Sneak Peek - June 09 Showcased Vendor! HARTNELL

Hartnell is our June 2009 Showcase Vendor. You will soon be able to see her profile on our website - http://www.cal-greenpages.com/. But, here's a sneak peek!

HARTNELL is a fine gown studio/salon in Santa Monica. Designer Hanna Hartnell launched her couture gown collection five years ago after years of experience designing for Oscar nominees and fashion connoisseurs. This outstanding designer’s uniquely beautiful Bridal creations: silk charmeuse confections that flatter the feminine form, fluttery chiffons perfect for daytime weddings, and luxuriously crafted evening gowns that add grace and originality to formal events are produced in her Santa Monica Certified Green studio. HARTNELL creates for Mothers with fresh styling and contemporary elegance, with endless color options and Hartnell’s trademark made to measure fit. Each gown from the collection is cut and sewn to order in the warm, professional environment of Hanna’s studio/salon. HARTNELL, known for designing the most daring and glamorous bridal gowns, had a design epiphany as she focused on her 2009 collection and the challenge of the three R’s –Reuse, Recycle and Reduce. The Double Dare Gown allows brides to wear their wedding gown many times beyond their wedding day. An avowed “greenie” this collection was not only recyclable, but cost effective as well.

Spring Greening Tips


Spring is here and it's time for some green cleaning! Before you go through your belongings and decide to throw away them in the garbage can, be sure to sort out the contents in your pile.

Used clothing can be donated to local charities and organizations for reuse and distribution amongst those less fortunate than we are. The same should be done with old toys and board games.

Outdated electronic equipment should also be disposed of properly. You can go to your local post office and ask for a specific envelop used to mail away your old electronics such as cell phones, ink cartridges, and music players for recycle. Companies like Sony will be conducting large scale ‘throw your old electronics' days in select locations and give away new electronic gifts in exchange as an incentive.

Be sure to also sort out paper, plastics and other materials that can be placed in the recycling bin instead of the trash can. Minimizing waste will certainly help the environment and keep landfills to a minimum. Don't forget about expired foods as well as these can be composted and used to fertilize your garden. Remember, recycle and reuse your belongings. Don't just throw them in the trash!
