Mountain Rose Herbs EARTH DAY giveaway

Another EARTH DAY has come and gone but for many of us it's not just a " day " anymore. It's a lifestyle! 

I remember the first Earth Day event I went to in 1991. The main focus was on recycling and alternative energy. It was there that Boz and I learned about an annual event called The National Solar Tour. 
At the time we were planning to build an OFF GRID Straw Bale Home on ten acres of raw land we had purchased in the high desert of northern Nevada situated one mile away from power. We even attended a day-long straw bale workshop where we had the opportunity to help someone else get their wall ( bales ) in place!  Fast Forward 21 years and a lot has changed ( we left our land for the sunny shores of Cape Cod Bay and a tiny OFF-GRID BEACH cottage ) in the world and in the hearts of people world wide about the way we live and how we can make our world a healthier place. Being organic and homesteading in the 70's was for hippies and folks who were against " the establishment". At least that's what the media wanted us to think. Thanks to the hard work of those hippies  visionaries GREEN LIVING is not only popular in the mainstream today, it's embraced wholeheartedly by businesses who participate in sustainable business practices alongside providing the consumer healthier choices.

Businesses like Mountain Rose Herbs are doing their part every day to make sure we have products that are healthy for us and our Earth.

Mountain Rose Herbs Debuts Sustainable Tea Packaging Made From Trash

EUGENE, OR – February 21, 2012 – Mountain Rose Herbs, one of the nation’s largest bulk suppliers of organic herbal products, has debuted new sustainable tea packaging made entirely of garbage materials. After two years of research and development, the company has produced a unique box made from 100% recycled newspaper and compostable non-GMO plant cellulose for their line of certified organic loose-leaf teas. This is the only certified organic tea line on the market packaged with 100% post-consumer waste materials.

When Mountain Rose Herbs set out to design the new tea line, their focus turned to finding an environmentally conscious packaging option that was recycled, recyclable, biodegradable, and reusable. “When we discovered this recycled newspaper board, we knew it was the perfect fit for our commitment to sustainability. According to our research, this is the only 100% post-consumer waste tea packaging in the industry and that’s huge,” says Shawn Donnille, Vice President at Mountain Rose Herbs.

The newly designed packaging features full color photos of the company’s organic teas with multi-layered embossing to create a vibrant 3-demensional graphic effect using environmentally friendly soy inks. Customers will be able to recycle, compost, or reuse the new box. “The unique aesthetic of this tea box is just striking on store shelves, but our customers really respond to the functionality and absolute sustainability of the package. The fact that the boxes are beautiful is just an added bonus,” says Donnille.
