Giving Gifts That Benefit The Planet – prAna

This season I’m focusing on finding gifts for my lovely family that will encourage growth, happiness and peace.  That could be as literal as giving a beautiful Amaryllis or interpreted metaphorically as sharing a product that is good for our environment.  I was recently introduced to a clothing line that checks all the boxes, and you too can give gifts that benefit the planet when you chose from – prAna.

More than ever, people just like you and me are seeking ways to spread positivity in our country. One way to do that is to make sure every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet.  I’ve discovered a great line of clothes that fit the bill –  prAna. The cool clothing line prAna offers organic, hemp, sustainable, and fair trade items so that consumers feel great about the things they wear and the items they give.

I decided to take my new Mariette Dress out on my recent Small Business Saturday shopping trip last weekend.

I’m going through that “delightful” time in my life where I could break out in a sweat in the freezing cold. Argh. I was very curious how I would handle this material and, I’m very happy to report, that I felt very comfortable in this sweater dress.  Fabric consists of Organic cotton blend sweater knit, 70% Organic Cotton / 30% Acrylic.

See How Women Are The Real Power Behind Social Media

Studies show that women are taking over social media. Women share information more than men, connect with brands more online and gather their news from social media.  What do you think of these findings?

Again and again (*ahem* slight blog name drop ;-> ) studies prove that women encourage more communication than men. So is it really that surprising that women are leading in the area of social media? Check the chart below for all the fun percentages and graphs:

What does this information mean to our current world? Do you feel it will increase respect for women’s voices and choices?  It should.  It’s a very serious issue in our world and it boggles my mind that, in this day and age, women are still fighting for equal pay for equal work.  When will some men stop being so afraid of women?

Our voice is growing stronger.
