Last Sunday we were all excited to hear we would see snow. In Portland we maybe get a day or two of snow a year and it usually all gets rained away within 24hrs. Well we are now on are 8th day of snow and about 13 inches on the ground in the metro area. While that would be nothing to a lot of people it grinds our city to a halt. I don’t think we have all ever wished for rain like we are now.
Even some of the stores are closed don’t they know all of us procrastinators still have Christmas shopping to do? So I am getting to the point of turning our tennis rackets into snow shoes or hand making gifts. For the sake of my loved ones I think I will go with the tennis racket snow shoe idea. I still have two more stockings to buy and I was excited to see all the great gift packs Burt’s Bees is offering this year, here are a few worth a walk on tennis rackets!
For my hard to shop for oldest brother who is very into earth friendly products, this is the perfect stocking stuffer!

Julianne Moore recently opened up to Ben Lyons with E! about what drove her to natural skincare products and partnering with Burt’s Bees, working on the feature film “Blindness” and her new children’s book.
When asked about the confusion that can arise when shopping for natural skincare products, Moore talks about how Burt’s Bees and the Natural Products Association worked together to develop “The Natural Seal:” “Burt’s Bees has worked with this group — it certifies that products are 95% natural, and they won’t cause any harm to your person. I think because the kind of toxins that we have to live with on a day to day basis, there’s no reason you need to get them in lotion.”
Moore’s children drove her to become passionate about natural products: “I have kids who have eczema for example, so I can’t put anything on them or they’ll have a reaction to it.”
When Lyons asks what it was like to work with director Fernando Meirelles on the feature film “Blindness,” Moore says: I always say that great directors have a lot, they always have a very distinct vision. So that’s what he did. He was very, very sure about what he wanted.“
In addition to acting and spreading the word about Burt’s Bees, Moore is also a children’s book author: “Yes, I have another book coming out next spring, it’s called “Freckleface and the Dodgeball Bully.” It’s about her going to school and dealing with somebody who is a bully.”
JULIANNE MOORE CASTS HER VOTE FOR NATURAL
WHO: Julianne Moore and Burt’s Bees
WHAT: Given the choice between natural and synthetic, what’s your vote? Burt’s Bees thinks the choice should be clear in personal care. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it looks, many personal care products on the market positioning products as ‘natural’ may contain potentially harmful ingredients. That’s why Burt’s Bees and Julianne Moore are giving consumers the opportunity to cast their votes for truly natural personal care at Burt’s Bees’ Election Day in New York City.
Like many consumers, Burt’s Bees has always believed that natural ingredients are safer and more beneficial. The trouble is, it can take a lot of reading between the lines of labels to figure out what’s natural vs. synthetic. To help consumers find what they’re really looking for in a natural product, Burt’s Bees has worked closely with the Natural Products Association and other like minded brands to develop a Natural Seal—a symbol that lets consumers know when products contain at least 95% natural ingredients. On Burt’s Bees’ Voting Day, a vote for natural is also a vote for the Natural Seal, helping make natural a clear choice after all.
To ensure that the best candidate comes out on top, “green” actress Julianne Moore will be on hand to cast the first vote for natural at the Burt’s Bees Voting Booth at Merchants’ Gate at Columbus Circle in NYC. Other NYC voters can learn more about ‘natural’, cast their vote and receive samples of Burt’s Bees products.
Most importantly, consumers across the America are invited to join Julianne and this movement, casting their votes for the natural at www.votefornatural.com, where they can also learn more about the movement as well as win prizes, including a limited-edition C&C California for Burt’s Bees T-Shirt. Each vote represents a conscious choice to use natural products over the potentially harmful synthetic alternatives as well as support for the new Natural Seal. A ‘vote’ for Natural lets the competition know that the public wants transparency in natural personal care.
