This #earthday2018 post is a little late but it’s no less heartfelt. We know that running a business isn’t always compatible with looking after our planet. But we’re trying hard to make sure our actions don’t cause harm - whether it’s the way we work with our makers, the utilities suppliers we use in our (home) office or the way we send out our orders. This picture is of our compostable packaging - complete with unbleached recycled tissue, food grade biodegradable stickers, natural jute twine and garden flowers. Our intention is to show makers that their products are worth this effort, customers that each and every order is special and Mother Earth that we love her. We’re working on ways to improve/lesson our footprint especially when it comes to printing and dye. Any suggestions?
'We take and we take but we do not give back, ⠀ Leading our world down a devastating track, ⠀ We watch as our natural resources deplete, ⠀ While we shop till we drop for things we don't really need, ⠀ Putting pressure on supply chains and making them sweat, ⠀ While we cuddle up on our sofas surfing the net, ⠀ Demanding more and more and wanting it faster, ⠀ We are driving our world into a mass consumption disaster' ⠀ ⠀ ∼ R o s a n n a H o p k i n s ∼ ⠀ A beautiful reminder to be gentle and kind to our earth. Happy #earthday. ⠀ ⠀ *From the @fash_rev #fanzine#lovedclotheslast ⠀
Happy Earth Day! I was happy to attend the Sustainable Fashion Forum yesterday in Portland. People from all over the fashion industry and beyond gathered to focus on this topic, thanks to @laptopsandsmalltalk who organized the event. I'm a proud member of this thoughtful community, and I'm so happy that the conversation is happening. It's a good time to be thinking about our Earth and what you can learn about or commit to in order to be a positive force for all. 🌎 Fashion Revolution week starts tomorrow, it's April 23-29, and in May I'll be co-hosting the @slowfashionchallenge on Instagram, so there are fun opportunities to to learn from and join. I'll be sharing lots of info about Sustainable Fashion in the coming days. It's not just for fashionistas! Even simple acts like choosing well made garments that last a long time or repairing your favorite pieces instead of throwing them away can make a difference. Enjoy the day! 🌎

When the problem seems too big, too political, too complex, it's easy to believe a narrative that our individual choices are insignificant in effecting change. But research suggests otherwise. We know that when people do something good for the environment, they don't do less other good things in the world. In fact, when someone becomes committed to a certain behavior, they are more likely to follow through in other areas as well. There are a number of psychological phenomena that suggest that we actually induce MORE support for behavior change than we think. Small individual steps CAN actually contribute to support for political and governmental change. It starts with us. 🌎#earthday2018 . . . #reposted 📷 by @ivywildlondon
