I received my Mom Discovery Box from Ecocentric Mom. Ecocentric Mom is a unique monthly product delivery service that focuses on healthy, natural, organic products exclusively for moms, moms-to-be, and babies. I was so excited to see the contents of my box and I wasn’t disappointed. I was impressed with the packaging, the products and the enclosed promotional materials.












Here’s a list of the fabulous items:

  • Greenbody Greenplanet Organic Hair Care shampoo and conditioner
  • Lauren Brook Cosmetiques Lip Glaze
  • Vaska Laundry Detergent samples
  • Naturally It’s Clean “Floors” samples
  • Natural Vitality Cherry Calm magnesium supplement
  • Orgain Organic Nutritional Shake
  • Tree Hugger All Natural Bubble Gum
  • Eat Cleaner Fruit & Vegetable Wipes
  • Coupons for the products enclosed
  • A pamphlet which contained a message from the founder and CEO of Ecocentric Mom as well as descriptions and coupon codes for each product. The back of the booklet featured tips from the Ecocentric Mom experts.

I received the box a week ago and have tried almost all the products. My favorite so far is the Greenbody Greenplanet Organic Hair Care shampoo and conditioner but everything stands up to the Ecocentric Mom promise:

We only work with thoroughly evaluated, mission-based brands that are committed to using the best ingredients to create products that respect people, animals, and the planet.

For only $17 and free shipping you too could have a different box of cool new green products delivered to your door each month.

I love chocolate. Period. So you can imagine my reaction when the awesome folks at Equal Exchange wanted me to review their new chocolate bars. They are a wonderful company, with a great mission and delicious products. I was honored.

The Product:

Equal Exchange recently announced the addition of two new chocolate bars: Organic Ecuador Dark Chocolate (65% cacao content) and Organic Chocolate Caramel Crunch with Sea Salt (55% cacao content). Both bars, like all Equal Exchange chocolates and cocoas, are fairly traded and organic from small-scale farmer co-operatives. Taking great care to select recipes with as few ingredients as possible, these bars are soy- and gluten-free, and the Ecuador bar is vegan.

The Reaction:

Both chocolate bars are savor-0n-the-tongue delicious. I made the mistake of offering my daughters a little taste of the Organic Chocolate Caramel Crunch with Sea Salt and never saw it again. I will be heading over to to order some more.

Equal Exchange is also giving My Green Side’s readers a coupon for $5 off a case of Equal Exchange chocolate at their webstore, Coupon code: chocolate5. It expires 2/28/11.

Like they say at Equal Exchange,

Together, we can learn about our food sources, challenge an unjust food industry and preserve our planet… Who’s in?
