Earth Day 2013

Happy Earth Day. I love that there is an "Earth Day", even though I believe everyday is Earth day. I remember growing up in grade school and planting a tree each Earth day. This year I have a goal a little larger than planting one tree, and would like your help. I would like to donate to the canopy project.

"The Canopy Project plants trees that help communities - especially the world's impoverished communities - sustain themselves and their local economies. Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities to achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air and help stave off the effects of climate change. That's why, earlier this the year, Earth Day Network made a commitment with the Global Poverty Project to plant 10 million trees over the next five years in impoverished areas of the world.
Our campaign to defend critical forests has just begun and your support is key to our success. Today, for every $1 you donate, we will plant trees where they are most needed - in areas such as Haiti, Uganda, Brazil, Mexico and urban areas in the U.S. "
So today through the end of the month, each sale made at The Hive I will donate $1 for every $10 in sales. My goal is to be able to donate $100, or 100 trees.
Have you been eyeing something special? Use Canopy10 to get 10% off orders over $10. 
What do you have to loose?! You get awesome organic goodness, 10% off AND you will also be helping plant trees all over the world! What do you say? 
Please spread the word and help me accomplish this lofty goal.

vote for us..

Supporting local and/or small businesses is my moto. My husband and I feed ourselves by supporting our local farms through our Farmer's Markets, feed our dogs by supporting our locally owned pet shop, shop via handmade outlets (Etsy, local markets, antique shops, mom and pop shops) and dine out at independently owned restaurants, who also support our local economy. 

I see change on the horizon. So many more people are living their lives the way we do and it makes me feel awesome to know, that not everyone wants "the cheapest" and runs to their huge big-box store. Many people and saying no to that lifestyle and saying, Let's support the little guy.

So I'm asking for your help. I need your votes. You can vote one time each day from now until May 12th. They are going to pick the top 15, and award them with $5,000 to help toward their business goals. $5,000 could bring a lot of change to this business and bring it to the next level. I'd love your help in trying to get there.

Support the little guy!

The Launching

Today is a really exciting day for us here at The Hive. Today we launch our own blog as well as our rep referral program!

After months of deliberation and toying with wanting The Hive to have it's own 'personal' blog, I have decided to put it altogether and get this party started. I'm sure over the upcoming weeks there may be some tweaks in the layout, but my vision is to keep it crisp and clean and to focus on our products - not on fancy-dancy bloginess. 

My goal with this blog is to have a place to share all the on goings and behind the scenes of The Hive. A place to promote sales and giveaways, but also focus on the business and be able to showcase different products and give our loyal lovers of organic goodness a place to see whats new prior to it being released in my shop. (soon to be shops, more on that soon!)

Another awesome launch (which I let out of the bag yesterday on my personal blog) is our new referral program. What does this mean for you all?! That now, just by spreading the word of how awesome our products are (I may be a little bias here) YOU can now earn FREE products and gift certificates! Go check it out!

To celebrate the launch of the site, save 15% off any purchase of $10 or more with code launch15! This offer is valid now through April 19th.
