P.I.C. (Product Information Corner) for Conscious Consuming

Buying organic produce without plastic packaging makes me feel good! I know that I am using less plastic and buying food that hasn’t been sprayed with chemicals that could hurt me and the environment.

Likewise, I am beginning to buy organic clothing and people are giving me gifts that reflect my choice to wear organic items. Below are two pairs of sox, one purchased and one a gift from a marine biologist, whose profile I will feature soon. Label info below the photo:



I love the fact that the sox are made with 75% organic materials and are fair traded (www.info.fairtrade.net). They are also soft, thick and comfy!

And the company to investigate is:

The sox are available online or at the stores of Ten Thousand Villages.
Website: http://www.tenthousandvillages.com).

Be a smart shopper! Vote for a cleaner environment and better clothes for your body by making conscious purchases. Mother Nature and your body will love you for it!


Here is a photo of how the sox are packaged with all the info on the other side of the cardboard label.

Odds & Ends: Lunar Press & 25 Days of Minis (Art)

NOTE: I am interrupting my posting of petitions to post two items that may be of interest to you.

The first: The ’22 Lunar Calendar:Dedicated to the Goddess in Her Many Guises, which is a wonderful tool for women who want to track their menses and pre-menopause and/or menopause issues, since the menses is influenced by the moon, so the lunar calendar is done according to the moon.

Art by Jamie Hogan, entitled “Tiger Moon”
Edited by Nancy FW Passmore, who created the moon calendar and notes on the postcard I received: Give the Joy of Many Moons!
