Will you review my product?

We love introducing great products to our readers. If you have a product that fits our interest criteria*, contact us — we’d love to try it out. We will put it through massive tests, because the purpose of our reviews is to provide information that you can’t otherwise get from the manufacturer’s website. Readers want to know things like how does it wash, is it comfortable, was it easy to use, how well did it hold up in various situations, what was our (or our children’s) response to it, and if we had any doubts or questions before testing, what were the outcomes of those? We will only post our review if the outcome is positive and we can heartily recommend it. We don’t post negative reviews — if we can’t post a positive review, we will contact you and let you know our feedback. Our post will be accompanied by high-quality, flattering photographic images.

* We are interested in reviewing products that fit into one or more of these categories:
* organic, eco-friendly, or sustainable
* U.S.-made
* innovative, practical, solves a problem
* gorgeous, artful, or unusual (in a modern, elegant, or funky way) design

How do you make money?

We have signed the blog with integrity pledge, and believe in honesty and transparency in our content. If you spend any time on our site, you’ll see that our main purpose is to share information, not to try and sell you stuff. We are not paid to write this blog, and if we receive any compensation or product from any other company, we will make that clear. Products given to us for review are donated if possible — some products are unsuitable for donation after being tested, such as single-use products.

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. We are also affiliates of certain other brands that we’ve carefully chosen, which means that if we write about a product on our site and you then purchase that product after clicking on one of our affiliate links, we may receive a (very small) commission (for Amazon, only if you purchase within 24 hours of first clicking through from our site). Why not? If you’d like to bypass any affiliate links, simply type the website or product name into your browser directly instead of clicking through from our site. If you like our writing and want to support us, click through to any affiliate link from our site right before you purchase — we appreciate the support!

We also accept paid advertisement. Ads may be either from companies who pay us to display their ads, from Google ads, or from affiliate ads. We appreciate their support.
