Tiny Revolutionary

We were recently introduced to this AMAZING line of children's clothing. Tiny Revolutionary is small kids clothing company on a BIG mission to make the world a kinder, more peaceful place by creating super cool, socially conscious children's clothing with messages of Peace, Hope, Love & Equality. Their clothes are 100% Sweatshop Free, Earth Friendly & as soft as the children who wear them. They also donate $1 from the sale of each of their Tee's to non-profit partners who are saving the lives of children all across the world. We also especially like this company because they sponsored "The Business of Being Born" film, a film we all truly found inspirational.
I browsed through several of their products and found children's shirts with quotes such as "I'll Change the World Someday" and "Be the Change You Want to See in the World" and "another one of my favorites, "A Child Without Courage is Like a Night Without Stars."
I emailed Breeanne who is one of the owners to compliment her on her company and tell her how much I appreciated the products she has created and the mission behind their company. She responded immediately and created a special coupon code for the Barefoot Mamas' members. All of our members can enter the coupon code: BAREFOOT upon checkout and you will receive $10 off of your entire order!!! We are so excited about this gracious opportunity and encourage you to visit their website and check out their products.

Is my shampoo safe???

We have recently been introduced to a great website that answers many of our questions regarding beauty/bath products and the ingredients in them.

"Skin Deep is a safety guide to cosmetics and personal care products brought to you by researchers at the Environmental Working Group. Skin Deep pairs ingredients in more than 25,000 products against 50 definitive toxicity and regulatory databases, making it the largest integrated data resource of its kind. Why did a small nonprofit take on such a big project? Because the FDA doesn't require companies to test their own products for safety."

You can type in a product, ingredient or company name into their search engine and it will give you a "hazard score" and display a "score key." Each product will be evaluated with an explanation of all its ingredients and the concerns/risk factors. This is a great resource to share with friends and family and learn more about the ingredients in your products.
