Gilden Tree at the Naturally Green Expo

(Originally published May 5, 2010)

Never say it can't happen - and right here in our own backyard!

Omaha was finally host to a "green" show and Gilden Tree was there as an exhibitor at the "Naturally Green" Expo last Saturday and Sunday.

It was fun to be around other "greenies" for the weekend and to get a chance to chat with many of the other vendors: especially organic farmers (nice to have great cheese across the aisle), the Slow Foods Nebraska folks and Safe Earth, the organic lawn care company we use.

We met tons of neat people, and of course like any hometown event - bumped into old friends! Thanks for everyone who stopped by to chat and try Gilden Tree, especially the out-of-towners who were in Omaha for the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting. We never realized how many people already use and love Gilden Tree!

Thought you'd enjoy seeing some of the photos (albeit with poor lighting) and the expo commercial where our towels make a very brief appearance.

Special thanks to Carrie, Kumy and Mark for working the show. Our daughter Maya was there too, but she was pretty much glued to the Beak N Wings Bird Rescue Society's booth. We've talked about getting a bird for a long time, and so we adopted Apple, a friendly and cheerful gray Cockatiel. Maya's totally thrilled, and the Beak 'n' Wings people were incredibly helpful - I can't say enough good things about them.

And of course the biggest news: Joanie K. from Omaha was the winner of our Prize Drawing: 2 Modern Design Sage Green Guest Towels!

All in all it wasn't bad for a first event - and hopefully, the first of many.
