If my blog were an exhibit at the Louvre….

I really enjoyed my year end report from WordPress: “The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. Your blog was viewed about 170,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 7 days for that many people to see it.” My Safe Toy List, Greenwashers List, and Buying Club note were my 3 most viewed resources. I had visitors from 156 countries visit my site, with most from the US of course, with Canada & the U.K rounding out the top 3. They go on to list quite a few more stats, but those are the ones I valued the most.

Celebrating 2 years!!!

Today is the 2 year anniversary of launching this page!!! I woke up on 2/22/12 & decided to start a page to vent my frustrations related to birthday shopping for my son’s upcoming 1st B-day and finding many of the items I was picking up in the stores to be made in China. I figured maybe other parents could benefit from the research I was already doing, and sharing that info just made sense. I will share an interview below which explains a little more about me, and the catalysts for this page for those who aren’t already familiar with the info. Mainly, the catalysts were Johnson & Johnson & their toxic baby products, and Melissa & Doug toys made in China. I’m so proud of this page, the great co-admin I have (who has been here a year now!), and the great, caring, considerate, very well educated community we have here! My website is a year old now, and has had almost 80,000 views in that time- WOW!!! Thank YOU for being here!! We must be the change we wish to see in the future of our planet- keep up the great work Mamas & Dadas

Children have bad days too!



I’ve seen this before & boy does it speak true to my almost 3 year old. Children are known for giving honest answers (most of the time) and this morning he was having a rough time for no reason other than he’s almost 3 & I asked why… “I don’t know Mama” was his response. I scooped him up & gave him a huge hug & said It’s OK to not know sometimes!!! Amazing to see the changes my Baby Boy is going through, and that he’s starting to become aware of his feelings! We’re getting somewhere!! YES, we need to teach them to be respectful, empathetic, caring individuals but we also need to acknowledge that they too have bad days & bad moods just like the rest of the human population!


I’m am so thrilled to have this site up & running! It would not have been possible without the volunteer help from a passionate mama who dove into it & used her previous experience to help get this site together. I started out as a Facebook page, which is about to celebrate it’s 1st birthday at the end of February, 2013! The website has been requested by many, mainly for the reason that Facebook is not searchable by keyword or past posts. Now we have that ability! To search the website by topic of interest you can start with the search bar on the right hand side. Any posts that mention the topic you’ve typed in will come back, and you can then use the Control F function (on a PC, not sure about a Mac) to search within those documents for a specific word. Please visit my Facebook page, if you’re not already familiar with it: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Eco-friendly-babyfamily-products-MADE-in-the-USA/397517646930548?sk=info

I do not own my own business, am not trying to sell anything here, nor do I have any ties with any company I may recommend. I’m a label-reading mama on a mission to find the safest products on the market, for my family & yours!
