Happy Earth Day!
We can all reduce our environmental impact on the world in a number of ways….recycling, using reusable bags at the grocery store, buying local, even unplugging unused electronics..but what if I told you you could make a difference with the clothing you wear?!
I recently learned of KikaPaprika, a mother-daughter owned direct sales clothing company, while I was away at a convention. My good friend (and roommate) is the Business Development Manager at KikaPaprika, and she had all sorts of great clothing that I was admiring. In typical woman fashion, she coerced me into trying some of it on. (Well maybe she didn’t exactly have to coerce me…) Some of you might think it was odd that I was trying on her clothing, but she INSISTED!! I loved every single thing I tried on! That’s pretty unusual for me. I’m not a shopper. I’m a mom of 3 with a crazy schedule, and I mainly shop online, with the exception of a local clothing boutique in my town. I have limited time to shop, but I want to look stylish (and be comfortable!)
Kim and Kirstyn Shaw have created a eco-friendly clothing line that is not only comfortable and flattering, but made in the USA as well! What does it mean to be eco-friendly? Well, it starts with their fabrics…they use 100% organic cotton, Tencel, and a recycled polyester/organic cotton blend in all of their clothes. Growing organic cotton helps the environment by eliminating the use of pesticides and insecticides. The toxins in these chemicals are hazardous to humans and animals and end up in the ground, air, water and our food supply. The cotton used in KikaPaprika clothing is 100% organic! Tencel is a super soft fabric made from eucalyptus pulp. And the poly in the poly/cotton blend is actually made from recycled water bottles…recycling at its finest! Again, a wonderfully soft fabric!
KikaPaprika sent me a few pieces from their line to try out, and I absolutely love them! I love how the Jackie looks dressed up with a scarf and worn over leggings, and the lightweight feel and softness of the Lisa. I also love that the Lisa is made from recycled water bottles! And oh, I so want the Gywneth, Moriah, and Stella tops as well!! I could seriously go on a shopping spree! Here’s a couple photos of me taken by my husband in my new Jackie, Scroll scarf and leggings, and the Lisa. A model I am not!
As I mentioned before, KikaPaprika is a direct sales organization, meaning their clothes are sold through informal home fashion shows. Their consultants earn 25-30% of their sales, working part time with a flexible schedule. With over 20 years experience in direct sales, Kim knows what it takes to run a successful business, and she speaks to her consultants weekly through conference calls, often bringing in guest speakers who can offer specific business knowledge to help small business owners. If you’re a stay at home or work at home mom, and you like fashion and are looking for additional part time income, you may want to learn more about KikaPaprika’s business opportunity. They offer all the resources and training you need to own your own boutique from the comfort of your own home! They are a relatively young company, only 5 years old, with about 65 consultants. Truly a unique opportunity!
How would you like to win some KikaPaprika clothes?! I’m very excited to let you know that they have offered to give a $100 gift certificate to one of my readers, in celebration of Earth Day!! Check out all the gorgeous styles on their website! Good luck!
