Drinking Straws

This article by Long Beach Lodge in Tofino, BC comes at the right time for us as our boys love to drink out of straws and we were going through so many!  Such a negative impact on the environment including wildlife.

Not worth it.  Hence why we purchased these stainless steel drinking straws with cleaning brush that we can re-use over and over again!

Routine

I have tried many natural deodorants in attempts to stay away from chemicals especially with a family history of breast cancer. I saw this Calgary based company on tv (they appeared on an episode of Shark Tank) and thought I would give it a try. The bonus here is that they have many different kinds to choose from so it is more individualized and you can order samples to try out before you commit to your favourite !  They also have one for men.

You apply it with your hands (might be weird to some if you are used to traditional deodorant) but no big deal to me, and it works!! It actually works.

Snack Bags

If you’re using a ton of zip loc baggies or seran wrap for your kids lunches or snacks like I was, take a peek at these instead!  Washable, reusable and adorable and so much better for the environment, these Colibri Reusable Snack Bags are perfect.  They come in small and larger sizes and adult patterns too  😉  I will slowly be phasing these in and saying bye bye to ziploc.

Isn’t Mr. Fox just so cute?!
