We’ve been taught that what we reap is what we sow. Untangling the metaphor and taking it literally to the heart, these wise words simply say that seeds are among the most important possessions of farmers. When they have good seeds to sow, they expect good harvest.

This week, I am shining my SUSTAINABLE SPOTLIGHT on the wonderful organization OPENLANDS!
I am so excited at the chance to spread awareness of all of these great organizations, and today is no exception. What I love most about OPENLANDS is that they are so invested in our nation’s precious land! Their mission statement is to protect the natural and open spaces of northeastern Illinois and the surrounding region to ensure cleaner air and water, protect natural habitats and wildlife, and help balance and enrich our lives.
May 27, 2014Everyday Minerals is proud to announce our recent collaboration with the Australian gals behind the just-launched clothing label Bruce Heart, Rylee Maver and Elle Howard. Both vegan, Rylee and Elle (who are friends since childhood) created a cool collection of elegant yet edgy basics, and we recently teamed up with the girls to provide makeup for their exciting label launch party. With core values that perfectly echo our own, Bruce Heart is proud to donate a portion of its sales to animal welfare organizations. Love that!
