Funky Green Machine $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway!

Funky Green Machine
is a really fun shopping site created by Carl and Rhana Kennedy, which promotes “green” and eco-friendly products that are also “Uncommon Cool” as their slogan suggests. I was pleased to see that they carry Kleen Kanteen, which is a stainless steel, reusable bottle–a great, BPA-free alternative to plastic water bottles. The 18 ounce Kleen Kanteen retails for $16.45 on their website. WELL worth the savings on your wallet, your health and the environment. They fit right into the cup holders in my car, too, which is a plus!Now I don’t know about you, but I LOVE bags and totes. I collect bags and totes!

Funky Green Machine’s “Peeking Sal” Organic Cotton, Fair Trade Tote is adorable and I want one! It’s unique and at 18″x13″, this tote would hold a LOT of library books…or would look really cool while I’m riding this AWESOME Strida 5.0 Eco-Friendly, folding bicycle, which folds up for easy storage! It weighs only 22 lbs with a lightweight aluminum frame and is available in Silver, Black, Red, Yellow White and Neon Green.

Funky Green Machine also has a full offering of skin care products for kids, moms and dads. I have my eye on this really YUMMY looking Mojito Mama Sugar Scrub!

And really now…how COOL are these organic baby/kids’ tees?

These are just a FEW of the things (everything on their site) that I’ve added to my wish list from Funky Green Machine.

EarthLust Stainless Steel Bottles

When you read about the health concerns regarding water bottled in plastic, such as this article from the San Francisco Chronicle or this one from that talks about the possibility of Connecticut, California, Oregon, Hawaii and several other states banning the sale of plastic baby bottles, food containers and cups containing BPA, you know why more and more moms (and everyone else) are choosing aluminum or stainless steel bottles.  I personally choose stainless steel over aluminum because aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease and takes considerably more energy and resources to mine.  
I much prefer using reusable bottles to disposable, but then it becomes an accessory and like any accessory, you want it to stand out; to reflect your personality or say something about you. Right? I cannot be alone there.  
Anyway, I have used many brands of reusable bottles over the years, but my new favorite reusable bottles are by West Coast-based EarthLust. Their bottles are made of food grade stainless steel and their caps are made of BPA-free polypropolene.  
They make the bottles from their own custom mold and they create a lot of the art themselves.  I personally sport the 20 oz. bottle show above, which is the Limited Edition Parsley design
and since my daughter is a huge owl freak, I bought her the one shown below.  We have both received countless compliments and inquiries about our bottles because they are just so cool looking!  Be a trend setter and head on over to EarthLust and choose from well over a dozen different unique designs.
