Slow Food International | good, clean and fair food

Slow Food is a non-profit organization that promotes local food, knowledge of where our food comes from and how our choices affect the rest of the world. I can't put it any better, so this is what they say. "Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work. We consider ourselves co-producers, not consumers, because by being informed about how our food is produced and actively supporting those who produce it, we become a part of and a partner in the production process."

    Etsy has everything, from modern to vintage in art, jewelry, clothing etc. I can spend hours browsing the links and shops of individual designers and entrepreneurs. I receive inspiration each time I visit.

  • The aptly named "Fair Bear" is fairly made and organically constructed, making him the ideal (and truly green) playmate. You can even dress him up in a mini collection of eco tees and pants.

  • Cephalods and Organic?! I love that these aren't merely screen-printed... it's heavy, weighty applique. Brings a three-dimensionality to the artwork on the little one's chest.

  • These little egglings are perfect for those growing their first time. Just crach the shell, water, and in a few months move to the outdoors for more soil

  • Love the contrast between Compost Intervention and this piece. The other was constructed geometrically, random and static. This one is organic and fluid, like a moving amoeba. Nice.

Chicken - if not in the meat case, may be at the counter - but not all areas have it. Why I like this: There are no hormones or antibiotics, it's cage free and vegetable fed AND there is a code on the package that can be input into the website to find out which family farm that poultry you'll be eating tonight is from. That is cool. Bonus*** clean-eating and healthy recipes are found on this website. I will say though, that there are a lot of family farms around where YOU live that you could buy from, but this is a great option for those that won't/can't do this.

  • Even if you're not ready to commit to cloth diapers... or you're buying for a friend... these are great to have on hand for late night diaper outages. Good for the environment too.

I was fond of some of the recipes and not so fond of others, but it provides enough information to allow you to understand the process. I also appreciated the emphasis on skin care and relaxation.

It grows super fast, requires no pesticides, and provides lots of great nutrients to the soil (unlike crops that deplete nutrients). Though I will admit, the growing of it would get hairly in the U.S. due to it's glazy-eyed cousin. I bought a checkbook wallet and a men's wallet and the quality is great. Plus, I ordered the wallet right before Christmas -knowing there was no way I would get it in time- and I did! They had it to me from Canada in just a few days, don't know how they did it. **Update** It's been two Christmases since I gave this gift and it hasn't worn through like his previous "leather" ones. Still in fantastic shape... amazing!!

Wholefoods is a great place to start is you want to kick start your health life. What they do differently than a normal supermarket is that they review every item before deciding to stock that item in their stores. Foods with certain proceeded ingredients are not sold at wholefoods so it makes it much easier to shop for healthier foods. They have a great meat section too (My personal favorite section) with delicious pre-preped foods that you can just pop in the oven. The caveat is, however, that it is more pricey, but in the long run, your health costs will probably eat up the cost savings you'd get from eating less healthy options. Of course, this is not to say you can't get fat from eating wholefoods foods. If you drink olive oil, it will still make you fat (and probably sick). Any who - they do free store tours at some of the stores so you can check it out and them get a goodie bag at the end. Pretty sweet!

This is a real treat for anyone who likes rich dark chocolate. No need for the flavored bars, the plain chocolate is enough to satisfy. I've seen these at target, so grab one next time you are there. They are somewhat pricey, but worth every nickle and 10% of profits go to the protections if endangered species.

They are too young to open or appreciate a gift, but this one gives in a few ways. Not only will they adorn the cute little feline, but the parents can feel good knowing that there they are part of a bigger picture. Buy clothes and improve people's lives? What a bargain. 1. It's a cute organic onesie for the baby 2. All profits from Snow Leopard Enterprises are invested right back into community conservation projects that generate income and help protect snow leopards and their habitat. 3. This means that women around Central Asia are trained and given equipment to make wool-crafted products, which in turn are sold by the Snow Leopard Trust. ----- a beneficial cycle of consumer and product.

It states, "Consider that what and how we eat indeed determines the health of the Earth. Your Earth Dinner™ is an opportunity for you to understand--at least for one night—where each ingredient on your table comes from. The challenge for your dinner party guests is to share the story behind each dish. Who grew the food? How was it grown? What is the geographic origin of the food?"

I love the idea of this t-shirt because it's saying that we can empower ourselves by being more self-sufficient. Not only with the prices of food lately, but we know what is being put into - or NOT put into - our food. Growing season is over and I'm sad. I had only two tomato plants and it gave me more than enough tomatoes for the summer! I especially love it when websites provide info on their products that make you more informed on their environmental purpose. Here's what they say, "The environmentally safe screen printing process on these articles of clothing involve non-aerosol adhesives which reduce CFC emission into the ozone. Printing is done with non-toxic, water-based inks and post-production clean up involves filtering any excess inks with soybean and citrus based solvents through a filtration system to capture emulsion sediment and ink pigment for safe, non-toxic disposal."

Essentially three treatments in one, this natural eye makeup remover does an effective job of removing non-waterproof eye makeup without pulling, drying or using harsh chemicals and solvents. Eyebright is known to be soothing and relieve eyestrain so it can also be used as an eye treatment for tired, overworked eyes by soaking a couple of cotton pads, lying back and relaxing. It can also help with redness and irritation. I love products that multi-task and this is a gem.
