Earth day celebration

We are super excited for a number of reasons lately - most of them related to the fact that we met some awesome new people - the owners of Posh Kids Consignment Boutique.

Not only are they nice, they live and have a store in the same suburb as us - and we're going to be partnering with them!

Check out their web site - and if you're in Orleans, check out their store. But most of all - check our our earth day event!

Did you know?

Buying and selling previously-owned clothing at Posh Kids is eco-friendly because it prevents needless waste.
- On average, 80% of textiles thrown away still have 75% of their wearability left.
There is an average of 7 kilograms of textile waste (clothes, bedding, curtains, etc.) per person in landfills throughout Canada.
- The textile industry is the second most polluting next to petrochemistry.

Protect the environment and your children from harsh chemicals by choosing clothing made of organic cotton offered by Apples n' Oranges.

- It takes one-quarter of a pound of chemicals to produce one conventional cotton T-shirt, and one-quarter of a pound of chemicals to produce 2 pairs of conventional men's boxer shorts.
- Conventional cotton: is the second most pesticide-laden crop in the world - after coffee and before tobacco.

Buying previously-owned toys is eco-friendly because it avoids the usual over-packaging
- An estimated 800,000 tonnes of toy packaging were dumped into our landfills during the Christmas 2007 season alone (Source: Greensword)

Sounds like it will be awesome. And what a wonderful cause to celebrate at your event!

Meanwhile, I am waiting for you to announce your next open house. I'd really like to ride your coat tails and show off my wares to your loyal clientele.
