ExtraFresh

Standard

Who would like to be 1 of 4 lucky winners to be sent a 6 pack carton of ExtraFresh as part of our Vegan & Eco-Friendly Giveaway?

ExtraFresh
We have only recently come across ExtraFresh, but we love the idea. We were given a single pack to try which was delivered to us with a range of other goodies from EcoDeals.

“Designed and made in NZ, especially for domestic fridges, ExtraFresh keeps fruit and vegetables fresher for longer, decreasing spoilage and ensuring that you enjoy the best possible eating experience.” ~ExtraFresh

To read more about how these packs work, check out the info section on their website. In short, these packs help reduce ethylene which you trap by putting all of your fruits and vegetables into a drawer. Without these packs, ripening occurs much more quickly which can lead to more wasted food.

I know that I do not like wasting food, and although we do compost what we do not eat, I do not like the idea of wasted money and food. Whether you put a lot of time and effort into growing your own fruit and vegetables or consider the environmental impact and labour from food production to supply in your local supermarket, there should be no desire to waste food and a lot more concern with the amount that ends up in landfill. The amount of wasted food is ridiculous in my opinion, and I am all for a product that can help preserve produce to stay fresher for longer. If you are buying produce from the supermarket, these will also allow you to buy a variety of produce without worrying about it not lasting. This will be better for a healthier lifestyle or save extra trips to the store which will save you time and money as well as saving you from contributing to the environmental impact due to more travel.

For those with one vegetable drawer, the ExtraFresh 6 pack carton will give you freshness for the entire year, or 6 months for a two drawer fridge.

Another way to involve the community in supporting sustainability is to fundraise with ExtraFresh. Whether schools or sport clubs want to be involved, this is a great way to involve the younger generation in protecting our environment and promoting healthy lifestyles.

Although ExtraFresh is quite new to us, I absolutely love the concept and the positive impact within the environment, our health, and the community.

Is there an ExtraFresh pack in your fridge?

Enter for your chance to have fresher produce all year long.

BeBops Nappies & Amber

Standard

Would you like to be sent a OSFA BeBops nappy and amber necklace as part of our Vegan & Eco-Friendly Giveaway?
Cloth Nappy
These are amazing pocket nappies that have worked really well for us. Here are some previous photos of Zaedyn wearing his BeBops nappy for the first time. Check out the post for more details. Basically, the combination of the microfibre and bamboo fleece seem to be a perfect combination. Plus, snaps or domes work much better for us than velcro. Zaedyn would never have a nappy on if we used velcro!

Cloth nappies save disposables from ending up in landfill, are super cute, and they save you lots of money. We use them full-time, and I cannot imagine it any other way. If you need more convincing, check out my Cloth Nappy tab, Pinterest board, and Cloth Nappy Week.

As part of Cloth Nappy Week, we were sent a new BeBops nappy to try. As we have received a few things for baby lately, Zaedyn seems to think that everything coming in the post is for baby. Zaedyn was so excited to see the nappy and tell me that it was for baby!

We have also recently purchased a new amber necklace for my sister’s baby that is due to arrive in July, and our little bub due to arrive at the end of September or beginning of October. The healing green is not a colour you often come across, and I loved it as soon as I saw it.

Zaedyn has worn his amber necklace since he was a few months old, and they have been amazing. We have only used amber beads and Chamomilla for teething. The healing baltic amber is a perfect natural alternative for your little one, and they are not only helpful for teething. If you or your child suffers from eczema, you may find that amber will reduce your symptoms. Here are a few other ways they might be able to help you or your baby so be sure to check out the current stock at BeBops along with the new stock of teething jewelry.

There is also a competition open which will be drawn when there is 4,000 likes. Not long to go now at 3,939! Tash posts super yummy vegan recipes as well which always makes me hungry.

If you have been following along with Cloth Nappy Week, there were BeBops nappies being hidden around the country. It was awesome to follow along and be a part of it, and it is amazing to see all of the cloth nappy love which wouldn’t be possible without all of the sponsors. There was a huge nappy sale at 50% off so you will find that many of the new prints are out of stock, but there will be more to come :).

Make sure to enter for your chance to win a gorgeous BeBops cloth nappy and amber necklace.

Charlie Banana Swimmer Giveaway *CLOSED*

Standard
Giveaway

Charlie Banana Swim Nappy Size Small, 5-7kg, colour of your choice

If you win, which colour would you choose?

Check out the Giveaways tab on Facebook for more information on how to enter, & make sure to comment below with your favourite colour. It would be awesome if you could also share with others that might be interested.

Why do we love Charlie Banana Swimmers?

They are so absorbent unlike most swim nappies because they are a 2-in-1 swim diaper and training paints. The lining is 100% organically grown cotton with a waterproof outer layer. Besides wasting money on disposable swim nappies that will end up in landfill, Zaedyn gets to wear a stylish swim nappy that is eco-friendly, does not contain chemicals, and it is absorbent without becoming bulky.

We want to share some cloth love with you so please enter for your chance to win one of these super cute reusable swim nappies.

This is an amazing product that I do not know what we would do without. We love the beach, and we are so excited for summer! See Zaedyn’s one in use below…
