My Brawl at Walgreens While Asking Them to Mind The Store

Today thousands of people like me, returned toxic products we purchased on Walgreens' store shelves

So Here's The Skinny on The Walgreens Mind The Store Day of Action...

Today was a day of action in over 45 cities throughout the US, including here in Orlando, and thousands of consumers came together to demand Walgreens take action and Mind The Store while we returned products consumers think are safe that sit on their store shelves which are full of cancer causing, hormone disrupting chemicals.  

Back in April of 2013 when Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families launched the Mind The Store campaign, we asked the top 10 retailers to join with us and create a healthier future for all by taking action against the unsafe consumer goods on their shelves.  

Target and Walmart have already taken action and are making great strides in their supply chains to create shelves full of safer products for consumers, but amazingly the largest drugstore that claims to care about health and family, Walgreens, has not responded

What Is The Future of Green Cars?

Consumers Embrace Electric Vehicles But What’s Next? 


It seems that electric vehicles (EV’s) are finally mainstream and consumers worldwide are purchasing them in record numbers. Nissan was so excited over their February EV sales numbers that they released them early with their sales showing 12 straight months of year-over-year sales increases for the world's most popular battery-electric vehicle, the Nissan Leaf.

"Longer term, we believe that electrification will continue to grow as more customers recognize the inherent benefits of driving on electricity." said Mike Tinskey, Ford Motor Company's Global Director of Vehicle Electrification and Infrastructure. "To date, industry sales are modest - 4% of all new sales are electrified products (PHEV, HEV, BEV) – but it is growing as this number was only 2% in early 2012."

"Bottom line, people are either getting bored of hybrid cars, their gas cars or truck and speaking with their wallets for some increased form of electric transport. " says Seth Leitman, Green Living Guy.

Today the choices in design offer something for everyone and range anxiety is becoming a thing of the past with charging stations popping up worldwide to reduce range anxiety.

"The US and Europe are in a close race based on charging station numbers. We are seeing about 23,000 stations in the US, and roughly 20,000 in Europe. This is data from January 2014, and with Europe on a fast installation pace, our estimate is that the two regions are a close tie." said Tinskey.

But now many are wondering what is next for the future of green cars?

What Do You Put In Your Reusable Bag? - Vine Video


What Do You Put in Your Reusable Bag?

by Christina Sidberry, EB Intern

"Paper or plastic?" This phrase, while commonly asked of consumers in the checkout lane, is missing the third, most efficient option, "Reusable?"

When considering the Reusable Bag, it is not uncommon to think that the fastest and easiest route to go is a single use plastic bag. In order to dispel this myth, I created the Vine video "What Do You Put in Your Reusable Bag?" for Factory Direct Promos to show just how important Reusable Bags are.

Wake Up Your Inner Goddess, Try This Easy Vegan Garlic Goddess Dressing


Are You a Vegan Goddess?  Try This Easy Vegan Garlic Goddess Dressing 


I like easy and I like to eat. I mean who doesn't right? But I'm just not so great in the kitchen. I have plenty of other talents but cooking just isn't one of them. I have found some tricks though that really help to hide my lack of.culinary prowess. One io those tricks is a line of hand-crafted, artisanal, organic, gourmet garlic products called Garlic Gold. 


Back in the day, I used to have to order all of my Garlic Gold products online (http://garlic gold.com) but now you can pretty much find them everywhere. All of the products are organic and there are so many different products to choose from, all with a flavorful garlic base, that you can make even the simplest foods taste like your a goddess in the kitchen. 


I love the Garlic Gold original oil and nuggets but I also really love their Herbs de Provence and Southwest Nuggets. I put it on chicken, fish, veggies, eggs, dips...like really everything!  Even my picky Lexie and Hayden-Jay like it. I cannot say enough great things about Garlic Gold. Obviously I'm a fan of a product that makes my life easier and yummiest...is that a word? 


Anyway, this Vegan Garlic Goddess Dressing is super easy to make and it's perfect tossed with some crisp organic romaine for a beautifully simple and delicious side, drizzled on a pita, or as a veggie dip. 


Enjoy and let me know how you like it!
