Vintage Cotton and Hemp Lingerie: Part 2

LadyinLingerie2.jpgIt conflicts with our "less is more" mantra, but we honestly can't get enough of Enamore's vintage cotton and hemp undies, photographed so fetchingly and featured at The Natural Store.

According to the blurb on the site, this limited edition pair, featuring vintage printed cotton combined with cream-colored hemp silk and ruffled black lace, is designed as "special occasion wear." As we can see.

Enamore lingerie available at The Natural Store.

Timberland "Pacific Grove" Mary Janes at Half Price

maryjane.jpgSpeaking of Timberland, the company's Pacific Grove Mary Janes, a shoe we can highly recommend, is currently on sale at Amazon for $34.90, more than half off the original price.

Sort of a sneaker, sort of a shoe. Just the right blend of feminine and fabulous, especially in the acid yellow-green color they've got featured. Kick ass, sustainably, in these sweethearts. Get 'em while they're hot.

Buy Timberland Mary Janes.

Timberland: Shoes with a Nutrition Label

Here's something you don't see every day. The folks at Timberland are now including a "nutrition label" on every box of shoes they sell. The label highlights the shoes' environmental impact, including energy used to produce them and what percent of that energy was renewable; community impact ,which highlights the number of hours Timberland employees serve in their communities, the fact that all Timberland factories are assessed against a code of conduct that ensures workplace safety and fair labor practices, and notes that no child labor was used to produce your shoes; and where they were made, which lets you know, well, where your shoes were made.

Timberland has long been a leader on the corporate social responsibility front - measuring and reporting on the company's efforts to strenghten communities, protect the environment and improve global human rights. Sure, they recognize it as a way to sell more shoes - appealing to the outdoorsy, tree-hugging, hiker/environmentalist types the company has long embraced as one of its key constituents. But they also see it as a way to attract and retain talented employees, and distinguish themselves among their peers in the shoes and clothing manufacturing business.

"What kind of footprint will you leave?" asks the advertising copy for the new nutritional labeling. Kick up your heels for a company that's trying to come up with an answer.

Thanks, Russ, for sending this in.

Save Those Pepitas

Hey folks,

Save those pepitas, aka sunflower seeds. Turns out they make some pretty cool jewelry. Eve's Addiction uses sunflower seeds, acai seeds and Fimo dough to construct these amazing handmade bracelets. Each bracelet is unique. And if you get stuck out in the desert, I'm guessing that with a little bit of salt, it might make a pretty good snack.
