When I first started my sustainability journey, Soko was the first ethical and sustainable jewelry company to follow my blog, and I instantly fell in love with their values. @shopsoko does so much good by producing jewelry using only locally sourced, up-cycled materials such as brass (fun fact: 90% of the world's brass is recycled)....

Loving my @copperh2o water bottle! (Read my prior post about the Ayurvedic and environmental benefits of using copper)!

The use of plastic bottles... Continue Reading →

Still looking for the perfect Father's Day gift? Check out what @houseofmarley has to offer! Sustainable headphones, turn tables, speakers, and more? Music to my ears 😎🎧

Their fibers are used by companies such as @prana, @adidas, @timberland, @ford, & @patagonia! This #worldoceansday, make it your goal to switch out plastic... Continue Reading →

Coconut is one of nature's blessings! It is SO versatile, delicious, and has so many benefits when consumed (a post dedicated to coconut oil to come later)! This fruit/nut/seed is known as "Tree of Life" because every bit of it can be used. Fun fact: when intra-venous (IV) solution was in short supply, doctors during... Continue Reading →

Anyone in New York this three day weekend? Check out @packagefreeshop, a one stop shop for sustainable, basic necessities. The co-owners Daniel and Lauren lead zero-waste lives, so nothing they use ends up in a landfill!
