Two young entrepreneurial sisters making a difference with a fashion forward organic cotton baby clothing!

FEED Bag, Lauren Bush, and Whole Foods, the typical day of an entrepreneur! December 29, 2008

Helps so many!

So, I officially came up with a new name for myself:

Blogstar Rockstar. Feel free to use it on your own blog. I think its fierce, as Christian Siriano would say on Project Runway… Anyways, today was a super fun day for organic baby clothing. Yes the green movement is in, and ready to rumble!

I spoke to Lizzie Andrews, the stepsister of Lauren Bush – the genius behind the FEED Bag that helps SO many! She was interested in knowing more about me, Sama Baby, Organic Baby clothing, green ideas, and how I got to where I am now! I loved talking with her and educating her on organic cotton and the effects it has on the planet – all positive!  I never thought at 23, I would be able to speak to a senior in high school about my passions in life.

Then, I met with Whole Foods Bellaire (Houston) and Woodway (Houston), both of which loved the line and are excited about going local – on a whole different level – supporting Houston businesses.  I really love the support of going local, and the importance of helping small businesses.

I love being an entrepreneur and meeting so many cool new people who have passion!

Environmental Working Group published an article discussing pesticides in produce and gave the top 12 dirtiest produce, ones that we should buy organic because they have the highest amounts of pesticides used on them. These 12 are Peaches, Apples, Sweet Bell Peppers, Celery, Nectarines, Strawberries, Cherries, Lettuce, Imported Grapes, Pears, Spinach, and Potatoes. They give more information regarding differing produce on their website http://www.foodnews.org. This is a great reminder of the amounts of pesticides in our daily lives, especially our foods. This list is helpful because I know that sometimes it is hard to buy all things organic and this helps us give priority to those which are heavier on the pesticides and although none is best, as I have said before…baby steps!!!
