Busy Breathers Oxygen Backpack
Busy Breathers - A Mom Invented Oxygen Backpack
When Michelle Staley's son was born three months premature, his lungs were severely underdeveloped. After he spent four months in the neonatal intensive care unit, she was very excited to finally get her little boy home. This happiness however was overshadowed by fear about her baby being on oxygen 24 hours a day for at least the next year if not longer.
Along with this fear was the frustration of having to carry a purse, diaper bag, bottles, oxygen bag-along with her baby and equipment so she invented the Busy Breather oxygen backpack that provides an organized system for mom and baby on oxygen to get out of the house, go to doctors appointments, sit at the park, go shopping without all of the hassle of carrying several items separately such as oxygen tank, diaper bag, purse, medical supplies, etc..

"bibbitec is the only product on the market that truly grows with the child. It starts off in a Super Mom’s life as a soft, non-toxic, anti-microbial burp cloth and changing cloth, wiping clean with a baby wipe and resisting germs and odors. Then it transforms from a simple breast feeding shield into a 6 month old full body bib, place mat or breathable stroller blanket Eventually, bibbitec makes its home as an art smock, a “lapkin” for those eat-while-you-run car rides, and an apron for a five year old. bibbitec is one product that will last for five years.

Waste Less Living
Waste Less Living evolved out of the notion that more can be done to protect our environment than just practicing the 3 Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle! Reducing our waste on the front end at the individual level CAN make a significant positive impact. By diverting the compostable waste (food and soiled paper) that makes its way into our landfills, we can begin to curb the pollution generated by our landfills and be well on our way towards cleaning up the environment and improving our health.
