Yuzen

Whether it’s a free sample at the grocery store or a new brand your best friend just recommended, discovering a fantastic new product is almost like falling in love.

That’s why it felt like Christmas in July when we unwrapped Yuzen’s July “box of Zen,” beautifully packaged and filled with products that are nourishing for the body, soul and planet.

Yuzen, a Boulder, Colo.-based company, makes it easy to find — and fall in love with — the best new eco-friendly products. It’s also an invitation to pause and take a quiet moment to enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures: a hot cup of tea, the smell of fresh flowers or a mouth-watering bite of dark chocolate.

No Toxic Love, Please.

Many of us will send (and receive) flowers for Valentine’s Day (as well as Mother’s Day and/or Easter). However, many of us are unaware the $40 billion floral industry often exploits laborers, and deals in toxic chemicals – not what you want to associate with a gift of love! Check out some of these facts from the bestselling book, The Flower Confidential. We have an opportunity to use this holiday to improve our health, as well as minimize our impact on the environment and build community by making better flower choices, like shopping at Local Harvest, Organic Bouquet, or California Organic Flowers.

Funnily enough, although I have the biggest sweet tooth among anyone I know, I’m not a huge fan of chocolate. But, I’m happy on behalf of the many chocoholics in my life (hi, mom!) every time I read more news on how chocolate is good for you.
