Hi, I'm Mary, the proud new owner of B. Lime.
I was a customer of B. Lime in the storefront and online before it closed. The previous owner of B. Lime, Wendi, and I have daughters that are just 5 days apart. As she was starting to carry more green baby products in her store, I was starting to use them! Needless to say, I felt really sad when she announced she was closing. I selfishly felt the loss- where was I going to buy Charlie’s Soap? I also felt sad for our community though- why couldn’t a Green Store flourish in C-U?
I was 7 months pregnant at the time, with a full-time job at the University, so it was certainly not an immediate decision for me to pursue purchasing the B. Lime brand. But it was constantly on my mind. While I was up in the middle of the night with pregnancy-related insomnia, I was envisioning how I could do it. A few weeks later, I remember telling my husband that I just couldn’t let it go. So I met Wendi for tea, and here we are!
I consider myself someone who "lives limes," that is, I do what I can to be green. It is tough to be 100% green, but livin’ lime is doable. For example, right now, at our house, we are introducing more vegetarian meals in our meal-planning. My goal is to limit our meat consumption to only locally-raised, pasture-fed products.
I most certainly already know my favorite part about the store- interacting with other families and moms! Don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments, or recommendations. I am more than willing to meet you by appointment, because I know how important it is for you to see and touch our products.
My older daughter is 3 and my baby is 1. They are both so sweet, and I love dressing them in cloth diapers!
