Equal Exchange Single Serve Recyclable Coffee Cups {Contest & Discount too!}

I drink coffee from my Keurig almost every single day. I do use the reusable filter most of the time with my ground packaged coffee, but I’ll admit that I do use Kcups too. They are just too convenient and come in such yummy flavors. A little guilt each time I throw it away? Yes.

Introducing Equal Exchange’s single serve coffee cups with a recyclable #5 plastic cup, aluminum lid and an 88% compostable filter. But wait, it gets even better. They are also Fair Trade and Organic…as most Equal Exchange products are! Are you as excited as I am?!


Now I can feel better about my morning coffee. We’re helping out the small farmers, while reducing the environmental impact that many of those other cups bring. No more guilt!

Comes in three delicious flavors ~ Organic Breakfast Blend, Organic French Roast, Organic Unwind Decaf. I’m loving the breakfast blend and french roast to start out my day. I’ll drink the decaf in the afternoons sometimes or let C’Man have a mug of it…my little twelve year old coffee drinker! What did I start?

We think they really DO taste good! :)


Now until November 17th Mambo Sprouts if running a contest for Equal Exchange on their site.

Keep Hydrated #DrinkDripDrop

“Dehydration is a hidden cause of ailments like fatigue, headache, stress, and lack of focus.”

Drip Drop

We try to drink a lot of water around my house. Each member of our family has their own water bottle and they are constantly filled, day and night. This is a good thing, but the kids do complain sometimes that they want something different. I like the idea of Drip Drop because it brings in a little flavor and has added benefits too.

Developed by a Mayo-trained family physician, DripDrop contains a golden ratio of ingredients – including sodium, sugars and potassium –which absorb quickly and help you recover faster than any other hydration product on the market. In fact, DripDrop has been shown to hydrate 34% faster than water alone, and 20% faster than a sports drink.

I’ll admit to you that when our kids are sick, we go out and buy Gatorade for them. Listen to this though…

Drip Drop has 25% more electrolytes than pediatric drinks

Contains 2-3 times more electrolytes than sports drinks

Has 50% less sugar than sports drinks…and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.


My kids really like the Berry flavor we received. Comes in Lemon too! C’Man was the first to try and P’Diddy had to have his own glass after tasting his brothers. I love the fact they come in single packets that don’t take up much room or can be thrown in my purse for on the go if needed.

Find Drip Drop at leading pharmacies like Walgreens, CVS and HEB. Here is a $2 off coupon!

Connect with Drip Drop on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Could you use a new idea to help your family stay hydrated and healthy?

Goodbye Beach! Hello Mountains! {Starbucks Giveaway for 3!}

BIG news here at Crunchy Beach Mama. My family has sailed away from the ocean and landed at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.


This was my last walk at the beach…boy was it hard to leave.

But do you know what? Every morning I now wake up and look out my bedroom window to this…

mountain view

Seriously, washing the dishes, writing a post, I have clear mountains as my view. I am blessed!

Does this mean anything different for my blog? Probably not. Just a new look to confuse you a bit.

 Is it possible to be a mountain AND a beach girl? We will see! :)
