Earth Day is celebrated on April 22, but as savvy moms, we are looking to lighten our footprint every day. Little changes can make a big difference as Max Lucado says, “No one can do everything, but everyone can do something”, we agree.

As a special nod to Mother Earth, here are some of our fav green products.

Lifefactory:  I have long been a fan of Lifefactory for its plastic-free, glass water beverage bottles. The silicone sleeves protect the glass and offer the perfect (and cool looking!) grip. Lifefactory just launched its glass storage collection with silicone protection.  The glass storage is freezer, dishwasher, oven and microwave safe. Most importantly? It’s food safe!

We received baby J’s Lifefactory bottle a few weeks ago, and lemme tell ya, he won’t put it down. Hands down, one of the best ways to transition from bottle to cup. We tried the standard sippy cup with inserts and half of them either leaked exploded in the diaper bag or left several oz. at the bottom which were always wasted. Baby J uses this sippy cup every day and it’s been awesome-super easy to clean and I don’t have to worry about it spilling when we take it to go. Love knowing it’s a safe, clean material (glass) but sturdy because of its silicone cover.

Want one of your own? Head on over to our Facebook page and give us a like, then check out Lifefactory’s site and comment here on the blog with your favorite infant, 9 oz, or 12 oz bottle-one like ours, with a straw or one for yourself with a lid.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day friends! You might remember me posting about my favourite yoga items back when I did my last 30 day challenge here and I thought it would be fun to take a look at which items I’m still using and which new items I’m currently obsessed with. So, here we go!

3. I mentioned Lifefactory in my last post and I still choose this bottle over the many I have stashed away in my cupboard. The silicone sleeve offers a non-slip grip that is essential for my sweaty yoga hands and the glass bottle is made up of natural ingredients and provides a refreshing clean taste, even after dishwasher use.

I’m a bit of a water bottle enthusiast. Ask anyone in my family, and they’ll tell you we have way too many BPA-free plastic and stainless steel bottles crammed into our cupboards. Not to mention all the flip caps, twist tops, straw lids…you get the idea. Frankly, I love my stainless steel, so I was a bit skeptical trying out Life Factory’s glass line...

The food storage line is what intrigued me right of the bat about Life Factory. We road trip frequently, and almost always bring our own food with us. It’s healthier, cheaper, and allows us more freedom when we’re not ‘tied’ to fast food joints on interstates en route. I tried out one of each of Life Factory’s food storage containers, available in 1 cup, 2 cup and 4 cup. My verdict: every family needs at least one of each, possibly two...

The real test was the Life Factory bottle, which comes in 9, 12, 16, and 22 ounce sizes. Would it replace my precious stainless steel? Yes and no. At home, and while on the road, I’ve been grabbing my Life Factory 22 ounce bottle more often than not. But just like with the containers, for hikes and more mobile activities, I need something lighter...
