Alima Hugs Some Trees

Posted on August 26, 2009 by kate | 0 Comments

Alima believes in “leaving a light footprint” in all of our actions both in business and in our personal lives. We recycle. We use pure and natural ingredients in our products and eco-friendly packing materials. We limit our carbon emissions to reduce our impact on global warming. And we are aware that more can always be done.

Perhaps this is why we like Feng Shui, which cultivates the flow of harmonious energy through use of solar light, running water, free air ventilation, growing plants, and the presence of animals. “Feng Shui” literally means: “wind water.” Beauty originates in nature and all attempts to enhance beauty stem back to nature.

Continuing this thought of “treading gently” and leaving a “light footprint,” we decided to compile a list of friendly tips and reminders for green living. There are literally hundreds of ways to say: “thank you.” Here, then, are 5 of them.

1.     Recycle: it sounds simple and, increasingly, it is. It is also a powerful green solution of critical importance to the environment. Did you know that Americans discard approximately 30 million trees each year in the form of used newsprint, alone?

2.     Unplug electrical devices, turn down the furnace, and turn off lights. Energy efficiency saves money and dramatically reduces carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

3.     Minimize water usage by placing “low flow” water saving devices over faucets and in showers. The world’s supply of fresh water is becoming a sacred resource; scientists estimate that water could be a scarce global commodity by 2050. “Low flow” devices help preserve water while further reducing carbon emissions.

4.     Support local farms. Purchase locally produced food to limit use of fossil fuel (needed to transport food long distances), reduce fuel costs, and support community farmers.

5.     Reduce greenhouse emissions by carpooling, bicycling, walking, and buying fuel-efficient, “green” vehicles, such as the Toyota Prius and Ford Hybrid, or investing in the new breed of electric vehicles such as GM’s Volt. Set a goal of reducing the number of miles driven each year by 30%.  When it's time to trade up, get a car with 10mpg better fuel efficiency or more.

Valentine Special

Posted on February 05, 2009 by kate | 1 Comment

Alima Pure Valentine Send a Friend a Free Alima Valentine!

Looking to pass a little love along to your best friend, sister or co-worker this Valentine’s Day?  We have the perfect plan and we’re tickled pink – send a collection of special Alima Pure samples to a friend (for free)! For the next week when you place your order, just leave a note in the comments box with your friend's name and address. We'll send her three free samples of Alima colors chosen just for the occasion, along with a gorgeous card wishing her a Happy Valentine's Day. If you like, let us know whether she'd prefer our light collection, or deep collection (both are quite wearable, so you can't go wrong).

In addition, with your order of $25 or more (before shipping and after discounts), we're offering a free mini (eyeshadow sized) 'Sweetheart'  limited edition blush - a  soft medium pink with a hint of shimmer. We'll include it automatically when we pack your box, so don’t worry when it doesn’t show up on your order form.

Offers end at midnight PST, on February 12th, while supplies last.

Happy Valentine's Day from Alima Pure!
