Wild, Sustainably caught, Alaskan seafood delivered to your door!

Facebook advertising got me again. But this time, I’m realllllllly happy I checked the ad out. It’s the Wild Alaskan Seafood Company. Upon Googling it, I see there are numerous companies along the same lines. This is the only 1 I have experience with. And being I’m very happy with it, I don’t feel the need to try others. Living in Wisco, we are surrounded by water. But honestly, I won’t eat anything out of the MS River. And fish out of Lake Superior or Lake Michigan is rarely seen in this part of the state (SW corner). My Hubby catches trout from local streams during the times of year that is happening, but we usually eat those immediately, and there are catch limits, etc. I have to drive an hour+ to get to a store that has any decent fish or seafood. Of course, it’s not cheap, and had to go through quite a journey to get to WI from wherever it came from. We really love seafood, and want to make it a more regular part of our diet. And now we are able to!

I can’t recommend the Wild Alaskan Company highly enough, for awesome fish/seafood delivered to your door! For our 1st order we got a sample pack of 12 filets (you can also get 24). It included Coho (4) & Sockeye(2) Salmon, Halibut (2) & Cod (4). They are 6oz filets, which honestly I feel is the perfect size! From there, they offer add-ons. I chose a 6pk of Sablefish + a pack of Prawns. Honestly, the Sablefish isn’t my favorite. Mainly, it’s a texture thing. I’ve tried it twice now and it’s just a bit soft for my liking. I really like a firmer, flakier fish. But that’s another reason I love this opportunity. I LOVE trying new things, have never seen Sablefish in Wisco in my life, and now I know I don’t love it. However, I learned that Wild Pacific Halibut honestly might be my favorite fish of all-time. White, flaky, absolutely delicious in 3 minutes per side. I enjoyed it with some sauteed broccoli + rice, the whole meal took minutes (rice was leftovers). I seriously, seriously love it and cannot wait for the next order, I will definitely be adding on more of that (there are many options for add-ons to your base box). The Prawns were very good, and I used the shells to make stock, which I turned into a seafood chowder. It was REALLY good!

There are some base boxes (like a 12 or 24 pack of this & that), and a bunch of add-on options. Also, their website is full of recipes & detailed info on each fish, the areas it is caught in, tips for cooking, all sorts of good info!! You can cancel at any time of course.

From their website:

What’s in the Box?

Here’s a pic of my 1st order. This all came to $200. Not cheap, no. It averages out to about $10 per serving. I always remind myself that if we were ordering the same serving in a restaurant it would be 2-3x the price. If you go with just the base 12 assortment, it comes to $10.99/portion. If you go with the base 24 assortment, it is $9.99/portion, and then you can add-on from there, if you choose to. I really, really am enjoying being able to reach into my freezer and pull out some seafood:

Comments from others in my group, when I reached out to ask if anyone else had tried them:

Nadine: “They’re a great company. Family owned & operated and the quality is great. I highly recommend. Especially if you eat seafood often.”

Kelly said: “We gifted this to my mom for her birthday. She was thrilled and spoke highly of it!”

From Anne, who ordered at the same time I did: “We’ve had two pieces of white fish, and 2 pieces of salmon. Very tasty! I like the portion sizes, too. Hubby has a hearty appetite and he finds the pieces large enough. For me, it was almost more than I could eat.”

Right now I have delivery set to every 2 months, but you can modify what you’re getting and/or change frequency. I ordered on a Monday, and had it by the end of that week. Once I got a ship notification, I had the order delivered the following day! Also, a fun bonus is it comes packed in dry ice. Which can lead to fun projects and experiments with kiddos 🙂

The random Fb ad I stumbled upon when I learned about them included a $15 off 1st order coupon. Once you order, you get a coupon for $25 off to share with others. So if you’d like to try it, use this & get $25 off your 1st order of any amount. Then you will get a coupon code to share with your friends/family too. And you get $25 of future orders if they use it!

Toothpaste deal alert!

Toothpaste review and D E A L alert! Review: “I really am loving it and I would like to purchase a few more jars. I don’t want to be without it…best toothpaste ever!” She tried the cherry/vanilla which happens to be my favorite too! For a limited time, I’m going to offer this: instead of $9/jar + shipping, which ranges from $4/jar to $8 if you fill the flat rate envelope, I’m offering $10/jar straight up, shipping on me. I want to see how that works out. So, if you’d like to stock up or try it for the 1st time, please let me know ASAP. I’ll whip up a fresh batch between our Easter shenanigans this weekend. Details in the comments below (recipe, flavor options, etc). While supplies last, I know I’m low on some flavor oils, and don’t have a whole lotta jars on hand either. https://ecofriendlymamausa.com/recipes/eco-friendly-usa-homemade-toothpaste/

It’s my 9 year blogiversary today!

Wow! 9 years. 9 years ago today I decided to launch my own page on Facebook. I thought that I might as well start cataloging the info and resources I was finding along my mission to find the best & safest products on the market, that were also made in the USA whenever possible. If you’re newish to my journey, here’s an article from way back in 2013 that discusses what launched me on this path, my interview with American Made Insider.

What I really want to say today is what a great joy it has been to connect with so many of you over the years. Some of us go WAY back. My Son was 1 when I started my site, meaning he’s going to be 10 years old next month (say what!?). When I first began sharing my research findings with the online world I made a point to keep my personal life out of my posts. I desired to stay anonymous, and also not to have my kids childhoods be made public. But over time I could feel small connections being made with the conversations that were taking place daily in my group. As time went on, I learned more and more about your family, and felt safe and happy to share about my growing family too. The result of this is that we’ve truly grown into a wonderful community. I have actually met a few people from the group in real life, which is an INCREDIBLE experience. And I yearn for a lot more of that. But the fact remains, most of us will never meet. But it doesn’t diminish that I feel like we’re friends. I’ve asked for support over the past few years, both for my father, my friend with her struggling orchard, and many of you have stepped up big. When I posted yesterday about a Mama in the group whose 3 year old daughter is undergoing chemo for a rare type of cancer, several donated immediately. Stranger to stranger. That is something I will never take for granted. I firmly believe that human connection is more important than ever, and do know that feeling can be alive & well even in an online community.

I whole-heartedly started my blogging journey altruistically, wanting to connect with others who shared similar values. And I’m so proud of the path it has taken me down these past 9 years. And I’m eager to continue to follow this path and see what doors open next. As I get burned out and turn my back in one area, a door opens with new, exciting possibilities to pursue. And I will never, ever get tired of discovering new made in the USA products and companies. Each time I learn about something new (to me) my heart literally feels like it skips a beat.

So, thank YOU for being a part of my community. Thank YOU for continuing to vote with your dollars and considering the impact your purchases have on our communities, our families, our planet. Here’s to many more blogiversary posts in my future 🙂

Breaking the Amazon Cycle of Easy Ordering!

I’m guilty of falling into the ease of ordering from Amazon. But please take a few extra minutes to cross-check from the vendor directly. I was about to order some organic boxers for my Son, from City threads, via Amazon. I took 3 extra minutes to compare with City Threads directly. Here’s the difference: $33.25 via City Threads, $34.76 via Amazon…. And they don’t have to give Amazon a chunk of that so it’s a big difference for the vendor. I know return policies are a big deal, especially when it comes to clothing.

Here’s City Threads policy: City Threads offers returns for full refund or store credit within 30 days from when the order is received. The customer will be responsible for paying a small cost to return the item, as listed below: RETURN ONE ITEM: $3.67 shipping cost (deducted from refund when we receive returned item). RETURN 2 OR MORE ITEMS: $7.55 flat-rate shipping cost (deducted from refund when we receive returned item).

It’s so easy to justify Amazon Prime and “free shipping”. It’s not frickin’ free, it’s $119/year. So City Threads came in cheaper, and that included $4.75 1st class shipping. So much of life is about habits, and I am pushing myself to get out of the 3 click ease of buying via Amazon.

City Threads, a great source for made in the USA and even ORGANIC underwear and other clothing! https://www.citythreads.com/

A small, organic, family farm needs help ♥


My best friend is in need of help. Her certified organic apple orchard has 10% of the crop it should, if that. We’re talking maybe 3,000 bushel instead of 30,000. It sucks so bad because there is huge demand for her apples, especially as vinegar.  But this year, out of nearly 20 she’s been there, the crop is not there. You can see it when you drive up. Some trees have a few apples, many have none. Some will have one branch that looks great, the rest of the tree is bare. It is so sad.


This woman is my inspiration to always do what I can, when I can, where I can. To do better, to do more. She truly lives her life as an example of being a good steward to the land, an amazing Mom, a fantastic friend, a surrogate Auntie to my kids. Many don’t realize that there is a small list of approved sprays that can be used on organic crops. She refuses to use ANY spray for anything. Instead she relies on beneficial gardens and bugs, pigs who root up the ground and eat insects, she understands and values the complete ecosystem she has on her ridge, and understands how it works together. This year, something happened, and the apples aren’t there like they have been every other year since the orchard was planted. I know our local community is going to band together & help as much as we can, but I also know some of you have a few extra bucks that you are willing to send to a good cause. And I assure you, there are few causes I will ever feel better about supporting than this one. I have already made a cash donation, and will be donating as many hours as my time as I possibly can to help her produce items for the boxes she will be sending out.


If able, you can PayPal donations in any amount (please click on photo below & read details). If able to donate $150, you can choose to receive a gift box full of goodies from the orchard this fall, in time for Thanksgiving, all certified organic. She has worked her butt off, as always, to harvest all the bounty the orchard provides all year: berries of every kind get made into jelly, garlic gets ground into powder, herbs get harvested & dried, elderberries into syrup, etc. What apples they are able to harvest will be made into pie filling & vinegar. And if you can’t donate, I 100% understand! Please offer well-wishes, prayers, good vibes, whatever you believe in, up to the Universe so that this family can stay on the land they love & see another, better apple season ♥



A Go Fund Me page has now been created too. They have a huge goal, but together, many small donations will get them there! https://www.gofundme.com/f/turkey-ridge-organic-orchard?utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR0gLSKxg8qbfXl-b-Yq72mEZsGFP3cv_oPBHR9VgRi29YPavifdCNpF-GQ
