a year of MMT
TO OUR AMAZING CUSTOMERS,
We hope this New Year finds you well and happy! 2013 was an amazing year for Meow Meow Tweet, and we thank you for contributing to that. 2014 brings some exciting new things that will be unveiled in the coming months, stay tuned or join or mailing list for more on that!
In the interest of transparency, we’d like to share the following.
In 2013 our ingredients costs and overhead went up significantly as a result of our growth and changes in the raw material marketplace. As a result, we must raise our prices to accurately reflect the cost of our production. As you know, we are committed to crafting each of our products by hand in Brooklyn (our home), sourcing as many US materials as possible, and using 100% natural, primarily certified organic ingredients. For these reasons, our price points are higher than brands (large and small) that make compromises, but you’ll see that our prices still remain competitive with those who are producing and setting a new standard for quality and ethical products.
The most noticeable change in pricing is with our bar soap. Each bar is now $10. We still offer a discount if you buy three bars AND we are now offering free domestic shipping on orders of $25 or more.
We can’t say enough thank you’s for your continued support! We seriously have the best customers ever!
Happy New Year!

It's been 75 years since President Roosevelt enacted the executive order which allowed the U.S. military to exclude any and all persons from an area after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Although no single racial or ethnic group was mentioned in the order, hundreds of thousands of Japanese-Americans were forced out of their homes and moved into camps.
I recently interviewed my grandfather about what life was like as a Japanese-American post World War II. I hoped to gain insight into a part of my heritage which I’ll never experience first hand but am saddened by. It's impossible not to see parallels being drawn between the recent travel ban and past U.S. anti-Asian policies. I can't help but feel anxiety for how the current administration seems to be playing to the fears of a bigoted populism and what can be done to counter it.
Not just your potato’s best friend, this fresh and woody herb promotes hair growth and stimulates blood circulation. The fragrant oils in the rosemary leaf also dissolve excess and clogging sebum in hair follicles to balance oil production without over-drying. Make your own herbal tea hair rinse with fresh rosemary or apply hair oil with the essential oil.
