Full Circle Gift Basket

I’m always on the lookout for a some great ideas for Christmas presents.  I’m also a huge fan Full Circle products, so I’ve come up with a great lineup you can use for yourself or include in a basket for the green person in your life.

Capture3 150x150 Full Circle Gift BasketThe first item I think would be a great fit is the Come Clean natural cleaning set.  This make-your-own natural cleaning set comes with two spray bottles, a mixing container, a microfiber cloth and Clean House Green House the complete guide to making a quick and easy transition to green cleaning. With ingredients you can find at your local grocery store, you can clean your kitchen, bath, glass, upholstery, wood, furniture, silver, pet stains and even your car!  We have one of these ourselves, and it is super easy to use.  Bill couldn’t believe how easy it was to make your own cleaning solutions!  I love that the book that comes with it tells you step by step too how exactly to make this.  $25 for full set; $12 for single bottle

Capture4 300x149 Full Circle Gift BasketThe Scoop sponge is arched to minimize surface contact. You know how sponges always stay wet on the bottom and get that distinctive ‘sponge smell’? Not this one! It dries fast to prevent bacteria build-up. And even though it is plant-based (and 100% biodegradable) it is long –lasting and can be cleaned in the dishwasher, microwave or by boiling. I’ve had mine for several months and it still works great (and doesn’t smell!).  $4.50/pack of 2

Capture5 150x150 Full Circle Gift BasketThe ring veggie brush is made with renewable bamboo and our own unique blend of natural plant –based fibers and recycled plastic bristles. It’s great for scrubbing everything from apples to zucchini! $4.50

Capture6 157x300 Full Circle Gift BasketThe Crystal Clear glass cleaner has a layers upon layers of gentle sponge so it will fit into narrow glasses and clean straight to the bottom. The layers of sponge are also great for taking lipstick stains off the rim of wine glasses. It is made from biodegradable cellulose sponge, recycled plastic and renewable bamboo and it stands up on its own eliminating the need for bulky storage containers and allowing it to air dry. $8

Capture7 128x300 Full Circle Gift BasketThe Reach bottle brush is made from recycled plastic and recycled stainless steel, this brush is perfect for baby bottles. It cleans inside and out at the same time (germs can cling to the outside too!) and is the perfect size for bottles all shapes and sizes. It has a flexible, ergonomic handle and loops over the faucet for easy storage. Granted, I don’t have bottle in my house anymore.  However, this works great on sippy cups!  My husband swears by it.  (He’s the dishes person in my house).  $5.99

Capture8 Full Circle Gift BasketThe Stick ‘em magnet towel is my absolute favorite.  All I know is that I can never find a towel when I need one.  The Stick ‘em magnet towel stays stuck to the front of your fridge, or when cooking, the front of your stovetop so you always know where it is.  Best of all, it is super soft and really absorbent. It’s one of my favorite new products. $8.99

Wouldn’t a basket with all of these products make a great present this year?

Full Circle: Part 2

As promised, here are a few more of the Full Circle products you should check out:

ring vegetable brush Full Circle:  Part 2The vegetable brush Full Circle offers is pretty cool looking. It is part bamboo handle and part natural and recycled bristles. The blend in tough enough to remove dirt. However, it won’t bruise your fruit or vegetables.  Not only is it pretty cute looking, but it also can double as a nail brush!

flip loofah spoonge Full Circle:  Part 2Another of my favorite Full Circle products has to be the loofah sponge.  It is a sponge on one side and a scrubber on the other.  It works on pretty much everything!  It expends to twice it’s size when it’s wet and is completely biodegradable.  The cellulose is naturally absorbent and resists bacteria too.
scoop sponge Full Circle:  Part 2This arch shaped sponge will rock your kitchen. It dries super fast and will keep the nasty bacteria off your countertops.  It is naturally absorbent and is the perfect shape to scoop crumbs off your countertop of even your kitchen table.  It air dries naturally and is 100% biodegradable.  It also can be cleaned in the dishwasher (which I love!) or by boiling in water.

squeeze Cellulose%20Cloths Full Circle:  Part 2Ever try and reuse a paper towel?  We all know how well that usually turns out.  Instead, conserve natural resources and try out these cellulose clothes.  They can be used over and over and over again.  They are naturally absorbent and resists bacteria.  They are awesome.  They don’t rip when wet, and they work quite well (we did a through testing here).  You can freshen them in the dishwasher or by boiling in hot water.

IntheBuff pic Full Circle:  Part 2Last but not least, you have the Full Circle dish towels. Can I tell you how much I love these? They are the softest dishtowels I’ve ever owned.  They are 70% bamboo (which makes these so soft and absorbent) and 30% cotton (which makes them durable and comfy).  They are super absorbent and quick drying too.  I’ve even used them to dry off our slide and swings outside after an evening rain.  Soaked everything right up, and the kids could have their fun.

I’ve grown to really like all of the Full Circle products.  I love that I’m helping keep garbage out of the landfills when I use their products.  I love that I’m making the world a better place for my kids.  I also love how useful and trendy their products are — you’ll happily leave them out on your counters!

IgnaFire Chocolates

You know you are about to eat some good chocolate when you see the following warnings:

  • This chocolate has plenty of texture. It is not slippery smooth like processed chocolate.
  • This chocolate is full of complex flavors that explode in your mouth. The flavor profile has not been muted by a commercial process.
  • This chocolate has a natural look, of course. It is not shiny.
  • Sorry, but our experience is that after indulging in some of our chocolates, you might never be able to fully enjoy a traditional candy bar again.

What chocolate am I talking about? IgnaFire Chocolates are some of the best chocolate you will ever eat.  If you are craving chocolate, one piece of this will solve your craving, because it is that good.  IgnaFire chocolates are made straight from the cacao bean.  There is no commercial processing and no added cacao butter.  They don’t use the extensive heating and industrial processing that a lot of other chocolate placs do.  This keeps all the healthful flavanols and antioxidants that occur naturally in the bean along with all its natural flavor.  I am not kidding when I say one on these pieces of chocolate will curve any sugar you have.  Since I am lactose intolerant, my favorite part of this chocolate is that no dairy products are added!  This also works well for vegans too!  When you first bite into a piece of this chocolate, it does have a different texture.  However, the chocolate really does seem to melt in your mouth.

Besides having awesome chocolates, the company that makes IgnaFire Chocolates is concerned about the environment.  What better gift than one that is environmentally friendly to the planet?  The packaging is completely compostable.  The boxes the chocolate comes in are handmade paper with no glue.  This allows the boxes to be used over and over again.  The boxes also are compostable.  The printed information that is included with your chocolate is printed on dissolvable potato paper.  That literally just washes down your kitchen sink.  Lastly, the cellulose bag that the chocolate is in will compost in 45-60 days.  I have never seen a company so carrying about the environment.

Ignafire Chocolates will be some of the best chocolates you will ever eat.  I highly recommend picking up box for yourself (if not others) and enjoy!  Great chocolate, saving the environment, how can you go wrong?
