VentureGirls - Raising Entrepreneurial Girls To Be Tomorrow’s Leaders [Book Giveaway]


According to experts, young children are naturally brilliant at entrepreneurial skills, but far too often that genius is snuffed out. Their bold, imaginative powers are socialized-out by peer pressure and educated-out by a system designed to create the boundaries valued by the old world, not the new.

What if that didn’t happen to your kid…or any kid? What if there was a window in a child’s life when just the right dose of learning at the just right time could produce kids whose gifts were available for the rest of their lives? What could this new kind of kid—an un-diminished kid—become?

Keep Your Child's Lunch Healthy With a Non-toxic Lunchbox [Giveaway]


So, we’ve been trying to stay away from plastic food containers for quite a while now. We store all our leftovers in glass containers (even in the freezer in tempered glass or glass specifically labeled for freezing), and have migrated to stainless steel lunch boxes and water bottles.
 
Why? Because plastic is poisoning our bodies and oceans. Doctors and researchers have linked chemicals in plastics, such as BPA (bisphenol-A) and phthalates, in numerous studies to hormone and thyroid problems, behavior issues, obesity, cancer, diabetes, asthma, even kidney and heart conditions. Here's what you can do.
