Hour Without Power ~ Earth Hour

Earth Hour

What will you be doing from 8:30-9:30pm Saturday night (March 24th, 2018)? Did you know that it is officially Earth Hour?   It’s time to celebrate our beautiful planet! This year, I’m excited to be adding a couple of tools to our home that will help us dim the lights for Earth Hour: an Amazon Echo Plus and a wireless controllable Philips Hue Light Bulb. I know what you might be thinking…why would you need a wireless controllable light bulb? What if you’re giving your little one a bath and you forgot to turn off the light in another room? … Continue reading

60 Day Greener Downtime Challenge + FREE Trial!

Greener Downtime Challanege

Yes! You read that right – but I bet you are asking yourself “what downtime”? Well, if you are like me, you struggle to find downtime, but I have found a way to sneak it into my busy life! So, picture this…….one day after school, the kids come home, have their typical snack and then everyone gets ready for their various activities. My son does Karate and my daughter is in musical theatre. We scheduled them so that I wasn’t going to be criss-crossing town on the same day for both children, BUT every once in a while things work … Continue reading

Say NO to Diaper Cakes and Choose Wonderwear Cloth Diaper Service Instead (Giveaway)

Wonderwear Cloth Diaper Service GTA

Baby Shower diaper cakes are adorable and all, but they are made with disposable diapers that sometimes don’t even get used! Instead of giving someone a cake made out of disposable diapers, I highly recommend you consider gifting a cloth diaper service instead. I remember back when my kids were in diapers, it seemed like the only choices were disposable diapers, cloth diapers that you had to launder yourself (a very daunting concept), or a very costly cloth diaper service (which simply wasn’t an option for someone on mat leave). Now, times have changed and there are options that are … Continue reading

5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

Back in September, I made the commitment to myself and my family that we would start to live greener lives. In our home, we celebrate Earth Day every day! Our earth is SO important! What does that look like in our home? We make a conscious effort to do what we can to limit the number of chemicals and toxins that come into our homes by using Norwex microfibre cloths as much as possible along with other chemical free cleaning and personal care products. We have significantly decreased our use of paper towels by using cloths and water to do … Continue reading

Green Living Show

Since having children, I have gradually become more and more interested in learning how I can live a “greener” life. I have finally figured out how to clean my home in a very green a way with just a cloth and water, but there are so many other areas in our lives that we can be focussing on in order to be more earth friendly and to help our overall health.

A #Norwex Wedding Wish List from a Friend

A few years ago now, I met Mandy through my blog. She introduced me to Norwex Natural cleaning products and since then not only have I fallen in love with them, but so have many of my friends! One of my dear friends is getting married this spring and I suggested to her that she make a Norwex Wishlist because she is one of the people who I have already convinced to love Norwex, not that it takes that much convincing! I first started off my Norwex experience with the Norwex Starter Kit which includes an Enviro Cloth, a Polish … Continue reading
