Thanks for the comment. Of course, I like to toot our own horn - we carry Pangea Organics line of skin care & soap. I personally use the hand soap, shower gel and body lotion. The amazing aromas are only enhanced by the fact that these…"
Living a green life doesn’t mean you have to be a die-hard treehugger. A green life is as much about our health and well being as it is about the earth and our environment. A life with less disease and sickness through simple choices about the products we use and their impact on our bodies. We spend a lot of time at home in our kitchens. It’s the heart of the house and the one room we should consider when going green.1. Use natural plant-based cleaners that do not contain harmful chemicals. If…See More

Spring is in the air and spring cleaning will soon be here. Have you thought about the safety of the cleaning products you use around the house?

Cleaning products are large contributors to VOC levels in our homes as discussed last month in our… Continue
I don't know how many people have seen the You Tube video of Mr. Poe's fear-laden speech before the house? Well, here's the link:
And, here's our response:

I hope business is going well for you. Have you considered suggesting some sustainable logs? I've been approached by several companies about fire logs made from saw dust and waste material. They are reported to burn hotter and longer than hardwoods and, of course, don't require additional deforestation:) Thanks!
