Have you ever tasted Japanese Mochi? You should.

Japan is a beautiful, magical place. Their sense of aesthetics runs through everything from clothing to architecture to packaging and food. I remember stopping into a small shop to grab a cheese sandwich and receiving something that looked like an art piece - two perfect triangles with the crust removed. Even the bag the sandwich was placed in was beautiful, sealed with a gold medallion. I never got used to everything as art, but I liked it. Food as an art form is celebrated in the Japanese semi-sweet, chewy rice treats called mochi. Once you try it, you'll want more.

A West Elm Mystery

A friend of mine sent me this photo. It's a picture of a women with the following, "Chris Silverston founded Cape Town artist' collective Potter's Workshop in 1991. Trained through apprenticeship, new artists slowly acquire the skills to create the bead-like, textured ceramic patterns the studio is known for."

All Organic milk is the same, right?

Posted August 1, 2012

If a product like milk is labeled organic does it matter where it came from? A small family farm from your state or a giant factory farm? Does it matter how the cows are treated? The employees? For many PosiPair members and the public, the answer is an emphatic "Yes!"

Featured Certification

The presence of what appears to be a recycling symbol does not necessarily mean that the product or material will be accepted locally. Producers are increasingly manufacturing their goods for a European or worldwide market and are obliged to include a variety of potentially misleading symbols. Consumers should also be aware that some symbols are not for their benefit, but for the waste handling and disposal industry. The internationally-recognized recycling symbol is the 3 chasing arrows icon, the Mobius Loop. Each arrow represents an aspect of a successful recycling program: collection, remanufacturing/reprocessing into a new product, and finally purchase by the consumer. The symbol is only supposed to be used on goods that are 'recyclable' or include 'recycled content', but it has no precise meaning. This symbol may be found on a broad range of products made of a variety of materials.
