Women Owned Businesses Collaborate to Release a New Spring Product Line
Rise Up: The Roots Revival Box
A collaborative group of 9 Western New York women owned businesses, with a focus on
earth-based business models and thoughtful consumption, have come together to create the
NEW Spring product line, Rise Up: The Roots Revival Box. Each box is an eco-conscious,
sustainably packaged collection of products designed to bring awareness of how things are
made and sourced to raise awareness of the importance of conscious consumerism and
contains a product specific to each involved entity. The concept highlights our fragile ecosystem
and was formed around the idea of fresh beginnings and putting down new, more healthy roots,
timed with Springtime revival.
Each Roots Revival Box includes earth-friendly products such as fresh local lavender plants
from Wild Blossom Hollow, organic goats’ milk soap from Alpine Made, local honey from
Hahn’s Honeybee Haven, and a collection of seeds and pollinators from Masterson’s Garden.
Local artists have included fine art highlighting subjects and materials from nature.
“I’ve always believed in the power of community and collaboration, especially when working with
creative businesses and in the arts – it’s vital. But watching the last year unfold and how the
circles of people we rely on really rallied and drew together and made it work so their dreams
were protected was fierce, and I wanted to try to pull together something that would bring how
important these women-centric businesses and sustainable small business models are – not just
to us but to ALL the communities we’re a part of, including our natural communities and the
eco-systems – into focus.” – says Tami Fuller, of Blubird Studio in East Aurora, who had the
idea for the collaboration.
“When an opportunity arises to collaborate with other women, I will always jump at it. It’s so
important we support one another. This product wraps everything that Borderland Festival
represents on a sustainability level into one beautiful, sweet scented package and we are so
excited to be a part of the synergy and the message. ~ Jennifer Brazill, Owner of Borderland
The boxes cost $100 and include 9 product items from each business. They are available for
pre-order from 4/22 until 5/12 at https://www.oneblubirdstudio.com. Purchased Roots Revival
