Another week has flown by at eco-kids. A week filled with orders, product development and marketing. It is amazing to think how far we have come in 5 long, short years. We have gone from stove top to counter top in stores around the country and over seas. From negotiating our spot at the Hollywood Farmers Market to negotiating our deal with Taka our Japanese distributor. An exciting journey continues as eco-kids grows.
We recently attended a boot camp at The Stonyfield Farm Entrepreneurship Institute in Concord, New Hampshire. We enjoyed talking and meeting like minded people that were on many levels and stages of business. Everyone from someone with a start up idea to companies grossing millions of dollars. Cammie and I left so inspired to be better business people and to make sure we don't lose our roots while we grow. Also, to always remember what kind of impact our company has on a local and global scale. We will continue to be an eco-responsible company. As simple as this sounds it is overlooked more than less. It is nice to feel like there is change in the air, and the big business practices of the past can and will change, and we feel privileged to be a part of that.
We would like to thank...
