Greenie Speed Dating Event Hosted by OC Green Market Saturday, February 11 at Irvine Valley College

OC Green Market, a division of Healthy Bargains, LLC, has announced it will host a Greenie Speed Dating event on Saturday, February 11, two days before Valentine’s Day, from 12-2 pm at Irvine Valley College. Each participant will meet 7 men or women with each conversation lasting 5 minutes. After the event participants will receive their matches through email.

“This is a great event to meet other people that care about the environment, work in the environmental field or live a green lifestyle like you do. And because it’s held outdoors in the middle of the day, the atmosphere is more casual than an evening event and you don’t have to get all dressed up! says organizer Rana Sabeh.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at http://ocgreenmarketdating-auto.eventbrite.com/.

Green Saturdays @ OC Green Market is open once a month every Second Saturday from 9am – 2pm at Irvine Valley College. OC Green Market is the first of its kind in Orange County, CA to exclusively feature unique eco-friendly merchants. Having launched November 2011, it’s still small and growing and soon will offer a ‘one-stop shop’ of green products and services, holistic/alternative therapies and educational nonprofits.

Classes began January 14 and will continue monthly (except February) at every market date. Topics will be diverse but focused within green and healthy living. Fitness classes such as Yoga and Zumba will be added as well.

“I want to pull in people who don’t know about living green and educate them to see how it can fit into their lifestyle,” said Rana Sabeh, creator of OC Green Market.

“It’s an opportunity for them to understand that it’s a win-win for their health, families and for the environment, as well.”

The Shocking Truth About Traditional Flea Treatments

Products intended to treat cats and dogs for fleas and ticks kill hundreds of pets each year and injure tens of thousands, said the Environmental Protection Agency in a March 2010 statement. In a now famous ABC News report released in 2008, traditional spot drop flea and tick medicines were found to cause more than 44,000 severe reactions, including seizures and 1,200 deaths.

There is no such thing as chemical flea “prevention” on an animal. Fleas are killed when they bite pets for a blood meal. They die from the toxins systemically wicked into and carried in the animal’s bloodstream.

Due to widespread controversy over traditional flea and tick control methods, cedar oil insecticides have gained increasing popularity and respect in the veterinary and organic farming communities. In 2006, at the request of the U.S. Army, a team of world renowned organic scientists expanded upon traditional cedar oil formulations by introducing a quartz rock carrier to deliver a lethal dose of substance at the microscopic level. This nano-sized delivery system closes the breathing pores of pheromone driven insects on contact and creates a lasting barrier that discourages new insects from latching onto treated animals.

At the forefront of the cedar oil movement is a company based in the heart of Texas and marketed at Bugshateit.com. Their product is endorsed by Animal Wellness Magazine and recognized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as the number one biological insect control formula, proven superior to chemical counterparts. The formula is strong enough to battle crop pests on commercial farms yet safe enough to treat neighborhood yards for mosquitoes and venomous snakes. Last year alone, one of the most prominent pest control companies in the United States ordered 5,000 gallons of the product.
