Saginaw woman now selling her natural hair, skincare products locally and at Meijer in Detroit
SAGINAW, MI — When Bria Brooks of Saginaw first started making natural hair and skincare products it was for her infant daughter who had eczema and then her family. But it wasn’t long before her products could be found on store shelves locally and in Detroit. Now, her products are sold throughout Saginaw at Salon 2000, Heritage Natural Foods and Asia’s Wigs & Apparel at SVRC Marketplace, and at Meijer Rivertown Market, a small-format Meijer store on Jefferson Avenue in downtown Detroit. “Zillions & Co. is a Black business in Saginaw, but it’s not exclusive to any one group of people,” she said. “Skin is skin.mlive.com
A gun was stolen from a small shop in Wisconsin. Officials have linked it to 27 shootings in Chicago.
“Guns, they don’t grow on trees,” said Cassandra Crifasi, deputy director of the Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy at Johns Hopkins University. “They start somewhere and they are exceptionally durable products and they can last a very, very long time. It is so important that we are doing everything we can to make sure guns are not falling into the hands of people we know shouldn’t have them. This gun is evidence of all the havoc that can be wreaked with just one.”chicagotribune.com
Veggie burgers are still burgers, at least in Europe
European lawmakers rejected Friday proposals that could have prevented plant-based products without meat from being labeled sausages or burgers. Following the votes on agricultural products at the European Parliament, the so-called veggie burgers, soy steaks and vegan sausages can continue to be sold as such in restaurants and shops across the union. (AP Photo/Francisco Seco)BRUSSELS – It’s a meaty issue but the EU has taken a stance: veggie burgers are in fact burgers. European lawmakers said Friday that plant-based products that do not contain meat, including veggie burgers, soy steaks and vegan sausages, can continue to be sold as such in restaurants and shops across the European Union's 27 countries. Losing the ability to use the terms steak or sausage might make those plant-based products more obscure for consumers.
