“Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children”
~ Kenyan Proverb

I just found this quote today and it reminded me of why I created the business I did.  I believe that what we do today affects our children and grandchildren etc..   I heard  a quote yesterday about a group of people who when first greeting each other would ask “How are the children?”.  This had such an impact on me.   What if we all did ask that question before we did something?  How would that change the way people create or do things.  If we really treasure our children, our future shouldn’t that be the question we are asking?

    Dear Our Childrens Earth

    What a lovely philosophical blog. It reflects the true heart of your business. Thank you for posting that insightful thought. I believe asking that question would not only effect product design, consumption and political decisions but additionally it would impact every facet of the human choice.

    In peace and happiness
