Pamper your favorite mama, organically

If you counted the number of times my reviews have stated that moms love being pampered… well, it might start to sound like a cry for help. As we all know, motherhood is a 24-7 job, and when we finally get some down time, we deserve the best–in bath products and in chocolate. With that in mind, here’s a delicious Mother’s Day Gift Set from one of our favorite organic bath companies that should make mom feel outrageously special.  [Don’t miss a BIG exclusive giveaway after the jump!] CMP favorite Zoe Organics has teamed up with Moksa Organics to...

You got organic peanut butter in my chocolate!

Well, wasn’t I delighted to walk into my local bodega and see a brand new treat from Justin’s Organic Peanut Butter staring back at me from the counter. Okay, my thighs weren’t delighted, but I sure was. Move over Reese’s: I love you but I’m happy to spend a little more to trade up to Justin’s Organic Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I had to do a taste test between the milk chocolate and dark chocolate versions (I know, cry for me) and it’s a toss-up. The milk chocolate has that more familiar American candy bar flavor, but zomg the dark...

Life’s an organic bowl of cherries

My girls have this ridiculous obsession with lip balm. Considering how it’s actually on their lips (and thus, entering their digestive system, let’s be honest) I tend to be more conscientious about lip balm ingredients than even things like kids’ nail polishes. The brand new line of organic kids’ lip balms from eco-beauty fave Shelissa Organics is handcrafted in the US from organic and local plants, including sunflower oil, beeswax, coconut oil, and Vitamin E oil. No petroleum, no icky chemicals, no animal testing. It gets a big thumbs up from my kids–and the EWG cosmetics database. They feel pretty slick and rich going...

Organic sachets bring the scent of spring…well, anywhere.

I have a total thing for sachets. It’s easy to find scary-looking ones (hello, airport giftshops!), but when I find pretty ones that smell wonderful, I tend to stock up. Gardenmis on Etsy is like awesome sachet central. I really love the French country sachets which are the perfect neutral, modern look to fit in any decor–not just French country. But if you look around the shop, you’ll find a lot of options from organic rose petal sachets with Emily Dickinson quotes meant to be hung over a doorknob; gorgeous purple sachets of course, filled with a lavender blend;...

Scooter sweetness in a zippy retro-style bib

Babies drool: that’s a fact. I tried to rock the sans bib look for my brood and that option didn’t quite pan out. It turns out that wet necks lead to rashes, not rockstars. My suggestion? Embrace the right bib, and your little one will scoot in style. Finn and Emma’s Scooter Bib has a retro scooter and a mod color combo (orange and gray! divine!) that go perfectly together. The best part? Soft organic cotton and a nifty wooden snap. And a matching blanket, if you want a really awesome baby gift.   I also super love that...

Safe and sunny spring cleaning round-up

Spring sunshine and open windows are wonderful…until we suddenly see the dirt and cobwebs that have been comfortably lurking in corners all winter. Here are some of our favorite ways to handle spring cleaning safely, especially when we all know babies and kids will be touching pretty much everything.   Our newest favorite counter cleaner is all natural and so safe that you can lick it–which I did. There’s a lot to like about iGozen, from its many uses around the house to the fact that it comes in adorable little powder packets in a handy storage box that...

Healthy, organic foods for babies that are taking over the world (in a good way)

Healthy, organic natural foods are hardly a tough sell these days. More and more parents are paying attention to the importance of eating clean and healthy. I feel very good knowing that brands like longtime CMP favorite, Happy Family, are out, there spreading the word on the importance of healthy and organic eating,  and now making it more easily available–something that hasn’t always been the case. The newest in the ever-growing line of products for babies and toddlers feature really interesting combinations of organic nutrient-packed superfoods, like the new Blueberry and Purple Carrot Happy Puffs. There are also Homestyle...

Winter Water Factory kids and baby clothes: one more reason to look forward to spring

While we’re still walking around our neighborhood, keeping our eyes out for surprise ice slicks and avoiding the yellow snow, spring is officially only one month away. Whoo! As the gorgeous new spring/summer styles for kids start flooding the racks, there’s so much to love, like the new baby and children’s clothes from CMP fave Winter Water Factory. I love that they’re not phasing out beloved patterns and styles from last year–these are the items that never really go out of style for kids–but they’re adding to it with fresh onesie designs, and more gorgeous geometric prints.   The...

Sustainable suds that do good (and smell great)

This soap looks gorgeous, smells amazing, and saves lives while helping the environment. Meaning we suddenly need to wash our hands. A lot. We love soaps that do good in the world, and the brand Hand in Hand has a lot to offer. The brainchild of a husband-wife team who wanted to found a business based on sustainable giving, Hand in Hand goes the extra mile to improve the world on two fronts: for every bar purchased, they provide one bar of soap to a child in Haiti and save 50 square feet of rain forest. But we know...

The household cleaner so safe that I licked it

If you’re worried about scary chemicals around the house, you’re going to love the new organic cleaner so safe that you can use it to wash fruit, shine the counter, or wipe out your dog’s ears. Or, yes, even lick it. And I know, because I totally licked it. For the record, it had no taste, which is kind of crazy considering the smell of most of my cleaning products. That says something right there. iGozen is an organic household cleaner made from 100% natural calcium particles straight from the ocean. It arrives in tidy packets all in a...
