must hear new music

You may remember me posting about an up and coming artist; Diane Birch. If not, check out my review of her when I checked her out live last month. I wanted to let everyone know her debut album just hits the shelves on June 2nd.

Diane's new cd Bible Belt is amazing! It is an all around feel good cd. Diane's voice is incredible and all of the songs are beautifully written. This girl is talented! Check out her songs on her website, myspace and facebook pages. Catch her tweets here.

She is also doing a Discover & Donate program. If you discover her tunes you automatically donate $1 to one of six charities.

"It sounds like an air compressor"

...said LA as he was flatulating loudly while defecating recently. Of course, this was followed by hilarious shock and massive amounts of laughter from Nana who was in the room with him at the time.

fresh | handmade | green | good for ya

I have found a fun, fresh, respondible, organic (often vegan) cosmetic company in LUSH.

NOTE: Exhibit A is how our dream cream started. Exhibit B is 3 weeks later. Think we liked it? Mr. Blonde says to "...make sure everyone knows this stuff doesn't smell too girly. But, it's not so manly that it's not girly enough either and it is not at all greasy..." Alright, I told you. Now, where was I...

Trash is a problem right? Where does it really all go anyway? I don't know. So, LUSH's approach to packaging is really quite cool. And, all too unique. LUSH has spent years asking themselves if packaging is absolutely necessary. If the packaging materials used are sustainable, reusable, recycled, and recyclable that's good. But, are there ways of getting the same products unpackaged?

The answers to these important questions has led LUSH to develop innovative products, such as solid shampoo bars, conditioners, bubble bar slices, massage bars, hair henna’s, body butters, deodorants, all of which don’t require packaging. As a result, last year alone approximately 3 million plastic bottles were not manufactured, transported and disposed of because customers chose to buy LUSH’s solid shampoo bars instead of a bottled product.

When LUSH can’t eliminate packaging completely, they look for the simplest packaging to do the job and use post-consumer recycled, recyclable and biodegradable materials whenever possible. The total recycled content in all LUSH packaging is about 89%.

With a fantastic focus on customer service LUSH even has a forum where they answer people's questions.

On top of all that, they have an outstanding code of conduct dedicated to ethicals ways of doing business and they give to charities through their Charity Pot body lotion. And, they have some Father's Day ideas in case you haven't worked that out just yet for that special Dad in your life.

Head over to their website or stop by a retailer that carries them and pick something up. Sign up for their catalog here while you're at it. I have truly enjoyed these handmade products. Thank you Lush!
