Hand in Hand: Sustainable Suds

Hand in Hand: Sustainable Suds

08 27 12 hand7

Hand in Hand (the company that donates one bar of soap to a child in need with every bar purchased) recently added three new designs to their line of Sustainable Suds, and we have them all!

The packaging, which is beautiful, was art directed and designed by Joy Deangdeelert Cho of Oh Joy . The soaps are available locally at our corner shop  and at Anthropologie stores nationwide.

“Sustainable Suds means more than just providing an eco-friendly soap. The soap’s paper wrap is made from 30% recycled material.

All shipping boxes go beyond the recycled content standards from the US Environmental Protection Agency and have achieved Cradle to Cradle certification. Impressive!

After each order is placed, Hand in Hand Soap will purchase a corresponding carbon offset so each shipment becomes carbon neutral. Carbon offsetting is a way to counterbalance or compensate for the greenhouse gases produced during shipment.

Say “NO” to the Rose

Sure, your’e right: red roses are beautiful, traditional and crazy romantic. But at this time of year, they also tend to be of poor quality and overpriced. “You’ll be paying a lot and not getting the best flowers,” says Matt Phillips of the Colonial House of Flowers legacy. He grew up working in a premier family florist that was established by his parents in 1968.

“Instead, try sticking with flowers that tend to be in season, like as tulips or anenomes.”

If you can’t stand the idea of a Valentine’s Day sans fresh roses, look for roses with firm, hydrated heads.
