Happy Friday SafeParents! Life has been busy for us (and hormonal… thank you pregnancy) but before the weekend came I wanted to share some finds with you that I’ve bookmarked this week.
- Grist.org: A Review of Six Green laundry Detergents: I found this article this week and was thrilled to see such a well put together review of detergents. I know Statia has been using Charlie’s Soap with some success lately but I’ve wondered about the performance of the other various brands out there. Grist.org’s article covers their stain removal strength, scents and value of each. Their final pick was Seventh Generation Free & Clear but see how the others measured up.
- Safer States: I found this site via Twitter and I am so glad I did. This site is a great way to keep up on what’s happening across the country regarding chemical regulations and environmental health. They post a regular blog and have a list of Action Alerts to make it easy for you to get involved with the legislation and communication with the people who help make these decisions. This one is on my permanent RSS feed reading list.
- LovelySafeMama.com Giveaway this week: For the moms – Don’t forget to head over to LovelyMama and enter the Alima Pure Spring Collection giveaway we’re running until march 4th. 3 lucky winners will get full collection sample sets! Woo!
Blog Spotlight!: I decided that us safety and green bloggers need to pimp each other more. There are so many GREAT blogs out there doing research and product testing to help all of us live a better life. If I could single-handedly do it all I would, but I can’t. So I am eternally grateful for all the hard work other mom bloggers do for us. Today’s spotlight goes to Cate and the bloggers from Nature’s Child Blog. Almost every day she publishes a thorough, heartfelt and poignant blog post about things that affect our kids and us. She’s very passionate about her subjects and I love her approach. I love stopping by her blog to read what she has to say and I learn something from her every time I read her.

Hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend!
