I started Harvest of Peace (my Etsy Shop) back in 2008. Shortly after, I was offered at teaching job I could not refuse. So I put my shop on vacation and traveled the country for 10 years. 2 years ago I started growing microgreens for local chefs. Then covid hit. Now I am quarantined at home thinking about all the dreams left unrealized and all of the special places I have been.
No place on Earth gives me a sense of wonder like being in a wild or ancient forest. My body hums with the energy of that ecosystem. Despite the magic in the forests, World Watch magazine estimates, almost 270,000 trees are either flushed or dumped in landfills every day worldwide! And as more and more countries take on the American lifestyle, this number is only projected to grow. All of this at a time when we need our trees like never before.
By reducing our dependence on single use paper products we can save millions of lives. Because a forest is not just the trees. It is the birds, the mammals, the marsupials, the arachnids, the worms, the microbes. And most importantly, healthy forests sequester carbon to help slow climate change.
Did you know that the average person in the US spends approximately $120 each year on disposable paper products? For the same cost, a person could switch to reusable options which generally last 2-5 years. Instead of throwing your money away, you could be saving hundreds of dollars!
Starting Sunday 11/22/20 my Etsy shop will be having a store wide 20% off sale! You can take advantage of these discounts until 12/2/20.

I am super excited about rekindling this aspect of my life and I hope we can work together to create a community around solving waste and climate change problems.
