The women of Ancient Greece created eye shadow by mixing ground charcoal with olive oil.

Go Greek: Grow Your Own Olive Tree

Thought the Greek life was just for crazy college kids?  Join in on the fun and get a VeriFlora eco-friendly miniature olive tree.  The VeriFlora “Certified Sustainably Grown” label guarantees that flowers and potted plants have been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. This means water is not wasted, product packaging is minimized, and pests are controlled with the least environmental impact. Greenista Girl Shubhra wanted to remember her trip to Greece so she got one of her very own olive trees. Simply water daily and watch flowers bloom in spring that will lead to olives in the fall.  So next time you make a martini, garnish it with your own home grown olive. Opa!
