Its time for Cheers and Jeers!

First, the Cheers! =)

This is a website that I have begun frequenting more and more lately. It is just my size/shade of green and have enjoyed the posts a great deal. PLUS it is updated really frequently, so there is always something new to read about. Check it out! There are lots of fun give-aways you can try to win too! http://www.greenandcleanmom.org/

Now for the Jeers! =/

I've been a huge fan of Jamba Juice since I discovered one in the neighborhood around my office. I much prefer to drink my lunch in the summer time than to eat it so it is nice to have a place like this that offers nutritious options with enough calories to be called lunch. The problem? I got my drink this morning and noticed the lid had a #6 (BPA containing plastic!)recycling symbol on it. I thought, 'oh its just the lid' then I turned the cup upside down and what do I see #6! YIKES! Here I am trying to limit my baby's exposure to BPA and I find it in the unlikeliest of places. Especially considering that my cup also read "jambaism#5...Your body is a temple, littering is strictly prohibited." I immediately went to their website and sent them a message saying I would no longer be patronizing their store until they changed their cups. Of course I'm sure they will get back to be saying that the cups are safe according to the FDA, but I'll let you know. I'm giving you their website here so you can also tell them to change their cups and lids if you feel so inclined. http://www.jambajuice.com/#/contact_us/

Why not bring your own cup? Lots of places even give a discount if you do.
