For Earth Month, The Vine Events interviewed Tiffani Davis, owner of Tiffy’s Corner. It is time to move beyond awareness to acceptance. It is time to accept and act upon our responsibility to replenish the earth. We believe Tiffy’s Corner has made this transition and is doing their part by providing healthy products.
Q&A Interview With Tiffani Davis
What’s the name of your company and what inspired you to start it?
The name of my company is Tiffy’s Corner. I was inspired to start Tiffy’s Corner because we live in a fast paced synthetic world. I wanted to provide people with inexpensive healthy products.
What type of products do your company provide?
Tiffy’s Corner provides many affordable healthy products. In today’s world, our food and body care products are loaded with ingredients that are extremely toxic to our bodies. Both inside and out.
I provide healthy baked goods that are as natural as can be. No preservatives or artificial ingredients of any kind. “You are what you eat” and I wouldn’t want anyone to be a lab created synthetic science experiment.
I am a firm believer that if you can’t digest it, don’t put it on your skin. This became my concern when we had children. As a parent, you want to protect your child from as much as possible. Well when you really read what is in these products, it really makes you wonder. All of the major company products are dangerous if ingested…Why would you make such a product for an infant or child? Infants and children constantly have their hands in their mouths; it’s natural for a child to be oral. Even though they may not bring that lotion bottle to their mouths and drink it (well my daughter did), the product is still on their skin. Not only are they ingesting harmful chemicals when the hands do go in the mouth, but it is getting absorbed through the skin. I felt it was time to provide us all with healthier options for our skin.
What do you find most rewarding in what you do?
I have to say that the most rewarding part of Tiffy’s Corner is the fact that I provide healthy organic products that are in reach for all walks of life; no matter what your financial situation. It breaks my heart to see how expensive organic products can be. Not everyone can afford the majority of what is out there today, but everyone should be able to afford and live an organic healthy life.
Our theme for Earth Month is “Replenish The Earth”. Why do you think it’s important to replenish the earth?
“Replenish The Earth”?… Ahhh, I could go on for days on this subject! I don’t think I could stress enough the impact humans have on this planet. We have become a cancer to our planet and need to provide a cure ASAP! If you do just a little research on the global changes occurring, it should light a fire under some of us to make the appropriate changes needed to sustain our planet. Unfortunately, people don’t want the truth…why? Because its inconvenient, the thought of making a change in their everyday life is scary and God forbid it just might slow them down! I believe that as soon as humans felt the need to speed everything up (transportation, building, growing, curing, etc) is when we began destroying Mother Earth .
It’s time to slow down. It’s time to step back and take a look at our water supply, take a look at the forest and the lack of trees, take a look at the amount of trash we accumulate, take a look at the mutations of animals, insects, and yes humans. It’s time to give back to this planet . Because we are only guest here. The trees, plants, animals, and insects can do just fine without us. We have become an unwanted house guest!
There are so many ways to make a difference. Plant a tree. It doesn’t have to cost much. Save a few seeds from an apple or orange and go for it! Start it on your widow sill and know that as soon as it begins to sprout, you have already began to make a difference . Be aware of your water use. No need to use more than you actually need. In our home we have a few grey water lines that irrigate plants outside. This reduces water use greatly. I barely turn on the outside hose in the spring or summer. But you don’t have to go through the great lengths of installing a grey water system. Catch rain water for your garden and indoor plants. When you wash those fruits and veggies, don’t just let that water go down the drain, catch it in a bowl and use for plants as well.
If we don’t take these steps and reverse the damage we have done, we will have no future. I urge us all to sit quiet, join hands, listen to Mother Earth, and begin the rebirth of our planet. It’s time for change.
