      Earth Day Inspiration

      Earth Day Inspiration

       Earth Day this year is April 22. 

      It’s a day to reflect on our personal practices, find ways to do better and to get outside, enjoy nature.   It’s also the perfect time to pick up some trash hidden by winter’s ice and snow.

      We’ve put together a bit of Earth Day inspiration for you.  We hope our list helps you feel connected and inspired by the work of others.

      Insta Influencers

      @randomactsofgreen, their mission is building a global climate action community to help folks feel empowered to take action. 

      @kittiekipper, I believe Kittie (don't actually know if that's her name) lives in (I think) Cornwall .  I might be short on life details but she collects crap from the beaches, mostly fishing line and ghost nets and turns them into incredible art.  She is inspiring and talented.

      Facebook Influencer

      "Ethically Kate" is a New Zealand influencer that shares her personal eco-journey.  She writes in a positive way about sustainable living and finding joy in our every day life.  It’s also fun to read about everyday life in new Zealand- imagine going to the beach and swimming most days!

      Podcast

      I love "Pre-loved Podcast" because I still have the day dream of being a fashion designer or at least a contestant on Project Runway.   I enjoy Emily’s  weekly interviews with a global twist.  The personal stories from England to Peru are a bit of travel and escape during these weird times and the focus of every podcast is getting away from fast fashion and embracing preloved clothing.

      A Few of our Favorite Products

       Vegan Dish Soap- bubbles and cleans without any plastic.  Very long lasting.

      Shampoo bars- as a former hair product junkie my switch to shampoo bars has eliminated not just plastic bottle clutter in my shower but plastic bottles in landfills.  It can take awhile to find the perfect bar for your hair but the search is worth it.

      Luffa sponges- made from the luffa plant these sponges are quite scrubby and when they get worn put 'em in your compost pile.  So much better than plastic based ones.

      Straw and Tin- I love to sip an iced coffee drink on a hot summer day and this straw is perfect.  It's wide so very easy to clean without any special tools.

      Celebrate International Women's Day

      Celebrate International Women's Day

      International women's Day is March 8th and the theme this year is      #choosetochallenge.  

      "A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.  We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world."

      Hands raised to celebrate International Women's Day

      "From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge."  The IWD website invites everyone to share a photo with your hand up high to show you are in.  More details on their website.

      It's a bit unclear about how IWD began but it's rooted in fighting oppression and inequality and possibly the garment industry.   One of my favorite quotes is from history.com-

      "Brooklyn, writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman (of “The Yellow Wall-paper” fame) told the congregation of the Parkside Church: “It is true that a woman’s duty is centered in her home and motherhood…[but] home should mean the whole country, and not be confined to three or four rooms or a city or a state.”  This rings so true this year with the inauguration Of VP Kamala Harris.

      I loved Emily Stochl's Pre-Loved Podcast: International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union. It's such an interesting slice of history and the campaign to get consumers to "look for the union label" needs to be reinvented into "shop small and indie".  

      We're celebrating IWD by the makeover of one of our favorite and nourishing cremes.  Meet "Everyone creme"- made for everyone and designed to be used everywhere.  Formerly our #resist creme the new label celebrates moving forward, taking care of ourselves so we can take care of others and our planet.

      We hope you take some time to celebrate all the accomplishments from the past, look towards the future ready to face challenges and of course taking care of yourself.
