How we live green at Noir Naturals

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and we’re still thinking about green – green living, that is.  At Noir Naturals, we believe in sustainable practices and greener living.  Our Green America Silver Certification is important to us in the office and in our personal lives.  Not only does Noir Naturals keep it greener, our team members do, too.  We asked our team to share how they live greener lives and they each do something a little differently.

Charles:
I try to turn off lights in the house and my workshop to conserve electricity. I run a lot of appliances in my shop at any point in time. Before I leave for the day I double check that all burners are off, and plugged out as well. I am still working on getting into a routine to turn off TV’s in the house and my projector in my man cave, so I can play a greater role in conservation.

Everyl-Ann:
I try to use as much natural light as possible. We have many windows in our house and office so I utilize the natural light as much as possible. I recently bought a solar recharge gadget for my iPhone, so I use this to recharge whenever I can. I also keep all packing peanuts from packages I get to reuse in the business.

Danalyn:
I use all natural hair and skin products

Sheryl:
I use natural light as much as possible, unplug electronics not in use, use led and compact florescent light bulbs, recycle, reuse as much as possible, buy pantry staples in bulk to reduce packaging, and binge cook – cook in large batches and freeze to reduce gas and electricity use later.

Do you know what your skin is doing?

Food for thought: Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it. Scary, isn’t it? Read labels and know what you’re using.

Message from Noir Naturals’ owner: Changes

Hi everyone,
 
It is with deep regret to share the news on a difficult decision my wife and I had to make. Effective December 22nd we will be closing the store due to my health. We really enjoyed having the store which made it an even harder decision. We made some great connections, gained new customers and major wholesale accounts as well.
 
During my recent hospitalization over the week of Thanksgiving my pulmonologist gave me a serious warning that I needed to reduce my work schedule to focus more on my health. Having to be in the store 40+ hours of the week was not helping my recovery along, and the doctor advised that if I continue at this rate I could have a fatal end. With the store closed and a part-time flexible weekly schedule, I will be able to fully concentrate on my pulmonary rehab and get better at a faster pace. I am getting better currently, but slower than I should be.
 
The good news is that though the store is closing, Noir Naturals is not. We will open by appointment and everyone is welcomed to come by to shop like in the past, or catch a glimpse of products being made. Just like in the past you can contact us and let us know when you would like to come by and we’ll be waiting for you. Our telephone number will remain the same and we will still be at all our regular shows, and a few news ones in 2014. We are also working on our list of new products for next year, all of which you requested and we are very excited.
 
We will consider a store again in the future but right now my recovery is paramount. We wish to thank you for all of your support, concern, well wishes and prayer over the past year. God bless!
 
Charles
