Off to the Emmy Awards

The mother and daughter team of Kiley Routley and Kath Raeber of Back to Earth Enviro Products are off to the Emmys on Friday for the big event on Sunday, Sept. 18.

They will be representing the business with a table filled with their products and all of the Emmy nominees will be receiving Weeds & Seeds, Kisameet Clay Bar and Pain Be Gone in their swag bags.

"It is very exciting to know that stars will be experiencing a taste of the beautiful sunny Okanagan." said Joni Anderson of Back to Earth.

Anderson said they will be taking 200 bags loaded with the three products which will be given to some of the biggest stars on the planet.

"This little Okanagan company's products will be going to some pretty snazzy people." said Anderson.

Earlier this year they were invited to both the Oscars and MTV Awards, but were already committed to attend the Premier's Excellence Awards in Vancouver where they placed as one of the top five businesses in the province.

When the invitation for the Emmys came this year, every effort was made to make it happen.
