  • Savers

    A tremendous amount of inventory comes through Savers' doors every day and while we see the potential in every donated item, not every donation we receive is appropriate for our sales floor. However, true to our enterprising spirit, Savers takes care to preserve the value of each item. As a result of Savers' innovative approach to textile reuse, the company has become an industry leader in textile recovery and recycling, with over 90 percent of all clothing items received — hundreds of millions of pants, tops, coats and shoes — avoiding disposal annually.Textiles are repurposed as insulation and metals from clothing and electronics are sold for their raw value. Savers has also begun to bale plastic for groups that are able to create valuable and eco-friendly post-consumer goods. Last year alone, Savers prevented more than 650 million pounds of reusable goods from entering the waste stream – equivalent in weight to more than 3,000 Boeing 737 airplanes.The goods we sell to our reuse and recycling customers also supply small business overseas, bolstering economic development in emerging markets. The Savers team is discerning in who they choose to do business with, and we're careful not to sell to any recycler whose operations fail to uphold our values of sustainability and ingenuity. In 2014, we created more than 1,200 jobs and provided 513 million pounds of products to small businesses around the world.In the rare case when Savers is unable to find a new purpose for unused goods, the company works to compact the materials and partners with waste management companies to responsibly dispose of them. Savers takes care to select waste management partners that closely monitor their freight.Our forward-looking commitment to creating a more sustainable world is showcased in our Community Impact Report, which can be downloaded at www.savers.com/impact.

  • Savvy Rest Natural Bedroom

    ORGANIC FOOD, ORGANIC MATTRESSMost people dislike the idea of eating foods that are contaminated with pesticide residues or feature more chemical names than natural ingredients on their labels. Given the choice and the resources, many opt for organic foods to avoid chemicals that can cause cancer, neurological damage or other serious health problems in the long term.Clean food's an easy thing to focus on. But what else matters?A little here, a little thereSmall amounts matter. Chronic chemical exposure is defined as continuous or repeated contact with a toxic substance over a long period of time. There are traces in food, significant amounts in household cleaners, and often-overlooked off-gassing vapors and dust that slowly emanate from foam-filled furnishings and other household items. Together, these have added up to an unprecedented chemical load in our blood, tissues and brains. Infants and children are the most vulnerable to this toxic buildup because they breathe in much more air per body weight than adults do (and because they play on the floor).But these poisons aren't good for anyone.Many foods and most mattresses and sofas have something in common in terms of toxic chemicals. That is flame retardants. These dangerous compounds have permeated our air, water and soil so much that up to 20% of our exposure to flame retardants comes, incredibly—from eating them.But I don't eat my furniture...Yes, but you know the dust motes you see floating in a sunbeam? Ordinary house dust is a primary source of chemical exposure in the home—much of it created by slowly disintegrating mattress and furniture foams. Most of the dust is microscopic and hard to remove fully. Yet when we touch or breathe in these particles, we also take in small amounts of all the chemicals they have absorbed.Flame retardant and other endocrine-disrupting (hormone-altering) chemicals have been linked to a host of serious health consequences, from cancer to obesity, infertility, and developmental brain disorders such as ADHD and autism.So if you'd like to start figuring out how to avoid unnecessary chemical exposure, you'll want not only to eat organic when you can—but to sleep and rest organic, too.Organic mattresses and sofas made with pesticide-free organic fabric and batting—plus natural latex foam rubber without chemical flame retardants—will not add toxic dust to your indoor environment. That helps protect everyone, but especially children, whose sticky fingers are magnets for dust particles that wind up in their mouths.One step at a timeOrganic living will benefit every member of the family. More good news is that no matter when you start, you will be reducin

  • Our Kids, Our Choice

    Please stop by our booth and sign the SB277 Referendum petition!The SB 277 (forced vaccination law) Referendum is being led by former CA State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly. Thousands of Californians are currently working to qualify the SB 277 Referendum for the November 2016 ballot.Parents are being forced to give their children every single vaccine (69 doses total) & booster mandated by SB 277 in order for them to attend public, private, charter school and even daycare and pre-school. This law is an assault on parent's rights and personal freedom. SB 277 strips away the religious and personal belief exemption that until now existed for California families. Parents are being silenced and told to step aside when it comes to having a say in the health of their children.Volunteers have been on the ground from the inception of the Referendum and have had great success in collecting signatures and building a strong network of allies.As California goes, so goes the Nation...people across the country have asked to help. You can also help by donating on our GoFundMe page at www.gofundme.com/SB277Referendum.By successfully qualifying the SB 277 Referendum, we will ALL send a resounding message that WE THE PEOPLE will not give up our freedoms without a fight.Together, we can do this. If personal freedom and medical choice are important to you, please help us to meet our goal!Help us make history by putting the question of "forced vaccinations" on the ballot for the people to decide.California is ground zero. And it's everyone's battle to fight!You can find more information on this effort at our booth or by visiting www.SB277Referendum.com

  • 3 Green Sisters and Ja Ja Ja Purses

    3 Green Sisters and Ja Ja Ja Purses and Needle Art Bags was founded 14 years ago by three sisters, Linda, Jennie and Suzanne. Moving away from the disposability concept that has grasped this nation of convenience, the sisters embrace up cycling,and re purposing. It give the sisters a sense of accomplishment and pride when they creatively transform our discards into unique and practical pieces. You may see Grandpa's old jeans gingerly swaying on the hip of a school girl or a piece of drapery that once hung on the windows of an old English home, adorning your table. Each piece of fabric is inspected, washed when necessary, Then its designated purpose is chosen.

  • Easy Turf

    Your drought solution has never been greener.Due to the drought, recent water restrictions have required southern Californians to cut their individual water usage by up to 25 percent. On average, local homeowners reportedly use 108 gallons of water per day, more than half of which is utilized on outdoor lawns and gardens. While indoor conservation is vital, the area of greatest impact remains homeowner's lawns. And despite dangerously high water usage, many southern Californians still have dry, brown lawns. A growing sense of duty to conserve resources coupled with the continuing need to maintain one's yard has prompted residents to consider viable alternatives to traditional landscaping.

  • Murchison-Hume

    Why use plant-based cleaners AND to they really work?"Murchison-Hume was the culmination of frustrations I had as a young mother, looking for safe cleaning products that would actually work. My youngest son had been diagnosed with allergic sensitivities to the chemicals present in most common cleaning products (especially the so-called "green" ones) so I had to rethink my options. The more I learned about household chemicals, the more I realized that I was actively polluting my home environment with the stuff from the supermarket. Bottom line? Most cleaning products were toxic, ugly or didn't work. They needed a makeover and I figured I was just the girl to do it!"
