Just wanted to let anyone who cares know that my daughters and I all absolutely love our Envirosax reusable bags! They are beautiful and they hold a lot of stuff. They also fold up really small so it's easy to toss one in your purse or coat pocket. I keep the whole set in my car for easy access, too. I highly recommend them!

Oh, I got us the Mikado set.

Think it's tacky to get these for my boss for Mother's Day? The county where we live has passed a no plastic bag law to go into affect I think in 2010 & I thought this might help her get ready.

Not at all! These would make a beautiful gift! I know you can get a lot of bags in stores now cheaper, but for gifts these are great.

I wish our county would outlaw plastic!

This topic is going to make me go broke! Aside from knitting my passion is being environmentally friendly, and it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg to do so... unless you're like me and you can't get enough cool things people show you.

I use all Method products. Love their cleaning products for wood, stainless, all purpose. They have free and clear cleaners for those of us who are allergic to everything. Their floor cleaner set up is wonderful. Hand soaps are wonderful. I could honestly go on and on about their products.

We use tons of concetrated household products from Melaleuca, all are non-caustic and made from nothing harmful.

Your link went to your business site for some reason. I changed it so it went to the Melaleuca product site.

When my daughter was 2 years old she got these nasty red, dry, splotches behind her knees and on her legs. The doctors were all to informative about it and weren't really helpful with it either.

I found Melaleuca just by browsing around on my own.

I can tell you what a miracle company they are. Not only did the lotion ReNew work miracles on her skin. I also read that changing the way the house was being cleaned: eliminating aerosols, and caustic and toxic chemicals- along with what the clothing was being washed in made a HUGE difference in her skin condition.

So I would say HANDS DOWN that Melaleuca is quiet possibly THE BEST around when it comes to environmentally friendly. Not only are the products free of all that harmful stuff they clean brillantly! And to top it all off, they come in concentrated form and you use water from your own house to dilute them. (Didn't know you were paying for water when you bought them from the store did ya? Ya, even Seventh Generation has you paying for water. Man, that's some expensive water!!!!)

Go check them out, and see for yourself. You only live once. Why would you be skeptical of something that is so natural... and economically sound? These days we need both!

I'm not a salesperson for them, but I am not shy about what they have done to help control my daughter's skin condition and to help keep my family healthy and well.

We all LOVE Melaleuca!!!!

I have them, too, but don't use make-up much. I do love them, though!

I love anything by Mrs Meyers!!

http://www.mrsmeyers.com/

My favorites are the countertop spray and the surface scrub, both in lavender.

I have to admit, I started using these for purely selfish reasons. I am super sensitive to chemicals, the smell gives me an instant headache and I break out something horrid!

These work very well, smell awesome, and are nice on your skin!
