The Orange Owl is based in the beautiful state of Vermont. The core mission of the company is to provide simple and environmentally friendly alternatives to essential products used regularly in our lives. “Going Green” is not just a buzzword or about being fashionable to us. Instead, it is one of the vital components that goes into designing all our merchandise. We find the inspiration for our products in a myriad of places. From the smell of early morning coffee with a hint of cinnamon, hikes along some of the most beautiful trails in New England, to a plethora of experiences in India, we have epiphanies all the time. This can result in some of the most random note taking known to man. However, it also results in the colors, scents and textures we offer on this website.
We have also not forgotten that as you move ahead in life, it is important to give back to society. To this end, we are involved with The Schooling Project, an organization in India that works towards financing the education of underprivileged children.
We believe that establishing a relationship with you is just as important as having you enjoy our products. After all, knowing the people behind the items you use regularly makes the purchase more personal. So, indulge and treat yourself. Leave your problems behind. Experience our products!
The Orange Owl and The Schooling Project
A strong base in education early on provides one with better opportunities throughout life. However, not all children have the access or the financial support to experience this difference. And in most countries with big social divides, kids who are not in school end up on the streets to support themselves and their families. This is where The Schooling Project comes into the picture.
Organized and run by a team of highly motivated individuals in India, The Schooling Project provides avenues for children to gain the financial means necessary to stay in school. In addition to basic education, the team does a fantastic job of workshops with the children to build their confidence and helps them explore various technical fields including photography, film design and green design to name just a few.
Based on the current exchange rate, it costs only $75.00 to educate a child for one full year. Think about how easily we spend this amount in our lives on the would-be-nice-to-haves. Now, imagine what a difference this amount can make to that one child.
All donations sent to The Schooling Project are funneled into paying the respective schools directly for the tuition and books required, cutting out any middle men and commissions. Having worked with The Schooling Project previously, and knowing the team personally, The Orange Owl is proud to be associated with them.
For every purchase made, The Orange Owl will donate 5% of the total sale to The Schooling Project. We believe that this, in addition to all the other small details we pay attention to, will help make this purchase more meaningful for you. Join us in this endeavor and help make that difference!
Akshata Nayak was born and raised in the city of Bangalore in southern India. She moved to America for her graduate studies in late 2003, earning a Masters in Biochemistry and, a few years later, a Masters in Applied Clinical Nutrition (apparently one was just not enough). After working in basic research in the fields of Immunology and Emergency Medicine for six years, she decided to shift her focus. The Masters in Applied Clinical Nutrition was a step in that direction. It helped emphasize some basic policies of trying to establish a balance in people’s lives when it came to overall health.
Presently, she divides her time up as a nutritionist at Alternative Roots Wellness Center, a holistic health center started with her husband, and a handmade crafts business owner. She lives in Vermont, and loves to cook, read and repeatedly change the cushion covers in her living room. Her mother wishes she would clean the house more often, her father wishes she would finally learn to budget sensibly, and her husband wishes she would leave the cushions alone. She is, however, having the proverbial blast.
Want to be able to pronounce all the ingredients on a label for once? You have come to the right place!
The Orange Owl has opened with a line of luxurious soaps, luscious lip balms, soothing bath soaks and decadent body butters. Each item is handmade in small batches and individually packaged to maintain its integrity.
To minimize our carbon footprint, our products are packaged using either 100% recycled post-consumer waste material or reusable and recyclable containers. All products are labeled according to FDA guidelines to ensure that customers have complete information about their purchases.
Keeping in tune with our green design, we work with vendors who practice safe and sustainable methods to provide us with the finest quality starting materials. Care is taken to use only essential oils, spices and herbs to scent and color the merchandise – no synthetic fragrance oils, scent blends, phthalates, sulfates, parabens, dyes, petroleum products or silicones here.
Some of our ingredients are not certified organic, but that is only because we prefer to purchase from trusted vendors rather than go with any marketing gimmicks. We are diligently researching more eco-friendly options to ensure that we create a product that loves nature just as much as you!
In addition, none of our products are tested on any sweet and cuddly (or for that matter, non-sweet and non-cuddly) animals. Just on unsuspecting friends and relatives who were at the wrong place at the wrong time. You would think they would learn after the first experience!
Also, remember, for every purchase you make, 5% of the total sale goes towards supporting the education of underprivileged children. To know more, read about our association with The Schooling Project.
We are confident in our products, but are also open to improvements. If you have any suggestions, please don’t forget to contact us. If, like us, you fall in love with our products, please, don’t hesitate to let us know about that either!
