Q & A Series: People, Products and The Health of Our Planet- Toockies – Hand-made Housewares

This Q & A is with Anna Marie Stauss CEO/President of Sinko Corporation – started production of housewares in India the spring of 2008

Great discount offer on Toockies products at the end of this post till 12/31/13.

Question #1: Tell me briefly about yourself and why you decided to get involved in the “health” industry?

I’m not in the health business, per se, but I am in the business of finding full circle sustainable products to bring into your home and to use on your skin. I strongly believe fibers created artifically have an artificial affect to any solution it was intended for.

Question #2: If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed to take only 5 items with you (they can be food, books or specific products that are all health-related), what would they be and why?

I would take stones that can be struck to create fire. I would take coconut oil for hydration, lubrication and cooking. I would take a Toockies Scrub cloths that is multifunctional to be used as a grip for pulling, pushing or scrubbing anything as well as to hold hot items because they last for such a long time, will protect hands and feet and have so many uses. Disinfectant liquids like Iodine and bandages. Water purification unit for drinking water.

Question #3: What one message do you want to share with the people of this world that is crucial for their ultimate well-being and longevity?

Happiness that comes from simple Joy is a state of mind you can always choose. Find something to laugh about everyday and when you can’t, remember to smile because that is how you choose.

lQuestions #4: If someone could afford to purchase only one product at this moment to start their journey towards better health (food or health-related), what would you recommend and why?

The Magic Bullet blender that creates smoothies out of fresh fruit and vegetables. I’m recommending this type of product because having a spinach and fruit smoothie in the morning has been great for me.

Question #5: Tell me more about your business/company and/or products you offer to the public to help them achieve optimal health and well-being?

Our products are all vintage design hand made housewares, created from 100% organic Cotton or Jute. The benefit of having chemical and synthetic free products in your home that you use on a daily basis to shower, clean, cook and serve food with go well beyond the fact that they are practical, afforable, convenient, reusable, and reliable. Toockies products were made to last and to protect you and our planet from the alternatives while providing a Fair Trade living wage to women who would otherwise have none.

Question #6: What are your hopes/aspirations/dreams for the future health of the people and the planet?

My greatest hope for our health and the health of this planet is that we all find a way to consume less or at least produce less waste.

Question #7: Who is your greatest hero and why?
Mother Teresa is my greatest hero because she listened and acted on her hearts desire.

Question #8: Is there anything else you would like to share with the public?

We are a woman owned company and I would like to add a link to the artisan page on our web site. I want to provide a voice for the women we work with.
