The Soap Kitchen & Patagonia Clothing Spread Clean Holiday Cheer

Eco-friendly shoppers in Old Pasadena, CA save some green for the holidays.

[ClickPress, Thu Dec 07 2006] It’s that time of year when shoppers are in a frantic frenzy looking for that perfect gift for each person on his or her Christmas list. Many Southern California residents have a few people on their list that may prompt them to think of saving some green, not only in their pocketbooks, but also nature’s green. As consumer trends rise toward buying products that are healthy, natural and compassionate to the environment, some retailers are making it simple to shop for eco-friendly gifts for the holidays.

The Soap Kitchen and Patagonia Clothing in Old Pasadena, CA have joined together to help shoppers gain a healthier perspective for this holiday’s gift giving season. In an effort to promote an eco-friendly stress-free shopping experience, they will be hosting a special event on Monday, Dec. 11th from 6-8pm, offering expert advice from personal shoppers, complimentary refreshments and activities for the kids, free gift bags, free shipping, free gift wrapping, and parking validation.

The Soap kitchen is dedicated to preserving the earth, the animals, and the environment by offering products that are all natural and free of artificial colors, fragrances or preservatives commonly found in commercial soaps. “Not only are our products eco-friendly, but they are better for your body,” proudly boasts storeowner Dali Yu. It’s no wonder that this retailer found a compassionate friend and neighbor, Patagonia, whose commitment to product quality and environmental activism is highly acclaimed among the eco-friendly community and consumers alike. They offer a wide range of men’s, women’s and kid’s eco-friendly clothing and gear for those living a healthy, active, and green lifestyle. Patagonia states, “Patagonia shines light on sustainable gift-giving and hopes this special event will help to educate consumers on the importance of making environmental choices.”

We all know that we can’t stop global warming or save our nature’s resources in a day, but according to Dali Yu of The Soap Kitchen, “We can begin by cleansing the world naturally, one handmade bar at a time.”
