Cara’s Garden

Cara’s Garden

Offering workshops in botanical painting and food photography, as well as an online store of hand-carved wooden spoons, food photographs, and greeting cards of Cara’s botanical paintings.

About Cara Cummings: I grew up in the mountains of Santa Barbara, California, in a community of inspired people who often came together to cook, eat, and make art. After completing a degree in biology—which is also where my passion for botanical painting came from—I ran a website design business, raised two daughters, and completed a Master’s degree in environmental science and policy at Columbia University in 2010.

In 2012 I arrived in Illinois and I immersed myself in the local food scene, volunteering at Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery in Champaign, frequenting the Urbana Farmers’ Market, joining the Slow Food Champaign-Urbana board, becoming an owner of the Common Ground Food Co-op, and am now the executive director at The Land Connection.

My free time is spent in my garden in Champaign, Illinois where the lawn continues to get smaller and the vegetable growing space gets bigger with my dog Francis, my urban chickens, a sweet woodshop and painting studio, and my partner (who puts up with my never- ending stream of new ideas and projects), John.

Repreve

Repreve

Repreve is a recycled fiber that contains recycled materials—including used plastic bottles.

But not all recycled fibers are created equal. There are other recycled fibers out there, but there’s only one Repreve.

It took years to develop the process that makes Repreve a leading recycled yarn. We tightly manage every step, and pass strict annual recycled certifications by outside third parties. With our strict quality standards, Repreve recycled fibers are “first quality,” so they look good and feel soft and comfortable when made into fabrics. That’s why, when you see products made with Repreve, it’s important to remember: It’s what’s in it that matters.

Repreve conserves resources because it offsets the need to use newly refined crude oil. Oil refining is a complex industrial process that turns crude oil into a multitude of petroleum-based products. Some of these products are then made into ingredients that go into synthetic fibers. Compared to making virgin synthetic fibers, Repreve uses less energy and water, and produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

Repreve is made by a US-based company, Unifi, Inc., a global
leader in innovative textile solutions. Our commitment to sustainable manufacturing goes beyond making Repreve.

LunchSkins

LunchSkins

Every day, more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into American landfills. We knew that many families were looking for easy, convenient ways to be green and avoid this kind of waste. So we put our passion and energy together and 3greenmoms and LunchSkins was born. Our mission: To design a colorful, fresh alternative to the plastic baggie.

Our bags are made from a very high-quality European fabric that is certified as food-safe and is used by patisseries and bakeries. This fabric is durable and can withstand high heat and repeated cycles in the dishwasher.

Whether you care about our environment, saving money, eating healthy, or looking stylish, LunchSkins are the answer to your plastic baggie blues—they offer an environmental benefit (reduce landfill waste), a practical benefit (they can be used hundreds of times and save you money over the long run), and a healthy choice (food tastes better in a pastry bag).
