Eco-friendly USA One-Stop Shop




***The trend continues that the USPS raises their prices every January, and this year is no exception. It looks like ~$.50.$65/package. I ship A LOT of orders in the padded flat rate, those went up from $6.90 to $7.55, the regular flat rate envelope from $6.35 to $6.95. Just a heads up!



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!

  • A Remedy for That–   I know many of you stocked up on tallow balm during the club when I offered a previous vendor, I’m happy to offer this product again! She sent me a sample of her fire cider just in time for me to come down with a sore throat. I was worried the elixir might be a bit too hot/spicy based on the ingredients, but I found it totally delicious, like a yummy salad vinaigrette. I took several doses of it throughout the day, alternating with elderberry syrup she also sent, and by the next day I was so pleasantly surprised my sore throat was completely gone! The tallow balm has a wonderful creamy consistency & pleasant smell. I’m so happy to have a jar on hand for the fall/winter months, when my hands become extremely dry usually. NOTE: she does also offer CBD & elderberry gummies & homemade elderberry syrup. Due to these needing to remain refrigerated as much as possible, I decided they weren’t a good fit for the club. But she sent me samples of both & I found them both very yummy (the syrup was a perfect blend in my opinion), and the gummies were both yummy & definitely helped me unwind at night before bed. Here is her contact info for those items (she ships with an ice pack):

–Grassfed Tallow Balm: Tallow, Avocado Oil, Beeswax and essential oils (Lavender, lemon and Melrose), can be whipped (note on order) – $12/4oz $20/8oz

–Magic Elixir (fire cider): Organic Raw ACV, black pepper, horseradish, ginger, garlic, onion, lemon, variety of spicy peppers, fermented turmeric, rosemary and thyme. $7/4 oz, $14/8oz $25/16oz (glass mason jar).

Fall/Thanksgiving 7 pc set for $13.49

Christmas 7 pc set for $13.49

  • Better Life Samples- $2 each. Unscented except dish soap which is lemon/mint. I only have a handful of the laundry left, but a couple cases of the dish options.


  • Blue Egg Farmstore- She continually expands her line. Well-known & loved for her ‘play’ items: play dough, DIY kits, etc. which are all perfect for gift-giving.
  • Cold Bee Gone- Available at $11.95 instead of $13.95 via Amazon. A homeopathic remedy that you swab in your nose to fight colds, flu and allergies. The science behind the Nasal Swab Method is that cold and flu viruses generally enter the body through our eyes, ears nose or throat, and then replicate millions of times within 1-3 days. Introducing our ingredients can help reduce the duration and severity of the illness.



  • Josiah’s Oils LLC –  All sale prices on her website will be honored to the buying club! Ninette offers a large selection of personal care & home essentials! I get many of my Essential Oils from here, especially her blends (immune boost, germ fighting) for both diffusing and as roll-on’s. I’ve used the atomizing diffuser from them for several years now. NEW CBD line, the CBD-infused honey looks like a great way to get your CBD!


  • Life and Balance–  My Hubby & I tested this deo for 2 full weeks & both found it to work well for us! The lemon scent is very refreshing. I urge you to give it a try if you’re on the hunt for a new deodorant! The lip balms are also very nice, I especially enjoy the black cherry! 


  • Luffa Gardens- . New: We have a kids luffa & xxl super scrubber. Please NOTE: their soaps contain synthetic scents at this time, they are hoping to switch over to Essential Oil based scents in the future, but for now, I’d like to stick with just offering the luffas. From their website: “These Luffa sponges when wet are naturally soft and supreme when it comes to exfoliation of the skin. Along with being very durable, they are 100% biodegradable, natural farm grown sponges that are prepared by hand in Reedley, Central Valley California. These are NOT the hard chemically treated cheap foreign grown sponges you find in most stores and online. The Luffa sponges we grow are very unique and by far the best you will ever encounter. Please rinse them in warm water before use and the luxuriousness of the Luffa will unfold in your hand. Since these Luffas are all natural, you may notice that a Luffa’s color can be from light brown to off-white. Because they are NOT bleached, a Luffa will probably have discoloration in areas or even a seed or two. This is perfectly normal and will not affect the performance of the sponge. Although they are incredible in the bath or shower, there are many uses for these durable Luffa sponges. They are great for washing dishes, windows, laminate floors, baseboards, sinks, granite and tile counter tops. I’m sure you can imagine a great many more uses for these amazing sponges! You can cut these sponges while wet with scissors, or when dry, with a smooth edge butcher’s knife to any size.”



  • MamaSuds Everything available except gallons of the liquid laundry soap (too bulky & heavy to ship).  I love the castile soap – a great alternative to Dr. Bronner’s as it’s gentler (it doesn’t contain citric acid)! She’s working on reducing plastic use, yay! NEW: handsoap in a glass bottle. Dish powder doesn’t come with a plastic scoop, you have to opt in for that, most people have a scoop they can use at home already! Toilet bombs are now plastic-free, the inner bag is now kraft paper.
**Following  MamaSuds items for sale for The Buying Club ONLY. Contact her via her website with ingredient and/or any other questions on the following:
Age Defying Cream (2 oz) $18
Bug Spray (4 oz) $9
Hand Sanitizer $5
Baby Cream w/ zinc oxide (4 oz)$14
Body Cream  (8 oz) $18

  • Mari’s Bliss-  Mari’s Bliss offers many new & improved products that can help alleviate pain, muscle soreness, sleep issues, anxious feelings, and much more. Her products contain a variety of combinations of magnesium chloride, arnica, CBD, and essential oils. In addition she has an Itch Relief stick that has helped people with itches from bug bites to psoriasis. She offers options that are safe for ages 10 and up, 2 and up, & breastfeeding or pregnant women. The magnesium body butter and the magnesium lotion sticks are available with no essential oils, PLUS (turmeric, marjoram, myrrh, and frankincense serrata -all organic), Mother (turmeric & marjoram -all organic), and Relax (lavender, vetiver, sandalwood, and bergamot -all organic) essential oil blends.


  • Meli Wraps- Reusable beeswax food wraps made from GOTS certified organic cotton and a signature beeswax blend to create a natural wrap that helps preserve your food. The wraps stick to themselves and can be washed and re-used for up to a year! Cover your bowls, plates or food themselves! Make snack packs, wraps sandwiches, over cover half avocados! 3 new patterns (the 3 pack contains all 3 of the same print): Lau, Dragonfruit, Kahanu.


  • Molly’s suds Powdered laundry detergent! Their policy has changed, I need to order everything by a case of 6, so some of the fringe offerings I cannot guarantee. You can list your items and I will let you know if I have enough orders to fulfill your request. Powdered laundry detergent is for sure a go, in any scent, as well as the oxygen whitener. Prices as marked:
  •  Mountain Rose Herbs –  Be aware if you plan on buying any bulk items that they will take up way more room in your box than other items. `Some dried herbs are suuuuuper bulky, like 1# of dried nettle leaves, alfalfa, etc vs 1# of dried elderberries, onion powder, more dense items.  Prices as marked. Be very specific as they offer many products in many sizes, for example: garlic powder, 1 oz. or 1#. 


  • Natural Sprinkle Company- Everything listed is available. Not a ton of holiday options, she promises more great options are in the works for 2020. The Misteloe Rock Set was quite popular last year. I only plan to offer this vendor at this time of year, so consider grabbing some birthday, etc sprinkles now, they have at least a 1 year shelf life. NOTE: delivery will not be before Halloween, so don’t order with that in mind.


  • Onyx Containers: The Tickle Trunk is their retail site: This is the only vendor offering products not made in the USA, as stainless steel is next to impossible to find manufactured here. This is my trusted source for all things stainless, I own a LOT of Onyx products: popsicle molds, divided trays, ice cube trays, ice packs, chip clips, and storage galore! Again, think back-to-school now as the order after this is in Oct!


  • Poofy Organics: HEADS UP: Poofy prices are increasing during the time the buying club orders are coming in. But there is also FREE SHIPPING directly from Poofy, on all orders $45+ now. I will have to charge you whatever the prices is per product when I submit the order after 10/13. NEW Wellness line of supplements, including: electrolytes, lactaction support, 3 digestive aid blends and MORE, check them out under the supplements category. Everything available, price as marked. The make-up line has been completely revamped, new shades, new palettes, please take a look!
  • Poofy Organics CBD: there is a separate link for Poofy CBD, here it is:


  • 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:


  • Pure Play Kids- NOTE: I pulled many of the products to put in my Dad’s flower shop, so they may show out of stock online but may actually be sitting on a shelf there. So feel free to list the item(s), and if they haven’t sold down there I’ll grab them for you.   Many things are very limited quantity, literally 1 or 2 remain (I purchased all the inventory the former owners had), especially the Pure Play Originals category, when those are gone, they’re likely gone forever. So, submit your order early to make sure you get your item(s). For this one, actually go ahead and submit your order online. Enter code: buyingclub to remove the $6.95 flat rate shipping. Then please note on your buying club list that you ordered via Pure Play. This helps me keep track of inventory! There are several vendors that I only offer once or twice/year via the club, but I have items stocked via this site: Good Ducks, Earth Paints, cookie (play dough) cutters, Cold Bee Gone, Purrfect Play (pet toys), Island Picnic (organic cotton sandwich/snack bag sets).


  • Rada Cutlery– Newish and very popular vendor! I picked up a tomato slicer for myself & WOW, it cuts tomatoes perfectly, like butter! 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!


  • salonsolids- Dry shampoo/conditioner granules, you mix with hot water & viola, have a small bottle of shampoo, no preservatives, no plastic usage!   The citrus is a good for all hair types for shine and most popular. Lemongrass and peppermint are best for dandruff/lice repellents. Clove and peppermint stimulate hair growth. All are chosen for being beneficial for hair/scalp.


  • Simply Gum–  $3/pack. Flavor options: NEW Spearmint gum, in addition to peppermint, cinnamon, maple, ginger, fennel, coffee, and 3 gum blends. The relatively new MINTS have received great reviews, I really like them myself! In Peppermint, Cinnamon or Ginger $3.50/tin of 45 mints.


  • Simply Rustic-  This face line has always been very, very loved by many who participate in the buying club. And the lip balms are among my favorite of dozens I’ve tried! The face and body wash is back, along with all the fall scents for a limited time— pumpkin spice lip balm and body butter, s’mores lip balm and body butter and spiced apple lip balm and body butter (new). Elderberry syrup excluded (local pickup in PA only).


  • Tangie, waste-free products- Super concentrated bars, in the following offerings: laundry paste, hand soap paste, shampoo & conditioner bar, dish washing bar, shave cream bar and pet shampoo bar.



  • Vejibags– 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

      Feb 17, 2014 @ 03:42:48

      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!!

      Feb 18, 2015 @ 18:09:04

      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!

    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.
