Have you read anything about
Eco-friendly clothing for babies lately? Organic cotton, organic wool,

families who choose to use natural clothing for my baby.
can set the mood for many occasions. Many people identify candles with
setting a romantic mood, or creating aromas, or blowing them out on your
birthday, all of which are fairly legitimate reasons to break out the
candles, but finding the right housing for your candle can set a mood
all on its own.
The choices are generally
pillar candles, taper candles and then you have the specialty candle,
tea light candles or maybe even a floating candle. Many will head for
the drawer of candles when a special occasion arises, and then begin the
search for a candle holder, either coming up short or pulling out mom’s
overly dramatic crystal candle holders from 1980. Obviously, this just

Once spring has arrived, I like many people, prepare for my annual “spring cleaning”, refreshing my home for the upcoming months. Every year, I wash everything that has developed into one large moth ball, clean closets, cabinets and bathrooms. And like every year before, I realize how disorganized I am, and how much I want to give my home a fresh new look.

and contribute to air pollution indoors.....
I never used to think of my shower curtain as a health and environmental problem until I learned some alarming information about PVC and VOCs. My shower curtain was toxic! What made is so toxic? Well let’s start at the beginning. Remember that smell when you opened the brand new plastic shower curtain or liner? It is the same smell that immediately brings back memories of blowing up beach balls and life rafts for the pool. Well, what you smell is polyvinyl chloride plastic otherwise known as PVC. PVC—the same stuff that is used for plumbing—emits harmful chemicals called volatile organic chemicals or VOCs. But it’s middle name is organic! That’s healthy right? Wrong.
