Michigan State Youth Entrepreneurship Panel

On April 27th I will be speaking and sharing ideas with local high school students at the "Youth Entrepreneurship Panel" organized by Michigan State University Extension Youth & Community Development. I am so delighted by this invitation and excited to see those wonderful kids who are in their spare time thinking and trying to become entrepreneurs! I already feel so proud of them! I can just wish for my kids to do the same when they hit high school :)

Earth Week 2010

Originally Earth Day was created to inspire awareness and appreciation for Earth's environment. The celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd began in the United States in 1970 and was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson. Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is getting greener! Just last weekend at the Detroit Zoo I overheard a little girl asking her mom: "Mom, can I recycle this?" pointing at a piece of plastic candy wrap. It was so cute and so heart warming :) Good job moms and dads!
We ALL contribute to a better tomorrow and every effort on our side, no matter how big or small - matters! "Be the change you want to see in the world" -Mahatma Gandhi.

Marmalade Hills was born in a quest for natural and safe skincare products. In our formulations we use only wholesome, plant derived and natural ingredients that are the best thing for your skin and your wellbeing. And just like many other wonderful "green" companies out there, we are trying to raise awareness about safe and natural skincare ingredients and products. But our efforts do not stop just there. As a business we try to minimize production and post production waste by using natural, plant derived and biodegradable ingredients, by recycling metal, plastic, glass, and paper materials, by printing our labels on recycled paper, and using only recyclable packaging. We also offer a Recycling Credit for our returning customers. We are still reusing our shipping peanuts, but just last week I have found a lead to a new and exciting Eco-friendly packaging solution. It will take some time to implement it, but you can be sure - we are improving, as we grow!

On personal frontier we try to live a responsible life and set right examples for our kids. For some years we have been going on hikes around the neighborhood with our oldest daughter and picking up litter. It is a great activity and it gives kids another dimension on responsible living. This year we have decided to make it official and join forces of Clean Sweep team of Bloomfield Township during the weekend of April 24th and 25th. Our family adopted Franklin Rd section between Quarton Rd and Lone Pine Rd, so if you are in the area drive by and wave!

Happy Earth Week! Please, respect your Mother!

Till next time,
