Stand by Your Brand - Forget Deals and Buy Eco-Friendly

I am constantly pricing everything. Constantly doing a price comparison. When you are a parent that is a given. When the economy has taken a bit of a turn you will expect most people to do this also. In general everyone loves to get a deal.

Besides the deals then comes a responsibility. Do I forget deals and purchase brands or with merchants who are eco-friendly? As time goes by I am thinking further about mine and the merchant's global impact on the environment.

I am not the only one - green products and services are at the fore front of most retailers minds as this eco-friendly mindset continues to grow into a global movement.With such emphasis on finding ways to be eco-friendly, shopping for name brand companies that are known for quality products that also have eco-friendliness in mind is a definite plus.

Beautiful Camera by Evil Erin
Recently I have been looking into products that I can feel better about purchasing. One of these searches has involved pricing cameras. I am looking to purchase a new camera because my old one has been having issues and possibly the sensor is broken. I have thought long and hard whether buying a more advanced camera is worth the investment. I feel that it is the right decision.

I am very passionate about photography and I am more inspired by food when I have pictures. If I am to start seriously food blogging, a good camera is worth it's weight in gold.

One of the sites I found through pricing cameras is Super Warehouse. As I looked around at the other products they offer, I was pretty impressed at the site in general. There are some great prices on electronics. You can easily navigate throughout the site , there are both a dynamic drop down menu sorted by categories, and text links plus a logo directory of your favorite brand name products. There are consumer buying guides on the site to help you make the most of the site.

Super Warehouse prides itself on featuring the largest selection of big name eco-friendly electronics such as Apple laptops , HP scanners , Brother laser printers and a vast variety of other color laser printers. Boasting 50,000 retail products available to consumers 24 hrs a day 7 days a week.

On further investigation, I found out this company was started in 1997 by Russell Schneider out of his 2 bedroom apartment. Russell wanted to provide customer service that would go above and beyond what customers expected. 10 years later and 16 warehouses strong, his business can deliver to most places in 1-2 business days.

Super Warehouse is committed to only sell products they can feel good about. I am really impressed about this companies background and their commitment to customer service and the ideals associated with the go green movement.

The views expressed here are mine and mone alone. I wrote this website review while participating in a blog tour  by Parent Reviewers on behalf of Super Warehouse. I received a gift-card  in exchange for my honest feedback. Please read more about Renaissance Culinaire's Disclosure Policy.

Investing your time and money into companies that are eco-friendly is the future I believe we are headed towards. I'm glad to see I am not the only person with this concern.

I find the best way to stay eco-friendly and frugal is to always make a list and stick to it. It doesn't take much time to plan meals and make a list. It makes doing things right so much easier.

Another important factor is nutrition. All other things being equal, buy the cheaper brand with less packaging. But if there is a big nutritional difference, you're not really saving money if what you're buying is mostly fat or sugar.

Nothing feels great than to know that a company started from a house is now grown into a very big company and still maintaining their standard. That is a great thing to know because people after achieving success do tend to forget their initial goal for starting the business and what brought them success.

And I believe as time goes by, more and more companies would start thinking to produce eco-friendly products because people are really going after eco-friendly products.

Outsourcing your content will depend on 4thing. Passion! Money! Time! Writing Skills! If some one is passionate about writing then he wont consider to outsource. If some one is making enough money then he will consider. And some one is just busy then he will.

This is very informative. I hope that more people start choosing to buy Eco-friendly . I don't do it before, but I am trying to do a little more each time.
