a greener costco??

This weekend we hit the local Costco after church to pick up a few things. I was impressed by how they increased their organic selections. I found several products that I normally purchase at the grocery store in bulk and cheaper at Cosco. Here are some of my green finds!

Kashi Blueberry Waffles

A HUGE bag of frozen mixed organic berries


Strawberry "milkshakes" according to Charlie!
I also got the largest bag of frozen organic green beans that you have ever seen , four cartons of organic/free range chicken broth, organic poptarts and Charlie and Gracie's favorite purchase..... the gigantic tub of organic vanilla animal crackers that are shaped like Winnie the Pooh and Friends!

Our Costco in Atlanta has also started carrying organic meats. Finally stores are catching on!

Amy-

That's good to know! I didn't check out the meat section... I wonder if Kennesaw is that hip yet??

Costco is great about having a few organic finds. I've even found organic veggies in the frozen section. Recently, my sis found some organic baby clothing up to 24mos. from Agabang-ALSO, we get organic V-8 from there too! Oh YEAH, have you seen the Organic Batter Blaster! OMG- look for it next time usually with the diary products...pancake batter in a can (like whip cream). It's actually tasty. Great for camping trips. I'm from CA. so it may vary store to store. I haven't seen the animal cookies- so I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled. thx.

Did you see Costco has ECHO laundry detergent too? I just noticed that.

lamama-
I am so intrigued about the batter blaster... I totally will be on the look out!

Melissa- we buy the ecos detergent there. its magnolia and lily scented, it smells yummy but is still super sensitive!

Stephanie emailed me about donating a copy of ECO BABIES WEAR GREEN - I'd love to but I tried to email her back and it keeps getting bounced back to me. How can I get in touch with her?

Thanks, michelle@ubwb.com

Love the site!!!

I'm excited about seeing new Organic options in stores. Target even serves organic yogurt and milk with kids meals.
