Beat May Showers with These Sustainable Rain Boots

Who doesn’t love looking fashionable in the rain and giving back at the same time? It is kind of difficult to have a happy mood and dress up in raining days, but with the right fashion items, you can look nice and feel very comfortable.

After nine years in business, ROMA Boots’ mission to merge fashion with philanthropy has totaled $2,953,186 worth of boots donated to children across the globe. For every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. ROMA Boots even launched a new line of Men’s Rain Boots this January, so now the entire family can wear a pair of rain boots in contribution to a great cause.

With passion at the core, founder and CEO Samuel Bistrian has come full circle in his mission of being an entrepreneur and successful business owner. Through mistakes, loss, and setbacks, Bistrian reveals the not so glamorous truth to how he put love back into ROMA.

On April 3, 2010, despite being in the middle of an economic recession, Samuel Bistrian started ROMA Boots, the company that merges fashion with philanthropy to ‘Give Poverty the Boot.’ After spending years working at Neiman Marcus, Bistrian developed a passion for quality and customer service and wanted to take that a step further by giving back to people in need. Growing up extremely poor, he realized how big the impact of rain boots are in a child’s life in poverty-stricken countries and from that, his business model was created.

“I never considered myself a businessman or even an entrepreneur. Even when I wanted to leave Neiman Marcus to start ROMA, some of my superiors told me that it was a poor decision, and to some degree they were right. I did not have much of a plan as the country was in a recession. I had $5,000 in my bank account, significant credit card debt and student loans, but over all of that, I had passion,” explained Samuel Bistrian, Founder and CEO of ROMA Boots.

With the mission of bringing impoverished children throughout the world hope, love, and lasting change through aid and education, for every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. ROMA’s ultimate goal is not only to provide aid but to educate. By doing so ROMA is empowering impoverished children around the world to break out of the cycle of poverty and contribute their gifts and talents to society.

“Having grown up so poor, ‘Giving poverty the boot’ was everything I always wanted to do, to help those less fortunate just like someone once helped me. But I knew from the start that without love as the foundation, all of my good intentions will result in disappointment,” told Bistrian.

After the first few years of launching, ROMA was a success but he wanted to expand. Finding the solution that any logical businessman would, he borrowed money and took on investors. While things seemed to be off without a hitch, there were downsides that came from this.

“All the pressures of growing a business can cause one to lose their purpose and you no longer have that same passion to help those in poverty when you can’t pay your own bills and you have partners putting enormous pressure on you,” Bistrian expressed.

It took a family crisis to put things back in perspective to help him rediscover his purpose; helping those who can’t help themselves. Hitting rock bottom was the motivator for Bistrian to take back the company that was once all his. Over the course of 9 months, he was able to buy out his investors and today, Samuel Bistrian is returning to his roots as the sole owner of ROMA Boots, running a successful business, giving back and doing what he loves.

After nine years, ROMA is ‘America’s Favorite Rain Boot’ and doing better than ever by giving poverty the boot with joy and love. ROMA Boots is easily on its way to becoming ‘World’s Favorite Rain Boot’ with countless practical, yet fashionable rain boots for women and kids.

For the first time ever, ROMA now offers a new, men rain boot line, which just launched January 2019, creating rain boot options for the whole family.

ROMA Boots can be a great gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, even for birthdays. They come with very nice package with a love to the world and kindness.

ROMA Boots can be found at boutiques across the U.S., Canada, and Australia. They are also available online at romaboots.com and Amazon. To learn more about ROMA Boots and how you can make a difference in a child’s life, visit romaboots.com or romafoundation.com. Find them at boutiques across the U.S., Canada, and Australia. They are also available online at romaboots.com or Amazon. You can enjoy shopping at ROMA with the promo code ROMA25 for 25% of anything at romaboots.com.

5 Seed Butter – Award Winning Seed Butter

I believe almost all the people love the taste of peanut butter. But a lot of people can’t have it because of the peanut allergy. That sounds sad for a lovely breakfast when the other people enjoy their peanut butter spread.

Don’t worry any more, you have 5 Seed Butter now – a high nutritious good replacement!

5 Seed Butter is an allergy friendly peanut butter alternative made from chia, flax, pumpkin, hemp, and sunflower seeds. The butters are free from the top allergens including peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and sesame. 5 Seed Butter won the sofi Award for Best New Product in the Nut Butter and Seed Butter Category at the 2018 Fancy Food Show. 5 Seed Butter also boasts 8g of protein and only 5g of carbs.

  • GREAT FLAVOR AND SUPERIOR NUTRITION: 5 Seed Butter is delicious— it never sacrifices on taste. It is packed with 8 g of protein and contains only 5 carbs. The butter is non-gmo, gluten free, keto, vegan, and allergy friendly. Chia, flax, and hemp all add nutritious Omega 3’s, antioxidants, and fiber.
  • ALLERGY FRIENDLY: 5 Seed Butter is manufactured in a facility free from the top 8 allergens and contains absolutely no peanuts, tree nuts, or soy! 5 Seed Butter is a great safe option for offices, schools, or any other public place where allergens might be an issue.

  • SUPERCHARGED INGREDIENTS: 5 Seed Butter’s ingredients are simple—seeds, brown cane sugar, salt, natural flavors, and natural vitamin e. Sunflower seeds create a wonderful base butter while chia, flax, hemp, and pumpkin seeds add a nutritious superfood punch and lend to a luscious creamy texture.
  • ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY: It takes about 85% less water to make a jar of 5 Seed Butter than a jar of almond butter!

Beyond the Equator began on the lush farmlands of South America as a superfood growing operation specializing in chia, quinoa, and beans. Unsatisfied with the prevalence of superfoods in the American diet. The company began creating products with superfoods as the focal ingredient.

Beyond the Equator’s mission is to bring superfoods to consumers by integrating them into everyday products without sacrificing on flavor. The company develops products safe for everyone to eat by using clean ingredients that are free from today’s top allergens.

A clinically proven and dermatologist-recommended dietary supplement

Free radicals are everywhere. We are exposed to free radicals every day. Alcohol, tobacco, chemicals, and sun radiation are all common ways we are exposed. Antioxidants can help. Providing free radicals with antioxidants to replace their missing electrons helps stop the damaging oxidation chain reaction. Foods high in antioxidants and dietary supplements like Heliocare, feature powerful antioxidant properties that help maintain the skin’s ability to protect itself from the harmful effects of free radicals.

Heliocare Daily Antioxidant Formula contains an antioxidant called Polypodium leucotomos (PLE), which aids in eliminating free radicals and their harsh effects on your body.* Reducing free radicals can help with “beauty fatigue” as well, as it helps to maintain younger-looking, more resilient skin.* Only the PLE extract in Heliocare, which has been studied for over 25 years, has been extensively tested by leading American and international dermatologists.

Heliocare is a simple, one-a-day dietary supplement made with Fernblock® Polypodium leucotomos extract (PLE). This natural extract is packed with antioxidant properties that help maintain your skin’s ability to protect itself against the aging effects of free radicals.*

Heliocare’s improved capsules are now:
•  Vegan  •  Gluten-Free  •  Free of Artificial Dyes

But how does a capsule help your skin protect itself? The unique Polypodium leucotomos fern (native to Central and South America) has developed its own protections against harmful free radicals in the environment. For centuries, the unique traits of this natural fern have been used to treat many skin-related conditions and promote skin resilience and youthful appearance. Now it’s your turn.

Help your skin protect itself from the aging effects of free radicals.*
