May Day is a traditional Spring holiday celebrated by many cultures, but is also recognized worldwide as International Workers' Day. We love the holiday's history spanning from ancient folk celebrations to modern labor struggles. The advancement of worker's rights is deeply entwined in the history of May Day, giving us reason to celebrate the many gains and sacrifices made.

All aspects of modern labor rights in this country - from the eight hour workday, to child labor laws, to the two-day weekend - have been won through a long and often bloody struggle by the labor movement. To this day, workers are engaged in battles to obtain rights - like Familias Unidas por la Justicia currently fighting for basic labor rights from Sakuma Berries and Driscoll's.

May Day is traditionally celebrated as a day off from all things - work, school and even shopping. We understand the inherent hypocrisy in having a sale for May Day and, for this reason, we are donating half of our sales on May 1st to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The ACLU uses litigation, lobbying, and community empowerment to defend and preserve individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the constitution. We're excited to support this vital work!

We hope you all enjoy a restful weekend and a fun-filled May Day! Here's to remembering the sacrifices of the past so that we can value the present and protect the future!

Massage sparingly into clean, dry hands to soothe and hydrate hard-working skin. Perfect for those who work with their hands, or anyone looking for a luxurious, earthy hand cream. Use this "dry" salve sparingly and it will leave skin feeling soft without excess oil. An ideal all natural lotion alternative, keep a jar near the sink to hydrate and soften hands after washing.
You don't have to sacrifice soft hands for productivity. With a little care, you can make it through the garden season with healthy, happy skin!
