Save Money While Saving The Environment

Taressa George

Nowadays, we have so many choices when it comes to shopping.  Not only do we have shopping malls, but local farmers markets, second-hand and consignment stores, as well as an unlimited number of online stores. 

E-commerce has become so popular that even groceries can now be delivered to your front door.  Mattresses, cars, medicine, and even fast-food, can all be delivered nearly anywhere.  Drones are even making deliveries in some places.  

For those of us who value social and environmental responsibility, we think about the impact our purchases have on the environment and society.  We think about the value of purchasing from places that support important causes, give back, and make a difference.  And the companies who take steps to reduce their environmental impact, make us feel better about purchasing from them.

WellaVerde is proud to be among the companies who think beyond the bottom line.  While we cannot compete with retail giants like Amazon or WalMart, we feel good about the products we offer and the way we get them to your door.  We sleep better at night knowing that we deliver something with minimal impact on the environment, and we are glad to provide unique, one-of-a-kind items that can't be found in any retail chain. 

We value our customers not because they make purchases.  We value our customers because they are making a difference.  When it comes to shopping, they have a choice.  In fact, they have a plethora of choices, yet they make a conscious decision to buy a sustainable, recycled, organic, fair-trade and eco-friendly product that supports a bigger mission.  A product with benefits far greater than their original, intended purpose.  

The next time you need a unique gift, consider its source, material, and secondary benefits.  Imagine what it would feel like if everything we purchased had additional benefits.  What a wonderful world this would be. 

Organic Swaddles: Does Your Baby Sleep Through the Night?

Denise George

For countless generations, mothers have slept with their infants tucked close to their bodies, allowing them to nurse on and off during the night. More recently the tradition has changed to placing babies alone in their sleep location, on their back on a firm surface (due to SIDS), and attempting to get them to sleep through the night without waking or feeding. Though babies are not designed to sleep through the night, they eventually adapt to our desperate demands -- when they would be much more comfortable in a soft, snug swaddle. The following excerpt from Isis baby guru and RN/BCLD Nancy Holtzman’s series on swaddling shares expert information on the time-honored tradition. She explains why swaddling works and how it can help your baby get a more restful night’s sleep.

Why does swaddling work?

Babies, like all humans, will take several deep breaths every few minutes to bring more oxygen into their lungs. But with newborns, this deep breath often triggers a small startle reflex, making the arms jerk and flail out. Watch your sleeping baby: you’ll see somewhat irregular breathing, and will notice that sometimes he’ll startle, then return right back to quiet sleep. Other times, perhaps in a lighter sleep stage, he’ll startle, which will cause a second startle, and ultimately will startle himself awake and cry…

When a baby is swaddled snug with the arms down, the startle reflex is muffled and far less disruptive, they are more likely to stay asleep with each startle…Click here to read the entire series

You can continue this tradition with the softest swaddles and fashion-forward prints that say as much about your style as they do about practices that bind mothers together around the world. 47" x 47" pre-washed 100% cotton muslin or 100% organic cotton muslin swaddling wraps from Aden & Anais.

In the Buff Dishtowels

Denise George

Full Circle produces stylish, functional kitchen products made from sustainable and renewable resources. When they choose a material to go into their products, they ask two questions -- where does it come from and where will it go? By creating products with naturally-occurring materials, such as bamboo, cellulose and loofah, they know what will happen when those materials are eventually underground. They will break down into smaller pieces, cellulose and loofah, which will fully biodegrade. Full Circle has created a unique bristle blend for their brushes -- natural plant-based fibers that are absorbent so you use less soap, and recycled plastic bristles that are tough and durable but easy on the earth. So not only do their products work great, they last longer and they generate less waste.

These waffle weave organic dish towels are made of 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton. They are absorbent and quick-drying, durable and soft. In four natural colors.

Organic Fruit Teether Toys

Denise George

It does take a village -- 13 villages to be exact -- to produce Under the Nile's "Veggin Out" collection of educational fruit and veggie teether toys. By bringing work to 13 of the poorest villages in rural Egypt, women are able to be at home with their children and make a living wage. The women from each village are taught how to make one of the fruit or veggie toys. Each village is then responsible for producing that toy and paid fair wages for their work. Under the Nile provides these women and their families with a new-found economic opportunity as well as providing the community self-sufficiency and sustainability. Global Family Projects are funded by matching 2% of Under the Nile sales with 2% from their farm partners. This unique form of funding fights poverty, making a significant impact by supporting communities in need.

To market, to market! This cotton knit tote is stuffed with 100% organic cotton fruits -- Chiquita banana, pear, grapes and watermelon buddies -- all dyed with natural non-toxic colors.
