New Living was featured on today’s airing of Great Day Houston. Jennifer and I spent 12 minutes speaking with Deborah Duncan about how our products help to create healthier, cleaner, safer homes. We presented some of our green cleaning products, paint, and organic bedding to help you go green at home. To be showcased on the show is just another reminder that Houston cares about its well-being and its impact on our planet. We gave each audience member a sample of our home made laundry detergent, and let Deborah relax on one of our organic mattresses. Deborah did a wonderful job of capturing what New Living is all about. She is even planning to come by the store to get some non-toxic paint for her home!
Our new website went live today! We designed the site to make it easy to purchase our products, learn about New Living, and stay on top of what’s happening in our store. We’re still working on the web store, but we hope you find our new site enjoyable and informative.

This week the Houston Business Journal completed their “Then and Now” piece on New Living, which they began on February 15, 2008.
