A woman-owned business founded in 2009 based just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Green Ostrich™ started with the following observation: the energy-intensive retail stores that we frequent do not offer many Earth-friendly, green products. That, and we were spending a lot of time and energy driving in our car to and from these stores.
So, we decided to create an online store dedicated to Earth-friendly, green gifts and green toys to spark a consumer movement that requires environmentally-sound solutions for our lives. We help people make changes, not sacrifices. We help them live well and refresh the Earth.
The power to make change rests with the individual consumer. They have to lead the way; they always do. When consumers decide to make the Earth a priority, the priorities of businesses and governments will shift.
To save the Earth, we have to refresh the resources we borrow. Using Earth-friendly products in our daily lives helps. Learn to recognize them. Demand them. Buy them . . . if not from us, from someone else. Doing that consistently will move markets and governments, and the Earth will rebound from its concerning negative trends.
In my house, it is always a good idea to have a few flashlights hanging around just in case of a power outage. When my husband and I first got married, I never thought about having a flashlight around and one morning I woke up to the whole street being dark. Ever since then, I knew a flashlight was a great thing to always have just in case. So I bought a bunch of flashlights and kept them around the house. But I didn't have to use them for so long that the batteries were dead by the time I needed to. How can you find new batteries in a pitch dark house? Well that's where the Wind and Go Flashlight has my undying love forever!
