Let's Give It Up for Shaw!!!!!! *clap clap clap*

We want to make Shaw your new best friend, just like you are our new best friend :D Shaw does amazing things for the environment, and since we know you love it like your own child, we thought you might be interested to know that Shaw does too. Now, where to begin.... To help us stay on track we're going to focus on carpeting. Have no fear, we won't be trying to sell you straw carpeting! No, no this carpeting is pretty, soft, and has s-t-y-l-e...style. How about sustainability? Well, Shaw uses a great little method called cradle-to-cradle meaning they take used products, make them into pretty carpet products, recycle it, and use it all over again. It goes round and round! Most place however use a yucky cradle-to-grave method where they take down poor trees to make materials and then throw out whatever is left over. Poor little wasted green buddies... If we haven't convinced you yet that Shaw's a great guy, then how about this, he's going to do your recycling FOR YOU!!! Yep! Once you've ripped that shag carpeting up from your disco days, you can drop it off at any one of Shaw's carpet collection spots. This includes one in Columbus! Well we could just go on and on and on and on...and on about Shaw, but you should just check him out for yourself:

Hey! You! Put a cork in it!

You ever walking around your house and think "Gee, I really need to remember to do XYZ, I wish I could make a note and pin it to the floor." Well, this is kinda like that, but not really at all. It's cork, on the floor, in fact, it is the floor!! Cork flooring is so awesome even Frank Lloyd Wright used it in his houses! He used this stuff all over the place. He used it for the floors, the walls, even IN the bathroom. If it's in the bathroom, you know what that means? It's water proof! You can even have it in the kitchen and drop dishes on it without them breaking. You can put it in the kids room, let them romp around on it with the dog, no problem. It's softer then tile but hard enough to handle high heels. This stuff even feels warm during those cold winter mornings! Best of all, it has a super low impact on the environment!! With sustainable harvesting and near zero by product waste, it's the perfect flooring for those feeling boring. It even comes in nifty colors/patterns/designs like burnt orange, ocean blue, whiskey brown, emerald green and much more! Have we reeled you in yet? Message us and we'll point you in the right direction.

Whoa...whoa... What's with all the Snow?

Where have you been all our life?!? So, we took a bit of a break. We're sorry!! Can you forgive us... Our blogger (namely myself) was off galavanting in far away lands. No fear though my lovelies, I am back with vengeance! I promise to tell you if it's ever going to happen again.

So, "the time has come the walrus said, to talk of many things..." Let's talk of summer nights and pretty lights and whatever that path brings. We know it feels like the sun may never show it's bright, shiny, orbital head again, but just as the world turns, so do seasons change. As spring and then soon summer start to poke their heads, we start to remember what it feels like to be warm in both our hearts and in our fingers and toes. As we think of those warm summer nights spent in the back yard with the kids running around, hot dogs and marshmallows sprawled about, what a better way to remember these moments then by seeing it! This is where these totally awesome and totally blue sky friendly, sun bricks come in. These guys will lead you not only up your driveway (because they're so sturdy they can hold the weight of your car), but also lead you down the path to those giggly kiddies with chocolate in their hair. By using solar power, these golden bricks can light up your night for up to 8 hours of fun! They're also easy to instal with the ol' switch a roo with your ordinary bricks. So Dorothy, if we've got your attention, message us and we'll help you make your own yellow brick road!
