Green washing alert!

While the Green Friday movement encourages people to shop more sustainably it’s important to not buy into the green washing of shopping, sustainable or not. If you actually do need a product I recommend to
Do your research first to make sure it’s really as sustainable as they advertise. Also, buy from small independent businesses.

Green Friday is also encouraging people to spend more time with their loved ones. Yup, you guessed it, in the green nature and that is my kinds of green Friday.

Many people feel sorry for our kids because of our low key and minimalist lifestyle, especially around Christmas. They seem to think they are missing out on fun.

Christmas used to be two tired parents because of working so hard to pay the lifestyle we used to live. Today there are fewer but more special dishes on the Christmas dinner table, there are fewer but more precious gifts and most importantly there are lots of arts and crafts, games and family time with not two tired parents.

Another sustainable gift idea that goes a long way!

Loose leaf tea blends are a great DIY gift that you can customize to the recipient to show just how much you care about your friend or loved one.

You can customize the tea blend to support people with sleep, more focused energy, reducing stress, clearer skin, and so many other challenges we all face sometimes.

See you then 😊
