Bambootiful is ecoTOOLS

The ecoTOOLS Gentle Cleansing Natural Bath & Shower Mitt ($2.99) both exfoliates and cleanses with the ease of slipping the mitt on a hand, giving a good ole’ scrub down in a matter of seconds. The Bamboo Bristle Bath Brush ($5.99) also will make a busy mother’s life easier by paying close attention to the harder-to-reach places that are often overlooked. And for those tired feet at the end of the day, nothing is more indulgent than the Exfoliating and Smoothing Bamboo Foot File ($1.99), which feels like a spa pedicure--without the cost or hassle!

ecoTOOLS makes it easier for families to “go green” by using recycled paper, sustainable materials, and offering a simple idea on the tag for the people who want to help the cause. ecoTOOLS understands that with small steps, families can make a big difference without compromising their quality of life. Busy moms can feel better about buying the products knowing that 1 percent of ecoTOOLS annual sales will be donated to the 1% For The Planet organization. Businesses are joining together to leverage their resources to create a healthier planet for everyone.

ecoTOOLS products can be found at select Walgreens, Kmart and Ulta stores, or visit to locate a store near you.

Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce

Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce, when us Mommies think of this sauce all we think about is "mmmmmm". We were all completely impressed at the quality and the taste of this delicious sauce.

Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce can be used on all sorts of food, from chicken to steak, hamburger even fish. Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is in a class by itself. It is more than a steak sauce, because of its unique flavor and the variety of uses. You can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes. Experience the Taste!

Along with our All Purpose Sauce we
have expanded our product line to include BBQ Sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy
All Purpose Sauce
. With our fully automated bottling line we also have the
capability of producing Private Label products
for stores or restaurants.

All Shanda could say was YUMMY!
