Tiffany Norton's Profile

About

JuniperseedMercantile is undergoing a few changes after the passing of my mother, best friend and business partner. Please be patient with me as it is now just me. Expect approximately a week lead time on all orders.

About me (Tiffany): I am the proud mother of two beautiful little boys. I have a B.A. from the University of Colorado in Environmental, Populational and Organismic Biology, with a minor in Biochemistry, and 18 years of experience as a biology, physical science, and chemistry teacher, and now a math teacher as well. I moonlight as an inventor and crafter of useful, beautiful, and yummy items that help minimize our impact on this wonderful world, while being gentler on our own bodies as well.

I am also a proud member of TeamEcoEtsy. I am passionate about using earth-friendly ingredients, recyclable or reusable packaging, and ship all of my orders using reclaimed materials, and paper tape. Many of my ingredients are organic, and I source my palm oil from Brazil, to do my part to protect the Orangutan habitat in Indonesia. All of my ingredients are fully disclosed because I believe consumers have a right to know what they are putting in and on their bodies. If you have any questions, please just ask!

About Joan: My best friend, mentor, mother and partner... She has been an inspiration and copilot my entire life! She left a high-speed corporate life to run a mostly-volunteer hospice in rural Grand County, Colorado. A successful independent business owner in her own right, she built an incredible reputation for herself as Juniperseed Books, an online used book store.

Together, we merged our passion for the environment and responsible living by creating Juniperseed Mercantile. If you would like to keep tabs on the shop as I embark upon this new journey, please join me on facebook at facebook/JuniperseedMercantile.com
