I always seem to be trying out some new green/organic/sustainable/herbal product every week. This week, I've decided to review Feline Pine (I've recently gotten a kitteh!)
I purchased the Feline Pine Clumping litter (there's also a nugget, non-clumping version). So far this product works really well. The pine scent works wonderfully to neutralize any kitty poop or pee odor. There's only one small problem: it spreads over the floor like crazy. As soon as kitty gets out of her box - splash! Kitty litter all over the floor! Oh well, it's not a huge problem, I just have to clean up often. But I don't think I'll be getting this particular litter next kitty litter purchase!
I always seem to be trying out some new green/organic/sustainable/herbal product every week. This week, I've decided to review Zand's Lozenges (the beau & I have been sick a lot lately).
I love, love, love these lozenges. They are sweetened with brown rice syrup only and made of lots of yummy, healthy herbs and spices. We try to buy these whenever we're having a case of the sore throat. Zand's also makes lots of other herbal concoctions to help the ailing body. Try them out. I love that they're made with brown rice syrup instead of high fructose corn syrup, which isn't good for the body at all.
There are so many people out there that love the same things as we, Lu-n-Am, do. And I am loving reading fellow green-living pursuer Pure Green Design's blog. She writes about daily musings, beautiful, sustainable design, DIY projects, living a eco-friendly life, and opening and running her own eco living store, called Sustain. I think she just may be my inspiration/guide to opening my own eco-friendly store. If she can open her own store at the age of 27 then can't I do it, too, in 2 1/2 years? :)
This week's featured Green Organization is the Western North Carolina Alliance (WNCA). I was invited by a friend who volunteers there to go to a "food & presentation" event presented by the alliance last week, and I found the presentation to be very informative and the food delicious.
WNCA is a grassroots environmental organization that "empowers citizens to be advocates for livable communities and the natural environment of Western North Carolina." Their three main goals are "leading citizen advocacy on growth management; involving citizens in public lands protection; and protecting the region’s water supply."
I'm not sure if we've posted this before, but I was so excited about this purchase so I had to write about it! I just bought two Preserve Toothbrushes at Greenlife. If you haven't heard of them before, these toothbrushes are 100% made from recycled #5 plastics. One hundred percent! Exciting and awesome, no? Yes! Check them out, they really don't cost any more than regular name brand toothbrushes.
