Ecomom Review and Giveaway
As an eco-friendly mom I like to find stores online that are strictly eco-friendly. I hate visiting a store and spending half my time searching for eco-friendly products or worrying whether the products I'm buying are truly eco-friendly. So, I'm glad I found EcoMom. EcoMom, an eco-friendly online store, has given me the opportunity to review two of the many green products found at the store: the Boon Grass Drying Rack and a bottle of Smartypants Gummy Multivitamins.
I really enjoyed testing out this Boon Grass Drying Rack. My baby is now a toddler but I was still able to place his toddler plates and sippy cups easily on the rack. I also have two school aged girls and a husband. So, I often found myself trying to pile on non-toddler dishes on to the rack as well. To my amazement the rack can hold a lot and in so many different ways. Just stick the dish between the blades of grass and this two-piece drying rack holds the dishes in so well. The dishes are practically dry a few minutes later.
I like that I can reuse the water too. I just empty out the water at the bottom of the rack into a bowl and then dump the water into my garden. I'm also delighted to know that the dish rack plastic is BpA-free, Phthalate free, and PVC free. It also looks great and cleans easily.
I only wish the dish rack was larger, large enough to hold 5 meal plates, 5 glasses, and utensils for five. In this larger version I would love to have a section of taller grass for the utensils and cooking spoons.
The Smartypants Gummy Multivitamins are tasty. They taste and look like gum drops. In fact, I had been adding 1 to each of my girls lunch boxes for the past couple of weeks and I just found out yesterday that they thought they were gum drops.
The vitamins have eco-friendly non-tuna sourced DHA Omega 3's, are gluten and casein free, contain no high fructose corn syrup, and our naturally flavored from natural sources. Also every time a customers buys a bottle of SmartyPants, a donation is made to Vitamin Angels.
I only wish they weren't so tasty. I was seriously tempted to snack on these vitamins. If I was tempted, than my kids would be tempted. I had to keep the vitamins high and hidden just to be safe.
