Thanks to everyone who came out and made our Grand Opening a great success!  We had a lot of fun and hope you did too.  Congratulations to all of our gift basket winners and Vitality Tanning winner and thanks for picking up your prizes so soon!  If you missed it, here's a little clip from the news about it, featuring some of our great customers and our own Caitlin Hauser-Esper!
Water, Water Everywhere..

Us Michiganders are very fortunate to be sitting in the middle of the largest fresh water system in the world.  It may be easy for us to take our water for granted here in the Great Lakes State.  Though the occasional oil spill, dioxin plume, and lead water crisis reminds us - water is life, and quality matters.

For example, Frankenmuth Municipal water is sourced from Lake Huron, one of the highest quality sources of freshwater in the world, the risk of contamination was rated "moderately low" by the MI Dept. of Environmental Quality as of 2015.  Water - which was tested in a facility before making its way to our homes - may not be a biohazard, but still may contain trace amounts of chlorine, fluoride, and other chemicals you don't want to drink.  Whether you have a well or municipal water, contaminants, particulates,  and residues from industry and agriculture can still come through when you turn on your faucet.

Lucky for us, we have a wonderful system that not only purifies the water, but decontaminates and alkalizes water in a timely fashion with minimal waste. Try it! Your body will thank you.
Our Setup
  • Pre-filter for sediment and rust filtration
  • Pre-Carbon Filter to reduce chlorine and chemicals
  • Fluoride Filter to reduce fluoride
  • Filters harmful contaminants like lead, herbicides, pesticides, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), THMs, and MTBE (found in fuel additives).
  • Multi-barrier disinfection unit with:
    • 400 layer-membrane that filters down to 1/2 micron to remove Bacteria/Virus/Cysts
    •  UV light with 186 mJ of energy (which destroys any remaining bacteria or virus
  • (Optional)  Alkaline unit for increasing pH (to about 9-9.5) while adding a negative millivolt charge to the mineral water. 
Surprised to see what the city water supply still contains? Here's a used & clean filter.
From there, water can be filled from our NEW PUSH-BUTTON DISPENSER!  Simply line up your bottle under the spout, and push one of the buttons for the purest water around! 
This system will help reduce water waste from over-filling bottles, or trying to adjust flow.  Plus, it is easier to manage full 3-5 gal. jugs, just lift them a little over the lip.  Just as before, filling your own water bottles saves you and the environment from single-use plastic bottles.  Refills are still just $2 per gallon.

Taste the difference of water that's so good, you may find yourself or kids choosing WATER over sugary drinks!
LIVE FAIR One Product at a Time
May 12 is World Fair Trade Day!
This month, we are highlighting companies who value transparency and accountability in their supply chain, to improve the lives of the small producers across the globe whose labor provides some of our favorite commodities like coffee, chocolate, and cotton. 
Seen here is a scarf by Terra Natural Designs which makes Jewelry & Accessories from S. America.  These women and artisans make a living wage with work that allows for economic opportunity within their rainforest community, which helps preserve Amazon Rainforest habitat as well!
Fast Fashion is UNFAIR
If you have been shopping for clothes in the past decade, you may have noticed that the material used is getting thinner, stitching may be rather loose, and the clothes tend to wear out and fall apart more quickly.  This is the direct result of the "fast fashion" phenomena whereby styles change quickly, and clothes are not made to last.  The $9 shirt seems like a deal, but it may come at the expense of the environment and underpaid workers.
Some unsettling facts (from this Forbes article):
  • In the US, only 10% of donated clothes are resold, leaving 13 Trillion tons to go to landfills, where toxic chemicals and dyes can leach out.
  • 80% of our clothes are made by women ages 18-24 (maybe as young as 14), working an average of 14hr days for an average $3 per day.  Not enough to lift them out of poverty.
  • Cotton production is a water-intensive process.  Countries like China and India are already facing water shortages, made worse by increasing fashion demands.
  • The fashion industry’s CO2 emissions are projected to increase by more than 60% to nearly 2.8 billion tons per year by 2030.
Get off the Fast Fashion Train!  Choose quality clothes from ethical producers in styles right for your body, and you'll always feel fabulous!
