Did you know there's a Corporate Death Care industry?

That's right. And it seems that no aspect of our economy is immune to the temptation of greenwashing. Thankfully, there are more than 300 cemeteries and funeral homes across the country offering eco-friendly death care. The Green Burial Council is the standard-bearer for truth and transparency in death care.

Does the SFI EcoLabel Approve Forest Destruction?

I recently attended Eugene, Oregon's famous environmental law conference. In the entryway on the bottom floor of the building where the conference sessions were being held, there were a series of environmental organizational tables including TarSands Blockade, which is using non-violent direct action to stop the construction of KeyStone XL, and Forest Ethics, a national non-profit working to protect our forests. A giant banner hanging above the Forest Ethics table caught my eye. It said, "SFI: Certified Greenwash".

Our frames compliment most face shapes, and come in two widths. Small is designed to fit 3- to 5-year-olds, while large will fit most 5- to 7-year-olds. Our frames also come in three temple arm lengths. The temple arm length is the measurement, in millimeters, from the front of the frame to the tip of the temple along the length of the entire temple arm. You want the the temple arm to be long enough so the glasses don't perch at an angle above the ear. Most young children wear a temple length of 125. Each order includes a copy of our book "Princesses Wear Glasses." Once you receive the frames, take them to your optical provider, who will make sure they fit properly and add your child's prescription lenses.

Featured Certification

The Federal Trade Commission requires a product advertised as 'Made in USA' be "all or virtually all" made in the U.S. U.S. content must be disclosed on automobiles and textile, wool, and fur products. There’s no law that requires most other products sold in the U.S. to be marked or labeled 'Made in USA' or have any other disclosure about their amount of U.S. content. However, manufacturers and marketers who choose to make claims about the amount of U.S. content in their products must comply with the FTC’s 'Made in USA' policy. Note: Products made in sweatshops in the American territory of Saipan are allowed to carry this label.
