Cara & Marine
Founders of Be Nice


Marine and I have just launched an awesome eco, green, super fresh, organic t-shirt company, “be nice”, and thankfully just in time for the Holidays. : P You can check out our web site at . The designs are original and we do the screen printing in our very own Spanish Harlem 5 floor walk-up.

We are just starting out, and doing it all manually, which it turns out is a lot of work. :] We definitely put a part of ourselves into each shirt we create. I even invented two of the colors, one is a soft blue used on the “benice” shirt and the other is a rich green I use on the “Certifiably Organic” shirt.

I’ll miss the shirts, but it is cool knowing someone is out there wearing something you put your mojo into. That should be our slogan, “For some good ass mojo, buy yourself a super fresh shirt”

Be nice.


With that said…

The Day After An Inconvenient Truth

The Day After An Inconvenient Truth via e-mail, a gift from me to you.

You’re Welcome. :]

In previous Friday shopping entries I would list three items you could buy, but I have decided I would rather focus on just one product per shopping entry. The reason is it’s easier to focus and provide more information one one product, in comparison to three. OK, now that we have discussed the changes, lets move on.

Here is a really cool idea from Desert Sweet Organic.

In a pristine high desert farm in Arizona, 141,000 certified organic apple trees (Choose from Gala, Red, Golden, Granny Smith, or Fuji apple tree) are up for sale.

You can send 10-lb gifts boxes that contain certified organic apples from your very own apple tree to whoever, for $11.50 plus shipping, plus the one time cost of the tree and yearly horticulture. Prices of the trees range between $200-$250 depending on the tree and yearly horticulture is $45 a year.

Simply send them your gift list and they’ll do all the work for you. They take care of your tree and send the apples to your gift recipients every year it produces fruit, for as long as it lives. These trees have approximately 20 more years of fruit producing life.

If anyone cares I love Gala apples. ;)


It’s Friday, which means it is time for green shopping ideas and alternatives to unsustainable consumerism. :) Yay!


First, let’s start with the Rust Belt company. Rust Belt is a collaborative work of two designers, Anna Bario, of Field & Fountain, and Page Neal, of F190 [there isn’t a web site yet, at least not one I could find]. It is a line of casual jewelry that is crafted from re-purposed materials [like salvaged metals and chains] using low-impact, environmentally conscious practices. The designers launched Rust Belt with a concern for “working in an industry of luxury built on mining and refining systems that have enormously negative environmental & social impacts.” Bario and Neal came together to create the Alluvial collection. I bought the Oji Ring from the Alluvial collection for Marine and my one year anniversary and love the one-size-fits-all, textured sterling silver double band. It is just so beautiful and bright. I love not only the ring, but the packaging and concept. Nice work ladies!!!




Next, my new favorite bag…flip & tumble. I got one today and love it. The picture above is what the bag looks like open and here is what mine looks like when I’m not using it…

Ball BAg

It is easy to throw in my other bag, to have whenever I need it. It is a delight as it weighs nothing. It is also really easy to ball back up, which is important. To watch a video on how it all works, click here. I’ll see how it takes to weight, but so far so good [again I have only used it once and had it less than 24 hours. :D].


Glose Vase

Lastly are products I have not used yet, but seems cool. They are Rechargeable Atmosphere Bowls and Vases, which allows you to control 7 color combinations to change at random or to be set at a particular color. Only three hours on the included smart charger will provide a decorative and fun glow to an area for up to 8 – 10 hours continuously. Each bowl and vase is dishwasher safe and includes an environmentally friendly Ni-Mh AA battery.

Why they are Green…

* Reduces the use of non-renewable resources
* Utilizes LED lights
* Smart charger prevents overcharging and wasted electricity




Livestock production is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions measured in CO2 equivalent, a share 38 percent higher than that emitted by all the world’s vehicles. Domesticated animals worldwide are the source of 37 percent of all human-induced methane, with most of that coming from intestinal fermentation of ruminants. They also are the source of 65 percent of human-induced nitrous oxide, the great majority from manure. Methane and nitrous oxide are exceedingly more potent greenhouse gases than carbon dioxide. Livestock are also behind almost two-thirds of all human-induced ammonia emissions, which contribute significantly to acidification of ecosystems.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
