Coastal Classic Creations

Coastal Classic Creations would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves on CTN Green after having been contacted by Robin Rudoy. Robin found our website through Green People, an organization with whom we have linked hands in an effort to continue our mission to provide a diverse combination of eco-friendly, cruelty-free, vegan, and organic home and body care products.

Robin was so personable and easy to speak with that we found an immediate connection, and we instantly decided that supporting CTN Green through the mechanism of blogging was a way that we could connect with people who may not otherwise find us.

To give you a bit of background into our company, we are a husband-and-wife owned business located approximately 20 miles south of San Francisco on the coast. We started our company in 2001 with goat's milk soap, and in these last seven years have added organic cosmetics, pet care products, fashionable eco-green tote bags, body butters, and much more.

All of our products are cruelty-free, biodegradable, and ph-balanced. They are free from irradiation, organophosphate residues, alcohol, detergents, fragrance oils, phthalates, parabens, propylene glycol, FD&C colorants, cocamide DEA, animal fats, sodium lauryl sulfate, urea, petroleum, lanolin, titanium dioxide, lead, formaldehyde, and Germall II, a preservative whose chemical composition is Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, and Propylene Glycol, to name a few.

Our company believes in full ingredient disclosure, and we hold our suppliers to the same standards.

We sell product, not packaging. We use recyclable jars and biodegradable packaging products in an effort to eliminate the strain of excess waste on our environment. We are fair trade.

Please visit our website http://www.coastalclassiccreations.com/ for more information, and contact us. We would love to hear from you.

New Segment underway at CTN, but for this one we decided to hookup some social networking and open it to public interaction. This is a global thing, you can be anyone anywhere on the planet.

ok .... so what is ECOasis ?

Essentially an OASIS is a small eco-system in the desert that manages to survive out in the middle of nowhere, all by itself, usually based on a spring water source. An ECOASIS is the name we cobbled up to call a place you can can build (not that you live in a desert but we are guessing you dont allocate much room to eco-green yet either), and progressively grow your ecozone of an oasis as you incorporate more of the renewable,recyclable and sustainable action into your style and life.


Making a big green-centric impact on your life or abode is too daunting for most, best that you do what you can, learn what you should and take it a step at a time. We suggest an Ecologically sensible little green OASIS within your own home or apartment,, something like a recycle/garden corner perhaps to start , a small space and place to get your green-side happening.

Its all good.

My ecoasis is at the moment a small palm tree planter with a recepticle in the side for holding bottles for recycle. I want to make more of that starting point and plan to document that effort as it takes over the room it is in, get suggestions and do them. In this way you can literally decide to have me do stuff and then see it on screen and in video. We just added storage there for re-usable shopping bags ( 5 big ones and 2 insulated "cooler" bags ) thanks to one suggestion we got a moment ago.

YOU CAN HAVE AN ECOASIS TOO... or maybe you already do stuff like that and dont have a name for it.... all the better.

For the moment we will just take comments into this blog, but tomorrow we will have a youtube channel and gallery so you can paricipate if you like, and see what others have made.

These things have a public rating system in a way, so the most ( even a few votes is good ) voted on will get a CTN GREEN ECOASIS t-shirt and maybe a few gifts in a CTN GREEN goodie bag. Its more important however that you do this for yourself, you know its time to progress forward, we just want to help with some trinkets and incentive.

Big Green Magazine

This is a pic of our wide and full screen magazine, with embedded video and interaction. Its in Beta Preview at the moment - very much in the look-see stage for a launch very soon. we invite you to take a look ( ideal for the 1680 x 1050 wide screen user who is so under-served these days )

please do post a comment on that and let us know your thoughts.

Green Concept Urbanite travelpods

We Are not real sure about this one but it is rather unique... has a kid-like robot interface.

The Nissan Pivo is a concept car by Nissan and is powered by a lithium-ion battery. The car is essentially a 360 degree rotating cabin on a chassis of 4 wheels, and hence eliminates the need for reversing and makes parking easier. The car's futuristic design incorporates large doors for easy access to the cabin and large windscreens and windows for high visibility. The pivoting wheels allow it to go sideways and automates parallel parking - no worries, no problems.

For the Green in you...

we have T's for 10 bucks ( at cost actually ). Good Deal for a nice totally organic made-in-america thing. It supports the CTN Green Carbon-Neutral Offset program we are starting, so each item in our store gets a 1/2lb of CO2 into offset. Its a start.

Bay City - SecondLife

We sort of appropriated a location in SecondLife ( http://www.secondlife.com/ ) that was available and now you can visit there if so inclined. It is a Green Structure with Solar powering, and variable window tinting. There is a small theater and lounge.
its loaction Link is:
