I am happy to announce that our gift set collection for baby has arrived and features “Paws the Panda” who will be frolicking in some of our gift sets. Paws is soft and cuddly made from 100% organic cotton and soy fiber filling. What I am most proud of is that every one of our gift sets is packaged in a reusable keepsake sachet. There is nothing to throw away, except the recyclable shipping box…no cellophane, peanuts, straw. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, even our shampoo and lotion just come in recyclable containers. There is no excess packaging. If you want the fancy shmancy packaging…go to a fancy department store because they believe it adds perceived value to the product. After you think it’s pretty, immediately go to the garbage and throw it out. I think our customers are smarter than that.

How Can you Arrest a Mermaid?

Actress Daryl Hannah and over 500 others were arrested at a sit-in outside the White House to voice their opposition to the planned  construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.  The pipeline would run from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Hannah is bringing attention to what could otherwise be a quiet deal between Obama and the oil industry. Earlier this month, an editorial in The New York Times opposed the pipeline, reading, “We have two main concerns: the risk of oil spills along the pipeline, which would traverse highly sensitive terrain, and the fact that the extraction of petroleum from the tar sands creates far more greenhouse emissions than conventional production does.”
The hope of the Obama presidency was the vision to eliminate our dependence on oil.  Thank you, Daryl…Your move Mr. President.
