I can’t believe how fast this last year has flown by. A lot has happened, and I have been struggling to catch up with everything. Meal prepping sounds overwhelming in that kind of situations but has actually helped me in the long run. It’s such a relief to know that you have foods that are ready to eat at home. I can’t wait to just chill out not meal prepping on weekends tho😅One more month to go to finish off this semester!!

Got to know so many new vegan, sustainable, fair trade fashion brands at the @fairtradefashionshow 💕
I first became aware of the horrible human exploitation and environmental damage by the fast fashion industry from the documentary @truecostmovie
I have since become more conscious about where and what I buy and love finding new ethical aligned brands at event like the #fairtradefashionshow

I always thought I wasn’t one for gold, but @auratenewyork has changed my mind ✨

I love the design of these Circle Earrings - simple, with fine edges along the bar and a swooping hoop that gently sways when I move my head. They’re my biggest earrings to date, and yet I don’t feel overdressed when I wear them! 😻

As a jewellery business, AUrate has put themselves in a fine position with their designs, ethics, and prices too. Check out the blog to find out more 👀

Had our first trip to the @thesourcebulkfoodsbulimba!! It was amazing!! Those little truffles on the board are amazing and that’s all that was left as they are that good!! As we move towards a more sustainable lifestyle, things around here are changing! I want the boys to grow up seeing trees, animals and exploring the world as we see it. 🌏

"Single-use" 😎 - Collins records show a four-fold increase in usage of this word since 2013. .

Language is important and has an effect on how we perceive things. Single-use is more than just a word, it encompasses a global movement to kick our addiction to disposable products🌿♻️. .

Plastic free bathroom - Step 2🌱
Tooth tabs! Toothpaste tubes are mostly made out of LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene). As they are hard to clean out and prepare they aren’t usually collected by recycling, meaning they are heading for landfill! Make the swap to tooth tabs! Simply chew until smooth then brush as normal 🌱🌿🌍

Good morning ☀️ I am enjoying my morning coffee in my @potteryfortheplanet keep cup. The best way to be waste free when drinking your morning brew 💗 Over the last couple of weeks we have been updating the online store with lots of beautiful pieces that make perfect gifts. Our Pana Coin Pouches and Cielo Key Rings are one of a kind, practical designs to be used everyday, thanks to Juan and Silvia's amazing work 👏🏽 We have sold out of this key ring above but have many more on the shop. Let us know if we can help you in any way and have a beautiful day.

A few of you have been asking! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS ETHICAL FASHION? I mean, you weren't really yelling at me, but I know it can be confusing. Ethical Fashion is a general term for clothes that were made in a way that is kind to people, kind to the planet, and kind to animals. Kind to the people making our clothes (ex: safe working conditions, livable wages, etc). Kind to the planet around us (ex: less pollution, secondhand shopping, zero waste production). And, finally, kind to animals (ex: not killing birds to make a down coat). Does that help you understand? Feel free to ask questions.

Unpackaged foods in old jars 💫 To make a shopping haul truly zero waste I take my own produce bags to the shop and reuse existing jars instead of buying new ones ♻️ This saves money and energy consumption (during the recycling process) 💰💨 I quite like the mismatch in shape, size and height- I think it adds a bit of life to my kitchen. 📸 Pictured you’ll see my shopping haul from @planetorganic and @asnatureintendeduk which includes rice flour pasta (GF🙌🏽), popcorn kernels, red lentils, black lentils, and chia seeds 🍿💕 We also bought dates and chocolate covered raisins but obviously they’ve gone already 🤦🏻‍♀️🍫 Not everything I buy is unpackaged/can be bought unpackaged in London (or I just haven’t discovered it yet🤷🏻‍♀️) but I’m enjoying the increase in availability and variety of unpackaged foods 🙌🏽🌍💚✨

Someone special had a birthday, so I used @whogivesacraptp toilet paper wrapping for the box and the bow! @redtedart showed me how to make this kirigami bow on you tube and I used my tiny Xmas tree from @ikeausa for this photo because it looks darn cute!

How many hats do you wear?
.
It’s a cliché alright, but when you start a business from scratch, you inevitably wear many hats. And not just the hat you set out to wear – that of a craftsperson, a social entrepreneur, or a marketer. On top of that, you also get the accountant’s fez and the admin assistant’s fedora added to the mix.
.
Often, you don’t have resources to outsource accounts, social media, or web design. Even if you would rather sit in a bath of hot treacle. And you struggle through it. I know I do – on my outsourcing list is web design and Italian transcreation.
.
While I will outsource the transcreation to a native Italian translator, I have continued to struggle with my website. And I imagine I will still struggle with it until:
.
1. I have the funds to get someone to do a proper job; or
.
2. I get to a point where not outsourcing it will start to hold my business back.
.
Often, businesses need to grow quicker. There are targets to be met and orders to be fulfilled. You just don’t have time to learn about the principles of SEO. Let alone fiddle about with social media, or learn to write like a native English speaker.
.
This is when it’s time to outsource. Outsourcing means you can spend more time doing what you do best and not get distracted by the nitty-gritty.
.
In my latest blogpost, I explore the reasons why brands with an ethical business model should consider outsourcing to others with similar values. This post looks at web design, admin, and printing - next edition is branding and marketing.
.
Link in profile, I'd love to know what you think!

Excited to announce that we have replaced our packaging with brown paper bags. These are much more environmentally friendly, and sustainable than a previous packaging, aligning with our ethos as a business.

Looking at old 📸 from our very first collections. This one was taken a little over a year ago when I was still living in #Hanoi. The #Hmoob #macrame collection was one of the first collections we had on our website. In fact, team #hmoob inspired me to create The World’s Corner. After meeting them and hearing their stories, I wanted to do whatever I could to help share their talent and stories of resilience with the 🌎. This journey has given me the opportunity to meet truly inspiring women who work hard everyday to provide for their families and build a better place for generations to come. Visit our website to learn more about our partners and our story ❤️ www.theworldscorner.com

When we buy sustainable fashion, we are investing in the future. Instead of buying low quality and quantity, we now buy carefully selected pieces that is based on quality. The difference? We really get to know how we want to express ourselves and we have a deep understanding that we are investing in our future. Join us on this revolution - away from low quality and into high quality. Check link in bio for quality brands. .

T U E S D A Y 🍁
.
We've been quiet on stories as its been a super busy but productive day. I made the longest to do list ever and by some miracle managed it all with a toddler in tow including 2 hours of driving.
.
I start my job next week so this is my last full week with Poppy for a while. I'm only working Mon & Tues till Christmas then Wed from Jan. I've been so lucky to have some extra time with Pops since July. It's also been a soul searching time for me too.
.
I feel stronger and more determined than ever that I won't settle in any area of life, especially with work. Because life really is too short.
.
Stolen this slightly cheesy pic from a recent mini task for a German beer brand.

Hope you've all had fab days #tuesdayvibes
