Today’s questions come all of the way from Dancing Deer Baking Company, in Boston (my favorite city… too bad the interview wasn’t in person). The fabulous company featured me and my thoughts on Gracious Living in the spotlight post. In past interviews the questions have been etiquette specific, what I enjoyed most about the Dancing Deer questions is that they relate to my life and Gracious Living philosophy!
Take one look at their mission, views on the environment, and commitmet to community and you will know why they are my kind of company…
Dancing Deer Mission: We are a company of people who are passionate about food, nature, community and aesthetics. We are dedicated to excellence in all we do - sometimes we pull it off! Here’s what we consider most important, aside from making our shipping deadlines every day. We have a brought package of mission objectives but they all fall under one guiding principle, The Golden Rule. Here are some details of how we define that.
Dancing Deer on the Environment: To the extent possible we make choices in our packaging, production and facilities management, which are friendly to the environment. We print on 100% recycled paper with vegetable inks and use as little packaging as possible. We are constantly seeking new solutions to minimize materials use and find the greenest solutions. Please send us your ideas!
Dancing Deer in the Community: We try to give back from our modest successes in a variety of ways. Our main philanthropic efforts are devoted to helping homeless families through the Sweet Home Project We donate 35% of the retail price of all Sweet Home Gifts to fund scholarships for homeless mothers as a pathway out of poverty.
