Wednesday Wag Out!

Moms zoo pal Jen told her about CertainTees. CertainTees was started by an artist named Lee after she read The End of Nature by Bill McKibben. According to their website, Certaintees is a "project" concerning human nature and confronting our current need to adapt our habits dramatically and quickly in a world where our tools have become far swifter than our wisdom. CertainTees is a for-profit that promotes the work of 6 non-profit partners by contributing $5 per online tee purchase to a non-profit purse. Check out their cool designs at
Mom just bought shampoo and conditioner from EO, a company that is working collectively to make responsible, sustainable and authentic personal care products. EO stands for essential oils and it is a family owned and operated certified organic manufacturer of personal care products using the highest grade natural and certified organic ingredients. According to their website, they use ingredients that have uniquely beneficial traditional and therapeutic properties. They do not use synthetic colors, fragrances, or harsh chemicals in their products and they make their bottles from recycled PET bottles that have been collected and re-cast. Yeah to EO!

Plantable Thank You Cards
Why send an ordinary thank you card when you can send one that grows and blooms? The people at Satinbox bring us a unique thank you card set of eight with matching envelopes. After receiving and reading the 4" x 6" card, the lucky participant can plant the card in a pot of soil and watch it grow. Each set contains Bird's Eye, Clarkia, Coreopsis, Poppy, Catchfly, and Snap Dragon. It's like sending a gift along with a card - what a great idea! Head on over to to get your own set. And don't feel guilty if you don't want to send all eight!
