Blue Orange Games

Here is a great local toy company with a commitment to quality. So, if you’ve been searching for a fun way to celebrate Earth Day, check out Blue Orange Games! They produce ONLY high-quality, long-lasting, eco-friendly games and they give back with a tree planting program.

They use durable materials such as non-toxic coatings; non-petroleum based plastic, recycled cardboard and wood and tin. After all, your kids will be chewing on these games, or maybe the puppy might take a nibble too!

And when they are sent to you, the games are self-contained, which decreases the amount of packaging.

On average, 35 games are created out of one tree; therefore Blue Orange Games is committed to replanting two trees for every one tree used in game construction.

FOR  Earth Day, have fun and play Gobblet, a game from the wooden collection or Trigger, one of their newest games.

If you lose a piece, that happens alot in our family, you’ll be glad to know that replacement parts are available. That is a smart idea!
Thanks Blue Orange Games,  your games are beautiful and well made!

Homemade Cleaners, Recipe Book!

Toxic chemicals are found in almost all commercial cleaners—the very products you buy to make your home hygienic and healthy!

Introducing “Homemade Cleaners,” a new book featuring recipes, tips and tricks that will make your home sparkle and remain germ-free—without the dangerous toxins.

“Homemade Cleaners” features over 150 recipes that are all toxin-free, easy, affordable, highly-effective, and kid-friendly. Replace your current all-purpose cleaner with a 1:1 vinegar-and-water solution; for a heavy-duty glass cleaner, mix castile soap with 1 quart water; or for a granite counter cleaner, combine vodka, water, a drop of dish soap and essential oils. Then, just spray and clean!

You don’t have to fill up your cupboards with toxic cleaning supplies! Really! And after a trip to the ER when I got toilet cleaner in my eye, I can testify…. YOU want to use natural cleaners. They are so much better. And then you won’t have to see your 5 year old sitting next to you on a gurney, wondering IF your eye will fall out…… and holding your hand. I won’t even mention what they did to me… it was gruesome but worth saving my sight. Besides avoiding the occasional mishap, this stuff WORKS. AND it smells better (usually).
