Artisan Story
Conserve – Born of a desire to reduce India’s mountain of waste, improve energy efficiency, and help some of Delhi’s poorest out of the city’s slums, Conserve India achieves all this by turning plastic bags into high fashion.
Conserve started as a fledgling recycling project but quickly adapted to confront the biggest challenge it was facing – what to do with the thousands of plastic bags that could not be composted or recycled locally.

All Good Lips Active Beauty Tints in SPF 18 (Pack of 6)
from Elemental Herbs

    
lipspfHere it is, ladies, All Good Lips with COLOR! Not just any color, but 6 carefully chosen hues gathered from the earth’s natural minerals. Find yourself in wild places with color on your All Good Lips. They also made with pure zinc oxide rated at SPF 18 to protect you from the sun’s rays. Flavored with a hint of organic peppermint essential oil, the All Good Lips Tinted lip balms offer a whole spectrum of colors to explore. For an extra glossy shine, add All Good Lips Original Organic on top!
    
Color Descriptions:
    
Pacific Mist: a shiny shimmer, almost clear with a very light white hue. Nice on it’s own if you’re feeling subtle, or perfect for pairing with other colors to give them a little lift. We respect the mighty ocean and revere her mystical beauty. – Now re-formulated to be a creamier and smoother texture without zinc oxide.
    
Alpine Pink: this is true pink, light and airy. Take your pick; think of the native wild mountain bulb, Lake Alpine, Alpine Meadows….or your favorite alpine place.
    
Barnabe Rose: for the naturalist that loves the feel, this rose shows up well, and just enough to highlight your own pretty lip tones. Named for the birthplace of Elemental Herbs, Mt Barnabe Farm, in west Marin, CA.
    
Maroon Creek: So kissable! And dynamic, walk on the wild side with this one. The creek brings cool clear mountain water from the Maroon Bells near Aspen, CO down through the Roaring Fork Valley.
    
Red Rocks: is Red! Red from sandstone, not red from cherry cough drops. Ever dream of climbing high in a desert or seeing Rock ‘n Roll at the world’s coolest natural amphitheater? Red Rocks it is!
    
Copper Canyon: is a lovely brownish shine, a must for your fall wardrobes. Let’s go get lost! The copper canyons in Mexico are a wild and magical maze of flora, fauna and culture.
