Join Me in the Tom’s of Maine Less Waste Challenge

Join Me in The Tom's of Maine Less Waste Challenge

Did you know that the average American family produces nearly 125 pounds of waste every week? That’s a lot of garbage! I think about the amount of trash we generate every Sunday evening as we roll an overflowing garbage can to the curb for pickup the following morning. Although our recycle bins are generally filled, I continue to be amazed each week by the amount of garbage our family of 5 continues to produce. It’s time to change that. Tom’s of Maine #LessWasteChallenge For 45 years, Tom’s of Maine has been taking its own #LessWasteChallenge by developing natural personal care products with a focus...

Better Life Loves Target and Here’s Why

Better Life Loves Target Groovy Green Livin

Thank you to Better Life for sponsoring this post Last week I had a few hours to kill while my son was at soccer practice. There was a Target nearby so I decided to run a few errands. While walking up and down the aisles at Target I was amazed by the number of organic and natural products displayed throughout the store. I was thrilled to see a brand that I’ve been using for many years prominently displayed on their shelves: Better Life! For a limited time Better Life Natural Cleaning Products are being featured in the seasonal section of over 800...

Is Aluminum Foil Recyclable? The Answer is Complicated

Is Aluminum Foil Recyclable? Groovy Green Livin

Aluminum foil made its way into our kitchen a few years ago, joining forces with other alternatives to plastic wrap. Plastic wrap has been around for generations, preserving leftovers and keeping food from becoming stale. Unfortunately plastic wrap is made from a form of plastic called low-density polyethylene (LDPE). Plastics that have been touted as safe and “BPA-free”, such as LDPE, might not be as safe as we once thought. We have no way of knowing if any plastic is safe without fully testing the chemicals used. Chemical additives have been found to leach from “safe” plastics into food and drinks. Plastic wrap also...

How to Make the Switch to Clean Energy With MyDomino (Giveaway: Nest Programmable Thermostat!)

How to Make the Switch to Clean Energy & Nest Giveaway! Groovy Green Livin

 This is a sponsored post created in collaboration with MyDomino. I did receive compensation. All opinions are my own. When you hear the phrase “clean energy” what do you think?  Clean energy is heat and electricity produced from renewable resources such as solar, wind and water. This form of energy generates little or no pollution or emissions when used. When our electricity comes from clean energy sources we avoid the carbon dioxide emissions that would have come from burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, or natural gas. What a simple way to help prevent climate change! Over the past few years we’ve been making...

Is BPA In Your Food Cans? New Report Says Yes!

Is BPA In Your Food Cans? New Report Says Yes!

There’s some bad news for those of us who thought BPA was a thing of the past. A new report released today tested nearly 200 food can linings for the toxic chemical, Bisphenol A (BPA) and found that two out of three cans tested have the chemical in the lining. The report took a look at cans of vegetables, fruits, soups, broth, gravy, milks and beans from Campbell’s, Del Monte, General Mills, Kroger, Albertsons and more. BPA is an endocrine-disrupting chemical that negatively impacts our hormonal systems. It can also contribute to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, type-2 diabetes, obesity, asthma and attention deficit...

Big Changes in GMO Labeling! What You Need to Know

Big Changes in GMO Labeling! What You Need to Know Groovy Green Livin

Many of us want GMO labeling and it’s finally happening! For years we’ve been fighting for something that seems so simple. We want to know what’s in our food. We’ve been asking for GMO labeling and transparency and after years of effort food industry giants now have no choice but to comply. A few weeks ago the Senate failed to pass a bill that would prevent states from requiring GMO labeling. This was a huge victory for consumers and a disappointment for many organizations who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to prevent  labeling. This defeat also gave a green light to the...
