Continued education seems to be the theme this weekend. ✨
Today I attended a panel on ethically made brands owned by women.
As an online boutique of a collection of sustainably made products, I wanted to hear from other women who have the same passion as I do.
I came home wanting to learn more. So I read up on sustainability, a word that is loosely used and claimed by a lot of brands.
Did you know “the fashion industry is the second largest cause of pollution worldwide and that the fundamental cause of unsustainability is exponential growth and consumption.”
Choose wisely folks!
There are many factors when considering the sustainability of a material. The renewability and source of a fiber, the process of how a raw fiber is turned into a textile, the working conditions of the people producing the materials, and the material's total carbon footprint.
Shop smart! 💕
Thank you @galeriela for hosting then event and to the panelist @thehfscollective @thisisvele @fathersdaughterla @echoandair
I’ve had this small awkward dresser since I was a child. I’ve stored everything from toys to socks to games and even chicken supplies lol. Now it will be the wine bar (still a work in progress) but baby steps for now. As the weather has turned cold I may as well focus on the inside I’ve neglected. Every time I looked at this dresser, that was most often hidden in a closet, I’ve envisioned legs on it to raise the height. Thank you @weslehto for playing along with my ideas when you have no idea what I have in mind. I appreciate your help more than you know.

Trying my hand at growing things 🌿. Over the years (and lots of dead plants) I've learned they love the natural light, and I have the perfect table to fill in our newly renovated dining room. What are your favorite, low maintenance indoor plants? (Thanks to @juliaterpstra for the vintage toolbox planter idea!)
