Shains: for Kids, Teens, Big Kids, and Everyone in Between

We've got shains (state how action is a necessary solution) 
in the store and they're always a big hit.

Even better they're made of completely recycled and recyclable materials, were born right here in Los Angeles and are ever-evolving.  With the letter and icon add-ons, you can spell out any message you want, whenever you want.  So, if you've got a message, an action, a solution to share--you can let it be known with what you wear.

Happy Farmer Composter!

Food waste often doubles around the holidays.  Doubles!  (And the average American gains one pound from what does make it to mouths as well.)

One way to tackle the mounds of food when leftovers and giving it to friends and neighbors won't cut it is composting it.

The Happy Farmer Composter makes it pretty simple.

Made from 70% recycled plastic and suitable for indoor/under the kitchen sink use, it utilizes bokashi, a combination of bran and sawdust and microorganisms, to ferment and break down your food scraps in only about ten to fourteen days.  After a couple of weeks, you've got nutrient-rich liquid plant food for your garden or growing veggies.  Meat and dairy are even acceptable with this kind of system (perfect for sour cream and turkey!).

Our savvy staff can fill you in on all the details in the store so you can become a happy farmer or make someone else one this holiday.

Buddha Nose

Those of us who have sampled our new aromatic balms from Buddha Nose can attest to their decadent, exuberant scents and effects.

The booster salve does just what it says--boosts your immunity and your spirits.  My post-booster salve bike ride was exuberant indeed.

And the bodhi balm is a surefire way to destress and peace out, way out.

Made with healing in mind from organic essential oils, Buddha Nose products are zen or zippy, depending on your mood.  We've got them in the store for 20.00.

Yes, we've got em.  Perfect for stuffing the stockings and stocking the stuffings of folks who are any shade of green, the set of six Chelsea Green Guides includes the A to Z of basic sustainable living: biking to work, greening your office, water, composting, recycling and energy.

Water Conservation Ordinance

The LADWP is getting serious about saving water these days.  If you didn't already know, we want to share with you that there is a new conservation ordinance in effect.

It's great to know about because, well, it helps save our city's precious resource.  It's also good to know about because fines are in effect for certain water no-no's.

Here's a rundown of the H2O DON'TS:

*Don't use water to wash down hard surfaces like driveways.  (Brooms will do the job and provide a workout at the same time.)

*Don't serve water to restaurant customers unless they ask for it.

*Don't water your yard during the rain.

And DO's:

*Fix leaky faucets to save 20 gallons of water drip, drip, dripping down your drain.

*Adjust your sprinklers (if you have them) so there's no water wasted on the pavement--that'll save 500 gallons a month and prevent runoff.

*Run only full loads of laundry.

And if you own your own washing machine, you can get a $250 LADWP rebate for a new, high-efficiency model that can save 50% of the water you use in a year on the most water-heavy task inside the house.  Find out how.

Nonprofit of the Month: Baby2Baby

We like to feature at least one not for profit every month from our Los Angeles area community.

This month, Baby2Baby has our attention.

With shelters in more need than ever this year, Baby2Baby gets clothes and other kids' gear to those who need it most. Started by three friends, this little organization makes it easy to do good in our own backyards.

Here's how it works: every month, 12 local organizations put in their donation requests for baby and kid stuff of all kinds.  And you can help pass it along!

There are opportunities to donate gently used items for ages one to four (here are the drop-off spots), organize a baby shower to collect gifts or put on a toy/clothes drive.

You can also volunteer yourself or your youngins to help package everything up.

Or you can donate to the cause (a great way to participate in the season of giving as a group).

It feels good to give to a good cause.

Green Must-Haves/Dos for the Holidays

We at All Shades want to wish you the happiest of holiday seasons in 08!

Nobody wants to take the fun out of the holidays, including us.  There are loads of ways to load up on holiday fun and meaning while being conscious of our impact on the environment at the same time.

Here are a few to consider:

By switching to LED-powered holiday lights you'll save up to 80% of the electricity conventional incandescent string lights eat up.  They'll even last you 20 years!

For no-waste gifts, choose those with less packaging (we've all spent mornings trying to cut plastic and undo twist-ties) and wrap your gifts in found objects around the house like reused packing paper, old stationary you don't plan on using, newspapers, or beautiful bits of fabric you may have lying around.

Speaking of gifts, make sure to get ones that will be good for the world and good for the getter.  90% of everything manufactured ends up in a landfill within a year in the U.S.  Pretty shocking.  So make sure to be mindful of the kinds of things you're getting your loved ones so that they'll stay on or in their drawers, kitchen, walls, desks, and closets for years and years to come.

Consider getting a rosemary bush or indoor plant for your Christmas tree.  If you want a big one, go for the real deal as the artificial ones are plastic-heavy and can't be mulched in January. Find out more about recycling your live holiday tree from the L.A. Bureau of Sanitation.

We'll be sharing many more less-impact holiday ideas at our FREE workshop, How to Have a Green Holiday on Sunday, December 14th at 10:00 a.m.! Hope to see you there.

Clean Your Space/Trash Free Street Clean-Up

This Saturday you can help the Surfrider Foundation clean up Silver Lake along Sunset Boulevard as part of its "Clean Your Space" campaign.

The importance of cleaning up the streets (and parking spaces and driveways and rain gutters) is this: everything on the street gets washed into the catch basins and into the L.A. River and out to sea when it rains.  So, all the stuff like candy wrappers, cigarette butts, car oil, and contaminants like pesticides and chemical cleaners catch a wave out to the Pacific.  

And those contaminants contained in storm water or runoff aren't good for marine animals, the aquatic habitat, or humans who like swimming either.  Never fear though--we can all pitch in to help!

If you're a Silver Laker or other Angeleno who wants to clean up the beach in your own backyard, join Surfrider at:

Saturday, December 6th
9:30 a.m. to 12: 30 p.m. 
On Sunset between Matlman and Manzanita
Check-in at Sunset Junction

Speaking of Saving Resources: Water

Eartheasy has 25 ways to help you save 10 gallons of water a day in your home.

And we've got a list of tools to help you as well:

Faucet aerators can reduce your water use by up to a gallon per minute (280 gallons per month)!  And they're easy to install and super inexpensive to boot.  Perfect for kitchen and bathroom sinks.

Evolve showerheads reduce water flow to just a trickle once your shower is the perfect, toasty temperature.  So, if you're doing something else while waiting for the water to warm, you won't waste nearly as much to the pipes.

Showerhead shut off valves are simple and super-savers.  Just flip the switch while you're lathering up or shaving instead of having to mess with the bath fixtures.  Flip again when you need water again--a navy shower made easy.

Smart faucets operate similarly. When you're not pushing a convenient lever, the water flow stops at the sink to give you time to lather your hands with soap.  When you're ready to rinse, you simply lean on that lever again.

Shower timers will keep you on track for your desired water-conserving shower.

Shower buckets can be used to collect water while you're waiting for the stream to get hot enough--instead of going down the drain, it can be used to water the plants!

Time to get saving.

bring your own bag

Since it's Saving Energy and Resources month at All Shades, we want to share with you a tried and true way to save both that's so simple it has its own acronym: BYOB.

By bringing your own shopping bag to the grocery store, farmer's market and any other place where you leave with more than you walked in with, you save the materials and energy that go into making those throwaway bags.  Sure, you can reuse them, but why not go farther to reducing first? That saves petroleum, water, and trees at the start.

We know you're on board with this, which is why we carry Chico bags, Ecolution bags of all kinds, and our very own ASOG variety.

My Own Bag, has a whole host of facts and figures on bags and bag consumption worth checking out.  For example, the plastic bag was introduced in 1977 and we now use 14 billion of them in the U.S. alone every year, requiring 12 million barrels of oil to produce. (And those bags that seem harmless do harm thousands of marine animals and stick around for hundreds of years.)

Read even more on the subject of ever-present bags here.

To bringing your own this holiday shopping and eating season!

More T-Day Tips

We wanted to share with you the incredible, edible tips from last weekend's podcast of KCRW's Good Food.

There are plenty of recommendations for how to have a truly memorable, creative Thanksgiving from the perfect bird-brining solution to sweet potato salad to serving only foods for which your kids are actually grateful.

There's also a feature on a contributor to SuperVegan who shared plenty of meat and poultry-free ideas for a green, grateful feast.  The recipe for chestnut soup with porcini mushrooms and root veggies is on the Good Food site here.

Thanksgiving: A Merry, Green Meal

We at All Shades wish you a merry, magical Thanksgiving on Thursday!

In that spirit, we want to tell you about some T-Day tips.

First, The Pioneer Woman has some wonderful recipes (along with how to brine a turkey) to take care of your menu snafus.

And if you have yet to choose your turkey, we want to recommend making yours a free-range, organic bird. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even choose a heritage variety. Heritage birds are breeds that were foregone for the industrial tom breed we're used to seeing at the supermarket.  By getting one, you're supporting farmers, preserving traditional breeds, and getting delicious poultry to boot.

There are still some sustainable turkeys left at LocalHarvest, an organization bringing local farm products to chefs and eaters like us (a great resource all year round).

If you're skipping the turkey altogether, you can find some unique, delectable vegetarian recipes that will please as much as the 45 million birds that will be served on Thanksgiving from Nava Atlas.

And finally, here's our absolute favorite vegan pumpkin muffin recipe (just be sure to use vegan margarine!).  They are doughy, moist and a giant hit!   Enjoy.

Buying Local for the Holidays

We've gotten pretty well-versed in buying local, seasonal food. And in Los Angeles, we're lucky to have fabulous farmer's markets with delicious produce all year round.  Food grown nearby is more nutritious and fresher and saves big on fossil fuels compared to trucking it 1,500 miles from farm to family room. (Find your nearest Farmer's Market here.)

But what about other stuff, especially as we begin the hunt for holiday gifts?

By buying stuff for you and yours from an independent, local business, you support the economy of your very own community.  

According to Green Christmas, you also get to encourage what makes your neighborhood unique, get better, more personal service, promote competition and diversity, and make a huge economic impact in your own town (whereas if you buy from a big box store that money goes, well, somewhere else.)  

And on top of that, you get to cut down on environmental damage by getting more stuff that's locally made as well as locally sold.  Where else could you find incredible local, handcrafted soap covered in felted wool made by an employee at our local Trader Joe's?

We hope you'll stop in to see us and the other local, independent retailers, bookstores, service providers, and art galleries in Silver Lake and beyond as you plan your holiday purchases this year.  

(Here's a SL directory of local businesses and service providers; and here's a national one from the Organic Consumers Association.

After all, you can save gas and soak up the enviable fall weather by walking or biking to boot.

Saving Electricity: The Gadget Hall of Fame

We want to share with you some of our bestsellers for saving power in your home or apartment.

We've told you before about the Smart Power Strip.  It's so smart that it powers off what you've got plugged in when you're not using it. Pretty smart and pretty energy savvy.  And no clicking required.

We've also told you about the Kill-A-Watt.  You plug it into any appliance you've got and it automatically tells you how many kilowatt hours it's burning every minute, hour, or week.  Then, you make your decisions about which devices are sucking up too much juice to justify having them, and those that are worth their weight in gold for their efficiency.

Now, we'd like to remind you again of LEDs.  One LED can last 60,000 hours making it the most efficient over the long haul when compared to the 1500 after which a conventional lightbulb fizzles out.  Add to that how they don't have any mercury, can last for years, and can save you 80% on your lighting bill and the argument is pretty well-powered.  While they cost a pretty penny up front, you actually save money over the long haul.

We're happy to give you all the info you need as you make choices that will save power and save money at the same time.  Just give us a ring-- (323) 665 - 7454 or visit us online.

Election Sale Extended!

Our "in with the new" election sale has been extended to this Sunday, November 16th.

Come on in for a 30% discount on all kinds of good, green stuff to pamper you and to give as gifts for the upcoming holiday season.  See you soon!

Saving Energy Product of the Month: Solio Classic

What could be more efficient than harnessing the sun's energy to charge up the gadgets we depend on every day?

The Solio Classic universal charger fans out to soak up the sun for all kinds of handheld electronic gadgets--cell phone, MP3 player, digital camera, you name it.  Plus, it cuts waste by cutting out all those separate chargers for separate gizmos.  This charges them all--in one place.

For every hour you charge the Solio Classic in the sun, it'll give you 20 minutes of talking time or 50 minutes of listening time.  So, if you can pop it in daylight for a longer period, you'll be charged and ready to go for longer.  Plus, it holds its charge and can be uses in the wall as well if you just have to stay indoors one day.

And, come into the store to get yours--it's not like we're lacking for sunshine, even in November, even in February around here.

Last Sustainable Kitchen Product of the Month

If you're ridding your kitchen of plastic, your next question may be: "Okay, so now what do I put my leftovers, cut-up carrots and extra tomato sauce in?"

The answer: glass or stainless steel containers.

And we've got a new stainless steel option at ASOG.  Tramontina's handy stainless steel, enamel-coated containers stack together and are loads lighter than glass.

They're food safe and people safe and their only plastic part is the lid (kind of unavoidable).

Say goodbye to petroleum products and hello to an organized, snazzy, sustainable kitchen.

Trick or treat!

Just in time for your Green Halloween, we've got a sweet option for you to pass out to kids in costume on your porch or at your festival this Friday: Naturepops!

We've got big bags of individually-wrapped lollipops--a safety must-have for Halloween--and they're certified organic.  With only 30 calories per pop and a punch of flavor, they're a great alternative to regular fare.

Plus, they've got NO artificial ingredients (scroll down the page) or synthetic dyes.

That's giving em something good to eat for sure. (Yes, they still have sugar--evaporated cane sugar--but it is a holiday.)

One more thing: if you're concerned about the wrapping, it's made from totally compostable corn starch to boot. Pretty tricky.

Everything Bambu for Your Kitchen

Bamboo is a fast-growing and, thus, sustainable and natural plant material that can be made into all sorts of things from softer than soft towels to accoutrements for your kitchen.

And bambu is one of the premiere makers of bamboo kitchen essentials.

As holidays approach and things in your kitchen heat up, you may be looking for new versions of old things to accommodate your guests in a non-disposable, reusable sort of way.  

So consider modern, multi-colored bambu bowls to serve in and eat from--they're hand-shaped and finished with a waterproof, food-safe lacquer.

Indeed, bamboo is also used for cutting boards that are made from organically-grown bamboo.  Bamboo cutting boards have several advantages, among them that beyond being sustainable they are super hard, super durable, look beautiful, and are not very porous--keeping water and bacteria out.

For taking care of your new bamboo, we've got bambu's bamboo goo--a veritable spa treatment to keep your bamboo bowls, spoons, serving sporks, and cutting boards in ship shape.

When Art and Green combine, good things are born.  Like Poketo's recycled plastic wallets made by real, live artists.

Poketo is a source for all things arty and wearable in downtown L.A. 

We're pleased to carry a handful of wallets in our store now!
