When kids are around its time to clean green

One thing that we’ve made progress on in this world is going green. It’s the buzz terms of the last five years. You’ve heard it from Oprah to the nightly news and unless you’ve got a kid or a pet most likely you’re still cleaning your house/apartment with harsh stuff – and believe sometimes that’s the only thing that will get the job done – but nowadays there is other options…. We’ve been using a combo of bother Dapple and Seven Generation products in our home since Kiddo was born.

A little while ago during Spring Cleaning my wife was stressed with childcare, work, and everything else she does and we decided to call in the heavy hitters at Keep Your Home Clean [Link] – they’ve like the green clean crew.  Between the website, facebook page, and twitter feeds they’re not only selling a service (which by the way is great) but they’re also putting out there resources and tips of how to bring green cleaning into your own home.

Living in the city is awesome for many things but finding quality help sometimes is tough.  Marzena the owner of Keep Your Home Clean and I were introduced on twitter and we had been having a dialog about what we do around the house to keep it clean and really it was about kid friendly clean.  I know my wife had put some efforts into being kid friendly but I wasnt sure just how much until we had the Keep Your Home Clean team come in and do a once over before a visit from my mother in law. The team cleaned house literally – it was spotless and well worth the money. We’ve used the service since that first time as well.

Comfort that Marc was able to play right away after a room was done instead of waiting for fumes or other things to clear out was so great (since we have very little room for him to play in normally its hard to stay out of rooms). Because we really thought the job they did was fantastic I’m offering one lucky MANHATTAN resident a chance to win an 8 hour blog with Keep your home clean.

Putumayo Kids Celebrates Rock & Roll Playground CD release with Free Concert – June 19th

PUTUMAYO KIDS CELEBRATES THE RELEASE OF ROCK & ROLL PLAYGROUND WITH CONCERT BY FEATURED ARTIST STARFISH ON JUNE 19th

Rock & Roll Playground CD Due Out June 29th [Amazon]

Award-winning children’s music label Putumayo Kids will celebrate the June 29th release of its newest CD, Rock & Roll Playground [More Information], with a concert by featured artist StarFish June 19 at the Scholastic Auditorium.

The five life-long musicians from New Jersey known as StarFish are featured on Rock & Roll Playground in “The StarFish Stomp.“ Inspired by good old-fashioned classic rock, the band gives parents the opportunity to share a real rock concert experience with their children. According to Cookie Magazine, they “continue Jersey’s tradition of“totally boss rock acts. Nothing about any of it screams ‘kids’ music.’ Yet the same fans who dance to Dora the Explorer somehow rock out to StarFish too.”

Putumayo Kids will also host an online “Air Guitar Video Contest,” beginning June 15th and running through August 1st. Parents can visit www.putumayokids.com to submit videos of their children playing air guitar to “The Starfish Stomp” for the chance to win an in-home concert with Ray Leone, the founder and lead guitarist of StarFish. A free mp3 download of the song will be available on the website. Second and third place winners will receive a prize package of five Putumayo Kids CDs.

Rock & Roll Playground is a tribute to the early history of rock ‘n’ roll and features music by a stellar group of established and up-and-coming artists, from Grammyâ Award winners Dan Zanes and Friends to rockabilly royalty Rosie Flores. Widely recognized as one of the most innovative children’s music labels in the United States, the award-winning Putumayo Kids is committed to introducing children to different cultures through fun, upbeat collections of music from around the world.
