ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
Friday, November 17th & Saturday November 18th 2017
We’re coming up on our one year anniversary and are really excited for the plans we have to celebrate. We want to give back to our loyal customers, so on Friday, November 17th, from 4:30pm till close, we will have Cocktails and Lotion. Swing by and have a cocktail on us!
The fun continues on Saturday, November 18th at 12:30pm with a discussion on living the zero waste lifestyle. Living such a lifestyle can be hard, but, as with so many other things, it can be made so much easier with the support of friends, family, and community. We ask you to join us to share tips and resources for reducing and re-using materials. We are happy that Monica Rosquillas, blogger from “A Girl for a Clean World” will take part in this discussion and share how she is able to live a sustainable lifestyle. This discussion will be held outside, in Bird Park playground at the corner of Pershing & Upas Streets.

Dr.BronnersUses. When they say 18-in-1, they aren’t kidding!
Plant Me! We now offer greeting cards from San Diego’s own Green Field Paper Company. These greeting cards have wildflower seeds in the paper, so you can send a bouquet to that somebody special in the mail for the price of a 44 cent stamp.
We’re expanding our dental care section with more offerings from Uncle Harry’s. We now carry Peppermint Toothpaste Polish, Spearmint Toothpaste Polish, and Miracle Mouthwash in addition to Tooth Powder and Whitening Toothpaste Polish.
We are also offering bamboo toothbrushes from Green Panda. These are the only toothbrushes we found that are economical and completely compostable.
Launder with berries! That’s right, we have soap nuts. These “nuts” are actually berries from a Himalayan tree. EcoNuts pack a cleaning punch, but are gentle on clothes and skin. You can put them directly in your washing machine (in the provided bag) and use them again and again. We carry two sizes: enough for 10 loads and enough for 100. They also work well with Biokleen’s Oxygen Bleach Plus.
Reducing Before We Recycle!
To date, we have refilled over 1,186 containers! Pat yourself on the back for making this happen!
A Tasty Tip
Summer may be over but it’s always the right time for a delicious, easy to prepare kale salad.
Kale Salad (serves 4-6)
3 bunches of kale cleaned, ribs removed, chopped into strips, and dried
3-6 cloves of garlic,depending on whether you like garlic
¼ cup of olive oil
¼ cup plus a bit more of soy sauce or tamari sauce or Dr. Bragg’s Amino Acid
¼ cup plus a bit more of real maple syrup
¼ cup plus a bit more of apple cider vinegar
⅛ or ¼ tsp of crushed red peppers depending on your taste for spicy.
Place kale in large bowl and sprinkle with salt. Massage kale with salt. Add garlic and olive oil, toss. Add remaining liquid ingredients, toss. Taste. If you prefer it saltier add a bit more soy sauce, or if you prefer it a little sweeter add more maple syrup. If you prefer it more tangy add more apple cider vinegar. Once you’ve attained your desired taste top with crushed red pepper. Enjoy!
