It’s that time of the year again where we all come together to make impact within that 1 hour. A lot of you may have heard about Earth Hour and even participated. For those of you that do not know what is Earth Hour, we will fill you in a few details. Earth Hour is organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) across the globe and is held on the last Saturday of March annually. This year, it happens to be on March 31st and will take place from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. During this hour, it is encourages that every households and business turn off their lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action and do your part on climate change and energy preservation. Last year records indicate that 5,251 cities and towns in 135 countries and territories in all seven continents responded to Earth Hour, and saved considerable electricity power across the globe.

The 2012 campaign theme of Earth Hour is “I Will If You Will”. I love this theme as it is encouraging and connecting people to do their part together as a team across the globe with one goal in mind. Great accomplishments usually come from great visions. Earth Hour is more than switching off lights for one hour once a year. It’s all about giving people a voice and working together to create a better future for our planet.

Likewise, ourselves at Colourful Grass we are dedicated to creating a more sustainable future for our next generations and see the planet as a whole. We combine our passion on fashion and environmental and humanitarian awareness together to design stylish, trendy, eco- and animal friendly footwear. Colourful Grass has a strong commitment to the environment and animal life.

We are going to be hosting a Veggie BBQ on Earth Day to raise awareness on sustainability. All proceeds from the food and 10% of our shoe sales will go to charitable organizations.

We have a strong passion and wonderful ideas on sustainable fashion, and we can do more with your support. Our Indiegogo campaign page at the link below and watch the video to see what the Colourful Grass family has to say: http://www.indiegogo.com/colourfulgrassfootwear?a=413479

We go shopping in malls and plazas every month with family, friends or boyfriends/girlfriends, do you start to notice eco-friendly apparel in their shopping bags?  If you noticed, don’t be surprised as a lot of other people did as well.  According to the latest survey from the 2012 Ryan Partnership Chicago/Mambo Sprouts Marketing Styling Sustainability, consumers would tend to double their eco-friendly apparel purchases in 2012.  Among the eco-apparel gateway categories footwear purchases will be remarkably reaching 48 percent.  Increasing eco-awareness encourage consumers to choose eco-friendly apparel (want to know about why eco-friendly or animal-friendly?  Please see our blog or watch Colourful Grass mission video).

Surprisingly quite a few people don’t even know where to buy eco clothing.  Eco apparel is usually expensive and has fewer styles as the non-eco apparel, and that’s why not so many stores sell eco apparel or put only a small portion in the showcases.

Colourful Grass has been dedicating to creating affordable stylish eco- and vegan footwear for both men and women.  Now we have selling points across Canada and the US, and online shoppers can easily find us on the famous ethical sites, such as PETA, Ethical Community and Green People, etc.  People love Colourful Grass shoes because we share the same value with consumers and the natural hemp canvas and coconut shell accessories that we use fully represent your eco-friendly style.    As spring has arrived and summer is coming, Colourful Grass is excited to launch 2012 Spring/Summer new styles sandals.  Come in the ethical fashion trend and refresh your styles with Colourful Grass shoes.  Take a visit to our Indiegogo campaign for more information.

Want some snacks while watching TV or for the party?  We are pleased to tell you of this super yummy & easy to make vegetarian food – Kale Chips.  It tastes like nacho cheese but better and is very popular among my vegetarian friends and meat-eaters alike. Although it takes 12 hours to dehydrate, the process is very easy, and you can find the tools in your kitchen or the supermarket anywhere. It is probably by far the best Kale chips I have ever eaten!!! So yummy. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do~

What you need: 1 large bunch of curly, green kale, washed, large stems removed, torn into bite size pieces COATING: 1 cup cashews (soaked 2 hours) 1 red bell pepper, seeded chopped Juice of 1 lemon 2 t. agave (optional-I don’t add, I like the more salty + savory) 1 T. nutritional yeast ½ t. Himalayan pink crystal salt (use more or less to taste)

Make it: Put coating ingredients in Vitamix. Blend until smooth.  Using your hands, massage coating onto kale pieces getting it inside of curls.  Put on teflex sheets (don’t worry about flattening them, they are better bunched up) and dehydrate at 105 overnight or until coating is dry.  Slide onto mesh screen and dehydrate for 12 hours, or until very crispy.

**note: mine just took about another 4 hours after overnight and flipping. YUM!
