mbellished Natural Nail Care & Spa, in South Bethlehem celebrated their first year provid- ing organic and natural nail care and products. The salon offers competitively priced manicure and pedicure services using natural products


E


to avoid several issues such as nail plate damage and serious fungal infections that artificial nails and harsh chemicals can cause. The salon is also serious about Eco-friendliness to keep chemicals from themselves and their clients. “Many women are enamored with artificial nails, states


owner Robin Ganchoso. “We wanted to get away from the ingredients in artificial nail products because we are applying to semi-permeable surfaces and your body is absorbing those chemicals. Some of the products used at artificial nail salons are not even approved by the FDA.” “After careful consideration, we decided to open a 100%


natural nail salon and we are doing fine without fake nails. To see the beauty of your own nail and not all that junk and bulk on it is quite gratifying to our customers. Stop damaging your nails and risking infections. Natural nails are in and we love it”


Location: 512 Broadway Bethlehem. Open Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call today at 610-419-0071 for an appoint- ment. See ad page 25.


Spring Cleaning in Green Meadow G


reen Meadow, a natural burial Ground at Fountain Hill Cem- etery is seeking volunteers for a fall clean-up event on Saturday, November 14 from 9 a.m. to noon. The first of its’ kind in the Lehigh Valley, Green Meadow’s goal is to create a beautiful


and respectful place to allow the body to degrade naturally and rejoin Earth’s elements, perpetuating the natural cycle of life and death. The burial process uses what remains of life to regenerate new life, to return dust to dust. Volunteers can meet the caretakers and staff and experience the site’s philosophy. Unlike traditional cemeteries, Green Meadow prohibits


practices that prevent natural reunion with the earth, including burial vaults, metal caskets and chemical embalming. Upright headstones are not permitted; however, ground level fieldstone and other natural native rock markers are allowed. Maintenance of the grounds at Green Meadow also differs from


traditional cemeteries. The meadow is planted with native Pennsyl- vania wildflowers eliminating the need for lawn care and creating a peaceful, contiguous native wildflower landscape. The Fall cleanup will include cutting back wildflowers and planting bulbs.


Fountain Hill Cemetery is non-denominational and non-profit. Located at 1121 Graham Street, Bethlehem. For more informa- tion, contact Ed Vogrins at 610-868-4840. See ad page 53.
