This next find is from Phoenix Bites. They've found a company that hits all the green marks "environmentally responsible, producing all-natural beverages made with organically grown ingredients, packaged in eco-friendly containers."

They're pretty, now we wonder if they're any good.
Mesa blogger Busy Bee Lauren made a favorite recipe for Eggs in Purgatory which she originally posted back in March.
