The Ipath Cabana – a new hemp shoe


IPath’s new Cabana shoe is made with 100% hemp uppers.  The stylish cross-over casual shoe is a great summer alternative for skateboarders, eco posers and those possessing a certain level of counterculture savoir faire.

While we’re on the subject of hemp…when is the U.S. going to approve the legal growth and processing of industrial hemp?  We import hemp-based products from Canada and elsewhere.  Industrial hemp can be grown on unimproved land, with little, or no, pesticides and herbicides.   The weed can be used in the production of paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics and fuel – while saving valuable forests.  Just a thought.

Loki pendant made by Etsy crafter


miclok_1.jpgBetina Wassermann is living the dream of every part-time, Etsy, tchotchke maker.  If you caught the procession of stars on the Oscar’s red carpet, you may have seen Mickey Rourke sporting a pendant featuring a photo of his recently deceased and beloved companion, Loki the Chihuahua.  Designer Wasserman, inspired by the passing of her own pooch, created the Loki pendant and forwarded it to Mr. Rourke as a gift.  Custom order your own charm (the Loki piece will remain one of a kind) @ wickedworld.etsy.com.  Makes sense that Betina works full time in marketing…

elegant roots – worthy gifts for conscious consumers


I recently uncovered a gem of a gift site, Elegant Roots.  Designed to foster a consumer evolution…encouraging consumers to make purchasing decisions based on values beyond function and beauty.

They make it easy to make informed choices by presenting the essentials — Who made the product, Where, of What, and Why on every page — in a fresh, user-friendly format. Each designer/manufacturer/artisan is profiled in detail, creating a greater sense of appreciation of the craft involved.

Shop for accessories, baby and kids, home decor, jewelry, men, pets and spa. It is the thought that counts.
