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.
