These days the terms Mothering Sunday and Mother’s Day have become so interchangeable you would think one is a synonym for the other. But, in fact, that’s not so. Our British Mothering Sunday grew from a different place to the American Mother’s Day. So this blog takes a look at the origins of Mothering Sunday – and the difference between it and Mother’s Day. The latter always takes place on the second Sunday in May and I’ll come back to it later.
Christmas is approaching and with it our thoughts are full of giving. Now, I’m in the business of making and selling organic skincare products. Thus, I’ll not pretend that you engaging in that sort of giving is of no importance to me. It’s my livelihood – so of course it is. But what I most want to delve into a little in this blog are the benefits of giving and caring in the wider sense. Because, as with a puppy, giving and caring is for life – not only at Christmas.

Crucial to any business, big or small, is keeping the customer satisfied. And I’ll admit that, achieving customer satisfaction is easier for Pink&Green as a moderate sized business, than it is for a ginormous multi-national. But that doesn’t mean we don’t work at it.
As Mike Kappel writes in this 2017 article, being small lets you reach people on a deeper personal level than big businesses. And that in turn, turns into stronger customer relationships – something that Pink&Green has worked hard to foster.
21 June 2020 The Choices That We Make How are you feeling as we begin to emerge from the Covid induced lockdown period? In recent blogs we’ve chatted about finding a new normal in the wake of Coronavirus and the … Continued
In one of our recent blogs, A New Normal, we examined the idea of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic bringing with it opportunities along with the losses. Opportunities to examine our old normal for practices we want to keep and those we want to discard, as we move into the post-Covid new normal.
