Hello from Amy!
I'm still learning how to use this Shopify site and today I thought I'd take a moment to try out the blog section.
We are over 160 days into COVID life here in the US (look at all my gray hair!!) and to say these have been trying times is a gross understatement for many.
Aubrey and I are very grateful to be comfortable and safe where we live, but I do have friends who have lost loved ones to the virus, wildfires are burning all over our state of California and Aubrey and I are both, currently, mostly out of work, as actors.
On the positive side, we are healthy, and I have spent my extra time focused on exercise and nutrition, writing and shooting a short film, and I learned how to knit and crochet! I've also been trying to garden but so far I've killed most of our plants. Oops. Oh and I started a worm compost bin and I'm relieved and pleased to report that the red wigglers are thriving and doing their part to help the environment! GO WORMS!
I'd also dedicated some time to reaching out to California non-profits that need toiletries for vulnerable and in-need populations and have made several EARTHMANIA donations. Topanga Women's Circle, Throwing Starfish, and My Friend's Place are all amazing non-profits that are helping homeless youth, families transitioning out of homelessness, essential workers, and children in the US foster care system.
However, a couple days ago I read an NPR article about microplastics in the ocean and how researchers are discovering there is even more than previously thought. Ugh.
YOU GUYS! We can do better and we must do better. A bamboo toothbrush is such an easy way to start.
Starting today, $2 from each box of EARTHMANIA brushes sold, will go directly to one of three charities that you can choose from at check-out.
Join us in supporting these important organizations as they help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our land and sea.
*And as a thank you to you, here is a check out code for 10% off your entire EARTHAMNIA order. Enter: EARTHLOVER2020
We'll still make the $2 charity donation and you get a little savings for yourself :)
Thank you for reading my first blog and thank you for taking this journey with us. Stay safe and healthy, and happy brushing!
