Earth Day: Think Local

For one day only, Thursday, April 22, you can get 10% off on Sierra Dew Designs in honor of Earth Day.

Sierra Dew is a lifestyle brand that strives to create trendsetting "conscious" wearable art for the contemporary woman. They are a socially conscious label bringing consumer awareness to purchasing choices.

Sierra Dew garments use organic cotton, sweatshop free, recycled, and vintage fabrics. 100% non-toxic water-based inks are used while printing, which add to the softness of the fabrics. The garments are printed locally in Honolulu. Each garment has a one of a kind tag printed on organic cotton and signed by the artist.
To read more about Sierra Dew sustainable fashions, please check out this recent article in Green Magazine and visit the facebook page for Sierra Dew Designs.
Also for Earth Day, three locally made body care & nutrition companies are being featured and discounted from Thursday, April 22nd through the end of the month, while supplies last.
Hawaiian Herbal Blessings, the Noni company in Haiku, will be 20% off, while Island Essence and Puna Noni will be 10% off.

Endangered Species Chocolate will be sampled on Thursday, April 22nd from 11-3. Although not a Hawaii company, they are included in our Earth Day celebration because they donate 10% of net profits to organizations like the Ocean Conservancy and See Turtles.
And don't forget, every day you can get a free reusable bag when you spend $150 at Mana Foods. By making a simple change, like bringing a reusable bag, you can have a impact. According to The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. goes through 100 billion plastic shopping bags annually. An estimated 12 million barrels of oil is required to make that many plastic bags. Plastic bags cause over 100,000 sea turtle and other marine animal deaths every year when animals mistake them for food.
