let’s get together

Holidays are nearly here! Another year is winding up and we all need a little break to take stock, celebrate the wins, reflect on the losses, and recharge for 2018. Usually around this time of year time feels like it speeds up. There’s more on the social calendar, plans take over and there’s often a rush to get the loose ends tied up before the clock strikes 12 on December 31st. Christmas or no-Christmas, New Year, holiday festivities, however you spend it, this time can be a joyous one when we focus on the people we share our lives with.

the ultimate guide to finding vegan friendly cosmetics

There are animal products in cosmetics. It’s a fact. Some are animal derived and others are animal by products. Some use ingredients animals were born to make (think milk, honey and beeswax), others use ingredients made from animals. It’s easy to tell animal made foods at the supermarket. It’s a lot harder to pick out animal made cosmetics. Are you vegetarian or vegan? Would you be shocked to learn many moisturisers, mascaras, eye shadows and blushers are made from animal products? Would you like to know exactly how to choose vegetarian and vegan friendly skincare, makeup and cosmetics?

green monday

After the mayhem of Black Friday, Green Monday is about to hit. Black Friday has become a great platform for consumers to save on goods offered on sale on that day, and Green Monday is following suit. Usually the second Monday in December, we thought we’d challenge ourselves (and maybe you!) to use this day to purchase goods with a ‘green’ focus. This can mean many things – ethical sourcing, local, sustainable products, environmentally aware design, cruelty free – however you interpret this. We all consume a lot, from food, household goods, clothes, entertainment, advertising, social media, travel, transport, it’s at the centre of our lives! We thought Green Monday 2017 would be a good opportunity to see if we can use the day to look at what we purchase and consume. The more we consume, the more we buy, the more resources we are using.
