Love's Given (M)

Help Spread This Truth


Love’s not something you Want, Love’s something that’s Given. (M)reminds us that the outpouring of a love free from self cherishing is never dependent on whether or not love is being reciprocated. In fact, in true love there is no concern for oneself; loves only concern is for the welfare and happiness of others. In the giving of selfless love to others, attachment, craving and the like are naturally refined away. Loving in this manner may seem a little counterintuitive; it may seem we will leave ourselves vulnerable to be taken advantage of by others. But, the truth is, when we possess and give this kind of love to others, our own well being and happiness is insured. In not contriving our relationships, someone who will love us is found as a matter of course.

Why Bamboo?:

Organic bamboo is not only super comfortable, but it is highly absorbent, fast drying, long lasting, machine washable, antimicrobial, soft, and naturally sustainable…

Organic bamboo feels like a marriage between silk and cashmere. Organic bamboo is soft, breathable, naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal. These qualities are not lost during processing or repeated washings.

Because bamboo grows so quickly, it is a resource that is not only sustainable, but also gives back to the environment, it only needs to be planted once and then harvested on a periodic rotation.

Bamboo grows at an incredibly rapid pace. Growing 1 to 3 feet every 24 hours organic bamboo is one of the most renewable resources on the planet. It’s no wonder why organic bamboo is becoming a very popular choice with in the green community. On the same 1 acre of land bamboo produces 30% more oxygen than a hardwood forest, and on that very same acre a bamboo forest removes 25 tons of carbon dioxide per year, 6 tons more than a young forest.

Used in everything from food, flooring and construction to bed sheets and underwear, bamboo is quickly becoming a popular choice for environmentally conscious people around the globe. Because organic Bamboo is cruelty free and nurturing to the environment, it always gives back making it perfect choice for conscientious people striving to do as little harm as possible.

Bamboo fabric is made from the fibers of bamboo grass, and is softer and more sustainable than cotton, but perfect to blend with organic cotton.

Bamboo’s natural fiber properties make it non-irritating and a very pleasant alternative if you have sensitive skin. It also has a natural protection against UV rays. Organic Bamboo is comfortable, absorbent and quick drying making it an excellent choice for casual wear, yoga attire, sports, or work.

Why Organic Cotton?:

Because of its purity, organic cotton is naturally softer, hypoallergenic, more comfortable, breathable, warming or cooling to the body, and perspiration-resistant.

Organic cotton uses pesticide free seeds and never uses GMO seeds. Like bamboo, organic cotton builds strong soil through crop rotation and retains more water efficiently thanks to increased organic matter in the soil.

Organic farming nourishes and maintains the soil. This health is maintained thru cultivation rather than the use of harmful chemicals. Organic cotton is hand picked rather than harvested without the use of machines. Controlling weed growth thru cultivation rather than using harmful poisons, maintains the delicate balance between pests and their natural predators.

Organic cotton production uses the beneficial insect biological and cultural practices to control pests by using a trap crop, planted to lure insects away from cotton.

Why Hemp?:

Hemp has a linen-like feel to it. Organic hemp is four times stronger than organic cotton, making it tough and long lasting. When blended with cotton, it insures durability and comfort. Organic hemp has been used over the centuries to make rope, clothing, paper and other necessary products. As most of us know the Declaration of Independence was written on hemp. Hemp filters UV light, resists bacteria growth and keeps your body dry. It retains dye better than any other fabric so colors won’t fade.

Hemp uses less water, resists insects and crowds out other weeds, making pesticides and fertilizers unnecessary.
