A Designer Tee Shirt Battles Malaria


Glamour has teamed up with designers Peter Som, Marchesa, Thakoon, Erin Fetherston and Jovovich-Hawk to create cool-looking tees to battle malaria in Africa. For every limited edition $68 tee purchased, 3 malaria-preventing bed nets will be donated to combat this deadly disease, thanks to: Malaria No More, Glamour and Shopbop. Net manufacturer Sumitomo Chemical will up the ante, donating an additional 3 protective nets for every tee sold.

Next year, how about making them from either organic cotton or a more sustainable fabric?

Talulah Natural Skin Care – a real treat


There’s typically a lot of science behind “the beauty” in the business of skincare. Six year old Talulah’s Natural Skincare entire line is hand crafted with natural science, and built on a thoughtful approach to product formulations and business practices. Owner Nicole Maust is committed to creating a fresh, effective collection of face & body products made exclusively from organic botanicals, premium essential oils and nourishing plant extracts. 100% phthalate and paraben free. 100% petroleum and synthetic free. Very Pure.

I recently tried Talulah’s Holistic Skincare Kit for Dry and Sensitive Conditions, and was wowed by the products’ potent moisturizing power. Raw Honey Mask, Calendula Cream and Vanilla Bean Cleanser as well as Saffron Body Wash ORG, Aromatic Body Serum BOC, Oma Face Serum No. 2, and Green Tea Leaf Toner — each with a distinctly divine scent. Talulah promises to “refresh, nourish and glow,” and delivers!

This kit contains 7 small-sized items @ $28, a great deal.

The line is packaged cleanly and simply with no-frills labels, and the contents should be used within 3 months of opening.  Note: some items are vegan, all are vegetarian.

Before ordering, check out the Product Guidelines.

Robert Redford Supports Sundance Summit

rredford.jpgThe Sundance Kid is all grown up, and he’s a driving force behind not only independent filmmaking, but also environmental activism. Robert Redford is one of the keynote speakers at this year’s gathering of mayors for the third annual Sundance Summit on global warming. I caught CNN’s live interview with Bob about an hour ago; when asked if he thought GW Bush will motivate Americans and others to wake up and do something about this global climate crisis, Bob basically said, “…I’ve met with them a number of times, forget about them, (Bush and his cronies/administration); they’re in serious denial about the whole situation.” Man, he’s good.

Sundance Summit begins today, 9/9 and continues through 9/12. The premise of the org is to get a grass roots political force for climate change going in the U.S., and promote new technologies that will impact our economy and planet in positive ways. What’s on their agenda?

I was curious to see which mayors are attending the conference, not one mayor from NY state, and only 2 from NJ, and 1 from CT. Of course, there are 10 mayors from California attending, no surprise there, they are one of the most progressive states, ecologically-speaking.
