It’s a common question “where do I find every-day, locally manufactured clothing for kids?” I hear it all the time. And lucky for us, Triple Flip manufactures their stretch wear in Canada. It’s soft (great for kids with sensory issues), great quality, and fun designs have positive messages to make girls feel amazing in their clothes. My family is big fans of Triple Flip: mama likes the footprint and my twins love the clothing. This Canadian company also has a fun initiative for local families shopping for back-to-school. Bring well-loved, outgrown, clean Triple Flip clothing into our stores and all that clothing will be donated to women’s shelters and local charities. Plus, YOU will receive a 10% discount on your next purchase at Triple Flip. This program is called Designed To Grow Designed To Last and runs until early September (in store only).

Sponsored by: Nature’s Path Hosted by: Mommy Footprint

If you are travelling down the road to limiting GMOs (Genetically Modified Food), artificial dye, highly processed sugars, and for lack of better word ‘JUNK’ in your kid’s diet, you’ve probably already tried and fallen in love with Natures Path Organic and their EnviroKidz brand. Having moved my oldest child away from his favorite GMO (corn based) cereal this summer, I couldn’t have done it without Nature’s Path alternatives on hand. He has now transitioned away from these junky cereals and they won’t ever be making another appearance in our home. We keep Gorilla Munch on hand for occasional dry snacking and anyone wanting a quick bowl of cereal in the morning loves Koala Crisp.

Nature’s Path has earned the trust and respect of parents looking for Non-GMO Verified options, along with many gluten-free and organic products. We have also enjoyed Nature’s Path granola and bars for occasional convenient snacking so I’m excited for the lucky winner of this contest!

About EnviroKidz

MORE INFO ON THE GM APPLE

Back to the non-browning apple and why it needs to be stopped. Who wants a non-browning apple? Apple growers don’t want it. Consumers don’t want to buy it. But the GM apple could be approved this year. It would be the first genetically modified apple in the world and first GM fruit grown in Canada.

Consumers feel that a non-browning apple is deceptive – it will  look fresh when they are not. And because neither the company nor Health Canada has conducted animal feeding trials to test the safety of eating GM apples, we are relying on one company’s opinion that it’s safe.

We need to raise awareness and get petitions signed so that our Government doesn’t approve it. Spread the word! Across Canada we need your action and if you live in BC, we need five thousand signatures in hard copy form by May 6th. Print off a copy of this petition, make sure your complete address and postal code are recorded, and mail to the address listed at the base of the petition.

Jane Goodall’s Message of Hope

A very special opportunity was given to myself and son Angelo when Nature’s Path asked if we wanted to attend Jane Goodall’s lecture in Vancouver. My answer, in a heart beat was yes (!), and I’m most appreciative to Nature’s Path. This brand follows a beautiful manufacturing process, clean ingredient list and they are 3rd party GMO-free verified. Thank you for giving us an experience we’ll always remember. Here are the highlights from Jane Goodall’s lecture last week and fun contest details.

Jane entered the stage at Vancouver’s Orpheum theatre and my first thought was how much I love her ponytail. I have a new view of my own ponytail, with greying hair at the temples, as one to be worn with pride. My 10 year old son reported that she was a ‘comedian’ and he loved her chimpanzee stories and humour throughout the lecture. Don’t feel sad that you missed the opportunity because her Ted Talk contains many of these wonderful stories and information about how kids can be involved within her Roots and Shoots organization.

I felt it important to write about the experience because I left feeling hopeful. Jane Goodall has seen deforestation and destruction at the maximum degree and yet her lecture is one filled with hope. She talks about how we make decisions using only our brains and the environmental disconnect might be happening because we aren’t thinking with our brain and heart combined. We are such a clever species but we are destroying the only planet we have. Interesting that it’s empathy we teach children in school to combat bullying, and this emotion of connecting the brain and heart will also help our environment. Making small steps to connect children with nature, disconnecting them from electronic overload, and guiding their love for our earth is important. Jane’s quote “The greatest danger to our future is apathy.” ― she really lends to the fact that if kids don’t care about the world around them, they will do nothing to nurture or care for it.

Many large, global issues cause my brain to really shut down because of the enormity. Examples of this are terms like global warming, ocean, air, soil pollution and habitat loss. I’m not alone in feeling like these huge environmental problems are just too far out of reach for one person to help fix. It was amazing to hear Jane say she believes the small changes we control in our everyday lives do make a difference and are very important. Asking questions about things you don’t believe are right like factory farming and being proactive with engaging children with nature, unplugging, growing a garden, kindness, etc. These are all acts that can make a difference; what level is up to you, but participate with small ones because it helps. Jane’s message is one of hope. And it was so refreshing to hear in her 80 years of life, she looks to our children to continue her voyage to get the earth back and repair the damage we’ve inflicted.

Heading into Earth month, I feel her hope and will do all I can with spreading the message. As we stood up to leave the lecture, Jane suddenly came back to the microphone and told us to Google ‘Wounda’. Thank you to Nature’s Path for helping me remember the video she wanted us to watch which is about a chimpanzee named Wounda (meaning close to death) that is nursed back to health and released into a chimpanzee sanctuary. Grab your children and enjoy the magic at minute 3 between Jane and Wounda – it is amazing. I’ve embedded it for you to watch here:

In addition to giving me a voice to spread the word about Jane Goodall’s journey of hope, Nature’s Path offered MommyFootprint,  EcoBravo and Spokesmama a cereal prize package so we are teaming up for a really fun contest! My household loves and eats Nature’s Path granola and cereal  ~ does yours? We want to see your Nature’s Path breakfast.  To gain a contest entry, simply take a picture of your Nature’s Path breakfast and/or share the below graphic on Instagram and/or Twitter and include hashtag #Envirokidzbox. With each hashtag, you’ll be entered to win (feel free to enter daily). Here are my accounts to follow if you need contest reminders: Instagram and Twitter.

Thanks again to Nature’s Path for including Angelo and myself in this beautiful opportunity to hear Jane speak. I can’t help but believe this is another feather in Angelo’s wings to soar and fly with inspiration to help our environment. We will use the experience to give back.
