Repost: Why Sustainable?

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I would do a repost on why I am trying to pursue a sustainable lifestyle. This is a post from almost two years ago and it is quite interesting for me to revisit! I hope that you enjoy it and that you all have a lovely and ‘green’ […]

Partnering with Hope International

Since I have envisioned myself running a little shop on etsy, I always wanted to figure out how to use it to benefit others. There are so many great organizations out there and so many places to make donations and I was always a bit stumped when I thought about where this money should go. […]
