Last week I headed out to Seattle & Portland to celebrate Sustain’s in-store launch at a couple of our retailers. Although the trip was filled with store visits and meetings with local press, I found time to explore these two incredible cities and totally fell in love with the Pacific Northwest.

Shortly after landing in Seattle, I headed over to Fred Meyer to check out our product on-shelf!

Pike Place Market

We stayed at the Inn at the Market, conveniently located right in the heart of Pike Place Market. Every morning, we got to walk around and visit the local Seattle food vendors.

On day 2, we all piled in the car for a morning of store visits which included Pharmaca, PCC Natural Markets and Fred Meyer!


Before our Seattle launch party on day 3, I found a couple minutes to visit what became my favorite store in Seattle, Totokaelo. The store is an incredible mix of well-known and upcoming designers, and they have one of the most impressive shoe collections I’ve ever seen.

Portland Ace Hotel

Next Stop: The Ace Hotel in Portland. It rained the entire time, but the food made up for it.

Maurice Portland

Shortly after arriving we headed to Maurice for coffee and pastries.

Tiny Zebra

The rain didn’t stop us from visiting our Portland retailers Fred Meyer and Green Zebra!


By far the best meal of the trip was the Bibimbap at Tasty n Alder.

Cock rocket donut

Voodoo Doughnuts made us a cock rocket doughnut for our launch event at the Ace Hotel… It was a pretty special way to end our trip.

Until next time…
