How to Survive A Beach Outing With Kids & American made sources for beach gear

My kiddos' favorite summer activity is going to the beach. Fresh water, salt water, they don't care. As long as they can get wet and play in sand, all is right in their world.  They get along at the beach, and they get tired at the beach (early bed time, yeah!), so all is right in my world there too.  This is why we go to the beach several times a week in the summer, and have for years. I can look back at times (oh, and there were many) when a beach outing was a complete disaster. Times when I...

A Story You’ll Want to Hear – from Neat-Os Founder – Dedicated to American-made

One of my favorite things about USA Love List is getting to know the entrepreneurs on the front lines of rebuilding American manufacturing. For growing businesses, making their products in the U.S. is a choice, a commitment, and it is a challenge.  Remember Neat-Os? We featured Neat-Os reusable snack bags last spring, and I knew that recently they had been struggling to find a new manufacturer.  I was so pleased this week to get a note from Neat-Os founder Rachel Ostroy reporting that she had found a new source for her product, close to home in Los Angeles. I had read...

Vlog, Review & Giveaway: Earth-friendly Family Finds, Made in USA

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Afm6QGzq_iE] I recently received a new American-made product called Washdrops that is designed to be a more environmentally friendly way to wash your car at home.  It arrived right around Earth Day and it got me thinking about how many wonderful American-made products our family uses to help us be a little more green. I decided to try making my first vlog, or video blog post, so I could show you first-hand some of the USA-made things we love because they help us care for the Earth. Some of the products I shared in the video we have written about, such as SplashTags, Goodbyns *Goodbyns are no longer made in the USA* and Neat-os in the kitchen. Bonus points for those with eagle eyes to spot other made in USA products around the house such as Fiestaware, a KitchenAid Mixer, and an Eraselet.  Outside, I shared our compost bin, our drip irrigation system, our fuel-efficient Winnebago/Itasca motorhome, and then finally, I showed how easy it is to use Washdrops, even on a chilly windy day. Washdrops Review I really enjoyed reviewing this product because I usually put off washing the cars or the motorhome until it is a perfect day – and then I don't feel like doing the work on a perfect day!  But I absolutely had to film this vlog on a certain afternoon and it was...

Made in USA Review & Giveaway: Neat-os Reusable Baggies

I've got my reusable grocery sacks. I try to compost. But there is still a lot of plastic in my kitchen so I was very excited to try Neat-os (pronounced neat-ohs), a new line of reusable baggies that are good for the environment, safe for your family, and made in the USA.  Since arriving in my house, they have been in constant use storing lunchbox items, leftovers, and produce, but the Neat-os website lists lots of creative uses beyond lunch and fridge.  Neat-os are made in Southern California.  [Disclosure: USA Love List received this product unconditionally for review purposes. Our opinions are always our own, and we aim to write fair and balanced reviews to promote only the very best of American-made products.] Neat-os founder, Rachel Ostroy was inspired by her grandpa who never threw away a rubber band or a paper clip but also by her husband who rebelled against the idea of washing out plastic baggies.  She set out to find reusable bags that were easy to tuck into lunches, easy to clean, see through, and not made in China, but ended up developing her own colorful line of earth-friendly, American-made products. I will admit, I was a little skeptical when I first received the set of bags – one each in snack size, sandwich size, and gallon size.  They are made of a natural colored linen-like...
