2013 Earth Day Giveaway

Spring is such an exciting time of year with plenty of reasons to celebrate. Here at SariBlue we like to celebrate the change of the season, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and of course Earth Day. Earth Day is a great occasion to focus on the health of our planet.

Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year. The April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries every year. You can learn more about Earth day on the wiki page (where this info came from) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Day .

There is great information about ways in which Earth Day has impacted all of us globally and how you can support the efforts on The Earth Day Network. They coordinate amazing events and ways to participate in the grassroots effort of A Billion Acts of Green .

This year we celebrate Earth Day with a few of our friends by sharing an eco-friendly giveaway. SariBlue and the shops that are participating in this giveaway are all eco-friendly artisans. We hope you enjoy learning a little bit about these amazing women owned and run small shops and enter the giveaway for a chance to win some truly beautiful items. The rafflecopter has all the info on how to enter and we all appreciate your support. Please feel free to share this with your friends!

Meet Dr. Alexis Gopal: Creative Entrepreneur, Mother, Designer and Amazing Friend

It is no mistake that Alexis Gopal is our first featured artisan. She has been an amazing support to me and SariBlue. Her willingness to share her infinite knowledge about her business and life experience is invaluable.

Alexis opened her business in 2006, with a huge career change. She was a physician in private practice, working hard and missing out on time with her girls. She made a life-changing decision to leave her practice and start something totally new which allows time with her family and focus on what really matters to her. Alexis had been designing and creative since she was a child, painting, crocheting, and making jewelry. The inspiration for her designs: her daughters and nature.

Her generosity is amazing. Of course she is also a wonderful jewelry designer with an interesting life story. This chapter of her story is filled with great success and we wish her well on her continued journey. [Read more…]
