Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Green Your Mom Giveaway Hop!

Green Your Mom Giveaway
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Green Your Mom Giveaway Hop, hosted by Happy Mothering and the Green Moms Network! We are excited to bring you great prizes valued at $25+ to help you "Green Your Mom" (or yourself) this Mother's Day!. After entering my giveaway, be sure to visit the other blogs listed under the Rafflecopter form for your chance to win more great green mom giveaways.

I contacted Chelsea at Natural Products Network (NPN) and she graciously agreed to donate two products to the giveaway. Acure Facial Cleanser and Aura Cacia Panic Button Essential Solutions Mist make perfect gifts for the eco-conscious mom. In addition, the winner will receive a signed copy of my book, Vinegar Fridays. Thank Chelsea for sponsoring this giveaway by visiting and liking the Natural Products Network Facebook page. These products were featured on recent NPN TV segment.


As a mom, I know how we moms can sometimes hit the panic button when it comes to big deals, and sometimes, not-so-big deals. Our nerves get frazzled and off we go... That's why you, or a mom of your choosingour life, will love the Aura Cacia Panic Button Essential Solutions Mist. The mist is a blend of lavender (to relax you), neroli (to keep you centered) and petitgrain (for focusing). Ahhh. This formula helps you relax, calms your fears and helps you maintain (or regain) a level head. Throw away the panic button and just reach for the Aura Cacia Panic Button Essential Solutions Mist.


At the end of a long day, wash away away those worry lines with Acure Facial Cleanser. It works on two levels:
  1. The cleanser sheds your skin of dirt, oil, and makeup
  2.  The antioxidant dense cleansing complex maintains your skin's natural acid mantel, activates new cell growth, and helps you look younger and feel better
This is an ultimate cell boosting blend with Fair Trade organic olive oil and organic chlorella growth factor.

Once you (or the lucky mom you choose to bless with this prize package) climb into bed, relaxed and cleansed, you can pick up your copy of Vinegar Fridays and read about other ways to improve your life by eliminating toxins and replacing common household and personal care products with vinegar. And if the little ones climb in beside you, you can turn to the back of the book and read them the story, Soft Feet, Macaroni Salad and a Roomful of Scary Monsters.

This prize package is valued at over $35 and is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada.

Don't forget to check out the other participating blogs for more chances to win some awesome eco-friendly prizes!

  1. Not much! My Mom is 92 and no one was concerned about being green when I was growing up.

    1. Actually, Vera, that generation was green without knowing it. They didn't waste electricity, they line-dried their laundry, they didn't load up on toxins in their personal care products, they often had only one car, they fixed things rather than replacing them... the list goes on and on. They led by example. Too bad we didn't learn as much from them as we should have.

  17. We didn't consciously reduce, reuse, recycle but I learned to not just throw things out. We mended clothes and socks, used leftover food in other meals and fixed broken items or used them for a new purpose. Mind you most things were not so technical and they were easy to fix.

  23. We used to recycle when hardly anyone did! Even though we got flat tires because of broken glass near the recycling bins. My mom knew how to make things stretch with 8 kids I guess she had to! Hand me downs, donating old toys and clothes.....
