Buncha Farmers started in the summer of 2006 as a group of farmers and local artisans from the Greater Toronto Region, Durham Region and Region of York in Central Ontario. Buncha Farmers is "committed to the highest standards of quality,satisfaction and fair pricing." I am really loving the stain remover and soap that they sent me to try--and a few readers will too!!!

Raffi is a super awesome children's singing sensation! He does a lot of work in support of 'child honoring' and has great messages within his catchy tunes! Our personal favorite in this household is "Baby Beluga!" 2 Winners will receive copies of some great Raffi CD's to dance with their kiddos at home!

Since 1979, DRUIDE has followed a charter built on ecological values such as respect for the individual and the environment, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of life on earth. We love companies that love the earth! Druide has provided a Citronella kit to help keep biting insects from bugging you this summer and a full-size tube of Goat's Milk Lotion for a reader to win!! This stuff is wonderful smelling and feeling!

Nellie's All Natural is a line of products that are really awesome in a super simple way! The products are hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly, specializing in kitchen and laundry cleaning products. One winner will get a bag of wash to try! I'm loving mine. It is unscented and does not bubble since it is all-natural, but leave laundry clean without overbearing perfumes.

  EcoParent Magazine is a Canadian-based, family-owned magazine that is going to be wildly popular in the coming months, I can just feel it! It is a relatively new publication and I had the distinct pleasure of getting a subscription to peruse and enjoy--again, LOVING IT! Who doesn't love a magazine that talks about cloth diapering!? Sam at EcoParent has kindly offered a subscription for one-year to a lucky winner!  

Lunapads are a pretty way to pad your period! They are WAY more healthy for a woman to use than bleached, chemical-ridden traditional disposable pads and tampons and they are more environmentally and economically efficient as well! Oh, and did I mention they are a proudly Canadian company? Lunapads has great customer service and a HUGE selection! One winner will get to try them!

OwOOly Love is run by a super sweet WAHM named Amy. She is really good with wool creations and she pretty much rocks! We have a pair of longies that were upcycled from a wool sweater and they are amazing! Amy has generously obliged to sponsor something woolly and lovely for one winner!

The Laundry Tarts is a super cool Canadian business that offers decadent smelling laundry detergent and stripping agents! A little Key Lime Pie to perk up diaper duty today? Yes, please! Fun, fresh, and fabulous, the Laundry Tarts are dedicated to environmental awareness too! One winner will win a yummy smellin' bag of detergent from these great gals! 

Heather at Hippeez Cloth Diapers is the WAHM behind the label and is another super talented Canadian shopowner participating in the Canada Day Extravaganza! Heather is the maker of super easy-to-put-on flannel fitted cloth diapers and fleece covers. She is really personable and has such an expansive variety of prints!! One lucky winner will something fluffy from Hippeez! 

  Monkey Doodlez® is a proudly Canadian manufacturer that is near and dear to me, as I've become closer to them as a blogger and have gotten to know Kelly and Cheryl--the women behind the name! Monkey Doodlez® offers a wide range of diapering goodies not to mention fun contests on their blog and fan appreciation prizes on Facebook! The customer service and feedback with this company is amazing and the products are high-quality at an affordable price! One winner will be receiving some love from Monkey Doodlez®!

  Woolies Dryer Balls = Lifesavers in the laundry room. I have 4 of these and they are my FAVORITE! I've tried other felted balls and they have left me picking fibers off of my clean diaper inserts and other laundry for weeks now--unraveling and making me angry! Woolies are felted at least 4 times and are giant! They are just amazing. Shauntha is super friendly to work with, she's the Canadian shopowner behind these fantastic dryer balls! One reader will win a set of 4 dryer balls to become smitten with!

  1. There are 2 links in the tweet making it too long to send. I had to remove the second link in order to be able to tweet that.

  2. Ok, I know what's happening. The link has to be removed from the original Rafflecopter form since Rafflecopter adds the link AUTOMATICALLY and it uses the address of the site that you're entering on. That's why I had two different links.

  3. I am a new folower via GFC. I really like your blog. Check mine out sometime if you want.
