Annual Company Ladies Picnic

What a blast! The ladies of From The Earth took our annual company ladies picnic to Dibeen Forest and we were all once again reminded of how beautiful Jordan really is.

On the way, we stopped to eat our breakfast in a lovely spot. It was quite the feast, but this was just the beginning.

After getting back onto the bus, we continued our journey to our final destination. We unloaded our belongings and began to play games. We had an egg relay, a water balloon toss, and a game of guess who.

The winner of each game received a snickers bar so the competition was intense. Before starting on lunch, each lady rested in anyway she chose. For some this involved resting on a mat, others chatted, and others walked around the park.

Lunch was quite the feast.

We have a company favorite...yummy!

Finally, we packed up our belongings, said goodbye to Dibeen Forest and headed back to Amman. A lovely day spent outside the city and outside of the office. This event is something that all of the employees look forward to each year.

Some maybe asking, "What were the men of From The Earth doing?" Great question. There is no physical proof of this, but they promise they were working the whole day.

Introducing Our Newest Product Partner... Green Creations!

We are so excited to introduce you to our latest Middle Eastern product partner, Green Creations. This company has been in existence since 2009 as a World Associates project.

They are doing something unheard of here in Jordan. They are taking items that are usually discarded and are transforming them into beautiful products. Green Creations is a social business merging poverty alleviation with environmental awareness.

So then, we love the ethos of their company, giving women dignity and a safe working environment (Sound familiar? That is what we at From The Earth are about as well), but we also LOVE their products. Rather than using olive wood to create products this company is using items like aluminum cans, bottle caps, plastic signs, old clothing and more to make items like necklaces, bracelets, watches, scarves, wallets, purses, bags, and other fun items.

From The Earth is the only store in Amman, Jordan where these products can be purchased. Come out to visit our showroom in Bayader and see what the women of Green Creations are doing.

The ladies of From The Earth loved the new products and were amazed that there were Jordanians doing something so creative with common items that usually get discarded.

Make Your Valentine's Day Amazing with a Little Planning

Don't you just love Valentine's Day!

Ok, stop your groaning. It can be a wonderful day, if you have planned correctly. Men, make those dinner reservations now, add a reminder to your phone to pick up some flowers, and buy your card and gifts right now by clicking this link to our store front where you can find both a card and a gift for your special someone.
You can also take comfort in knowing that the gift your buying is allowing other women to work in a clean, safe environment. Gotta love fair trade gifts right? There is just something a little more special about fair trade gifts and just to be honest it also communicates to the gift recipient that you are just a little more special than the last person they were with. It's a nice little bonus huh?
Now ladies, let's be honest, the odds that your man is reading this blog are not good, so you are going to need to send it to him. That's right, be direct and email it to him or you could be more subtle and just post it on your Facebook page or Tweet it out.

Now here is the hard truth. We don't want to tell you what to do, but if your significant other did not say that she wanted a set of olive wood salad servers from Tunisia for Valentine's Day, then we might suggest purchasing something a little different, like, the Glamour Necklace & Bracelet with Simply Gold Earrings.

We at From The Earth do hope that you have an amazing Valentine's Day and simply love every person you encounter, even if that means just giving a smile.
