How To Save The Planet With The Ocean Foundation

How To Save The Planet With The Ocean Foundation
Our magnificent oceans are in trouble. The negative impact of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity can already be seen today. Its adverse effects include rising air and water temperatures, ocean acidification, coral bleaching, sea level rise, and loss of marine mammals. There's still time to save the planet through giving back to important causes and using eco-friendly products, like bamboo toothbrushes. The Ocean Foundation....... Continue reading

NEW! Bamboo Toothbrush Gift And Travel Packs

NEW! Bamboo Toothbrush Gift And Travel Packs
Beautiful, simple, and quality designs have always driven my aesthetic. From the clothes I wear to the items kept at home. I often keep things for years because the quality allows for it and the designs are relatively timeless. So when people asked for recommendations on the most sustainable way to travel with their bamboo toothbrush, I explore the ritual of travel. In speaking with folks about their traveling rituals, I learned that:
1. People don't change their brushes as nearly as often as they should. The ADA recommends ~3 months.
2. Plastic tubes and cases are the most commonly used - and they don't allow for proper drying.
3. There's usually not a designated place for your brush and it takes "creativity" to find a hygienic and functional solution.
 
That's where our new travel and gift sets come in. Using cotton linen bags, they allow brushes to dry naturally, offering a loosely knitted cloth to absorb moisture. The ceramic toothbrush holder offers a small and portable stand solution to hold the brush upright, keeping it clean on travels. I love this set because everything is so easy to clean - a ritual that just about everyone does when returning home. The bag is washable - throw it in the laundry and the ceramic holder you can wash with water. It's all so simple, lightweight, and colorful. (Fun)ctional gift giving at its best 🎁
Forbes.com highlighted The Duet in travel set in red. With the Holiday season almost here (can't believe it's almost December!). Holiday Gift Guide 2019: Best Travel Gifts for Badass Feminists
🎁
"Feminists get stuff done, and they’re always multi-tasking, just like this great-looking toothbrush. Made from bamboo, it’s lightweight and compostable, as is the cotton linen bag that keeps it protected during travel. The handcrafted handle has red bristles and a painted red bottom to prevent water from pooling and to signify that 10% of sales go towards protecting women’s rights and reproductive health. This should provide enough incentive to keep brushing. Price: $12" Thank you to @loisaltermark for the feature.

3. Baseball Game
With the World Series taking place on October 30, there's still plenty of time to grab a few friends and find some cheap tickets. Watching baseball outside in early Fall is the perfect weather to enjoy the sport!

4. Outdoor Concerts
Every city has outdoor concerts - both free and ticketed. Organize a group outing with friends and family, but don't forget to bring a blanket if it's in a park. What better way than to bring snacks and beverages to enjoy!

5. Picnic In The Park
Another easy way to be outside and snack in the great outdoors. This is great for the cooler end of summer days - ones you can finally sit in the sun again without sweating too much. A picnic in the park is also a great way to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion.

6. Go Camping
There are only a few weekends left before temperatures start dropping at night, so look for some local spots you've been dying to try or return to. Don't forget to bring the s'mores.

7. Visit A Farmer's Market
What better way to shop local and restart healthy eating? After the summer indulgence, farmer's markets are great to visit and support your local economy. Plus, who doesn't love the fresh produce and maker's products?

8. Take A Day Trip
Even if you splurged on the end of summer vacation, you can still get out of the city and go someone nearby - you know, that place you've been talking about all summer ;)

9. Declutter Your Living Space
With the seasons changing, it's time to go through your living space and re-evaluate what should stay and what should go. Get rid of everything you haven't used in awhile. Start the new season on a fresh start, you'll feel so much better once you've let go of things that no longer bring you joy.

Why save the bees?

Why save the bees?

Why pollinator conservation?

Like all wildlife, pollinators are suffering from loss of habitat, climate change, and pesticide use. But unlike some wildlife (bears, elk, eagles, salmon…) they live all around us and we can all do things that will directly benefit them. Bee don’t need a lot of space, so planting flowers in your garden or local park really can make a difference. There is evidence that when there are more flowers, there are more bees, so you will have an impact.
