Maddieloos' Shop Announcement

YA! ITS SPRING! HERE'S A COUPON CODE = "THINKGREEN" thanks to the best customers on etsy!! BIG NEWS!! WE NOW HAVE CALCULATED SHIPPING! & you can choose your own shipping preference! Just plug in your zipcode & it will automatically figure your exact shipping for the shipping preference you chose! saving you $$$

...We believe in practicing what we preach... So...We are going "MORE GREEN” ... we decided to start with our basics ...labels. We have switched our white labels to recycled Kraft labels with black ink only. Using only black ink, means less ink and that means less ink cartridges, and the new kraft labels are made from 100% post consumer waste.
We also made the big “banner-design-switch”.(the banner is on the front page of the shop with our shop name, above our announcements) Don’t Worry, We are Keeping Our natural Vegan Products! In fact we are starting to use more organic ingredients, keep watch for all the exciting new changes!
With our new “MORE GREEN” change over, we want to be even more environmentally responsible with our shop. We realized we have never announced what type of containers we use. We have always used PET or HDPE bottles and jars.
We thought... “hey we can do better”...so we are switching most of our jars to tin containers. Through our “transition-time” we are giving you a choice between plastic OR tin, we hope this will help to make the switch-over go more smoothly.

TINS- Decorative tins made from tin-plated steel are infinitely recyclable. Recycling a tin package uses fewer resources and energy than for other materials. Each tin contains between 25%-60% recycled steel. Steel packaging is the best choice you can make for sustainability. http://www.independentcan.com/sustainability/

PET PLASTIC- (also known as PETE and designated by a recyclable “1”) does NOT contain BPA. PET is globally recognized as a safe, recyclable packaging material. Numerous tests have created a broad scientific consensus that PET is NON-TOXIC and is a safe material for the storage of food and beverages.

HDPE PLASTIC- High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is one of the most commonly used plastics in the United States, labeled as #2 plastic. It resists insects, rot and other chemicals. HDPE creates no harmful emissions during its production or during its use by the consumer. Also, HDPE leaks no toxic chemicals into the soil or water.
We hope you will be pleased with our new changes and maybe you too will want to make a “green-change”, starting with your basics.
Thank you! Marsallai & family- Maddieloos.etsy.com

I FOUND THIS CHART BELOW AND THOUGHT IT WAS A EASY WAY TO CHECK THE CONTAINERS WE ALL USE EVERYDAY.
The news about plastics has been pretty alarming lately,If you've been concerned, here is a handy chart that identifies the good, bad, and OK plastics and where they are found. Find out here:
1. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE)
Used to make soft drink, water, sports drink, ketchup, and salad dressing bottles, and peanut butter, pickle, jelly and jam jars.
GOOD: Not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones.
2. High density polyethylene (HDPE)
Milk, water, and juice bottles, yogurt and margarine tubs, cereal box liners, and grocery, trash, and retail bags.
GOOD: Not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones.
3. Polyvinyl chloride (V or PVC)
Most cling-wrapped meats, cheeses, and other foods sold in delicatessens and groceries are wrapped in PVC.
BAD: To soften into its flexible form, manufacturers add “plasticizers” during production. Traces of these chemicals can leach out of PVC when in contact with foods. According to the National Institutes of Health, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), commonly found in PVC, is a suspected human carcinogen.
4. Low-density polyethylene (LDPE)
Some bread and frozen food bags and squeezable bottles.
OK: Not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones, but not as widely recycled as #1 or #2.
5. Polypropylene (PP)
Some ketchup bottles and yogurt and margarine tubs.
OK: Hazardous during production, but not known to leach any chemicals that are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones. Not as widely recycled as #1 and #2.
6. Polystyrene (PS)
Foam insulation and also for hard applications (e.g. cups, some toys)
BAD: Benzene (material used in production) is a known human carcinogen. Butadiene and styrene (the basic building block of the plastic) are suspected carcinogens. Energy intensive and poor recycling.
7. Other (usually poly-carbonate)
Baby bottles, microwave ovenware, eating utensils, plastic coating for metal cans
BAD: Made with biphenyl-A, a chemical invented in the 1930s in search for synthetic estrogen's. A hormone disrupt-or. Simulates the action of estrogen when tested in human breast cancer studies. Can leach into food as product ages.

LINATURAL
Based on naturally derived science, this preservative is highly effective without compromising health issues. Its a paraben free preservative which means it won't release formaldehyde, like paraben based preservatives do.
It is considered a broad spectrum preservative meaning its effective against gram negative pathogens, bacteria, yeast, and fungi.
This preservative is approved for being "naturally derived".

The components that make up this preservative are as follows:
INCI: caprylic acid (and) propanediol (and) lauric acid

Caprylic Acid: This component holds a "0" on the toxicity scale on the Skin Deep Cosmetic Data Base website. Caprylic acid is an eight-carbon fatty acid that is found naturally in palm and coconut oil.

Propanediol: Is the 2nd component within this preservative system. This ingredient can be either synthetically produced or naturally made ... THIS IS THE NATURALLY DERIVED VERSION. It comes from non-GMO corn, it is approved by Eco-Cert, NPA, Health Canada and USDA as a bio-based - all natural derived preservative which is also Kosher certified.

Lauric Acid: The last component inside Linatural also has a "0" toxicity rating on the Skin Deep website. Lauric acid is a saturated fat, found in many vegetables that are considered "fatty" by nature -- generally coconut or palm oils. Lauric acid is a non-toxic ingredient for skin care applications.
