-- Feature: "Conscious Chic w/ Laura Dichtl"--
The EPA has given some really illuminating news to the public, that is sure to leave us all feeling "warm and fuzzy" on the inside. It appears that "Indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air, and is considered to be one of the top 5 hazards to human health. Paint and finishes are among the leading causes." Add to that list toxic fabrics, toxic home carpeting, toxic textiles, and of course the big culprit - toxic paint, and somehow the term "home sweet home" seems, well...outright misleading. Thankfully one company is part of the solution, and does it in style. Welcome to the world of Anna Sova.
The company is based out of Dallas Texas and sells luxurious bedding, bath/ body products, organic home gifts and paint finishes that are radically different because of their uncompromising earth and body friendly approach. The utterly beautiful selection of products are all note-worthy, but the non-toxic paint products totally wow us, with their food grade ingredients.
The full selection of 500 paints can be mixed with any of the 4 aromatherapy oils that they offer for added fragrance that last up to a year. The colors are warm and rich even in the lightest of tones. If the colors seem familiar to you that might be because some of them were actually created from actual fruits, vegetables, exotic spices and chocolates as well as many others. They range from the softest whites to the warmest of browns and everything in between.
The rest of the product line is divine as well, with sensuous silk bedding and draperies, hand finished bamboo hardware, vibrant hand printed cottons, Italian jacquard sheets, aromatic and pure soy based candles and the most luxurious Turkish cotton towels you will find anywhere. It’s hard not to snap up items from every category.
Anna Sova also represents some pretty upstanding ethical standard. The company not only commits itself to having the purest most luxurious home products available but are also committed to alternative labor sources and good working conditions of all the countries helping to make their products. Add to that their strict standards in packaging guidelines and the use of only recycled materials, and you have a company that gets it right from every angle.
The Anna Sova site is also a treat. Not only featuring beautiful images of their products but also a wealth of information for the conscious consumer. From information on potential dangers of toxins to links to agencies protecting the environment. Anna Sova is not only trying to make our world more beautiful and luxurious, but safer and more aware.
Remember, your home is indeed an extension of you. …make it a healthier and more conscious one inside and out.
