A non-toxic Valentine’s Day?

I haven’t really thought about a Valentine’s Day present for Tim this year because we are going to be in London! So when I saw this list (seems like the week for lists!) about how to have a non-toxic Valentine’s Day it made me laugh! Love the idea of not giving your loved one something that’s bad for them and thought you might too so wanted to share – from Healthy Child Healthy World – for your reading pleasure. Happy romance my friends!

Get Clean and Green

What are you planning to give as holiday gifts this season? Someone asked me if they could give Shaklee products as gifts. We had been talking about the Get Clean kit and pack as the woman I was talking too wants to turn over the cleaning products in her house and was going to purchase the products. She started talking out loud about the fact that her sister is also interested in non-toxic products and she has a few close friends who are also interested…all of a sudden she realized instead of spending money on a bunch of random stuff she’s going to get everyone kits! I thought this was so cool and what an amazing present – I’d love one for sure 🙂
