SUMMER VACATION and NEW PRODUCTS
June 20, 2020
We're taking a little summer vacation over the 4th of July weekend. The shop will be closed Friday, July 3; Saturday, July 4; and Tuesday, July 7, so we can spend time with family. Normal summer hours will resume Wednesday, July 8. As a reminder, our store hours for the summer are Tuesday, Noon - 7 pm; Wednesday through Saturday, 10 am - 6 pm.
We now carry Better Life Body Soap, a gentle, all-purpose product that also works for hair and as a hand soap. Several people have asked about an alternative to Clearly Clean Hair & Body Wash, and this is a great one. There's an unscented and a citrus mint version.
Produce Magic Fruit and Veggie Wash from Vermont Soap is now available too. You should definitely wash your fruits and vegetables, even if they're organic. This traditional castille-based product is made with organic oils, it can be used as a spray or added to the water you use to rinse produce.
The entire world feels the effects of pollution and a warming planet, but nonwhite communities carry a disproportionate share of the burden. To learn more, I would encourage you to follow Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, a marine biologist and founder of Ocean Collectiv and Urban Ocean Lab, who's a leading voice on these issues. Check out her interview on NPR this week about the link between climate change and racial justice and her OpEd in the Washington Post about how racism hinders the fight against climate change.
Stay safe & stay clean!
See you soon,
