Inspirational Vibes – deLIFEful Foods!

For my 4th episode of Inspirational Vibes, I am so happy to have had the opportunity to interview and spend some time with Tirrell Barronette who is the brainchild behind the up and coming raw organic juice company – deLIFEful Foods.

I met Tirrell at the Open House of the Brooklyn Chapter of the Holistic Mom’s Network that I co-lead with another Mummy in Williamsburg Brooklyn. We were looking for sponsors for the event, and with the help of my friends at Gourmet Guild, (where monthly meetings are held and who also stock deLifeFul), the connection was made. Tirrell was so excited to get the juices into us local Mummies hands that he actually showed up to Gourmet Guild a day early. And, I love that story. Tirrell has one of the those welcoming happy smiley personalities that it is impossible not to love, and deLIFEful Foods is a perfect reflection of that.

Inspirational Vibes – Build It Green NYC

 

It’s been awhile since I have written an “Inspirational Vibes” piece, so last week I headed over to the nearby industrial area of Gowanus Brooklyn to have a chat with “Jack” Jaclyn Jablkowski who is the Communications Manager at the nonprofit Build It Green! NYC.

I was inspired to visit Jack after reading that last year alone they successfully diverted 1,200 tons of re-useable building materials from landfills in the immediate New York area – pretty impressive – which is up 400 tons from the year before, with projections that that amount will continue to grow each year! Build It Green! NYC also donated 57 tons of lumber to school and community gardens in New York City providing enough material to build 1,200 new raised garden beds making my current city greener, cleaner and prettier. If that isn’t an inspirational vibe I do not know what is.

She explained that those 3 boys were her sons, and for the past year her sons had been sharing a single pair of shoes. Her oldest son had been walking to school, coming home, giving his shoes to his brother, and he had to wait until Thursday to go to school again. Now all of her sons could go to school every day and they got to walk there together. Blake Mycoskie

Inspirational Vibes – Little Duck Organics

Inspiration – A divine influence directly and immediately exerted upon the mind or soul.

Today, I had a chat with Zak Normandin who is the brainchild CEO, of one of my favorite under-4-foot snack companies, Little Duck Organics. Zak is a Daddy of 3 who in the year 2010 started making healthy fruit snacks in his basement, driven by the fact that he could not find anything that he felt was suitable to feed his children (I know that feeling).
