They meet their communities with culture drums, singing, and spiritual or spoken word, while providing referral services, and grief and spiritual counseling.

Lara Galinsky is an author, speaker, expert on working on purpose, and senior Vice President of Echoing Green, a groundbreaking nonprofit organization with the mission to unleash next generation talent to solve the world’s biggest problems.
She speaks and leads workshops at colleges, universities, corporations and nonprofits around the world.

Lara also created Do Something’s BRICK Award (now called the Do Something Award) to celebrate and financially support the most outstanding young leaders in America generating community change with demonstrated impact.
After five years at Do Something, Lara moved to Echoing Green, the organization she now helps lead and for which she runs the day-to-day operations. Echoing Green is best known for its flagship Fellowship program, which has awarded over 500 emerging social entrepreneurs in over 40 countries with more than $30 million in seed funding over the last twenty-five years.
Most recently, Lara launched Echoing Green’s newest program, Work on Purpose, which inspires and equips the Millennial generation to build lives and careers that are both right for them and good for the world. She is the co-author of two books that have become cornerstones of the program: Work on Purpose (2011) and Be Bold: Create a Career with Impact (2007).

Seven years ago Bob Garbowicz had 12 basil plants in his garden. He reaped a bountiful harvest that year and thanked God for the blessing. In the same breath he asked God what was he to do with all this basil. God told him to put it in olive oil and make pesto. He said, "I can do that!" For a year he tried different oils, cheeses, nuts, etc., until he achieved the original recipe with pine nuts. He went to bed that night and told his wife Cindy he was finished! She was happy he was done. He woke up the next morning and told Cindy he wasn't done. This product is not for everyone! There are people who cannot eat nuts, cheese, or tomatoes. He then had three more variations of the original recipe. Today Presto Pesto has eight different recipes with a ninth in the works.

Great things get better with time, an old saying Brennan Gerald learned at Maret High School in Washington DC. As a DC native, it was only right that he turned to his home town once he'd earned his collegiate bachelors degree in brand development/strategic marketing from The University of Delaware. Inspired to improve his health and overall energy, Brennan became vegetarian in 2008, soon followed by a transition to a completely plant based raw foods diet. His interest in healthy eating helped foster a new passion for making food that imparts wellness upon those who partake. As part of his goal to combat the staggering childhood obesity rate in DC, he founded Dffrnt Wrld Deli, a menu development, catering, and wellness coaching service that shows restaurants how to "green" up their menu with healthier plant based cuisine. His dream is to have more restaurants in DC offer vegan raw food options, this way people have healthy food options on a much larger consumable scale.

SeaGrass Handbags "Better than fair, fair trade"
Baskets of Cambodia, formed in 1996 in war-torn Cambodia, in villages surrounding the famous temples of Angkor Watt. In 2000 we expanded our operation to the outskirts of Phnom Penh in order to develop a unique line of purses, a line that incorporated traditional weaving and western style to create an entirely distinct look in purses. We started with a poor family of 8 headed by a single woman. Then she was sick and in need. Now she is healthy. Her daughters still sew and her son helps in the development of new styles. In the last 8 years Baskets of Cambodia has introduced this market to the world with innovations and new styles, and we now employ over 200 makers. You may see cheap (not inexpensive) copies of our original ideas, but you won't find better quality products inside and out. BOC is a company that is determined to deliver ever expanding wages back to the deserving people of Cambodia. We currently pay more than any producer we know of. The current modest salaries we support are consistently 2-3 what is considered to be "fair trade", and include other benefits as well. Baskets of Cambodia will continue to lead in this area as well in order to attract the highest levels of skill to the creation of our purse designs and other products. Buying an original style from an original company is your way of rewarding innovation, which is the lifeblood of meaningful development. Part of the philosophy of Baskets of Cambodia. is to create high quality products that lend pride and self esteem to all of people involved. We hope you'll soon be wearing one of our original creations and enjoying the compliments on our purses for their understated style and elegance, and in some cases down to earth practicality.
organic farming, cow protection, community, with spirituality
What if there was a boutique where you could exchange your too-skinny skinny jeans for a barely-used Marc Jacobs handbag—without spending a dime?
At the newly opened LA boutique, Give + Take, a girl can do just that. Give + Take is the first of its kind “swap boutique,” introducing a revolutionary, green shopping concept: pay by the month, not per item. A hybrid between informal clothing swaps and a traditional second-hand boutique, women exchange their previously loved designer clothing, shoes and accessories for merchandise in the store—all collected from other women with designer duds to trade.
For $25 - $55.00 (depending on plan you choose) a month, women bring in their previously loved clothing, are awarded points based upon the value (a $200 dress is worth $200 in points), and then can spend those points in the boutique—all at once or over multiple visits. The flat monthly membership fee allows women to exchange as much and as often as they would like without losing the value of their clothing.
Without the threat of losing value, women have incentive to move underused clothing out of the backs of their closets and into usable circulation once again—recycling and diminishing the need for new purchases. In fact, because this shopping model offers such amazing value—even fashionistas without an environmental conscience behave like eco-chicks!
It isn’t just shopping in our own closets—it’s literally shopping in the closets of hundreds of fashion-savvy women!
All products are Fair Trade, organic, tree free, recyclable, reusable,utilize renewable resources and unique. Most of the items are my original design in order to meet my high standard of quality.We provide practical,eco-friendly solutions for every day items. With advanced notice, most items can be customized.Visit us on Facebook and Twitter.
