Decorating Sustainably for Autumn

Decorating Sustainably for Autumn

Marimar White-Espin

Transitioning with the planet's seasons and reflecting that into our home decor doesn't mean we need to walk into the fast homeware store and purchase the season's trendiest decor.  We're seeing fast homeware follow a similar path of fast fashion, with fashion fashion retailers adding home sections, such as H&M Home and Urban Outfitters. This over consumption of trends not only burdens the planet and it's resources, it also pressures consumers to spend more. So how can you sustainably decorate your home for autumn, budget friendly, and feel good about it? Check out some of our tips to make your...

How to use, wash and store your reusable eye masks

How to use, wash and store your reusable eye masks

Genevieve Fisher

You might have seen the latest addition to our sustainable self care line - reusable eye masks! These silicone masks are reusable, earth-friendly alternatives to those disposable sheet masks and single-use eye masks that have taken the beauty world by storm. What's great about our reusable eye masks is they're more effective than the single-use eye masks. Disposable sheet masks or under-eye masks tend to be absorbent, soaking up a lot of the product that's meant for your skin. In our experience they also seem to fit poorly and you never know how your skin will react to a new treatment. Our masks can be used with any...

How to use an alum stone as your aftershave - plus, a zero waste beard routine!

How to use an alum stone as your aftershave - plus, a zero waste beard routine!

Genevieve Fisher

Alum stones have been used as an aftershave for centuries, and were popular with ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks for medicinal and dermatological properties. When you use the alum stone after shaving, the salt has a natural effect of toning the skin and acting as a styptic, which stops bleeding from minor cuts. It's also antibacterial, wards off acne and breakouts, and can prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs. This summer, I finally asked my husband Jarod to try it on his face so I could get his thoughts and see how it felt as an aftershave for a beard & face care routine. Here's...

A guide to zero waste hair removal - from safety razors to sugar wax

A guide to zero waste hair removal - from safety razors to sugar wax

Genevieve Fisher

Plastic free hair removal is a bit of an experimental process. I've been using Marimar's sugar wax pretty much since I met her back in 2017. We went to a zero waste meetup together and she made a batch to hand out to all our friends - I've been hooked ever since! As far as my shaving routine, I used a safety razor for the first time in 2016 and I remember being pretty intimidated at first, but now it's like second nature. The thing I love about both of these zero waste swaps is that they save me a ton of time and money...
