Earth-Day Green Celebrity Gifting: Sunday April 22, 2012

The Artisan Group has teamed up with a one of their partner PR firms to create specialty gift bags for some of Hollywood’s high-profile environmentally-conscious “A-List Celebrities”. TAG will be gifting eco-friendly, organic, green and socially-conscious products from group members on Sunday, April 22, 2012.

SariBlue is super excited to have our business card included in this gifting opportunity and simply amazed at the celebrities who will be made aware of our shop. SariBlue was included in this opportunity because we fit into the eco-friendly profile of the Earth Day focus.

The SariBlue collection (Sari is pronounced “sutter”, means blonde/blondie/yellow in Turkish) uses exclusive Turkish handmade glass beads which are made using centuries old traditional methods to craft the beads.

This method may be one of the oldest eco-friendly recycling techniques around. Turkish artisans collect recycled glass pieces, mix them with special dyes and melt in their primitive adobe furnaces that burn naturally clean-burning pine logs. They shape the red hot molten glass, fuse colors together and create these amazing beads using only simple hand tools. Every bead fashioned has its own identity, lending every SariBlue piece its own distinctive nature. The collection ties together past and present in a distinctive, modern way. Our shop is very focused on finding other ways to support green efforts as well as supporting charities that are focused on spreading the efforts of sustaining the earth and teaching people to use local resourcing. We happily support The Samburu Project and The Walk for Water on March 25th.

Here is what Wikipedia says about Earth Day:

Earth Day is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth‘s natural environment. The name and concept of Earth Day was allegedly pioneered by John McConnell in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco. The first Proclamation of Earth Day was by San Francisco, the City of Saint Francis, patron saint of ecology. Earth Day was first observed in San Francisco and other cities on March 21, 1970, the first day of Spring. This day of nature’s equipoise was later sanctioned in a Proclamation signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations where it is observed each year. About the same time a separate Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970. While this April 22 Earth Day was focused on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes, who was the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations.[1][2] Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network,[3] and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year.[4] Numerous communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues. In 2009, the United Nations designated April 22 International Mother Earth Day.[5]
