Dropps: Eco-Friendly Laundry Packets

A reality of life in our household is that the moment I finish the last load of laundry another full basket of dirty clothes magically appears. The whole process of doing laundry creates a lot of waste -- the bottles of detergent create a lot of waste and the amount of water used for just one load is incredible.

A new company has come up with an eco-friendly option. Dropps has created a new, super-concentrated, eco-friendly liquid laundry detergent that comes in convenient dissolvable "toss-and-go" packs. By creating a toss-and-go alternative Dropps seeks to offer an easy, everyday way for consumers to reduce their dependence on bottled water and plastic. Just toss a dropp into the laundry and go. There's no waste and the deterget is NPE- and phosphate-free.

dropps can be purchased at select Target, Wal-Mart, and Whole Foods stores.

PeaceLoveMom Thermals Celebrate Motherhood

During the winter, I live in long-sleeved thermals and jeans. It's like my mommy uniform. A hoodie gets tossed on and off during the day, I snuggle up in my thermal.

My absolute favorite is by PeaceLoveMom. Their collection is all about celebrating Motherhood and all that it means. Their thermals are constructed of ultra-comfy cotton in a waffle weave with messages like "Grateful Mom", "Lucky Mom", "Happy Mom", "Rock&Roll Mom" and "24 Hour Mom".

PeaceLoveMom was created by three proud mothers looking for a way to put their voice into moms fashion. A celebrity favorite too - Cindy Crawford is often photographed in their tees and thermals. She even showed off her collection on a recent episode of the Oprah Winfrey show!
