We are proud to be at Wild by Nature in Eastern Long Island and were lucky enough to get an article written by the NY Healthy Food Examiner.  It is going to be a great summer when we can grab our BAO FRESH KOMBUCHA on the way to the Hamptons.



Movie star, icon, activist, lover, fighter, bad ass legend…Liz Taylor.  "I call upon you to draw from the depths of your being — to prove that we are a human race, to prove that our love outweighs our need to hate, that our compassion is more compelling than our need to blame." 
— Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011

In celebration of International Women's Day on March 8th, 2011 and the badassness of women everywhere, we are excited to recognize Gloria Steinem as a BAO Bad Ass Legend. She has never wearied in her fight to breakdown stereotypes and for forty years her efforts have been the cornerstone of the women’s movement. If that isn’t enough, as a writer, editor, and lecturer, she coined many a bad ass phrase like, “a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.”

Imagine taking a stance against conventional thinking in the world’s of science and technology and pioneering a movement whose principles are still thought revolutionary fifty years later.  That is what Sir Albert Howard did.  Considered the founder of the organic farming movement, Sir Albert is a true BAO Bad Ass Legend.

Recycling is bad ass.  Working everyday to improve recycling in schools is the stuff of a BAO Bad Ass Legend.  Robbie Lock is running New York City’s Public Schools Recycling Champions Program, working to establish model recycling programs at our public schools.  Very cool.  We hope you make a big difference.

Orchestrating a historic peaceful protest, in the face of potentially violent opposition, that successfully ends 30 years of autocratic rule is truly bad ass.  The way ahead is not always clear, but we can effect change if we work together.  Way to go Egyptian Protestors for setting a legendary example for others to follow.

As a successful recording artist, athlete and actor who became noted for his political activism in the civil rights movement at the height of his career, Paul Robeson is a true bad ass. Despite being under heavy CIA and FBI surveillance, publicly condemned for his beliefs and blacklisted during the Cold War, he never compromised on fighting for the civil liberties of the African American community. A Paul Robeson tribute concert being held as part of Black History Month next Wednesday at 7 p.m., at the Winter Garden, World Financial Center.

In our closest voting ever (this is actually our first vote ever, but it was close), Jon Stewart proved his badassness over the other four nominees to be chosen as the first Bad Ass Legend of 2011. More importantly, we had so many bad ass fans participating in our effort to kick-off 2011 with a focus on living better. We also gave out some cool prizes to our lucky winners. If you did not collect any of the BAO gear or free kombucha, remember that everyone wins if we can all commit to living a healthy, passionate and balanced life (i.e., being a bad ass).
