If I keep finding such great stuff, this list could get very long!
Eco-Emi: Once a month for $15, Eco-Emi wraps up a bunch of eco-friendly products and sends them right to your house. This is a great way to start “going green”. Lots of samples of really great products- from food to makeup and even socks! The owner, Christine, is super nice! I highly recommend you check this out and if you do- tell Christine I sent you!
Wildly Organic: If you are in WA on the Kitsap Peninsula you should definitely check out this company. Delicious, fresh(and some local) organic produce that they deliver right to your front door!
Bath and Body
Bubble and Bee Organic: My first love when it comes to organic products! I love everything they make. Lip balm, shower gel, soaps, shampoo and my favorite- Raspberry Vanilla Body Butta! They also make great deodorants that come with a guarantee- if the first one you buy doesn’t work for you, they will help you find one that does. Stephanie, owner of B&B is friendly and very knowledgeable, I’m always asking her for info on ingredients and she gives me answers I can understand.
Natural Joy Beauty: Natural and organic cosmetics, face, hair, bath and body care. The owner, Joy, does all the research and finds great products that you can feel good about putting on your skin. All the ingredients are listed on the site and you can buy samples so you don’t get stuck with a bunch of stuff that you don’t like. This is where I buy Real Purity mascara, the only kind I’ve been able to wear in years without irritation. Free samples sent with every order, very cool!
Food and Beverage
DRY Soda Co.: Not your average carbonated beverage! Lightly sweetened, no added colors and only four ingredients. Super fun flavors like lemongrass, lavender, vanilla bean and more. All 70 calories or less per bottle. When I am craving a soda-this is what I want!
The Whistling Kettle: I stop by this cute little tea shop every time I am in Ballston Spa, NY(my home town). Everyone is so friendly, the atmosphere is fun, I love the tea and the lobster bisque is DE-licious! You can order from them online and they have samples you can buy. My favorite tea is Earl Grey Cream- so good!
Harney and Sons Fine Teas: Yes, another tea shop- can you tell I like tea? I haven’t been to their physical address, but I have ordered from them online. Great selection of tea and you can buy samples so you don’t end up with a cupboard full of tea you don’t like.
The Green Element: Clothing for the conscious consumer. They have 100% organic t-shirts, hoodies, hats and even undies called “eco booty”. I have 2 of their t-shirts and I love them. They are so soft and comfortable.
Mountain Rose Herbs: Organic herbs, salts, teas, and for those of you who want to try making your own bath and beauty products, they have a wonderful selection of essential oils, carrier oils, butters, waxes, clays and more! They even have containers for storing all your fabulous creations. I am very happy with the quality of these products and will be ordering more supplies soon. Homemade beauty products make great gifts!!
