Never has there been more motivation to make use of those patios, front door steps, and backyards – however small. Throw a couple of tomato seeds in some soil. Even if you get only a couple of tomatoes in the summer, the joy of seeing things grow and becoming that much closer to living a self-sustaining life will help our planet thrive.
Here’s to all you folks who live alone and work alone during the lockdown - we’re certainly learning to appreciate the small things we take for granted in normal everyday life. Contact with others? That beats those new shiny shoes.
Plastic is both remarkably cheap and incredibly useful. But manufacturers have been tasked with finding reusable or compostable alternatives to just about everything we've come to rely on. Perhaps when our current plastic pegs break or wear out, we can try sustainable wood or bamboo pegs? I found pegs that are a sustainable alternative to plastic pegs, because the bamboo is biodegradable and the stainless steel springs don't add rust to your clothes.

That's ok - you're only human! But is it possible to still have a good skincare routine, yet look after the world around you? We think so, as long as we use less one-time-use plastic and environmentally unfriendly products, and make better choices. Particularly with city living, our skin produces a lot of oil and sebum if we're stressed, hormonal or just in a hot and polluted environment. That's why we're selling these paper-based oil reducing wipes for when you're on the go. We find they give a great matte look and create confidence.
