Eco-friendly USA One-Stop Shop

UPCOMING ORDER STARTS SOON: Feb 1-10th. I know not everyone observes Easter, but many do & I’m noting things that would make good basket stuffers below. Delivery for this order will be end of Feb/early March.


Next order is June!



I wanted to share this, to give you an idea of the cost savings you can take advantage of by using the buying club. Her order totaled $139.00. She ordered from 6 of the 20 vendors available, paid no sales tax (unless you’re in my state of WI, sorry neighbors), and paid $8.15 for shipping. I would say this is an average order, some are smaller, some are much, much larger. Also, many vendors offer exclusive sales and items just to the buying club. 1st time customer:  “I finally placed my first Buying Club order this round and am SO thrilled with everything! Everything arrived safely and quickly! I took a few minutes to see how much I saved on shipping/tax and it came out to an amazing $35!!! Love this process for buying small/local and will definitely be placing another order in the fall! A million thanks to Jessica Brandt and all you do for this group! ” Below is her order.


And another super awesome cost savings comparison from Anne: Just want to add my recent savings through the buying club. I ordered from 9 vendors. Shipping would have been $74.66 if I had purchased separately. $17.10 for ONE priority box from Jess. And as a disclaimer, I wouldn’t have purchased one item from Mountain Rose Herbs and paid $8.28 shipping, but through the club, I can get just one item!!
I can’t thank you enough, Jess! Your time and dedication to the buying club is invaluable to me!

  • Preserve – I need to order razors by the 6-pack in addition to the toothbrushes, so can’t guarantee color choices. Toothbrushes come in ultra soft, soft & medium (for adults). Children’s are all soft. If you’d like your own 6-pack of the travel cases I’ll gladly order those for you, but no individuals in travel cases. The 6-pack comes in assorted colors. You can give me your color preference, but I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to give everyone the specific color they’d like. I will make sure you don’t get 2 of the same color though!  Adult brushes $3 each ($18/6-pack), children’s $3.30 ($20/6-pack) for the mail back packs:

Please include the product number (ex: R101), everything comes with option of stainless or black handle, so that product# is essential. Everything available, prices as marked on their site. Lots of dip mixes too, but NOT made with organic ingredients. I’m not saying you can’t order them, but just do be aware those are not something I personally recommend:


  • Redmond Trading Company Prices as marked except Earthpaste which I can offer at $6.50/tube instead of $7.67. In addition to Earthpaste they offer Redmond Clay (bentonite), Bath Salts, and many culinary salts. I put their Seasoning Salt on just about everything!

Simply pour a dime size amount in your hand add water to create paste in the shower. Just need to be sure to close after dispensing so water doesn’t get in it. Blends offered- Citrus(orange), Mint(peppermint), Clove, Lavender, Lemongrass, or Unscented. Conditioner available in all the above except lemongrass.

  • Tangie- Laundry soap! I had good results with the bar she sent me, and she sent samples to several people in my group & it is getting great feedback from some of them, others are giving it so-so reviews. That’s why I love that there is a $5 sample size, give it a try & see if you like it before ordering a full size bar! Laundry Paste, Stain Remover bar, Shave Cream soap bar available at the retail price listed on website​ and the Laundry Paste samples are $5.00 (6-12 loads).

Organic fabrics available! Here’s the site with all available product:


  • Vejibags– NEW VENDOR!! All prices as marked here:  Our vegetable storage bags use 100% organic french terry cotton, grown by the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative, and hand sewn by employee-owned Opportunity Threads, in Valdese, North Carolina. Undyed, Unbleached, 100% cotton.  Just like cut flowers, vegetables need water to stay vibrant. The key to keeping veggies crisp is moisture. When damp, the cloth Vejibag keeps moisture-loving vegetables moist and crisp in a breathable but high humidity environment. Moisture slowly evaporates from the surface of the bag to circulate air and keep the vegetables “breathing.” The slightly moist environment of the bag keeps vegetables crisp far longer than vegetables stored in a plastic bag.



*WHY DO AN ECO-FRIENDLY BUYING CLUB? I’ve been doing reviews for almost 5 years to find the safest products on the market for my family & yours. I have discovered several fabulous lines of products! It is discouraging to find out how much shipping is just to try a few products. The idea is to place large orders with each company as a group. Get your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to go in on an order with you!

*HOW DO I ORDER? Email orders to me at INCLUDE your mailing address & a list of your items. Include: name of the company, names and quantities of the products you want, size (if there is more than one option for that product…2 oz, 4 oz, etc), and the price of the item so I don’t have to look it up.

Here’s an example of an order:

Blue Egg Farmstore:
Cut the Crap Sunkissed Facebutter – Lemon & Ginger, 1 @ 12.00

Mountain Rose Herbs:
Soy Candles in a Tin – Northern Forest, 1 @ 7.00

Josiah’s Oils:
Natural Sea Wool Sponge, bath sponge – 1 @ 11.25
Acne Foaming Face Wash WITH Activated Charcoal – 1 @ 11.99
Beach Paradise Lotion – 1 @ 5.99
Organic Lime in the Coconut Shampoo, 9 oz, 1 @ 11.00

Bug spray, 1 @ 8.00

Poofy Organics:
Black Mascara, 1 @ 20.00
Mighty Mane Shampoo, 1 @ 20.00
IAG Vesta Dishwashing Liquid – 1 @ 14.00

Redmond Trading Company:
EarthCure Natural Foaming Soap, 1 of Lavender, 1 of Citrus, and 1 of Peppermint.  Each 3.99 for a total of 11.97 (on sale)
*HOW OFTEN DO YOU DO THIS? 3 times/year:  February, June, Oct. Delivery is a couple weeks after the deadline, as soon as I have everything in my hands I start filling orders in the order received. I send your final invoice with shipping as soon as I know that amount, you pay, I ship.

*WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF ORDERING AS A GROUP? Consolidated shipping costs! My homemade deodorant is a good example of how expensive it is to ship. I ask $8 for a jar, and it costs $6.45 to ship via the USPS. Now, you can purchase a jar of my deodorant, dish soap from Poofy Organics, toothpaste from Earthpaste,  a bottle of castile soap from MamaSuds, laundry powder from Molly’s Suds, a body scrub from Simply Rustic (random example) & you’ll only pay one shipping fee and receive it all in one box from me to you! The idea is that you can order as much as you want, from whichever companies you want, and the more the better to fill up a flat rate box!

*WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM ME? Patience. Realize that this is a slow process, but hopefully one that will get products in your hands that you’ve been waiting to try. If you need something immediately, please order it yourself.

*HOW DO I PAY FOR MY ORDER? You have 2 options: PayPal or personal check (many have gone to e-checking, which is fine too). You will be sent a final invoice once your order is ready to ship (I’ll send you a QuickBooks invoice with the total amount). As soon as I receive payment your order will be on the way!

*WHERE DO YOU SHIP AND IS IT INSURED? I ship anywhere in the US & territories, and to any APO. I use USPS Priority flat & regional rate boxes, which includes $50 in insurance and free tracking. Additional insurance is optional. Your final invoice will include the quote for full coverage; if you choose not to purchase it subtract it from your total when paying. Out of ~500 packages shipped/year, I’ve only ever made a handful of claims for leaking or damaged goods, all under $50. But, if your $300 package gets lost or completely damaged, and you did not purchase the additional insurance, all we’ll be able to recover is $50.

THE FINE PRINT: I can’t be responsible for anything once the package leaves my hands. All sales are final. I will fix any errors I make, but if you order the wrong product, or aren’t happy with it, you’re stuck with it.

    Thanks for such a quick response. So just to make sure I’m clear… To purchase from your club I choose items from the above shops links? They will all be shipped for 41 bucks? And you have reviewed all these items and consider them safe? Almost sounds too good to be true lol

      I used the $12/$40 shipping as an example. I don’t make any money on shipping, and there are various box sizes. I package it in the smallest box possible. I did receive your order, and it actually seems like it should be a perfect fit for the $40 box, but I CAN’T guarantee that until I have it in front of me… I’ll do everything I can to ship it for that, or less! And no, I haven’t reviewed every single item from every single vendor on the list, but have personally used many of the items, especially from the personal care vendors, and know & trust the lines to provide only safe products. You truly are getting the very best of the very best, and I have spent years looking!!

      Very active, just took 110 orders for the Feb group order! They’re quarterly, the next one will be in May, you can email me your order between 5/1-5/16, then there’ll be an Aug & Nov order. I also always buy extras & put those up once all the orders are filled in a post-club sale, so if you want to make sure not to miss that you should join my group page where I post all announcements:

    Is the washcloth shop still on the list? I would love to see what they offer, but cannot get the link to work. Thanks!


    • ecofriendlymamausa
      Jan 11, 2016 @ 03:16:00

      She will have new offerings for us in Feb for sure! But after Feb she’s going to go to every 6m or once/year as sales have dropped quite a bit. It’s one of those things, once you have them you’re set for awhile! But the answer is yes, they will be available, stay tuned!

    May 02, 2016 @ 22:25:55

    so how much is final shipping cost? I see may club has mentioned that its $2 more but I am new here so dont know how much it was before.


    • ecofriendlymamausa
      Jul 12, 2016 @ 20:38:00

      Sorry I just saw this now. I use regional and flat rate shipping via the USPS. The cheapest something can ship for is $6 and it goes up from there. A large flat rate box for example is $18.75 but can hold hundreds of dollars worth of product. I don’t charge any handling fees, only exactly what it costs to ship your box. So, it totally depends on what you order. Many orders ship for $6.80 in a padded flat rate envelope. The next order is right around the corner, 8/1-8/15 with deliver the beginning of Sep.
