Organic Tees and More from KOPALI

Inspired by the philosophy of literary legend, William Blake,
No Enemy represents “true peace, true Justice, simple logic.” Grounded in the belief that we are only limited by our
own imagination, this socially aware designer of Kopali organic tees wears its heart on its sleeve, pant leg and other body parts as well.

aimsorganic.jpgMy youngest sister CariLu, (I have 3 sisses), gave me a Kopali organic tee just like the one pictured here, in a beautiful shade of green, and I adore wearing it — it’s luxurious, comfy and holds up beautifully when machine-washed.

Best if all, my mind rests easy knowing that it’s free of toxic pesticides, it was made fair-trade, and with water-based dyes.

4 Copas – world’s first certified organic tequila

tn_102_4_Copas_Blanco_1.jpg bottle_reposado.jpgtn_104_4_Copas_Anejo_2_1.jpg

Now the green movement is finally getting somewhere. I find my crochet and macrame works are more creatively expressed after a couple of organic margaritas.

Some other distillers may try the “all natural” or just plain “organic” tags but these folks are the first and only certified organic tequila distillers, and they actually care about agave farmers, harvesters and growing conditions.

Named Tequila of the Year 2006 by Wine and Spirits Magazine.
