Weantailer Spotlight-Eco Mom

In a market full of disposables, harmful chemicals and convenience it is sometimes extremely difficult to find your way to the good products. Thankfully there are concerned individuals who take it upon themselves and their roles as business leaders that do the research and help us create educated opninions on the products that are good for our families. We are head over heels in LOVE with ecomom! Not only are they offering the best, healthiest and coolest products on the market they are also giving us all a cause to support…just by shopping! With the help of David Arquette (who, by the looks of this picture, does all the heavy lifting) they are organizing & donating to help feed children in America. Cheers to you ecomom!!

Weantailer Spotlight- Monkey Bars

Since being in the ‘biz we have noticed what a huge difference a little spunk makes. Monkey Bars is our #1 example of this little business tip. Wicked owner + funky business = Monkey Bars in Alameda California! Here is our Q&A with Heather, the owner of Monkey Bars 1. What is your favorite kitchen accessory (besides Wean Green)? Hands down, I’m going with The Immersion Blender. I use mine all the time. Sauces, veggie purees, soups, you name it. Great for baby food too, and because we’ll be revisiting that stage in less than a year now, I’m keeping it handy for my homemade baby food (which then gets promptly popped into some wean cubes – naturally) 2. What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning? Well lately, it’s been my uncontrollable urge to pee, but before this pregnancy I’d have to say it’s the thought that I truly love what I do, and no matter what I look like each morning (or if I’ve even showered) I get to go to “work” and help people all day. This is really a tough one though, because we all have our crap days & if I didn’t have to pee or I wasn’t starving for breakfast, getting going in the morning can suck! My 6-y-o has become very adept at making his own breakfast, thus easing the pre school craziness. He knows how to use a toaster oven, and he’s got his own set of kid-friendly butter knives. That dude makes a mean PB&J. 3. If you weren’t doing what you’re doing, what would you like to do instead? Ironically, this is in the works. I love food. Eating it, cooking it, sharing it with friends and family. Cooking honestly relieves my stress at the end of the day. I’ve launched (well almost launched) my long awaited food blog! If I had my way though, I’d have a cooking show. It would be a cross between Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations” & Kathy Griffin’s “My Life on the D List”… Stay tuned 🙂 4. What is your favorite Wean Green size and why? I’m personally a pretty big fan of the Lunch Cubes. I think the first question I asked Melissa when we met was “ooo! do they come bigger?”… Again, I prefer these for grown-up/bigger kid stuff. When it comes to making baby food however, the 4 pack of cubes is the way to go. I’ve also managed to use these guys for my daily stashes of salad dressing & my at-work stash of prenatal vitamins. 5. Why do you sell glass? I’ve been a fan of glass since I can remember. I was raised in the microwave era, and even as a 7-y-o latchkey child, I knew something was wrong with putting plastic in the microwave. Now with glass, I rarely worry about temperature changes or staining. This is especially awesome for someone who hates doing dishes. Glass is so easy to clean! Plus, there’s the whole […]

Cloth Diaper Kids Can Use Glass Wean Cubes Too!

Cloth Diaper Kids carries more than cloth diapers!! I found out the hard way how important cloth diapers were!  The youngest weaner got fierce diaper rashes and I had no idea why.  Turns out the chemicals they add to the diapers are actually harmful on a poor babes skin. Another reason to use cloth diapers…really??  The environment does not need another diaper genie  baggie sitting in a landfill somewhere!!!! Okay, now that my rant is done I would like to introduce you to the newest Wean Cube retailer.  Isn’t it great?

Riva’s Eco Store is FABULOUS!

GORGEOUS new location for a Calgary favorite! Riva’s Eco Store has found its way to a huge new location in the center of Inglewood. My first encounter with Riva’s was a while back when I was searching for milk paint.  The staff was fabulous then and equally as  fabulous now! The new store has space to showcase ALL of their goods (including milk paints).  They have sorted the store into many sections including building, clothing, make up, house accessories, bedroom and a massive baby/kids section! I walked in at a perfect time to see the ENTIRE team in action! The staff was helping customers in every section, I even watched their make up expert help a lovely lady make some eco friendly make up choices. And of course a trip to Riva’s wouldn’t be complete without meeting Riva herself! Wow! Another amazing Calgary woman! We chatted about the benefits of glass and even touched on a rather controversial subject…microwaves:) It is clear to me what makes this store so great! Welcome to the Wean Green Team Riva & Co.! We are excited to see your shelves stocked with Wean Cubes!! If you are interested in joining Wean Green’s infamous list of retailers please contact us for more information!
