo Nature Diapers Review and Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

Bambo Nature recently sent me a package of their Eco-friendly diapers and I was excited to try them out! I got the maxi size 4. They were a tad big on my 18lb, 8 month old, so the size 3 would have been a better fit for him.  Despite the bigger size, they still worked just fine! The size 4 fit very well on my 2-year-old, and worked great! When using disposable diapers, I always had a hard time finding one that would not leak through the night. Bambo Nature diapers stood up great as a nighttime diaper! As long as you change diapers in a reasonable amount of time, just like any other diaper, you shouldn’t have to worry about leaks! For daytime use they work just as good as any diaper, we usually never have a problem then. It is during the night that Bambo Nature excelled for me, having no leaks like we usually do. One cool feature they have, is blue indicator writing on the front that blurs when the diaper is wet, so you know when it is time to change.

In manufacturing, Abena, Bambo Nature’s manufacturer, is environmentally conscious by recycling and using energy saving machines. They don’t use any chemicals in their diapers, and have almost completely reduced all waste during the production process. Being that they have a much lower eco footprint than regular disposables, Bambo Nature diapers are a great alternative to my cloth diapering, when I am in town, or go on vacation. I really liked Bambo Nature diapers, they are well made, and do their job!

I am happy to tell you that Bambo Nature is sponsoring a give-away on Mommy Ramblings!!! Two lucky winners will each get a bag of diapers of their choice.  Thank you Bambo Nature for the review diapers and for sponsoring this fantastic give-away! Open to residents of the contiguous 48 US states.

Cangles’ Fashionably Green Eco-Friendly Jewelry Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

When I connected with Cangles a few weeks ago, there was no doubt who would pick out the items for review.  This jewelry made from recycled beverage cans was right up my daughter’s alley.  First, she loves that fact they are made with recycled cans, second, she loves to wear flower accessories in her hair and third, she loves earings.  So, she picked the Arizona Tea Large Flower Hair Clip and the Fresca Three Tier Flower Earrings to review.  She was home this weekend and I let her have them, she loved them.  They are trendy, cute and very green in more than one way.

Cangles’ fashionably green eco-friendly jewelry design and construction is based on the 3 Rs: Reusing, Renewing & Recycling.  Cangles makes affordable,  fashionable & fun eco-friendly jewelry by hand from recycled aluminum. Every aluminum can that is recycled saves an amount of energy equal to one-half a can of gasoline. Cangles hand tools all of their jewelry: hair clips, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. As part of our sustainable, Earth-friendly philosophy Cangles donates a portion of each sale to several eco-responsible charitable organizations.

Cangles makes bracelets, necklaces, earrings, hair accessories and military tribute/support jewelry.  Cangles takes care to eliminate any sharp edges, so you may wear their jewelry in total comfort.  It is lightweight yet durable. The cuff-style bracelets hold their shape yet allow for gentle squeezing at the ends for a snug fit.

.

So do you think this recycled jewelry is pretty cool?  Than you will be pleased to know that Cangles is sponsoring a give-away on Mommy Ramblings.  One lucky blog reader will win a $30 Gift Certificate for Cangles!!!  Thank you Cangles for the review jewelry and for sponsoring this awesome give-away!!!

Epicurean Cutting Board Review & Give-Away!!! {Give-Away Ended}

Epicurean Cutting Surfaces sent me one of their Gripper Series boards to review.  The silicone gripper corners keep your board steady and secure on smooth, damp countertops. The gripper corners are removable as well.   It is a nice feeling to know your board is secure when you are chopping and slicing.  I love that the board is dishwasher safe and does not harbor bacteria.

The cutting surface is knife friendly and you won’t have to worry about dulling your knives when you slice on them.  The cutting board is an eco-friendly product and is comprised of a mixed source of wood fibers and is certified by Smartwood to the Forest Stewardship Council standars.  Epicurean products are preferred and used by professional chefs for more than 50 years so you know they make a quality product that no well-equipped kitchen should be without.

Another nice feature of this cutting surface is that it is heat resistant up to 350 degrees so it can be used as a trivet.  This is a dual sided cutting board and is proudly made in the USA.

The Folks at Epicurean are so generous to sponsor a give-away on Mommy Ramblings.  One of our lucky blog readers will receive the very same cutting board.
