GO-GREEN Eco-Friendly Food Container Giveaway – Ends 10/7

GO-GREEN is a packaging specialist that aims to reduce the environmental impact of their packaging by using green solutions and materials.  The process to manufacture their polypropylene trays, for example, uses 30% less energy and less material than would typically be used for production of such a product.  Their strategy incorporates methods designed to reduce the packaging’s carbon footprint without sacrificing function or performance in their products.

Today, I am delighted to show you the GO-GREEN trays that I got to sample.  These round, three-compartment trays are about 8″ in diameter, and each compartment is about 2.5″ deep.  The tray itself is microwavable; the clear, flat lids, however, are not.

These trays are great for entertaining!  You can use them to serve all sorts of party foods.  Having a Halloween party?  Go ahead and fill them up with all those cute mini chocolate candies.  I mean vegetables!  Okay, how about a tray of vegetables for every two trays of candy?  Seems to me like all that healthiness would totally cancel out the evilness of the chocolate, right?  Deal.


They also make very convenient to go containers if you want to send your guests home with any extra food.  You can fit a decent amount of food in the deep compartments; just pop on the lid and you’re all set to travel.  If it’s hot food, the leftovers can even be reheated right in the tray!

Would you love to try out these trays for yourself?  Then enter to win!  One of my readers is going to receive 50 GO-GREEN eco-friendly, three-compartment, polypropylene food storage trays with coordinating lids!

Just use the Rafflecopter form below!  Good Luck!

xZubi Discs Review & Giveaway – Ends 10/3

xZubi LogoxZubi Mobile Phones.  Tablets.  Laptops.  Most of us spend a good portion of our day surrounded by portable devices such as these.  They offer us convenience and entertainment, and a lot people would find it quite difficult to part with them.  Unfortunately, these wonderful toys expose us to less than wonderful radiation.

If you’re worried that the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated by our favorite electronics are a potential health hazard, you’re not alone.  With the rise of mobile phone usage, much attention has been given to the topic.  While it has not yet been conclusively proven that there is a link between cell phones and cancer or other health problems, it’s widely agreed upon that more and better research is needed.  The World Health Organization/International Agency for Research on Cancer has has gone as far as to classify EMFs as possibly carcinogenic to humans.  Children are even more at risk than adults because they’re developing skulls and brains absorb more of the radiation.  I find it all very scary, and whether the risks are “proven” or not, I’d like to do what I can to prevent any problems.  So, what can you do to protect yourself and your family?  Use xZubi discs!

Packaways Reusable Plastic Storage Box Review


I have stuff–a lot of it.  I’m very skilled at acquiring things and not letting them go, so I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to organize my junk….err, belongings.  Today, I’m going to tell you a little about my newest tool for attempting to live a less cluttered life:  Packaways!


These classic style Packaways are collapsible, corrugated plastic boxes that are so durable that they can be filled, emptied, and knocked down hundreds of times.  Each box has two wipe away marking panels so you can easily identify the contents of the boxes and relabel them as they get reused.  They’re light and the built in handles make them easy to carry.  And as you can see in the picture, they stack neatly together even when you’re working with multiple sizes.
