According to the JL Haber, Vice President of Programming of Modern Living with kathy ireland®, “In recent years, people have become increasingly concerned about where the goods they buy come from and the impact of these goods on the local economy and the environment. When we heard about the work of The Green Seahorse to bring high quality goods from local artists around the world to local customers to encourage fair trade and sustainable practices, we knew immediately we wanted them on the show.”
Our mission at The Green Seahorse is to support the fair trade efforts and do our part to insure the sustainability of the global artisan community. We are proud to be a part of a movement where customers have the benefit of purchasing items that support families at the same time demonstrating the innovative creativity and beauty of crafts-people from a wide variety of cultures in numerous countries. Fairly-Traded products are made using local, sustainably harvested materials, minimizing the environmental impact of these purchases.
Lisa has noticed a trend in the global craft marketplace, “Being green has influenced a huge uprising in all manner of makers making. That has inspired our artisan marketplace, where we showcase a variety of innovations in eco-art and culture.”

Lisa was originally contacted by Modern Living with kathy ireland® by way of a press release that was put out about the company launch at the Green Festival, November of 2014. The Producers had a very appealing interest in the brand and the mission behind it, as well as the entrepreneurial story of Lisa herself. The Green Seahorse immediately felt privileged that Kathy Ireland and her studio saw value and creativity in our young business.
The studio experience in LA was unforgettable and all our needs were taken care of. It was a true pleasure meeting Kathy, she is very genuine and seems to really care about the people she meets. The crew helped make my 11, year old daughter and I feel very comfortable on the set, and me during the taping of the show. We were provided with opportunities to re-edit our segment and utilize the resources that were available to us during the process, such as gathering leads from the show and compiling them for us..
We were pleased about the positive results from the recording sessions both in San Francisco, at the Green Festival and LA. The final production video exceeded our expectations with how well it was put together. Overall, the MMP (USA), Inc. provided us with an incredible project that i am sure will help grow our brand. We are grateful for being offered the opportunity.
