Oopdoo – Group Gifting

Being a work at home professional it is always hard to celebrate my co-workers life happenings. I’ve had coworkers marry, have babies, and even move and trying to find a way to honor them remotely is a challenge. Also, a lot of my friends from Extraordinary Mothers live across the country. We are a tight knit group of women and we are there for each others ups and downs.

Recently we found out our dear from Amy from Coffee with the Mrs was having a baby. My virtual group of friends wanted to find a way to celebrate and congratulate her. It’s difficult to do on-line, our questions were:

How would we give one person money?

Who would buy the present and handle all of the shipping?

How would we personalize it so everyone is included?

Oopdoo was there to resolve all of our concerns. The “organizer” planned what was being gifted and sent out emails to everyone who may want to be included. Then you contribute however much you would like to the total pricing amount. Here is how it works:

Every step of the process I was notified via email, even when the recipient got their package! They have gifts for every occasion and are sure to make group gifting easier than it has ever been.  Here is Amy’s gift:

Simple Green Naturals Cleaning Products


Simple Greenbegan over thirty years ago when Bruce Fabrizio and his father developed a safer alternative to the regular (toxic) cleaning supplies of their day. Their innovative product began before people started to “think green” or to become “eco-friendly.” Millions of dollars have been spent to prove the safety of Simple Green products and I am glad that not only do they sell industrial products but they also sell consumer ones as well.

I received the Simple Green Naturals line which includes but is not limited to:

  • Dish washing liquid
  • Liquid Hand Soap
  • Multi-Surface Care
  • Bathroom Cleaner
  • Glass and Surface Care
  • Carpet care

Recently Simple Green’s Naturals line received the GREEN SEAL, GS-8 CERTIFICATION. This certification is a huge honor for Simple Green, what does it mean?

Green Seal is a twenty-year-old non-profit organization devoted to environmental standard setting, product certification, and public education. Green Seal’s mission is to work towards environmental sustainability by identifying and promoting environmentally responsible products, purchasing, and production… The Green Seal-certified Simple Green Naturals products have met product-specific performance requirements (i.e., they actually must work!), product-specific health and environmental requirements (i.e., no carcinogens, no reproductive toxins, not a cause of skin sensitization, must be biodegradable, non-toxic to aquatic organisms, etc.,) and specific labeling requirements within the use instructions, disposal statements, etc.  Simple Green Press Release March 16, 2009

Simple Green products are non-toxic, have full ingredient disclosure, scents are made with 100% natural essential oils & plant extracts, and the bottles are 100% recyclable. This is the type of product I want to use around my children and to always keep stocked in my cabinets!
