I met Kelli Lewton-Secondino at Eastern Market here in Detroit this past weekend and she sure knows organic cooking. Pure food 2 u is a delivery service that has a great menu of delicious organic meals and treats for active moms or corporate busy bodies. Check out the menus at www.purefood2u.com or stop by the Eastern Market this Sat June 27 from 10-12pm for some on site cooking demos.
This is a great cause and the bags have been updated this time with disco sequins and foddery, but the bummer part is that they are only available at Bergdorfs in NYC. Hopefully you can purchase them online this summer, but any charity helping kids is worth a trip to NYC.....right? www.feedprojects.org

The team from AShirtBag started this week finishing up our educational program "7 things you can do in 7 days to save our environment" at Logan Elementary, and it was a big smash. The kids replanted the trees they were given into larger pots for planting later this summer in the city of Detroit.I would like to thank all of the people that donate to our cause and the teachers at all of the schools in the DPS for all the hard work they did teaching the kids about recycling and why it is important to grow trees and save the earths natural resources. Bravo everyone.

The people at Coke are testing out some new bottle design made from sugar cane and molasses. They say that 30% of the bottles are going to be made from plant materials? This is a great step for this large company to start making some environmentally packaging. Right on Coke
