Ruby Pinwheels, an online children’s store dedicated to bettering the world by selling 100% organic children’s clothing and organic/all-natural skincare items, has announced that organic mom and award-winning actress, Alysia Reiner, will join the Ruby Pinwheels team as a product endorser and celeb spokesperson.
Alysia embraces an organic lifestyle, and has for many years. “When I was ready to get pregnant, I took to making our home for the baby as 100% natural & organic as possible. David and I have learned so much about the toxins and chemicals of our world, much of it very scary, and how they affect our health. An organic home is a choice for the environment, global impact, and our personal health.”
Reiner’s recent films include “The Vicious Kind” (Sundance 2009, Executive Producer Neil LaBute), “Arranged”, “Schooled”, “One Last Thing” and “Sideways” (as Christine, Jack’s fiancée – SAG award winner for outstanding performance – ensemble cast). “The Vicious Kind” was just nominated for two independent Spirit Awards.
TV experience includes the recurring role of Cindy on “The Starter Wife”, and guest spots on “30 Rock”, “White Collar”, “The Sopranos”, “Law & Order”, “Law & Order: SVU”, “Law & Order: CI”, “Love Monkey”, “The Jury”, “The Drew Cary Show”, “The Practice”, “Family Law”, and “Jack & Jill”.
Alysia’s current project is “Speed Grieving”, a short film she made after the sudden loss of her young, vibrant, charismatic father to cancer. Reiner chose to honor him by following his mantra “make a difference, have fun!” She states, “I made the film to help people through the confusing and overwhelming grief process. It’s a surreal fantasy so it’s not just a tear-jerker, and we have received incredible response from audiences. We are on the festival circuit now, with four coming up in the next couple of months, and then it will be coupled with a grief guide to be used as a grief counseling tool in hospitals, hospices and medical schools. I’m so excited to make art that helps people heal.”
Ruby Pinwheels carries 29 organic and all natural brands, including skincare items. They look forward to having Alysia and her daughter Livia as part of the team. Alysia says, “I love that Ruby Pinwheel’s mission statement is about health, environmental, fair trade benefits, community and giving back. But best of all, it is about JOY and finding a way to be a mom and serve the world in a way that builds esteem and is very valuable.”
