Working at the "cottage" means no more high heels nor skirt suits. I am always dressed down like a female Ranulph Fiennes as the "cottage" can get pretty cooooold. It is however nice and cool during the warm weather and I prefer to work in a t-shirt.
If you like to keep cool with an organic t-shirt, then pop over to our facebook fan page where you can win one in our Spread Hope prize giveaway. Winner(s) will be selected on Thursday 27th May 2010 so arm yourself with some knowledge about Sheabutter Cottage :)

Named after the secretary of the shea co-op in Gumu, we created this soap with 100% from sale being donated to the lovely ladies in Ghana - ie. all £2.90 of it.
We have now reduced it to clear [£2.03] to make room for an exciting project we are working on.

It has been an interesting week with the Bank holiday + elections and could not wait for today to do my happy shea dance.
If you follow me on twitter, you might have "heard me" moan for the past 10 days about our shea consignment from Ghana which was stuck at Felixstowe. Well my patience for waiting was rewarded today as I took delivery of our consignment of pure unrefined fair trade shea butter from Gumu. This is for bulk purchases of 25kgs+
I fully appreciated the advantage of having a unit on a working farm as I had to request a forklift within few minutes to off-load the consignment. I never thought I would get excited over a wooden pallet.

To end on a happy day, I had also received a notification via e-mail with the heading "Congratulations Akuawood." I was really curious to see what this was all about and here is the reason why.

I am so chuffed to bits to see our karite soap in EasyLiving
