Clean and Green: Herban Lifestyle
Headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC, Mary Kearns’ business calls one of the largest metropolitan areas in the nation home. But with easy access to the Shenandoah Mountains in the opposite direction, she’s not that far from rural America as well. That’s sort of the balance she sought to build into the name of her business.
“I wanted to get the idea across that herbs are an important part of my products, and to convey the idea that the ingredients come from the earth, as opposed to a chemistry lab,” she says. “Since I am located in an urban area, I thought that “Herban Lifestyle” captured the idea of getting back to nature and the basics, even in the context of a non-rural environment.”
We asked Mary to tell us more about her organic, natural, and Fair Trade ingredients, and about green news from Virginia that’s inspiring her these days.
