For Thanksgiving - Simple Gifts

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we want to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight
'Till by turning, turning we come round right.

Shaker hymn.

Happy Thanksgiving to One and All.

Babynut Turns 4! Organic Products Website Is Good for Babies and Good for the Planet.

The web-based business,, will celebrate its fourth birthday on November 6, 2007. Owner and manager of Babynut, Saralee Sky, said, “I started out wanting to offer natural products to support mothers and babies. Now I realize that natural products support the health of our planet as well.”

Ms Sky went on to say, “90 million acres are devoted to the production of cotton worldwide, consuming 25% of all pesticides used on our planet. I now understand that supporting mother and babies is not enough. I must also protect and honor Mother Earth by offering products whose production does not add to pollution or global warming. I also try and investigate how all of my product offerings are manufactured, making sure that workers are treated fairly and paid a living wage.”

Based in Bellingham, Washington, Babynut does business solely on the World Wide Web. Babynut’s mission is to provide natural, organic and alternative products, and support for pregnant and adopting families, babies and toddlers.
