THE TRUE COST to be screened by Marafiki at Library October 4

| No Comments

Marafiki Fair Trade is proud to present The True Cost - a feature length documentary film that explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet. It's a story about clothing, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? 

Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world's leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.  If you are interested in fashion, social justice and/or the environment, this film is for you.

The movie will be screened at the Metuchen Public Library on Sunday October 4, 2015 at 2pm.  The Library is located at 480 Middlesex Avenue, Metuchen, NJ.  Tickets are limited and available at Marafiki Fair Trade, 20 New Street, Metuchen, NJ. The suggested donation is $3 per ticket or 2 for $5, because you should really bring a friend!

Special Cooking Demos at Farmers Market TODAY

Please join Chef Brett Smith of Metuchen-based Novitá Bistro & Lounge and Metuchen Farmers Market's Christine von der Linn of "Vegging Out with Christine" for "Make Your Own Vinaigrette," an interactive culinary event.

Why make your own vinaigrette? Read the labels. Bottled salad dressing, while convenient, can be expensive and is often full of salt, sugar, trans fats and chemical additives. Making your own is simple, less expensive and healthier - especially if farm fresh, health-promoting ingredients are used.

Smith and von der Linn will provide recipes, hands-on help and advice with making vinaigrettes, as well as meat marinades and pickle brines, using seasonal, fresh ingredients provided by Metuchen Farmers Market Farmers.

The first 48 participants will be able to take home their creations in a branded glass container.

On Monday, Sept 28 at 7:30pm., Dr. Michael Catalanello and Dr. Margaret Head of Comprehensive Health Physical Rehab and Chiropractic Center of Metuchen will present a FREE seminar given by Doctors of Chiropractic and Physical Therapy. Let us help you safely and effectively achieve good health and optimal weight!

Exercising but not losing weight?

Dieting and not seeing any results?

Suffering from achy joints or chronic neck and back pain?

If you are asking yourself any of these questions then we have answers

for you!

You are not alone. Statistics show that most people struggle with exercise and nutrition on their own. Only about 20% of people sustain long term weight loss successfully, 95% of diets fail, 92% of people are unable to achieve their fitness resolutions each year, and more than 60% of gym-goers cannot maintain their workout plan for more than 3 months. Diet, exercise, and proper nutrition are not always a one size-fits-all formula. Each person has their own individual requirements based on several different factors including size and gender, genetics, vitamin needs, medical history and more.
