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

2nd Thank you from Nancy O’Dell! September 10, 2010

A few weeks ago we got a thank you not from Ashby for the gifts she received through Jewels and Pinstripes. Well, we just received a 2nd thank you from Nancy herself 🙂 They must be extra excited about their great gifts, including SAMA! Read below for a copy of Nancy’s note!

Thank you so much for the AMAZING 3rd bday bag you sent Ashby. Everything in it is GREAT! Ashby has been walking around trying on and playing with everything!!

Much appreciated!

Sincerely, Nancy

Don’t forget to check out Nancy’s new book, “Full of Life”. When Nancy was pregnant with her baby girl, Ashby, she found herself saying often, “Why didn’t ya’ll friggin tell me that was gonna happen!” Nancy took notes during her pregnancy (the reporter in her never rests), so she would have memories of all the crazy, unexpected, scary, sometimes embarrassing things that happen during pregnancy. Now, she’s passing them on to expecting mothers and fathers so they won’t have to be as surprised as she was!

Scott Wolf and Family are Sama Fans!! June 3, 2010

https://i1.wp.com/images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20090401/300.wolf.wolf.lc.040109.jpghttps://i2.wp.com/img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2009/cbb/blog/091123/scott-wolf-birth-annc-3-500.jpg

Scott Wolf may be best known for playing the good-hearted, but perennially tragic Bailey Salinger on the underrated family drama “Party of Five” (Fox, 1994-2000), but to us here at Sama his family man side is what we are drawn to.

Actor Scott Wolf is a dad! The proud papa and his wife, Real World: New Orleans alum Kelley, welcomed their first child on Sunday, March 22nd, 2009. Baby boy Jackson Kayse Wolf weighed in at 7 lbs. “Kelley and I are having the time of our lives,” Scott shares.

We recently received a thank you from Scott:

WOW! Once again we were blown away by all of the gorgeous gifts for our sweet boy Jack. We are sorry we didn’t get to sooner, but we just finished out fifth move this year. Whew! Thank you a million times! We loved everything!

Sincerely,
Jack, Kelley and Scott [Wolf]

We wish you all the best!!

How to Go Green: Cleaning May 5, 2010

As you know, Sama is Organic Baby Clothing and we believe in all things Green!! Especially eco friendly clothing on the precious skin of our planets future leaders. But the point I want to make today is, if you are going to make the effort of BUYING organic, then please follow through and CLEAN with organic products as well. Organic cotton is all well and good, but don’t go and wash it in a bunch of chemicals and toxins, then how organic is it really?! Here are some Top Green Tips from planetgreen.discovery.com/

Wash up: Green laundry and washing

It’s quite possible that our war on germs is actually making things worse. Studies have shown that children brought up in over-cleaned houses are more likely to develop allergies, asthma, or eczema. The best thing you can do for sensitive baby skin is not to cover it with synthetic chemicals!! Wash nappies with pure soap and warm water. Make your own non-toxic cleansers with simple ingredients such as baking soda and vinegar. For more, see How to Go Green: Cleaning.

Avoid poor indoor air quality

It is not uncommon for the air inside a home or office to be more toxic than the air outside. This is because of the presence of toxic materials and substances and the fact that homes and buildings are better insulated than ever before (which is a good thing from an energy standpoint). Keeping windows open as often as possible allows fresh air in and keeps toxins flowing out. This is especially important when cleaning your home.

Be careful with antibacterial cleaners

The antibacterial and antimicrobial ‘cleaners’ that many people think are necessary, especially during cold season, don’t clean hands better than soap and water, and also add to the risk of breeding “super germs,” bacteria that survive the chemical onslaught and have resistant offspring. The FDA has found that antibacterial soaps and hand cleansers do not work better than regular soap and water, and should be avoided.

Help your home smell baking soda-licious

Baking soda not only removes those strange smells coming from your fridge, it’s also a great odor-eliminator for your carpet. Just sprinkle on a little baking soda to soak up some of those odors and then vacuum it up.

Design with clean in mind

Designing houses and other building with cleanability in mind can create spaces that are cleaner, healthier, and require fewer substances to maintain. In larger buildings, good cleanability can also be a big money-saver as cleaning costs can often add up to as much as half of a building’s total energy costs.

These are all great green clean tips!! For more visit planetgreen.discovery.com/

Sama gifted Gabrielle Reece and Brody Jo Sama Products!! April 26, 2010

Professional Volleyball player Gabby Reece was named Most Inspiring Collegiate Athlete in 1990 and has enjoyed tremendous success on the volleyball pro circuit. She began modeling in 1989 and her athletic figure has graced the covers of numerous magazines including Outside, Shape, Self, Elle and Life.

“I love being with my daughters in nature,” says the 6′ 2″ Reece. But this modern mom is hardly just about sports and the healthy life. She readily confesses to loving to sneak a little private time in front of the flat screen, the remote control in one hand and a piece of good chocolate in the other. And these are yet more reasons to love this Modern Mom: shes real and shes honest.

What’s your definition of a Modern Mom?

A modern mom is a juggler. As silly as it seems she’s almost like the woman in the 70’s Charlie commercial. She really is bringing home the bacon, nurturing the family and trying to still be vavavoom. I think a modern mom is a little too hard on herself and sometimes beats herself up for not being perfect. I salute all moms. (Reece told Disney Family.com ).

We are thrilled to have gifted Reece and Brody Jo with some of our latest Sama products!! We know you will make them look good! Thanks for the nice phone message through Jewels and Pinstripes!

Sama Baby LaunchesDenim Line for Earth Day

HOUSTON, TX – Gearing up for to the 40th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22nd, 2010, Sama Baby celebrates their new organic denim line. “Every day is Earth Day here at the Sama Baby office, so when everyone else in the word decides to join in we just get all tickled inside,” explained CEO of Sama Baby, Shivani Gupta.

Sama Baby’s organic denim line will be exploding onto the children’s fashion scene in March 2010 and will be available nationwide just in time for Earth Day, April 22nd, 2010.  Their jeans are high quality, organic, and affordable, much like the rest of their line, and are priced at $40 a pair. “People ask me why we use all-natural products when creating our garments. They say the designs are so adorable they will sell themselves, but that’s not enough for us. Yes, we want to create beautiful garments but not at the expense of our planet. We want to do our part. I know Sama can make a difference,” explained Head Designer Neha Gupta.

Staying true to their heritage, the Gupta’s produce Sama Baby products in India where the family frequently visits their cotton fields and oversees production. All of their products are fair trade and their farmers use organic vegetables as their rotation crop to replenish the soil and feed the cotton farmers. Shivani is proud member of The Organic Trade Association and Co-op America and she also supports a Jacksonville, Florida non-profit called Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies.
