products at a price point affordable to more people. Touchstones members save 25%.
Patricia Tedeschi, Owner
Bio: Balance is when many component parts come together to create a harmonious state of mind, body and soul. The concept of balance is important in every aspect of our lives, particularly skincare. Ayurveda is the pursuit of balance–and a life of balance has no painful extremes, and little fragmentation. Ayurveda sets extremely high standards, because its basic view of
health and its concept of “natural” are at once more encompassing and
more refined. Better Botanicals is committed to this standard of skin care.
Ayurveda changed my life, shifting it toward yoga, meditation, and a more conscious awareness of life and the part I am meant to play. After adopting this outlook, it was no surprise when I had a serendipitous opportunity to become a co-owner of Better Botanicals. What a synergy between what is important to me and the opportunity to share these wonderful products with other people. And in this way, my desire led to balance in my own life!

Rachel Alston, Owner
Bio: Growing up in a family business, I've always aspired to start my own company. I had the professional experience, but didn't know what to focus on. I wanted to develop a business with a mission that I truly believed in. As a health and budget conscious woman, I've always been appalled by the 'poisonous' beauty products on the market (not to mention their outrageously high cost). This is how Earth Diva Cosmetics was created. My simple mission is to provide my customers with a healthy, affordable, earth friendly alternative to traditional makeup products. I want women to be themselves - naturally beautiful.
For the Love of Wood Custom Furniture
Custom Furniture, Altars and Meditation Benches
Every day we see mass produced furniture, made to last only years. Even the "artisan" created furniture crafted with expensive machinery is often designed for quick proﬁt and fast output. This lack of personal touch and true working of the piece dulls the heart within the wood and thus the art within the ﬁnal product. Structurally perfect, however empty of energy, grace and spirit. I believe trees have an extraordinary inner core as complex and beautiful as any living being. In fact, they give us life, a true Mother. I try to uncover this wonderful essence in both my woodworking and in myself. Touchstones members save 25%.

working for many years developing and managing mental health programs I
turned my attention to the design and fabrication of furniture. I grew
up in San Francisco and now work in my Bay Area studio. I love the

beneath the bark. Seeing a piece unveil it's beauty is always like
unwrapping a very special gift.

Touchstones members save 10%.
Caroline Villella, Owner
Bio: Green Ostrich was inspired by the following observation: the energy-intensive retail stores that we frequent do not offer many Earth-friendly, green products. That, and I was spending a lot of time and energy driving in our car to and from these stores. So, I decided to create an online store dedicated to Earth-friendly, green products to spark a consumer movement that requires environmentally-sound solutions for our lives. At Green Ostrich we help people make changes, not sacrifices. The power to make change rests with the individual consumer. We help them live well and refresh the Earth.

Bio: Several years ago my son got diagnosed with serious health problem. It was my last day as an employee. We did whatever we could: we moved out of town, started organic gardens and spent days and nights on health research. It was disheartening to confront the effects of toxins in our lives, our food and the condition of the environment that our children are inheriting. My research opened the door to meeting a lot of caring people, especially women who are doing so much - helping their families, neighborhoods and our planet. Lots of inspirational stories and examples to follow. Eating organic food, living close to nature lead me to my business: Natural Clothing Company.
