Plant a Tree… For Tomorrow
“A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.” D. Elton Trueblood
At our new home, my husband and I recently planted two young trees. One is a Flowering Crab apple placed to the east of the patio, the other, a Sawtooth Oak placed to the south of our house. When we stopped in at the nursery, we examined the trees that were available, taking into consideration the planting location, the growth characteristics and the full height of the mature tree. After a bit of
arguing discussion, we settled on those two species, confident that we had made the best choice. Then we looked at each other and laughed… we’ll most likely not be the ones who enjoy the full-blown mature shade of these trees. But we do it anyway, because we know that what we do now isn’t just for us–for the here and now– but for the enjoyment and good of those who will live here after we are gone.
J.R.LIGGETT’S embraces this philosophy–this idea of we do what is right for the world now— because of the repercussions that will play out in the future. His all-natural shampoo bar made with healthy, formula-specific vegetable-based oils, pure, clean, clear New Hampshire spring water, no animal by-products, no animal testing, no preservatives, and no strange, unpronounceable chemicals. 100% bio-degradable, it simply will not harm the fish in the streams, and even the bar wrapper is 100% plant-based bio-degradable. No waste with this bar… no liquid to run down the drain, no liquid to spill, and no plastic bottle to add to the landfill. The shampoo works into a luxurious lather, yet rinses out clean and easily… uses less of the earth’s precious water! Your hair is fresh and clean with body and manageability. Made in the USA, all for you– but at the same time, for the future. J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar is the “shade tree” that’s planted now, with tomorrow in mind.
And just like our current United States Olympians, J.R. has applied hard work, dedication, technique, strategy and focus, resulting in a great product that we all can partake of and be in the presence of something bigger than ourselves. Together, we can win this… together, we can come out on top of the game.
Join in with J.R.LIGGETT’S to make a difference for the future–for the world!
