Homespun BLM products including cookie kits, garden gnomes raise concerns of exploiting movement

A few weeks after nationwide protests erupted over the police killing of George Floyd, Julie Muller looked for something positive she could contribute to the movement from her Houston home.

The 67-year-old white woman, who has been selling homemade cookie-decorating kits online since March, decided to offer one with a Black Lives Matter theme. The kit comes with cookie cutters imprinted with former President Barack Obama’s face, sprinkles and icing in red, black and green — the colors of the Pan-African or Black Liberation flag.

Other examples of homespun BLM merchandise include wine stoppers and even garden gnomes — objects more often associated with white suburbia. The white sellers insist they are not trying to make light of racial issues or widen their profit margins. But to many onlookers, the sales through the crafts marketplace Etsy may straddle an uncomfortable line between supporting the movement and exploiting it.

Muller’s three children were the first to warn her she might appear to be capitalizing on racial unrest. But that’s partly why she wanted to act.

“I’ve been thinking about what’s systemic racism and what is racial profiling,” Muller said. “It’s more about doing my part. What can I offer?”

The protest movement ignited by Floyd’s death in May under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer compelled businesses large and small to declare publicly that they were “woke” to the pain of Black people. Manufacturers soon began making BLM T-shirts, face masks and signs.

It’s not surprising that independent merchants wanted to express solidarity too, said Patti Williams, an associate professor of marketing at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.

To demonstrate sincerity, sellers should commit to making these items permanently to show their efforts are not just an attempt “to jump on a fad,” she added.

There’s also potential for the items themselves to be seen as offensive or tone-deaf.

Ashleigh Boutelle, 45, of Twin Peaks, California, custom paints garden gnomes as a side business. After making gay pride gnomes, he decided in July to try painting a Black Lives Matter gnome. The yellow-and-black-clad gnome — a nod to the colors used on a Black Lives Matter website — wears a “BLM” hat. He also painted it with a darker skin tone.

“I was just trying to be very careful and present something that you might say is neutral,” Boutelle said. “Hopefully, someone who sees it is not offended.”

He has since gotten a few orders for either Black Lives Matter gnomes or African American gnomes. Boutelle hopes people don’t question his sincerity because his support is displayed on a mythical figure with a pointy hat.

“I like the idea of offering it to

This woman entrepreneur is using Instagram to sell home decor and gifting products

Sisters-in-law Priyanka Sharma and Anjali Dawar started The Doodle Hut a year ago. Priyanka (29) says that she would spend her weekends collecting pieces of art and decorating the walls at home along with Anjali (34). After bouncing off some ideas over a cup of coffee one weekend, they decided to design their own wall art and decided to start up.

“This was an opportunity to be creative and entrepreneurial at the same time. The idea was to create customised products that spark the same joy of wall designing in others as well,” says Priyanka, who has a master’s degree in Mass Communication and journalism from Delhi University.

Based in Delhi, The Doodle Hut designs home décor essentials and gifting solutions like string nameplates, door hangings, personalised engraved boards, and DIY string arts, among others. The products are priced between Rs 299 and 3,500, and delivered in four to seven days across India.

The Doodle Hut team

(From L to R) Anjali Dawar and Priyanka Sharma, co-founders of The Doodle Hut, and Priyanka’s mother Meena Sharma

Thriving on social media

During the first few months of operations, they exhibited at well-known festivals and flea markets in Delhi, including Horn Ok Please. At the three-day long festival, all their products got sold out.

However, the co-founders are making the most of internet platforms. Priyanka and Anjali launched their business on Instagram in August 2019, which also provides a basic insight into customer interest and behaviour and helps nurture leads. They say the days of looking for shops and negotiating for rent and other benefits are long gone. Instagram, along with WhatsApp for Business and Amazon has lent itself very well to perform B2C operations.

Started with an initial investment of Rs 90,000, Priyanka says they are focussed on expanding their product offerings and not actively seeking funds. The entrepreneur claims that each post on Instagram gets sold within two hours, and the company has registered profits twice its initial investment so far.

While arts and crafts is not a novel idea on the internet, they believe that understanding customer’s needs and offering customised gifting products sets them apart from others in the space.

Additionally, “The online gifting industry is one of the contributors to the growth of the Indian ecommerce space. The way I see it, having more players in the design and gifting space only helps boost creativity,” she adds.

Hiring and challenges

While they take care of the designing and the craft work, Priyanka’s mother has also joined the business. Her skills in crocheting has helped introduce new products like crochet and macrame wall hangings and plant holders.

A team of eight women, Priyanka shares that while hiring and expanding the team, the candidates do not require prior skills and are trained for 15 days. 

On her nieces’ birthday, Priyanka donated a part of The Doodle Hut’s revenue to an NGO for old people in Delhi. She says she saw

Pet owners could talk to their vets about CBD, marijuana products under Michigan House-passed bill

Products promising to alleviate a beloved pet’s pain with CBD oil or THC have long been available to consumers – but Michigan veterinarians are currently operating in a legal gray area when talking about those products with pet owners.

Many Michigan lawmakers are hoping to change that. This week, a bill that would let veterinarians consult with pet owners about the use of marijuana or industrial hemp products for their animals passed the Michigan House unanimously.

Rep. Greg Markkanen, R-Houghton, sponsored the bill after learning from veterinarians in his district that while clients often have questions about how products containing CBD or THC could affect their pet’s health, state law doesn’t explicitly allow veterinarians to discuss the pros and cons of the products with pet owners.

Veterinarians also aren’t technically allowed to initiate discussions about whether a pet has been exposed to marijuana – which experts say can pose problems for treating animals, as THC can interact with other medications or cause medical issues in the event of an accidental overdose.

“We must make sure our veterinarians are able to have open and honest conversations with people about using products containing CBD oil and marijuana to care for their pets,” Markkanen said in a statement following the passage of his bill.

In January, the House Agriculture Committee heard from veterinarians that the law could help lead to better information and research about appropriate uses and side effects for animals, and also help pet owners get trusted medical advice on the products instead of having to research it on the internet.

“Without the correction, it holds our hands behind our backs in properly advocating what would be proper for their pet,” Dr. Kellie Holmstrom, a Marquette veterinarian who helped inspire the legislation, previously told lawmakers.

Michigan has allowed medicinal marijuana use since 2008, and hemp and recreational marijuana were legalized in 2018. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a hemp-derived extract that can be added to oils and lotions and is used as a natural remedy for anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain.

Sales of CBD pet products have increased rapidly throughout the country, increasing from $8 million in 2017 to $32 million in 2018, according to the Brightfield Group. The firm estimates the CBD pet market could reach $1.16 billion nationwide by 2022.

The legislation, House Bill 5085, is now before the Michigan Senate. It would need to pass the Senate and be signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to become law.

Do Your House Cleaning Products Affect Your Health?

Most homeowners expect house cleaning products to do one thing – clean. Many consumers focus more on punchy taglines such as “kills 99% of bacteria” or “tough on stains and grease!”. But they neglect the fact that store-bought cleaning products contain a lot of harmful chemicals.

Most likely, you check the food labels to make sure that they are organic, MSG-free, etc.before you buy them. But do you ever stop to check the labels of the cleaning products you buy?

Admit it or not, you think your cleaning product is the best because it promises to kill more bacteria than its competitors. What you don’t know is that many of these cleaners and detergents contain harmful ingredients, which are great for cleaning but poses a certain danger to your health.

Read The Label: What It Says Matters

How do you know if a cleaning product is harmful? You need to know what chemicals are dangerous to your health and avoid buying products that contain such ingredients. These include bleach, parabens, ammonia. They affect your health in several ways but mostly affect the lungs. With continued and excessive exposure, these toxins can affect other parts of your body, too.

Several eco-friendly cleaning products contain VOCs or volatile organic compounds. Some products are labelled as natural, but it doesn’t mean they are safe to use. Don’t be fooled! There’s nothing organic with these products. They can lead to chronic respiratory illnesses and headaches. Products containing VOCs include air fresheners, oven sprays, dish detergents, floor polish, and aerosol sprays, to name a few.

Go Green!

Although purchasing “eco-friendly” or “green” products is a sensible choice, making sure that your cabinets are filled with safe and healthy cleaning solutions does not always mean that they are the best options. Cleaning agents aren’t regulated and held in the same standards, such as food. Simply put, there are “green” products that aren’t any better than regular cleaning agents.

So how can you make sure that you are getting an effective and healthy cleaning agent? Simple! Make your own! You don’t have to overspend. You can simply use basic items that you most likely already have in your home. A few ingredients you can use include salt, lemon juice, vinegar, water, baking soda, and borax.

You will have countless options when it comes to making a green cleaning solution using simple and affordable ingredients. For example, you can create a natural scrubber using lemon juice and salt. Get rid of stubborn stains by sprinkling baking soda and vinegar on the affected area. It will trigger a chemical reaction that will lift the stain without any problem. But if you are not really into doing the cleaning by yourself, you always have the option to hire a company who offers house cleaning services while using only the best and safest green cleaning solutions.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a housekeeper, a business owner, or a homeowner, always remember that using store-bought cleaners can lead to health issues, …

Bathroom Remodeling Products and Services

There are so many things that can be upgraded when it comes to remodeling your bathroom. From the ceiling to the floor there are plenty of improvements to consider. Many people stick to minimal upgrades and will replace the flooring or paint the walls, but there are many more upgrades available. Replacing tubs or installing vanities are two improvements that really enhance a bathroom. Here are some products and services to consider during the makeover process…

Whirlpool and air bathtubs are luxurious upgrades that are actually beneficial to your health. Many older people enjoy them for their health benefits as they reduce stress, relieve pains associated with arthritis, improve blood circulation and digestion, and relax muscles. Whirlpool tubs can be adjusted by temperature and speed. The number of jets and where they are located can all be custom installed by a contractor. Air bathtubs differ from whirlpools because the water is rising from the bottom, there is less pressure, the pressure is not targeted by jets, and the tub does not need to be full for the air bath to operate. The option to have a combination of air and jets is always available.

Many people crave a spacious standup shower in their bathroom, but instead have a traditional bathtub. Not to mention as you get older or if you have limited mobility, getting in and out of a bathtub can be dangerous. Matter of fact, over 200,000 people a year are sent to the hospital from slipping in the bathtub. Stand up showers are a safe and attractive choice. You can customize a stand up shower with jets, shower heads, seats, shower caddies, handrails and more. There are even tile and flooring options now that are grout free and therefore are guaranteed not to leak. This is great because they require far less maintenance as you do not have to deal with cleaning moldy grouts.

Vanities are always a nice upgrade with many different product options. You can have your vanity custom installed based on your height. There are different wood shades to choose from and countertop materials like granite or quartz. During this installation you will also have to consider what kind of sink you want along with cabinetry hardware and sink nozzle and spout hardware.

Not only are there tons of different services to consider when remodeling a bathroom, but there are even more products and styles to choose from. There are upgrades available in a full range of prices and free estimates can always be given by a contractor. You should be able to easily locate one locally online.
