A New, Positive Turn on an Old Theme

"For over 50 years we've had the peace sign that we all know. Unfortunately, the symbol with the "arms" facing down, represents death and despair.

We've taken the symbol and simply turned it around. Now the arms are raised up in hope, joy and positive energy.

Rather than anti-war, it's pro-peace. It may seem like a small change, but as you know, it's always better to wish for what you want, rather than what you don't want. Only a positive intent achieves a positive result."

This is the introduction on the "Turn Peace Around" Etsy shop's front page, an it says it better than I ever could! I love the idea behind this shop, and I love the pieces they have for sale there too! They currently carry hemp jewelry, beautiful hand-painted totes and magnets and have plans to offer much more in the future as well.

I personally have my eye on one of their totes, and if you agree with their message and like to shop green, I can't think of a better bag for the cause so you should check them out too!

I just LOVE the idea of Turn Peace Around! This mother/daughter team is a winner in my eyes. I was so excited about their shop, I asked for an interview. And they accepted! Thanks for the link, Gilliauna! {:-Deb
