Why Is Smoking On The Rise Despite Anti-Smoking Campaigns and Research?

Beating Smoking

Are you trying to quit smoking? It may seem like an endless battle but there are more reasons to stop then to continue. I know here in the state of NY a package of cigarettes has gone up to over $9 a pack! Including the gas it takes for late night trips to the store, you could be spending $40 a month or more. That could run you a bill of over $400 a year! Of course money isn’t the only factor.
First and foremost you should quit for your health and the others around you! Did you know that children with parents who smoke are more likely to smoke themselves? Not only that but there so many increased health risks to both you and your children.

Over 4 million people die each year due to smoke related illnesses. Illnesses that could be avoided!

What Are "GREEN" Wines? {Sponsor Wines.com}

Do you eat organic fruits and veggies? Why not drink organic wine too? Conventional farming actually ruins the earth from the overuse of pesticides and chemicals fertilizers. Organic farming is better for your body and the earth.

People have been making wine for a long time. I think we should stick to the way it has been for centuries and protect the earth. I was browsing wine.com and I noticed they have a nice organic selection. I am not a big wine drinker myself but there are some I would buy for my father. He enjoys trying new wine.

At wine.com you can get 1 cent shipping on your first order. Just use the code "welcome" during check out. Read on to see this awesome infograph about "green" wine.

Willow Store Wool Dryer Balls Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Summer Cloth Diaper

The Willow Store is a great website that focuses on reusable products. The company was created in 2005 by Catherine Bolden, with hopes to preserve our earth. This is so well put I didn't want to change a word...

"We will not compromise on our beliefs.  All of our products are ethically manufactured in the US, we strongly support small business, and living wages. We choose only the highest quality materials, and organic whenever possible, sourced in the US whenever possible." -The Willow Store

I am proud to represent a company like this. I was given the opportunity to try their wool dryer balls. I have been wanting to try wool dryer balls for quite some time now. We were given those spikey plastic dryer balls at one point, but when I found out that they could be releasing harmful chemicals every time they were heated in the dryer, I tossed them! Plus, I have been trying my best to find plastic alternatives whenever possible. Read more about the dangers of plastic.

A Happy Green Life All Natural Laundry Wash Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Summer Cloth Diaper Hop

About a year ago Amanda Wucher-Aller and Kristin Ward decided to create their own detergent for their families. They wanted something they could use on all their clothes including their cloth diapers. Kristen's husband is a chef, Amanda's husband is in the military and they have four kids between them. So, they needed something that would wash even the dirtiest messes but was still safe for their families and the environment. They researched and put together a non-toxic eco friendly wash. They had friends and family test it out until they had the perfect combination. At the beginning of 2012 the two friends finalized their product and packaging, opening their store "A Happy Green Life."
In college Kristin studied anthropology and Amanda studied environmental studies. They are teaching their children that the earth is precious and needs to be preserved. This year they are trying to grow all of their own food in their gardens. When they have extra time, they love to visit the zoo to see the chimpanzees.
They love things from nature and individuals instead of big factories. They are passionate about being GREEN!

"Our families are trying hard to be green but that doesnt mean we are perfect. Far from it! I cant live without my air conditioner or my SUV."-Amanda

Little Love Buns Cloth Diaper Detergent and Wipe Bits Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Fluffy Butts Giveaway Hop

About Little Love Buns:
After the birth of her twin girls, Dallas, came to love cloth diapers. One of her girls ended up with very sensitive skin. Dallas wanted desperately to continue with cloth. After trying several commercial detergents with no success, she decided to make her own. She came up with a recipe that is safe, good for sensitive skin, avoids build up and is cost efficient. She knows it works because she uses it herself. She started Little Love Buns to share her creations. Her children, husband and faith are what drive her to do the best she can. Dallas is an easy going, hard working woman. When she has a moment to spare she spends it with her family.

Happy Yiayia Tie Dyed Prefold and Flat Diaper Review and Giveaway {Sponsor Spotlight} Fluffy Butts Giveaway Hop

Kimberly was kind enough to sponsor another event. Read my other review on her colorful toys!

About Happy Yiayia:
Kimberly, a homeschooling mother to five kids, has enjoyed tie dying for herself and her family for quite some time. Just recently, she and her mother Becky (who does the sewing) joined forces to bring you Happy Yiayia. Kimberly has done what most of us can only dream about, create a business out of a hobby. She enjoys the anticipation and excitement from hand dying each piece and waiting to see how it turns out. Then she is able to share it with the world. She feels it is important that her children see her take time for herself and do something she enjoys and I couldn't agree more! When Kimberly isn't working or teaching her children she is spending time outside hiking, swimming, camping or just hanging out with friends and family.
