I'm very fortunate that I don't have to worry where my next meal is coming from or where I'm going to sleep at night. Because I'm in a position to consume things that go well beyond basic necessities, the very least I can do is to use my position to make the most responsible and ethical choices.

I abhor mindless, excessive consumption. And I wonder, "Am I the only one who got the memo about climate change, human rights violations, innocent sea life being drowned out by the increase in freighter traffic, etc., etc., etc.???"

This isn't information that only a few folks have access to. It's simply about being willing to listen, learn and to have your beliefs challenged. 

The world is crying out for our help and I want to be a part of the solution. It's been a challenge to figure out how I fit in a business model that is based on consumption.

What I know is that I can be better. And I'm not alone in wanting to do more to help save our home (aka earth). The amazing women I'm lucky to work with (from my lovely shop team to the talented makers and artists we represent) - want to be better too. From rethinking the materials we use, to eliminating plastic packaging to analyzing the lifecycle of every product we sell. We're committed to looking closer. The more the merrier! I hope you'll join us. xox
