If you’re searching for a lush, decadent and vibrant city, look no further than Portland, Oregon. Yes, “Portlandia” where locals will tell you the parody is not that far from the truth.

Composting at the Doubletree

Last week, I visited Portland for the first time…also my first encounter with the fresh air of the Northwest. The city is incredibly green in multitude of ways, from its bountiful local parks to bike culture. They also have a citywide composting program that’s so thorough that they have composting in hotels!

“Grande Dame” roses at the International Rose Test Garden

My first stop in the city was Washington Park to visit the International Rose Test Garden. One of Portland’s nicknames is the “City of Roses,” and although there’s no one clear origin to this name, you will notice roses growing plentifully in people’s gardens, rose murals painted on walls and businesses using the word “rose.” I’m a lover of city parks, particularly gardens, so I was in my element. The rose garden is literally breaktaking with rows and rows of roses in vivid pinks, corals, red, yellows, and purples. They also have curious names ranging from “Betty Boop” to “Desmond Tutu”, from “Heart Song” to “Voluptuous”, from “Remember Me” to “Strike It Rich.” It’s easy to spend hours reading the names, breathing in thescents and marveling at the colors. It’s also a great place to read, relax and certainly people watch. Admission is free and there’s restrooms and an adorable gift shop.

Koi fish at the Japanese Garden

A short walk from the rose garden is the Portland Japanese Garden which formally opened in 1967. In the 5.5 acre park, there are five gardens including the Strolling Pond Garden, Tea Garden, Natural Garden, Flat Garden, and Sand and Stone Garden. There is a lot of running water meant to symbolize the life-giving force, along with stone (the “bones” of the landscape) and plants (the “tapestry of the four seasons’). Even with the numerous tourists, there is still a feeling of zen and there are many nooks where one can meditate, journal or daydream. One of my favorite parts was the Zig Zag bridge from which you can get up close and personal to the many koi fish swimming towards the Heavenly Falls. Admission is $9.50 and the garden is open daily to visitors.

Multnomah Falls

Speaking of falls, no nature loving trip to Portland would be complete without a trip to Multnomah Falls, a 611-foot cascade located about 30 minutes outside of town in the Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge area. The photo above shows a view from the bottom and a quick walk will take you to the bridge in the photo for a closer look of the falls. For those who want to see spectacular views and see the origins of the falls, there’s a mile hike up the mountain on a paved trail. It gets chilly because of the altitude and the shade but you will work up a sweat because it is steep! Once you get to the top, there’s incredible views of Mt. Hood and a pond that you can wade in or just dip your toes in. Let it be known that even in July that water is cold! But it’s refreshing and invigorating if you like a little shock to the system and to frolic in nature.

After that hike, there’s so many incredible food options back in Portland! I only got to sample a few but I recommend B Street Coffee House in the southwest section because of their local ingredients and tasty gluten-free waffles. I can safely say I had the best chai ever there, complete with coconut milk. Step your game up Starbucks! I also tried a gluten-free waffle sandwich with egg, spinach, tomato, onion and cheddar. It was an excellent way to start my day and cure my jetlag! Another favorite was Porque No?, a taqueria with two locations and some of the best Mexican food you’ll have in the city. They also use local and hormone-free meats, seafood, produce and dairy, and are committed to sustainability in all facets of their business. They even use rice bran oil which is recycled to fuel their errand vehicle. Good for the earth and your belly!

There’s so much to see, do and eat in Portland. There are so many city parks including Forest Park, over-the-top desserts at Voodoo Doughnuts and Salt and Straw’s farm-to-cone ice cream shop, bike lanes and bridges (the Tilikum Crossing, Portland’s only pedestrian and bike-only bridge will open soon!), and of course the famous Powell’s Books where you could get lost for a day. There’s also infinite murals and food trucks representing the city’s diverse communities. Portland is a thriving city tailor made for us Green Feminine Hygiene Queens!

Whether you’re hopping on a plane to an exotic destination or packing your trunk for the unique Soul Camp alternative style vacation we recommended in our last post,  we wanted to make sure to suit you up with some healthy and sustainable packing and airport travel tips for your summer travels!

Packing. You saved up all year to make this trip happen, now let’s get you equipped with some tips that will save you some space, time and money, all in great green queen style!

clear makeup bagTravel size items. We know, it’s so hard to find travel size versions of all the organic and natural products that you’re so committed to using on a daily basis and there is no reason why you should have to go traveling without them. We have a solution that will not only bring your hunt to an end but will also address all of the TSA’s requirements for carry on liquids! Pack your full size products in reusable containers like the assortment found in this cute clear travel makeup bag by Miamica. If you plan on taking your liquid essentials on board with you instead of checking them in with your baggage, this nifty item will also help you breeze through airport security lines because all the containers are packed in a clear bag and meet the 3.4 oz liquid maximum, as required by the TSA.

carry on bagBaggage. So now that you’ve got a sustainable carry on case for your organic personal care products, you’re going to need something to pack all your other clothes and items, including the sustainable swimsuit you might have purchased after reading our post on this Summer’s stylish picks.  This Eco Orbis style by Heys is a perfect fit for the eco-conscious traveler. It’s made with 100% recycled plastic and the fun purple color version makes it easy to spot at baggage claim!

If you need a stylish bag to take on board with you, kill two birds with one stone and make it a solar panel bag. This super classy piece by Noon Solar has a paper thin flexible solar panel with solar power storage battery built in to it! So for those old planes that don’t yet have electrical charging outlets built in to them, you’ll have your very own sustainable stash of renewable energy stored right in your chic looking bag!

water bottle

One of our favorite reusable water bottles to travel with because it’s easy to travel with (flat and foldable) and BPA free!

Reusable water bottle. We recommend never leaving home without it in general because plastic bottled water pollution is harmful, but you’ll especially want to have it when traveling because flying is super dehydrating! The cabin air on board is much drier than on the ground, leading to dehydration that could cause headaches, faintness and bad skin. Here’s a water drinking schedule that is sure to keep you hydrated through your travels – 1) Fill up your bottle before you leave the house and make sure to drink it before going through security, 2) Find a water fountain near your boarding gate and fill it back up before boarding, and #) ask the flight attendant to fill you up on one last round of filtered water (most planes have that option opposed to plastic bottles) midway through your flight.

 

Flying. Now that your bags are all packed, the exhausting prep for paradise is almost over. We’ve got a few more tips for the last leg of your preparations that will keep you feeling refreshed and ready to explore your exciting travel destination as soon as you land.

airport security scannerSecurity Scanner Radiation. Just another annoying barrier getting in the way of you and your vacation and quite possibly a carcinogenic one. As of June 2013, the TSA was to completely remove X-ray scanners from U.S. airports . Passengers felt the revealing images were an invasion of privacy and more importantly the ionizing radiation the scanners were emitting are known to be carcinogenic. Although the new AIT scanners’ millimeter waves are similar to the amounts of radiation  released by cell phones, they are said to be 1000 times better than the international limits and guidelines of exposure to radiation. Either way, have no fear, you still have the option to opt out of airport security scanners. You will then have to be willing to take a pat down though. As uncomfortable as that may be, it makes for a good start on our next tip.

airplane exercisesKeep your body moving. As fast as the airplane may be cruising, all that time in your seat isn’t allowing your blood to circulate enough, which can cause cramping and fatigue. So before you board, take a stroll through the airport hallways and shops instead of sitting impatiently by your gate or sipping on latte at the cafe. Once your on board, check out these great exercises to do from your airplane seat. You’ll have plenty of time to relax when you reach your destination and find yourself sprawled on a lounge chair at the beach.

sleeping on a planeSleep. Were you up all night packing or flying a red eye to give you an extra day of sightseeing? In that case, we understand if you want to skip the above tip and get some zzzz. Skip the prescription sleeping pills and try these natural alternatives that will lull you into a sleep that will make the shoulder of the passenger next to you feel as soft as the clouds look outside of your window. Start off by applying some lavender oil to calm your mind any stress you may be experiencing, sip on some chamomile tea to relax your body, and slip on an eye cover and some noise cancelling ear phones to block out any distractions. If you feel that’s not enough and prefer to pop a pill, try melatonin to supplement the natural hormone your body is already producing in order to assist with sleep.

Happy travels and let us know how these tips work out for you. Even better, comment here with your own tips and suggestions and you’ll win a free Maxim travel pack of cotton balls, rounds and swabs.

soul campAaaaah, we so love the glowing glory of the Summer season! School’s out, the kids are off to camp, vacations booked or maybe just taking a staycation; whatever the case may be for you this Summer, we encourage you to make some time for your soul and health before the winter months threaten the Vitamin D benefits provided by the natural healing euphoric elements of the Summer sun.

foundersThis month’s Maxim Hygiene’s Fierce Women of the Month, have created the ultimate setting for you to feed your soul with all the nostalgic essentials you may have experienced as a camper years ago or always dreamed of having as a kid, but could never afford. Michelle Goldblum and Ali Leipzig are co-founders of Soul Camp, adult sleepaway camp for the soul. Their soul sister type relationship budded years ago when they were little kids at sleepaway camp.

As adults, Michelle and Ali realized their poignant memories of camp had a life long impact on their experience of life in general, not only in the great friends they made but in the entrepreneurial successes they became and the spiritual soul seekers and inspirators they are. So they thought to themselves why can’t the fundamental principles of camp, “play, exploration, and untamed joy,” that fueled the ambitious expression of their own lives, continue to be offered to adults in combination with the spirit of the wellness revolution?

activitiesIn spending just a few minutes with these two fierce women, you’ll come to see how their bubbly personalities and caring sensibilities came to create the fun and meaningful camp itinerary for Soul Camp. With them, they bring a staff of internationally renowned yogis, health coaches, “joyologists,” astrologists and empowerment speakers that will overwhelmingly energetically illuminate the already beautiful star lit Poconos sky camp site.

We had the chance to interview these lovely ladies to  learn more about what makes them so “fierce” in their venture. Here’s what they had to say:

At Maxim Hygiene, we define a Fierce Woman as a “glorious female creature whose idea of beauty is hinged upon the idea that she can change the world with each choice, each moment and each breath of her life.” Who in your life is a Fierce Woman and why?

We are lucky to be surrounded by so many fierce women that it is incredibly hard to pick just one! To us, a fierce woman is one that knows that she has the power to bring about change, through love, not force. A woman that knows she was put on this planet to make it a better place than when she arrived. Our colleagues and friends are all so incredibly brave- moving past their personal fears, insecurities and stories to show other women that they can shine too.

How in the world did you come up with the amazing line up of “camp staff,” spiritual misfits, soul seekers and renowned yogis and health professionals that will be speaking and inspiring all the campers’ souls?

Great question! Ali and I came together and wrote out a list of all of the most incredible instructors, speakers, teachers and thought leaders we could think of. And every single person that we reached out to was a loud and excited YES! We think that all of these amazing staff members are just as excited as the campers to be at camp with one another!

Which part of Soul Camp are you most looking forward to?

We are so looking forward to walking around camp and watching as new friendships are born. Seeing people eat lunch together and share stories, watching as those women and men who came alone find “their people!” We are excited for the fear burning event at the bonfire, the all-camp talent show where campers and staff members will get to share their secret and amazing talents, watching as people exit the meditation yurt all zenned out, the disco with the amazing DJ Natasha Blank…there is so much we are looking forward to!

What does the concept of the “soul” mean to you?

To us, soul means the inner you that only knows joy. The you who is carefree, confident, and living in the moment. The guiding forces of your life.

If you could write a camp letter to your younger self, what would it say?

We would tell her to relax and enjoy. To find the people who she feels comfortable with. To try new things. To spend more time on the lake.

If there is one thing you want all your soul campers to leave with, what would it be?

A deeper connection with themselves and with their new friends. And practical tools to take the way they felt at Soul Camp into their daily lives.

We have a question wasn’t on our original list of interview questions, but after writing this post and reviewing the interview, we want to know – “Where can we sign up?!” Sign up here and let us know what you’re most looking forward to getting from your experience.

We would hate for you to head to Soul Camp without your most soulful organic and natural cotton tampons and pads, so anybody who signs up for Soul Camp after reading this post, will also get one free pack of any Maxim product of their choice. Email us at info@maximhy.com with your sign up confirmation to redeem your gift.

swimwear-Vitamin-A-558x390Hooray for beach season! Now that summer has officially started, I’m seriously plotting some beach time to lay in the sand and frolic in the surf with family and friends. In my excitement for beach fun, I went down the internet rabbit hole looking for a bathing suit that fits me well and won’t fall apart after one swim. My search led me to find eco-friendly bathing suits…I didn’t even know they existed!

Green Feminine Hygiene Queens, rejoice! There’s some fly styles available in all sorts of shapes, sizes and cuts that are made from recycled and organic materials, are sweatshop free and made in the U.S.A. Here are some of the best of the bunch:

Sleek-Cayenne-by-Vitamin-A-Post-2-Five-Designer-Swimwear-Brands-To-Know-Right-Now

Vitamin A is a sexy and sustainable swimwear company based in Southern California that has been seen on fabulous women including Heidi Klum, Halle Berry and Jessica Alba. Designer Ahmalia Stevens founded her business in 2000 using the special EcoLux, locally produced fabric, along with Repreve which is an eco-friendly fabric used in many bathing suits. She’s known for her “California cut” and created a solid following from this specialty. Vitamin A offers mix and match bikinis, coverups and wraps in a variety of colors and patterns covering all of your beachwear needs.

ecoswim_01_02

Eco Swim is another earth-friendly company that specializes in making fashionable swimwear from recycled and sustainable materials and “reducing your carbon footprint in the sand.” They are based in Pennsylvania and although they have global reach, all of their suits are made here in the United States. Their commitment to sustainability includes a corporate ban on products like styrofoam and participation in beach clean-up programs. So how can you find Eco Swim? The cool thing is that their suits are in a bunch of different retail stores so you can physically go pick one up, or you can shop online to your heart’s content. They have one-pieces, tankinis, bikinis and all sorts of pretty beach garb.

faherty

Finally, make sure you check out Faherty, a brand and company created by twin brothers with a penchant for fashion, design and sustainability. They only launched a year ago and have been featured in GQ and Vogue, and a few months ago opened their flagship store in Soho, New York City. Faherty uses only recycled materials to make their swimwear and, like us here at Maxim Hygiene, uses 100% organic cotton for their clothing. Their bathing suits are made from their “innovative blend of recycled polyester from plastic bottles blended with Lycra,” and are made in a small family owned factory in India that reuses water used to wash and soften the clothes. I personally am in love with their one-piece suits in funky prints or bright solid colors but they have a variety of bikini designs and fun beach fashion.

With these eco-friendly fashions, you can make a bold statement on the beach by being a gorgeous, earth-loving green feminine hygiene queen!

Today is the last day of school for the largest system of public schools in the United States, serving about 1.1 million students in over 1700 schools.

Green Queen RA talking menstruation with Bronx Park Middle School’s Green Tweens (students faces have been blurred to protect their identity).

Last week Maxim Hygiene Products’ VP and Co-Founder, Green Queen RA, was invited to speak about periods with ten budding Green Tweens at one of these 1700 schools, which happens to be former Green Queen SA’s Bronx Park Middle School classroom! Given many parents’ fears about how to talk to teenage girls about their periods and the past week’s highly publicized two Bronx middle school stabbings, you might be thinking which is scarier – talking to a group of teens about their periods or being in the vicinity of these tragic incidents?

We’re happy to report that neither scenario was intimidating for our Fierce Woman, Green Queen RA. In fact, she’s excited to share with you in the following guest blog post, her amazingly positive experience of spending the day with the Fierce Green Tweens of Bronx Park Middle School:

If you’ve read my story, you would know that teaching was my first love, which is probably why I take any excuse to share Maxim product information and educational tools in helping women and girls understand the benefits of using organic and natural chlorine free 100% cotton tampons and sanitary pads.

When Green Queen SA invited me in to her classroom to speak with her 11 – 13 year old Middle School teen girls, I was excited to tap in to my previous experiences in teaching to work with a different audience then the usual adult aged females I encounter as VP of Maxim Hygiene Products. I was gearing up for a group of shy and awkward teens who I thought had menstruation as the last thing on their list of things they wanted to learn about during their second to last week of school! Instead, I was welcomed with attentive, knowledgeable and enthusiastic girls eager to hear and share what they knew and experienced with periods. One student even had her favorite book on puberty handy to share with me!

You can see the student’s book pictured above, alongside my company’s favorite educational demonstration called the Absorbent Core Test. This is one of our interactive, fun and tactile ways to help show the difference between cotton fibers (used to make Maxim natural sanitary pads hypoallergenic, breathable and sustainable) vs. wood pulp fibers (the main ingredient of most ordinary sanitary pads that not only leads to deforestation, but irritation for many women). You can check out some of the other demos we shared by clicking here.

Not only were the girls so intrigued by the product education, but our discussions about puberty and all the trials, tribulations and rewards that come with this great right of passage were so thoughtful, engaging and meaningful beyond what I remember experiencing as a tween in the early 90s.

What impressed me the most about these students was their sensitivity towards each others’ and their own personal experiences with menstruation that they were so open to sharing. We of course took a vow of privacy that whatever we talked about in regards to this very personal matter would not be repeated beyond classroom doors so that everyone would feel safe about sharing; they proved their maturity in doing so when we left the school for a field trip together and nobody made mention or teased anyone about the somewhat sensitive conversations and open discussions we had.

Interestingly and ironically enough, my lesson on menstruation was integrated in to what the school calls “flow week,” a week long curriculum focused on expeditionary learning done in smaller advisory groups. So after we talked about Aunt Flow, I accompanied the group to The New York Botanical Gardens for their “Flow Week” expedition of the day.”

This beautiful pristine and popular NYC tourist site is located walking distance from the school and is home to one of the most extensive and diverse living plant collections and some of the world’s most distinguished garden designs.  To be out in nature amongst the glory of all the gardens was just fantastic!

We found Rose Hip at the New York Botanical Gardens!

We were even more delighted when we got to extend the lesson on menstruation beyond the classroom and to the gardens by finding real live samples of rose hip (pictured below), the fruit of a rose plant that is commonly used in teas made specifically for women on their period. Rose hip is rich in iron, a mineral our body can use to help replenish all the blood we lose during our periods. We’re all about the natural and herbal PMS remedies!

It was such a treat to spend my day with these impressive Green Tweens and even moreso a reminder of my great value for hard working teachers like those I got to meet at Bronx Park Middle School. These girls were already so equipped and knowledgeable about their changing bodies and the importance of protecting the environment that it was clear to me that this school was meeting it’s mission of “provide our students with a safe, personalized, and inspirational space so that they can bring their best self to work, think deeply about themselves and their challenges, think creatively about their choices and solutions, learn about each other as individuals, and never give up.

On this last week of school for many teachers in the U.S., I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you for all the hard work you do to keep our youth informed and educated for the overall benefit of our larger society. Happy Summer Break!

And thank you Green Queen RA for taking the time to visit these young girls as they cross through the stage becoming women. If you’d like more information about how you can approach a lesson on menstruation with your tweens or students, email us at info@maximhy.com and we’ll be happy to help!

Men have a reputation for getting really awkward when it comes to conversations around menstruation, but is this really true and can you really blame them?

Our primary focus as a company is the cultivation and embrace of Fierce Women, but this month, in lieu of Father’s Day, we’ve been honoring the great men in our circle who are just as fierce, specifically when it comes to taking care of the fierce women in their lives.

Based on our experience at Maxim Hygiene Products, where we interact with people from all over the world  searching for healthier menstrual care products, we are amazed and overly humbled by the great men we encounter. They defy the great stereotype of men who cringe at the thought of periods. We’d like you to meet Ian and Michael, two grand cases in point…

men and menstruation

Ian (pictured on the left) visits us every few months on his way home from work to pick up a case of his wife’s favorite Maxim Ultra Thin Winged Pads. Ian is always happy to go out of his way to take care of this request for his wife and this month we sent home with some free samples for his daughter too!

Michael (pictured on the right) is our electrician. He spent some extra quality time with us this month, helping us get ready for the big move to our new offices. During that time,  Ken, Maxim’s Founding Father (pictured in the pic with Michael, wearing a pink shirt), took the opportunity to share some detailed product knowledge with Michael. We have to admit that Michael was a little hesitant at first, but by the time Ken got through to him about all the great benefits the women in his family could get by using organic and natural tampons and pads, he was happy to leave that day with a bag of free samples. He came back the next day with smiles and eager to tell us about how menstruation and organic and natural menstrual products made for an interesting conversation at dinner.

Natural Sanitary Pads - Maternity, 10s - Hori

Another one of our favorite customers who asked to remain anonymous (we’ll call him “Mr. T” for the purpose of this story) calls us every few months to place an order of Maxim Maternity Pads for his wife who sadly has a terminal illness that keeps her bed-ridden and in need of an incontinence product that will not irritate her skin. Like many women in her situation or those dealing with weakening bladders that cause light urinal leakage, Mrs. T suffers from hypersensitivity to the chemicals and materials found in conventional incontinence pads because she has to wear pads on a daily basis. Using Maxim’s 100% chlorine free cotton pads helps relieve this one symptom of the many she unfortunately faces, under her already uncomfortable predicament. Although one of our sadder stories, we are always warmed by Mr. T’s gracious commitment to his wife’s comfort.

Keeping these stories in mind, we would say it’s no coincidence that the word “men” is found in the word “MENstruation.”  Without the involvement of men in the understanding of menstruation and female reproductive systems, our feminine powers would not be able to flow so brightly!  So thank you to all the men who are open to this truly mesmerizing female bodily function that is part of the gateway to the creation of life.

Last week our Fierce Woman of the Month, Natalie Berthold, reminded us of how important it is to acknowledge a father’s presence and contribution to any family unit. With her teachings, we also found ourselves guilty of and immersed in what Natalie called “a world where feminism is swarming and women are kicking ass”, leaving little space for a man to feel important and needed. (one small piece of guilty evidence on our part: whenever our favorite song,  Beyonce’s “Who Run the World?,” pops up on Pandora, we can’t help but rub it in our fellow male team members’ face by turning the volume up and belting the “Girls” part out a little louder than necessary).

I mean, we are a feminine hygiene company, so it sort of makes sense for us to be tooting the horns of our fellow green queens, but we also know behind every Green Feminine Hygiene Queen is a loyal, extremely hardworking and committed Green Feminine Hygiene King. So for this post we decided to take Natalie’s advice and show a little love and gratitude to our company’s founding father for something special he did for us and the continued strong growth of our company.

As we learned two weeks ago in the “M is for Maxim” post, Kenneth Alvandi, Founder and CEO of Maxim Hygiene Products, put 25 years worth of life experience in to creating the Maxim brand. What we haven’t told you yet is the extremely bold move he recently made to expand our kingdom….he bought us a new home/office/warehousing facility/a whole lot more!!!

We found this cool quote on a note at our doorsteps just a few days after we moved in and took it as a clear sign of being welcomed to the neighborhood.

We are so excited and thankful for Kenneth’s continued commitment to growing our company with this great new space. Here’s a little message of thanks to Kenneth and/or a little father’s day wishes from everyone on our team. Please join us by sharing your thoughts of gratitude about your fathers too! Happy Father’s Day everyone!!!
