Seventh Generation's New Eco Campaign

Seventh Generation, a maker of eco-friendly household products, is promoting a campaign in Washington called "The Million Baby Crawl". The goal of "The Million Baby Crawl" is to demand toxic chemical policy reform from Congress. Since 1976, the Environmental Protection Agency has only required safety testing on 200 of 80,000 products. Seventh Generation allows users to become active via their website and create a "crawler" to simulate a signature on a petition. Seventh Generation claims to have no partisan involvement, and anyone can get involved!

Jonäno debuted their first collection in collaboration with award-winning Design Director, Henry N Jackson, at New York Fashion Week this season. Jonäno’s signature eco fabrics and attention to sustainable and ethical practices combined with Mr. Jackson’s eye for sophisticated yet feminine design came together beautifully in a fall collection comprising signature ecoKashmere® knits and viscose from bamboo cocktail dresses, hemp denim and organic cotton herringbone ensembles in a collection that was inspired by the culture rich city of Vienna. M A Orito, Artist and Crafts person designed the jewelry pieces that accompanied the looks on the catwalk. Tones of heather gray mélange combined with mauve and pops of deep red rich indigo, complimenting the neutral palate Fashion Week goers saw at shows across the city.

Mr. Jackson yields from the world of couture and high fashion, dressing celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Halle Berry, and Whoopi Goldberg for the red carpet in his designs. Coming on board with Jonäno as Design Director represents a new project for Jackson, resulting in a ready to wear line that all involved hope will “take green mainstream.”

Orgnx Haircare

I have used many a hair product that claims to be organic yet leaves my hair falling flat. However, on a recent shopping trip I discovered a FANTASTIC organic product that lives up to its eco-claims and works great! Orgnx by LaCoupe is a wonderful organic product that's also afforable (around $5.00 a bottle). LaCoupe believes what you don't put into a product can be as important as what you put into it, so Orgnx is sulfate-free, paraben-free and DEA-free. Orgnx has been salon-tested and approved, and is always cruelty-free. Each Orgnx product focuses on a different hair care challenge common to modern life. There's an Orgnx regimen for every hair type.
