THE BORDEN SCRAPBOOK

Our scrapbook isn’t just a place to showcase our rants, raves, healthy highlights and special projects, it’s actually our method of presenting, arranging and preserving what we do. For our small but mighty team, we do a lot. It might seem disjointed and unfocused, but trust us, everything we take on makes sense to us, and when it doesn’t we pull it out of our scrapbook. We love pasting in new finds and resources, inspiring people who are true forces for good (we call them “mosquitos” for a reason), things that outrage us, interesting perspective and lots of food for thought. We hope you will flip and click and scroll and make good use of what we share – that is why we spend the time to share. It’s organized chaos, and we hope it will propel you to be curious, explore and find solutions for you to make your everyday a little better, no matter what you are after or just happen upon.

If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.


OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

Not All Tampons Are Created Equal

If you get your period, or live with someone who does, you might be aware of how everything works in cycles, including needing a little extra support from “medical devices” (tampons are actually categorized as so). Do you know what they are made of?  Tampons can be convenient, discreet, and easy to use, wear, and dispose of. But… Not all tampons are created equal. Tampons can actually be pretty dangerous for our bodies, our vaginas, and the environment, despite being one of the most frequently used…

Weightless UnMeditation

Imagine feeling weightless! Marconi Union produced “Weightless”, a “song” with so many benefits … and we share it with you with excitement … the relaxed kind. ‘Weightless’ has received an award for the song that produced the greatest state of relaxation (over any other piece of music tested to date).   How can music exert such a powerful effect? “Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those…
