BeGreen with Green and Organic T-Shirts


Amber Sorrells, from Easy Green Mom, is one of my favorite mommy bloggers.  She has turned to crowd funding source, Kickstarter, for her new Eco-friendly company, Be Green T, an organic and green t-shirt that sends a message.  BeGreen T shirts are made with high quality and Eco-friendly materials.  Even the hang tags and shipping supplies will be made from recycled materials.

 “Lets spread the Green message via T-shirt!”


  • All shirts are printed on 100% Organic Cotton, which is super soft.
  • Water-based inks that are more environmentally-friendly than traditional inks used.
  • Manufactured by a certified B Corporation and 100% made in the USA.
  • Unique, simple, modern and stylish designs that send a message.
  • Portion of profit will be donated to Giving Diapers, Giving Hope, a non-profit organization that provides education, support and cloth diapers to low income families in the continental United States.


Be Comfortable, Be Stylish, Be Green!

I had the special privilege of receiving one of the first BeGreen T’s.  It is so luxuriously soft!  Organic cotton really does feel softer and makes for better clothing.  That’s why I’m supporting this kickstarter!


 Backers of the BeGreen T campaign will receive great rewards; BeGreen T stickers, an Exclusive BeGreen T shirt for Kickstarter, pre-order of shirts, and voting power of shirt designs released!   

The Kickstarter campaign runs from September 15 until October 14, and funding is “all or none” meaning if the $2500 goal is not reached the project will not be funded.

Organic Shopping Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

When I first started buying organic, researching foods, and reading labels, I had a really hard time venturing from my couponing, cheapskate  ways, trying to find the best deal on "food," but what I realized quickly was that what we had been buying wasn't really food at all.  Sure I could find cheap junk food, cereals with food dye and dangerous additives, and get great deals on fruit straight from other countries, but when I started examing where our food came from and what was in it, I realized that sometimes paying a higher price now is better than paying for it later.  

Earthbound Farm Organic

I was introuced to Earthbound Farm Organic in the grocery store when I started shopping wisely.  Earthbound Farm Organic has a great guide to shopping on their website, to make green shopping easier.  Here are some great tips from the website:

Have a Paperless Kitchen!

paperless kitchen

Paperless Kitchen is a company that was founded to help people find alternatives to paper kitchen products.  They have chosen reusable and sustainable products to replace paper towels, nylon scrubbers, paper napkins, and other items used to clean and maintain your kitchen, as well as other items to use around the house and workplace.

I was sent a pack of Skoy cloths to review.  Skoy cloths are great because they are made with natural cotton and cellulose pulp, instead of wood pulp. These alternatives to paper towels are chlorine free and contain only water-based dyes.  One Skoy cloth can be used enough to equal 15 rolls of paper towels!  And since you can buy one for $2.99 or four for $8.99, that's an awesome deal because one roll of paper towels is at least a dollar!  And you can sterilize Skoy cloths in the microwave or wash them in the dishwasher or washing machine.  They do eventually become worn out, but then, you can compost them or throw them away.  They usually break down within five weeks!

Paperless kitchen

I have really enjoyed using my Skoy cloths.  They are great for cleaning up spills, as they are super absorbent.  They also have "scrubbers" on the back, much better than paper towels:

We were able to review the sandwich bag from lunchskins.  I immediately ran it through the dishwasher cycle, along with my dishes, and it came out good as new.  It was clean and I felt good about packing food and snacks for the kids in the lunchskins sandwich bag!  Plus, with it's bold print, it's pretty easy to not throw it out!
