Once again I am confronted with these questions: Is technology always for the best? Are their products for our benefit or just to make a few billion dollars out of us this year?
Do companies put as it risk with dangerous products on purpose or is it just inadvertently?
I don't have all the answers but I have decided to keep the "?" on everything I will buy from now on. Many times, not even the products sold at a Health Food Store are really that safe.
Like I always repeat to my readers and viewers: "WE NEED TO TAKE CONTROL OF OUR LIFE AND OUR MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS". I know! I Know! where do we get the right information to make informed decisions????!!(&^ This my friend, is not an easy task, but we have to put our heart and commitment into it.
I have started my blogs with this purpose, sharing the information I found most appropriate at a certain point in my life. Believe me! My search and my walk on the information rally will not be stopping anytime soon.
One of the BEST places for great information is "THE SOFT LANDING". Its owners are part of family committed to keep a close relation with their customers needs, and an even closer relation with its vendors. All products are carefully reviewed, not only at the beginning of their purchasing contracts, but regularly throughout their business relation. If they don't comply with the any of their product safety standards, they are out the door!
The Soft Landing, has been focused on assuring parents that the products purchased through them are BPA and PVC free. The best of it all is that they share all their research results through their blog. It has become my little big healthy bible!
Now another big thing right now is their BIGG BOTTLE SWAP! I already talked about it, but is SOOOOO WORTH IT! If you have a SIGG Water Bottle, you should be aware that SIGG Bottles are lined with BPA. It has not yet been proven to leach, but hey! how safe is that BPA thing in my family's water bottles either way??
The good news is that with the Bigg Bottle Swap, you can send your old Aluminum BPA lined SIGG Watter Bottles to The Soft Landing. They will be sending you a 30% coupon toward a Clean Fun and Safe Stainless Steel Water Bottle (from any of the participating vendors). The Soft Landing will even recycle your old SIGG bottle for you.
If you don't have a SIGG Bottle, but you have an Aluminum water bottle, there is also a 20% coupon that could work in your favor.
Check The Soft Landing site as well as the BIGG Bottle Swap. The information is well worth to read, use and share!
Don't forget to mention ChicMommyUSA. Who knows! you may get a surprise!

WOW!! I simply did not know!!!!
We have been talking for a while on the importance of avoiding BPA products and it just so happen that one of the things we thought were a good substitute for regular plastic water bottles is also leaching BPA into our water.
When I was shopping around for Water Bottles for my family I saw many options, some of them Aluminum some of them Stainless Steel. The prices will vary but they were not cheap at all. Don't get me wrong! The investment is worth it in the long run. I have not bought plastic water bottles in a while and I can see the difference in my recycling bin and in my wallet!
Anyway! Point is: Sigg Aluminum bottles have BPA. I am sure, this was not their intention, but they are! Besides, Aluminum toxicity "has been linked to alzheimer's disease, kidney and liver problems, memory loss and osteoporosis."
The GOOD NEWS! My favorite BPA FREE Products Company: The Soft Landing has started a fantastic campaign to help you reduce your losses on getting a SIGG bottle for your family. The Soft Landing is sponsoring THE BIGG BOTTLE SWAP.
Yes, it is as you read it, but here are the details in how the BIGG BOTTLE SWAP works:
Here's the deal:
- You return your BPA-lined SIGG bottle(s) to us at The Soft Landing
- Once we get your bottle(s), they'll send you a unique discount code for 30% off the purchase of a new stainless steel bottle from participating manufacturers
- Order your new bottle(s) at www.thesoftlanding.com from one of seven great brands - all clean, non-leaching and BPA-free
- The Soft Landing will take care of recycling all unwanted SIGG bottles returned to us
- Offer open to customers worldwide
- Complete the form provided at The Soft Landing and let us know in the comments section that you will not be returning a SIGG bottle
- They'll send you a unique discount code for 20% off the purchase of a new stainless steel bottle from participating manufacturers
- Order your new bottle(s) at www.thesoftlanding.com from one of seven great brands - all clean, non-leaching and BPA-fre.
I hope this information is useful and that you can obtain a well deserved discount in substituting BPA leaching products for your health and your family's well being.
Please mention you got this info from CHIC MOMMY, who knows! may be you will get a SURPRISE!
Many blessings and happy healing thoughts to everyone!

This past Friday we had a wonderful hour at MOMTV with Dr. Ted Herrmann, D.M.D. He is a super fun Holistic Dentist from the Miami area whom I have had the pleasure to meet.
After starting looking for holistic practitioners in our area, I came across his Practice. Let me tell you! He is my kind of Doc! As I had mentioned before, what I loved the most was his approach to my health as a WHOLE and not just as Mouth full of teeth = $$$. Since I stepped into his office I felt at peace, received by happy friendly staff, and guided by the hand (almost literally) through the process of my exam and treatment. I have learned more about my dental care in 3 weeks that what I had in 35 years!
I invite you to watch at least part of his talk on my show Holistic Living at MOMTV. He shared so much information that it is worth every minute!
If you are looking for his info, you can see his website: www.assureasmile.com
If you are not in Miami and are looking for a reliable referral to a Holistic Dentist please referred to the Holistic Dental Association, they have a Member Search that will help identify the closest Dentist to you.
Great Health to Everyone and many Blessings,
